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.

Hi DB Tech, very very nice mod. Users are loving it! I have a question.

Is it possible to remove the "tag users" block in threads? Or maybe disable tagging altogether? Thank you!

I think I've found a bug.

The mention BBcode is breaking other custom BBcode. On my site, I have 2 custom buttons. One adds a [ item] tag, the other adds a [ JUMP] tag. Both are turned into [ MENTION] tags with this mod installed (and with it disabled as well).

Any idea?

I'm afraid my forum is relatively small and ad-free. Perhaps in the future. You have some very nice mods that I'd gladly spend money on if my site generated revenue!

Sorry, there's no way for me to debug custom BBCode.

That's not currently an option, sorry.

On their site I made feature request for this and more. For example, I suggested possibility that certain usergroups can mention whole usergroups or sets of usergroups (using defined words).

For example:

@moderators (all of moderators)
@management (all of moderators, s.moderators and admins).

You could go there and support this feature request.

I like this mod and installed it. But there are a few snags.

One one style, the postbit leg shows up fine. In the other styles (the rest are based off of VB) the alignment's completely off. In options I chose to have it automatically inserted. Is there a way to fix this?

I'm also having the bbcode problem. They're all showing up as *mention*.

When I reply to a thread and use a @mention, it does a double post. I am using version 4.1.4, but can confirm it did it on 4.1.3 as well.

That's due to the HTML/CSS bug in Abe's Post Thanks hack. We can't do anything about that unfortunately

I've not been able to replicate that on any testing environment, nor has anyone on our site reported it before.

Could you try leaving only this mod enabled while disabling all others?

That didn't work, however I wanted to test posting in advanced reply, which took me to a heading error and that took me to a modified functions file. Once I re-uploaded that file, it worked. Thanks!
