How to mention another user!

Post by Protochad »

To mention another user in your post you can type the @ symbol immediately followed by their username (with no space in between). Usernames are case sensitive. A small dropdown menu should appear once you begin typing after the @ symbol to helpo you select the right user in case you can't remember the exact spelling. You will notice that the editor automatically places the "mention" bbcode tags around the name for you.

Example: To mention me in a post simply begin typing "@Protochad" and select the name from the dropdown. All active user mentions will appear green like this: @Protochad, if the name isn't green in your post that means you've likely mistyped the username or used the wrong case for a letter.

As with all other tagging and embedding functions you can test to make sure your mentions are active by previewing your posts before you submit them.
