[New option] Tag @member on your forum

Post by Leviosa on December 8th 2014, 3:07 pm

First topic message reminder :


Tag @member on your forum

Dear Forumotion members

Forumotion has set-up a mention tagging system for our forums. We hope you enjoy this new option created especially to your forum Smile

1- What is the purpose mention tag ?

It helps members to tag other members by using @username
It gives you the ability to identify and reference people in a post.

2- How mentions work on Forumotion forum?

Add On the Administrative panel (set up permissions)

Via the administrative panel you can allow or not allow your members to use the option.
Now, go to your administrative panel:

AP>> General>> Messages & e-mail>> Configuration>> "Keywords tags permissions"


You will have 3 options:


1- Option not available
2- Option available to all your members
3- Option available to groups:




Add Mention on the front

- Posts
Tag a user by using @username





When you click on @mention, you'll have the user profile appearing


- Your profile

You can receive notifications via the toolbar or email: Front>> Profile>> Notifications


- Notifications

*Via the profile


*Via the toolbar



Add Add Please note:

-
If you have a username with a space or special characters, you must add " " After the @ and at the end of the name ( See Example Code Below )
Example:
Code:
@"ange tuteur"

Code:
@"Empire_1"



Delete Delete Limitations of the system

Of course it won't work for all username

Some example that won't work

@
test@sd.com
@<3Natalia<3
@#Natalia (# Hashtag will be taken into account not @)
@ won't be taken into account inside code





A ForuMotion Important Announcement

I just turned this feature on on my forum to be able to wish someone a happy birthday and I went under my profile and the checkbox to receive a notification when I get tagged won't let me check it. It's greyed out/not selectable. Any idea why? forum url http://xwlleague.forumotion.com/

Do you mean the box for the toolbsr was grayed out, because the email option is not available for this new option?

The notification for "your username being tagged on a topic" isn't able to be checked for some reason, despite me having them set to on for all members, and I don't know why. It's whited out and not clickable

I don't understand, I set it in the back end and tested it out a couple different ways, but I don't see any difference, and no notifications via toolbar either

I'm curious, before I implement this. I have the toolbar turned off at the moment. If I activate the toolbar, will all of the members also have to log in to their profile and "opt-in" to activate notifications, or will they be turned on by default?

I have a few members that only have limited internet and log in perhaps monthly. Getting everyone to turn on notifications may be difficult.

Thanks!

The notifications are on by default.

Will the option to enable notifications by email ever be allowed?

The description says:
"- Your profile

You can receive notifications via the toolbar or email: Front>> Profile>> Notifications"

but as pointed out, the option "Your username tagged on a topic" for email has a check box that is disabled in the source.

If it is not available, why have the check-box visible at all?
It is confusing and should be removed if this feature isn't available.

Will it ever be or is there any workaround to enable it?

thanks!

This is not the place to ask for support. Please start a support topic in the correct section. This topic is just to announce the new options.

I am still seeing members who do not know how to tag usernames that are not just one word. Everyone please read the first post again, especially the last part.
