Now you can tag someone in a post

#1 Post by mikey » Tue Apr 02, 2019 11:40 pm

I added a feature so you can tag someone in a post. To do so just type the @ symbol and start typing their username (no space). A drop down menu will show up with usernames that are spelled similarly. Just click on the user you want to tag and it will insert a code that notifies the user when the post is made. Simple and cool tool to bring someone's attention to a post, inviting them to view or respond.


Just tag someone like this @ddunwood

@mikey

You need to type the first couple of letters and wait for the drop down. Then choose the user from the drop down

Also, each user has to have their settings set to get email notifications

There are some simple steps to be taken to get these notifications via email and board notifications.

First you click on the word "Notifications" next to your username on the right side of the page

Then you click on "Settings"

Then you make sure both notification options are chosen for "Someone mentioned me" and click the "Submit" button.

This will enable the feature completely and you will get notifications. Also note, you can change other notification settings there too.
