[Solved] using the "@" feature
#1
Edit: Cool feature that "@[name]" changes color by the way Big Grin

Is that the way to "mention people in a post"?

One time I got an alert like that but I'm still not sure how to do it :/

Thanks. I wrote that plugin just for our forum but now several other (over 20) forums use it as well. It uses Euan T.'s MyAlerts to send the alerts and is built upon ideas freely distributed by SuperNovaAO.

Like this:

Code:
@Roichlem
or
Code:
@"Roichlem"

if the name has spaces in it like @News Puppet then you have to use the double quotes, otherwise just use the simple version.

Technically, you should receive an alert for my quoting your post and an alert for this mention:

@Roichlem

yes, @Roichlem, placing an '@' sign in front of the users name will get allow the forum to notify the user that they are being talked about.
