(NE) Mention list enhancements

I did not understand what icons you can explain to me?

What do the icons represent?

As mentioned in the description of the plugin, they represent the options that have been chosen by the person in the list for their notifications. Inline, by default, is a bell (look at the top of this site....bell = notification list = inline) and email, by default, is an envelope (explains that, I think)

Where do these icons come from?

As per the settings, they are font-awesome icons. Refer to http://fontawesome.io/icons/ for the full list.

If someone has inline notifications for mentions enabled then, by default, a dark bell is displayed (fa-bell) and if disabled then, by default, a light bell is display (fa-bell-o)

If someone has email notifications for mentions enabled then, by default, a dark envelope is displayed (fa-envelope) and if disabled then, by default, a light envelope is displayed (fa-envelope-o)

How do I change them?

Use the plugin settings and replace the icon reference in the relevant fields. And don't leave off the fa- otherwise it won't display the icon....I may guard against that if people make the mistake too many times.

This doesn't seem to work well for me.  Perhaps it is because I have large groups??  But when I @ mention a group it just comes up blank.  The group name is correct.  The group names are stylized so not sure if that may be affecting it.

It's because you are expecting this plugin to do something that it is not advertised as doing - it doesn't allow you to mention groups, it changes the look/content of the results of the default mention behavior, which is a user list.

If you want a group mention plugin then:

Can you please add a option to display the mentioned user name with "formattedname" of its group? Like your "Group Mention" plugin. So, instead of classical mention box like: @Nathan Explosion will be displayed @Nathan ExplosionWith or without the "@". Eg. When you mention someone, it will be displayed like that: John Doe Adm | John Doe Mod  John Doe Premium.

I haven't developed a "Group Mention" plugin.

Your request is outside of my intended scope of the plugin, really - the plugin was intended to enhance the list displayed as you type, and not to modify the functionality or look of the resulting mention. Additionally, the resulting mention is placed in via the ipsmention CKEDITOR plugin, and I have no plans at all to even attempt to modify that. If I do decide to put this feature in then it will not affect the look of the mention when it is viewed in the editor - but will affect the mention when the post is viewed instead (i.e. it will look normal in the editor, but would appear coloured when viewing the post)

Yes. I was thinking about this one from MyBB: https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=29

Hi Nathan,
Could you please advice on a problem with your plugin? For some reason when I uncheck the "All groups" box and try to check only some of my groups it lets me do it, but after I save settings it shows up only with an "Administrator" group highlighted. The rest is unchecked.

No matter which group(s) I select - after saving only the first one is selected. That's why I can't restrict a couple of groups to be visible while tagging.

It's not happening with other plugins in the same IPBoard installation. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Thanks,
Abby
