Advanced @User Tagging: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.

The @user Tagging mod is designed to increase activity on your forum by allowing members to mention each other in posts when talking about them.
This is done in a very easy way, very similar to how Twitter mentions people. We use @ ; as the tags, so for instance you could say:
----
This new mod from @Dragonbyte Tech; is pretty cool.
----
The “@DragonByte Tech;” Will become a link to the DragonByte Tech users profile, it will also inform DragonByte Tech they had been mentioned, and link to the relevant thread/post via a new area in the profile section, as well as a new tab in the shoutbox.

It also allows members to “tag” the thread for specific other members by inputting their usernames in the tag box above the posts of the thread.

This is a great way to increase your forum activity with no extra admin input required – people will start to mention posts/threads to their friends, which will increase the amount of posting. This is especially useful of forums which have an international contingent (so threads posted in during the night for some of your members don't go overlooked) or forums which have a lot of posts/threads each day – again to make sure that a post a person might want to read doesn't get lost in the crowd.

Very useful post -- thanks. Found the solution for those of us with standard member profile URLs posted on DBTech's ecellent site: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/f51/p...187/#post46344 On edit: actually that DBTech htaccess change didn't work for me. I had to set VBSEO to not rewrite my member profiles and that has worked.

For my member profiles I am using the following URL rewrite format:

members/[user_name]-[user_id].html

Therefore the notifications links that this plugin generates need to be changed.

In upload/dbtech/usertag/hooks/notifications_list.php, make the following changes:

On line 14, change:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

On line 23, change:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

On line 32, change:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This is for my specific vBSEO URL rewrite format. If you're using a different format, you'll have to modify the code to be compatible.

Hope this helps someone else out.

Problem is, I've not been able to come up with a way to do that that doesn't also break for non-vBSEO users

Just a thought, what about an option in the settings menu to check if vbseo is installed, if it is write a URL in one way, if not the regular way.

The problem is the "one way" for vBSEO. I cannot figure out how to get URLs to specific tabs to work in vBSEO.

Any way to get the landing tab on the profile to be ?tab=mentions instead of hashMentions?

Doesn't work otherwise on mine by the looks of it.

It does do that by default, but custom URL rewriting software like vBSEO will break it. It works fine with the default vB SEO URLs though

After upgrading from 2.0.4 to 3.0.5, On the settings page, under Forum Integration, the following error is displayed:

An error occurred while processing the bitfield files, the following information was returned:

And there's no other information except the above line.

I can mention users, but the users are unable to get notifications. Appreciate a quick solution on this please.

Try rebuilding the bitfields by expanding the Rebuild ACP section and hitting "Rebuild Bitfields".

In that case, could you please PM me with an AdminCP account as well as an FTP account? That'll let me get to the bottom of this

I have seached the mod but can't find the answer.

Is there anyway to stop quote and tagging notifications from users that are on your ignore list ?

If we uninstall this addon would it also remove the mention code in the posts?

I uploaded all the files like it requested, then I installed the XML file.

But this error came up

httpdocs/boxingforum/dbtech/usertag/includes/class_install.php appears to be missing!
