Announcement: New Extension (Simple Mentions)

Post by Franchise » Fri May 19, 2017 1:14 pm

I have just installed the Simple Mentions extension. This extension allows you to mention or '@' someone and then to have them notified you mentioned them in a post just like quoting them would do (without the quoted text of course). I have really looked forward to this because I know sometimes I want to simply let something be aware of something I know either they were also looking for or might care about or if I'm just curious of their thoughts. And sometimes they might miss it if it's buried in a post at the end or something.

Anyhow, you can either use the bbcode mention with the brackets like you would for a twitter embed for example or you can use the easy method of typing the '@' sign and then their username. If you type at least two letters after the '@' sign, a list will come up and you can click on who you want to mention. For example, [mention]Conye West[/mention] ...

Did you just type it all or click it when the list came up? I ask cuz that's technically not his username. Like.. [mention]Rookie_Monster[/mention]

Just saying that if you don't click the name when it comes up, it doesn't insert the bbcode. So like typing the at sign and then franchise all out doesn't work. But if I type the at sign and then fr, it'll bring a list up of usernames. The more I type, the more closer to franchise it'll show. Then I just click the Franchise one and it inserts the bbcode. Like [mention]Franchise[/mention] or [mention]Test_User[/mention] . There may be something with mobile where it pops up off the screen depending where you enter it or if you have a lot of at signs in plain text.

Really? I cleared the cache so it should work. Can anyone else try it? I've only tried from mobile. Are you typing anything after the at sign? It won't bring up users until at least two letters are typed. [mention]Conye West[/mention]

The one time I've seen it sometimes doesn't bring it up is if you have @ signs in the post but don't choose a user. Like it's still waiting for the first @ sign to be completed or something.

But you didn't answer my question. What exactly are you typing? Because if I type the at and two letters, it comes up right away. [mention]Rookie_Monster[/mention] And then I click the user I want and it puts the mention bbcode around the user.

[mention]Conye West[/mention] Sorry about that. It seems that they buried a permissions setting that wasn't enabled by default for all users. Which is not only pointless given it's the purpose of the extension but also would have been nice had the page mentioned that in the download page for the extension.

Anyhow, it should be fixed for everyone now as I tried it with the test user. Can someone confirm?
