New mention function
« on: August 09, 2014, 01:19:22 pm »
The way this is supposed to work, that if you mention someone, and you can tag them by adding @ at the beginning of the username, it links to their profile automatically and will send a private message to that person that they have been mentioned. Settings can be changed in profile/mentions/settings to add an email notice if someone tags your username, or you can also remove any kind of notification. A list of mentions will also be created for you to keep track.

I'll pick someone as an example, how about @thecfarm ? :)

That looks handy. I was just this morning thinking that the member looking at the Bombardier needed to get in touch with Sprucebunny.

To be clear, you have to add the@ to the front of a username for it to have any new effect or message sent, and you can disable any notifications if you don't want to get them. Simply typing the name as usually done, will have no new effect.  :)

I think there was a permissions problem with this function. I need to know if it is working now if someone cares to test it here.
