Solved Mention option

Post by kcryss on May 12th 2020, 4:59 pm

Technical Details


Forum version : #ModernBB
Position : Administrator
Concerned browser(s) : Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome
Who the problem concerns : All members
Forum link : https://soapsnlotions.forumotion.net/

Description of problem

I'm trying to get the forum to a point where typing in the @ sign will give users the ability to find a member and "mention" them without typing in their full user name.

I tried the option here: https://help.forumotion.com/t140358-make-the-mentioning-system-easier-to-use#1104141

But it doesn't work.

Do you already have the mention system activated in the admin panel?

Where is the option? I've looked everywhere ... or thought I did anyway.

hello
 
on the code did you change the var version to your version?


Modifications : At the top of the script you will see a version variable. Make sure that the number corresponds to your forum version

Ok, I corrected to show modernbb

/* FORUM VERSIONS
* 0 = PHPBB2
* 1 = PHPBB3
* 2 = PUNBB
* 3 = INVISION
* 4 = MODERNBB
* 5 = AWESOMEBB
*/
$(function() {
var version = 4;

Also, found a line referencing Quick Reply in the code and turned on quick reply ... still nothing.

It doesn't work. I type the @ sign and then start typing a user name, and not getting a popup to select a user.

Hey @kcryss,

Welcome to Forumotion Support Forum! You are used the first option that add a quick way to mention, like the example:
Mention option Taggeg10
But in the meantime what you want is: https://fmdesign.forumotion.com/t943-topic (i believe)

Are you doing the one that adds a button in the editor?  If yes, did you do the CSS part?


Mention option Slgray10

Yes, that is exactly what I was trying to do. I thought the one I was following was going to allow that to happen. I will try the other link you provided.

I didn't know there was an activation option for CSS, but I have been making changes via css and they are working. Is there something I might be missing?
