Simple Mentions

Post by PeterJ » Sat Nov 18, 2017 3:05 pm

Good afternoon,

I'm just off out to see Paddington 2 (I'm so rock and roll!), but wanted to quickly mention that I have installed an extension to allow mentions. Just start with the '@' character and then start typing the username. You will then see a drop-down list which you can select from. The user you mention will then receive an alert in their notification panel.

Enjoy!

Great! I’m sure this feature won’t get abused, @PeterJ. ;)

@Ast A. Moore Users can disable notifications on their control panel if they wish. Hopefully they won't need to though.....

I'm pleased it works with users who have spaces in their username like yous.
