Is it mentions not working anymore? I tried in my site and nothing happen, but I tried here and also is not working. I type @ and first letters of the name but the list with names is not showing like a few months ago. Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks
@Subzero-mb Working for me. Maybe you have some interfering browser-plugins?
@Ralf H. maybe is that, I am using iexplorer 10 from the office but the browser has nothing special installed...
As you see in the previous message, even writing manually your name the forum does not include the link to your profile and I can imagine you are reciving nothing from this notification I have tried
@Subzero-mb, working for me too.
@Subzero-mb, You will need to wait for the drop-down to appear and select the user from the list otherwise it won't work correctly This is from IE10.
@Jim M I have been like 1 minute waiting for the drop-down to appear but nothing happen. I do not know why it is happening, I am in the office but I will try in my house in 1 hour if it is working there.
I am now in my house with Firefox in a Macbook and nothing, for me it is not working @Jim M @Marius ...
What am I doing wrong? If it is not working for me in windows neither in mac is because:
- I am not doing correctly
- I have some restriction in my account
Sorry to bother you with this stupid question, but as I remember this was as easy as write a "@" and then type the first 3 letters of the user name and in 1 or 2 seconds appear a list with names, but now I don't know why it is not working...
Ok now it is solve, it was because I use the first letter in capital as Jim or Marius display. To mention you should write everything in lowcase @Jim M @Marius
Is not this point something could be improve to take in account lower and high case letters? it does not seem very intuitive for every user of our forums
It’s not case-sensitive as far as I can see.
As @Ralf H. mentioned, it is not case sensitive.
Thanks to everyone. I am not sure what happen but it seems is not working perfectly for me, sometimes appear the list, sametimes not... I was thinking to record a video showing how it works.
Anyway thanks for your time helping me
@gfcguy ... I'm having issues with this on my site as well - I'm checking to see if I can mention myself here to see if this works on another IPB4 community. If this works for me here then the issue may be e-mail through my host server end (I am not using Mandrill)
Do @ mentions notify you via email or via PM? I'm getting neither, and so perhaps this is a browser plug-in issue brought up earlier in this thread by Ralf
I can mention myself here. I did not know this thing.
Depends on what you have your notifications set as for mentions: options are a notification or an email
