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.

besides the lack of notification, i thought it was also odd there is no list of site wide hashtags anywhere...latest hashtags, popular hashtags.....nothing....

so basically it feels hollow and if you do not subscribe to a hashtag when u first read it then think of it later, it can be difficult to find again....its alot of room to improve, i wouldnt know where to even start tho

Maybe I'm missing something here, but why would a product for user tagging be criticized for not performing the unrelated task of hashtags?

I recently tested this product so that I could add support for it to one of my products, and I found it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Hashtags ARE NOT part of the advertised features.

it is pretty easy to see that this is in fact not true......if you look...

in fact it is perhaps the main draw for the paid version at all....and its a critic because we all paid 80$ for it but once implementing you see what the issues are....

I agree, I added FR for these functions.

I think that they could make it in very useful additional level of data integration via hashtags, but at the moment, it is only one feature that doesn't work as it should.

I see it only as a way to support them, by buying their pro version, without really getting real value. But I hoped I would also get some real value.

Anyone has a security problem with this plugin? My site got flagged as "hacked" in google and when I removed the plugin it was fine.

There are no known security vulnerabilities in this plugin

If you have any actual evidence to back up your claim, please feel free to provide it.

Curious i just downloaded the plugin and i managed to install it correctly.

I can @Username no problem, and all of the requirements to tag etc work fine.

Only thing i cant do is get a notification from the top of the forum. I goto my profile and i can see all the mentions there but i have to ACTUALLY know that i have been tagged to actually go there.

So a little notification stating i have been tagged in a post is not working?

Can someone clarify ?

Thanks

EDIT:

NEVERMIND

I was trying to mention myself testing it - it dosnt work - so i made a demouser and mentioned my main username and it worked ;D

Is it possible to 'turn off' selected members so they don't get the email telling them they were mentioned/tagged?

Hi, I have this mod installed on 4.2.5 and it's working great, thanks!
I also have MarkFL: Welcome Threads installed which creates a welcome thread automatically when someone registers. I've edited the template and it successfully @ tags the member, but a notification isn't displayed for them. How would I get the notification to display please?
Thanks

When you say you edited the template, what exactly did you do? Are you talking about the setting in my product, specifically "New User Post Format?"

I suspect the tagging notification is hooked at a standard vB post creation location. Now, this may or may not work...I haven't tested it, but try adding this to my plugin that creates the thread, at the very beginning:

Hi Mark, yes it's the "New User Post Format", I've set it to:

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

How exactly would I add that to the plugin? Sorry I'm still new to vBulletin!

Thanks

In the "Plugin Manager" locate the plugin titled "Post Welcoming Thread To Newly Registered User" and click edit.

Add that line to the very top of the plugin and click save. Then see if it works.
