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.

I searched "dbtech" and "mention.png" everywhere in the system, plugins, templates, phrases, even post table, but couldn't find anything that could possibly link to this file, any ideas? Thanks!
Looks like a cached file on your server somewhere, I can't really say though

Have you tried it with a default (unmodified) style?

Is there a minimum length for usernames to work with the @user feature? And if so, how can you increase/decrease it? We have some members with two characters.

It can work with 1 character usernames, but only if your "minimum username length" setting allows it.

In other words, if you use a non-compliant "username change" mod (as opposed to ours) or have changed the vBOption without also renaming those users, it may cause an issue.

Scenario:
- Your minimum username length is set to 3
- You manually renamed a user / used another username change mod and the user changed it to for instance just "L"

You'll be unable to mention this person until you update the vBOption.

So I changed the minimum length to 2 characters in my default vbulletin settings. Are there any other options to edit/update to enable a screenname like 'TJ"?

Hi FillipDT, thank you for the mod (: saving up for the full version. Looks really nice.

This is a minor style, can you update the mod so the line doesn't cross on the date? ex
http://forum.nihonomaru.com/members/ellymate.263627/

http://s1.ipicture.ru/uploads/20131007/cW6jY2eg.jpg

--------------

There is another issue, can you add this in a feature? in an option? like to replace the "Mention" tab under "Visitors messages", like a sub category - just like it works in "My Activity" Because if you have a fixed style, not a wide one, the profile gets messy:

http://s2.ipicture.ru/uploads/20131007/OFihUic4.jpg

--------------

How can i remove this part in bold? it is messing with my forum footer and too long " User Alert System provided by Advanced User Tagging (Lite) - vBulletin Mods & Addons"

For the line issue add this to your additional.css

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To remove the branding in the footer, you would need to purchase the Branding Free, from their website, for the mod, http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/produ...d-user-tagging

This is because you have changed the character set of some of your database tables without setting the global default for the entire database.

Please also perform those changes for the User Tagging tables. You should also bring such errors to your system administrator before posting them to us, as we are unable to resolve issues in the configuration made by your system administrator.

Update

Hotfix: PHP 5.4 Compatibility fixes


This does not guarantee the mod is error free on PHP 5.4, but it will take care of the reported errors. Thank you all for your reports

Yeah, you can enter each table and edit the "collation" for each database table and use the "Operations" tab to change the "collation" for the entire database as well as individual tables
