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.

Seems like the post cache is changing or something.

What happens if you edit the post, remove any such errorenous code, then re-saving the post?

same

I disabled the usertags. everything works. when i enabled usertags and clicked on edit, the " smilieid="526" class="inlineimg" /> appeared again in the body of the message. I edited it over and save but the resulting message still has that class=inlineimg.

is there a way to disable mentions in quotes?

what happens is that one guy mentions someone in a post, that post get re-quoted several times, and the person gets notifications for being mentioned in a quote... I think that's unnecessary.

also the render BBcode plugin will break the Email bbcode.

if you write [email][email protected][/email]

and :p happens to be an emoticon, then the email will not display properly.

There's currently no way to block mentions in quotes, but we're going to improve the mentioning in the future, which also goes for the email business.

This suddenly stopped working for me... all of the mentions that were working before have turned into [MENTION]@username[/MENTION] in just plain text.

Any idea why that would have happened?

The way mentions are created was updated, that could be why. It hasn't happened for anyone else though...

New mentions still work fine I trust

This thread was updated on Aug 5th, I updated the mod on my forum around Aug 17th... so I'm sure I have the newest file.

I just tested it with a new post, it shows up at @username plain text, no link or notification.

Hmmm... I don't think anything has changed on the forum that would have affected it, but I'll try disabling other mods to test.
