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.

Postbit can be changed in the Pro version

It's to prevent the mod trying to match the converted code to another username on post edit.

Yes, though we are making this optional in the Pro version v1.1

vBShout v5.2.2 is required for this mod to work when vBShout is also installed.

Thank DB.

The tagging works now (shows up in the thread) but it's not notifying the person that they have been tagged. Any reason why?

There shouldn't be a reason for that, no.

Later today we're gonna release v1.1, you can wait for that and see if the problem has been resolved.

Dang. This is such a great idea but I really need people to be notified when they're tagged, otherwise its worthless. Are they supposed to get notified via PM?

People get notified through the notifications window. The same window that says you have X new PMs, X new reputation comments, etc.

So they don't get a PM, but they do get notified.

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present version 1.1 of [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.
This version introduces several major new features that users have requested, and some others we were unable to fit in v1.0.

Statistics Page: Display which users are the most active, both at tagging and being tagged. Same with mentions. This is a great way to encourage your members to utilise the feature and increase activity!

Post Previews: See the context of the post you were mentioned in! (Hard limit of 20 characters either way in Lite version)

BBCode Integration: A button for mentioning has been added to the BBCode toolbar – Users no longer need to remember the @; command.

Change look of Mentioned usernames: Allows you to use BBCode to make mentioned usernames stand out. Only underline is available in Lite.

Per Forum Settings: Allows you to turn tagging on/off per forum (disables the tag cloud) and mentioning per forum (Disables mention notifications from that forum)


We hope you enjoy this new version

Because your question was asked by others, and by answering the others' question, I automatically answered yours

The new MENTION BBCode can be disabled in the BBCode Manager (the one you add / edit custom BBCode in)

Moving the bar is now a Pro feature It can be moved to below the Active Users list

The only other way of doing it would be to edit the code, which isn't something we can support, unfortunately

It should be in the Community menu
