    stupid forum question

    but how do you do the "mention" thing in a thread? I am familiar with standard message board tags but have never seen that one.

    #2
    You just type "@[insert member screen name here]"

    The forum will automatically link the mention to the member. Assuming you've actually successfully mentioned a member, of course. (I.e. spelled their full screen name correctly.)

      IIRC, I've had issue @'ing folks with spaces (" ") in their name. For example: [MENTION=11100]M. Montaigne[/MENTION], [MENTION=8331]P J[/MENTION], or [MENTION=6470]John Hamnett[/MENTION].

      Any way around that? Or does it work, once I actually post it? (I've only noticed it in post previews) - One way to find out, eh?...

      EDIT - Correctedly-stood: Looks like it works; just not in preview mode.

          Success!
          edit1: [MENTION=8331]PJ[/MENTION] might also work?

          edit2: Looks like spaces are superfluous, just like in email, etc.

            Further-EDITed: Looks like *all* instances of @'ing simply preview incorrectly (or at least look as if they will not "mention" the member). So, there's that, [MENTION=4615]yoyorobbo[/MENTION].

                    You can also type [MENTION ](no space, obviously) membername[ /MENTION].
