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.

Hmm, sounds like it could be a mod conflict somewhere. I've had no problems modifying messages or titles.
Not entirely sure what I can do about it tbh

I'm getting this error message when trying to approve moderated posts in the admin panel (it comes after I click on save)

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /*/*/public_html/forums/dbtech/usertag/hooks/postdata_presave.php on line 54

And the posts that I've set to approve, stay moderated, because of the above error. Any ideas?

(When I disable the mod, the approval goes through properly)

Edit: This also applies for when I try to move a thread. I get the same error messages.

Can you please re-download the files and re-upload them - I believe I fixed this but it may have been after 1.1 was released.

Håper det hjelper

Hiya

I've installed this mod, works okay. Got a question though.

When I type @username; to tag a user in a post, then it is shown as @username: in the post. I thought it shouldnt have shown @ and : in the final post but those were just to tag the users? Is that's how it works? Sorry there are no clear instructions in the readme file.

Cheers

It is indeed correct that it shows @ and :, because on most forums (and indeed also twitter), the @ char is used as a substitute for the [quote] tag.

In the Pro version, you can disable the @, though.

You really need to implement some measures for forum permissions. I have private forums, and when a user without access to those forums is tagged, they still receive a notification.

I see that when a user is mentioned in a private forum that they do not have access to, they will receive notice saying "1 Notification" but when they click on it, the list shows up empty.

(edited because I figured out how to turn off the thread tagging altogether!)

Thanks so much for this mod, I have been looking for something like this forever. Even without the permission settings, it's fantastic for the public forum.

It's performance intensive to check forum permissions before inserting the notification, that's why that choice was made as a lesser evil.
