    If it doesn't cause any issue, it means it's working.

    @kRSB you add information it's compatible with IPB 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, yet you forgot to mark it Compatibility for 4.6. 

    I changed it, but the file is still under review 😕

    !!! This is great news.

    My anxiety is kicking in anyway 😆 . Perhaps @kRSB can take a look and possibly update the file page to reflect that it's compatible with 4.6? 🙏

    Couldn't agree more.  I don't rest easy unless and until the developer actually takes the time to verify compatibility.

    Submitted app to include 4.6 compatibility, waiting on approval now! 😛

    Any update on this free plugin mate? 

    Not yet sorry, it's been a busy summer for me. It should be ready in september normally when I have some more time

    Hi, Is this working for 4.6?

    Should be working for 4.6 yes, let me know if you run into any issues

    @kRSB Giving above suggestion a bump please. Can you please add it? Thanks!

    Sorry for late reply, seem to have missed it. I can look into adding this as a new free plugin since it shouldn't be much work but I rather keep the group mention plugin specific to groups.

    Yeah, I know of these plugins, but I'm afraid I don't feel comfortable with letting a 3rd party get involved with such a complex (imho) feature.

    I'd feel much better if that was a core feature developed and supported by IPS themselves.

    I'm the developer of the group mention plugin. If it makes you feel more comfortable, the notifications itself are still done by the IPS system, it uses the same system of IPS of a single user mention.

    @kRSB- We are on the latest version but one of our members has the following groups:

    Yet whenever we tag him with a group called "Low Council" --> 
    He gets notified despite not being a part of this group.

    Similar things have been reported by other users on our forums too.
    Is there nothing we can do to fix this?




    Hey Aldro, if possible could you pm me your ACP details so I could take a look at what goes wrong?

    What there going to be a 4.5 version released?

    Hey Bluto, I was in the middle of upgrading my app to 4.5 but then I noticed that IPS implemented something similar in 4.5. If you go to a member profile in 4.5 ACP and click on "Edit Password" you will see an option to reset the member their pass. You can also do it for groups by going in ACP to Members -> Force Password Reset button.

    IPB their way works differently than this app, but i'm not sure if it's still useful for you guys to update this app? What do you guys think?

    @kRSB - Hi, I have group mention setup and it was working fine until recently it gives an error when clicking on the group link

    Error - 

    Error: Class 'IPS\groupmention\modules\admin\groupmention\groups' not found (0)
    #0 /home/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(109): IPS\Dispatcher\_Admin->init()
    #1 /home/admin/index.php(14): IPS\_Dispatcher::i()
    #2 {main}

    It redirects to admincp

    Hey @James101,

    I'm having some trouble trying to reproduce the error you are getting. 


    For example see the screenshot above, does it crash when you click on "@Members" ?


  9. @Afrodude @breatheheavy @Erosik

    I have pushed an update where the group notifications will be send via the background queue system of IPB, this should fix the timeouts of groups with a large number of members. I tested it myself on a group with 40k members and it worked.

    In your setting of group mentions there is a new checkbox which you can toggle to enable this


    You can also follow up the background task in your acp dashboard:


    Hopefully it fixes it as well for you guys

    @kRSB -- A member is reporting that he has twice now been notified despite not being a part of particular group. Is this a known bug? Can I fix it somehow?

    Hey, it's the first time I hear about this so it's not a known bug.  He might be getting a notification because of these:

    - user has the group as secondary group

    - user is subscribed to the topic. 

    - user is following the author

  11. On 11/7/2020 at 11:50 PM, Afrodude said:

    I believe that he has the same issue whenever the group has a huge number like 20K or more,

    That's possible, but his total member count is only 4k so 😕

    I'm also currently working to see if I can find a solution for that.

    On 11/9/2020 at 10:20 AM, Erosik said:

    I can ask you to make some quicker contact like Discord or something, we care about time to fix it, and with that it can be a little more fun

    Feel free to send me a pm with your discord. Also could you maybe test this:

    - mention a group with a low amount of users in -> does it give an error?

    - mention a group with a high amount of users in -> does it give an error?

  12. On 11/6/2020 at 11:32 AM, Erosik said:

    Tell me, you've encountered a mistake that if I want to post a new topic in the forum and mark more groups, I get a mistake in the forum? I have no idea what the problem is, whether from the forum or the plugin.


    Hey, no it's completely fine to mention multiple groups in 1 post. I don't think that error is related to the plugin but it's best that you check the system logs in acp or ask your system admin to check the server logs to see why that error happened.

  13. 22 hours ago, Erosik said:

    Hello. I have a problem with the application, namely I uploaded it via marketplace to my forum, activated it, set permissions, but when creating a new topic I have no options anywhere to select groups to mark. Where can the problem lie, how to fix it?

    Hey @Erosik, it works the same way as user mentions. If you start typing @ then type the groupname and you will see it

  14. On 9/27/2020 at 6:40 PM, AlexJ said:

    Can you also add the feature so that we get @ symbol next to quote - before or after - this way rather then quoting full post, we can directly tag, user ID through mention. Thanks



    Hey @AlexJ, sorry I'm not following completely. What do you mean with user ID? This app mentions groups not a single user.

  15. On 9/16/2020 at 11:21 PM, Afrodude said:

    I use it on group that has 50K members and more. I don't know if you can improve that, so it doesn't cause this issue.

    I'm planning to look into this, so the notifications can be send in a queue when it's lots of them


    On 9/25/2020 at 1:16 AM, breatheheavy said:

    Hi there. I tried using this on 4.5 but didn't receive any notifications on several accounts I tried testing 😕 @kRSB Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Oops, just realized this wasn't updated for 4.5 yet. Any word on if it will be would be awesome. I really liked this tool. Thank you. 🙏 

    Submitted app update for 4.5. It's under review currently

  16. 21 hours ago, Afrodude said:

    @kRSB Is there any specific number of any group this addon can handle? Because many times whenever I mention a huge number of a group it takes too long to post the reply, and whenever you look at the topics list on the forum my reply doesn't show as I was the last one replied to that topic. 

    Hey, that's hard to say. I currently use it on a board where we mention around 250 members without any slowing down. It can also be depend on your server setup so hard to put a specific number on it.

    @kRSB - Hi, will you update this for IPB 4.5? I really liked the plugin!

    Yes I will, have you tried it on 4.5 yet? I think it should continue working. If not i'll make an update for it

    I can't seem to enable this or find anything about it on the ACP as well as the front-end. Any tips on getting it working?

    Hey @notmacknelson you can find it in ACP under Community settings -> Group Mention

  19. On 5/6/2020 at 5:36 PM, breatheheavy said:

    Hey @kRSB, wondering if you can help me please.

    I set the permissions so only Admins or my subscriber group can use Group Mentions. 

    The Subscriber group is named Plus.

    They only should be able to tag the Plus group, not ALL groups, however despite the permissions... they can tag all groups. 

    I have a test account that's a standard user, and they did indeed receive the notification. Am I missing something?

    Here is the settings:



    Here is the standard user receiving a notification anyway from the member that used the tag to tag all groups:



    Any help fixing this would be greatly appreciated. 


    Those settings look correct. I tried it myself on my site but i'm not able to reproduce this. Is it possible that this standard user has a secondary group of "Plus"?

    Also if possible could you pm me ACP details so I can take a look?

  20. On 4/27/2020 at 1:10 AM, root88 said:

    @kRSB can you add an option to remove formatting in group mention?


    In this case blue color is barely visible, I prefer it to look like user mention:


    Hey @root88


    You can easily change that with placing this CSS in your custom css:

    1) To change the text color for all groups you can use:

    a[data-mentionid] span {

    color: white !important;


    Where white is the color you want (by looking at your screenshot it's set to white

    2) If you want to change it for only a specific group:

    a[data-mentionid='18'] span {

    color: white !important;


    Where 18 is the group id


    Hope it helps!

    Thanks for the fast response. I've bought the plugin and it's working perfectly, exactly as described.

    Is there any change of a feature request?

    Would it be difficult to add an option to force password change when adding a new user?

    When in Admin CP -> Members -> Create New Member

    Like below:


    Will look into adding it into a future update, but can't promise a date 😛

    Hello, I have just installed it and notifications are working for primary and secondary groups without problems.

    Buuuut when I hover over @kRSB mention then I have whole forum in popup. It happens on default theme and with all other plugins / apps disabled.

    Any ideas?




    On 3/5/2020 at 9:16 PM, Gesundheit said:


    Same issue here. Hovering over the group mention will load the entire first page of the forum within a hovercard. @kRSB

    Thanks for reporting!

    I have identified the problem, I will bring out a fix ASAP

  23. @AlexJ you can now mention groups by simply typing @! Please download the new version 😛




    On 8/22/2018 at 3:54 AM, liquidfractal said:

    Yeah, unfortunately while it's included in the forum/topic post interface, it's missing from the blogs. Here's hoping you can add it soon. ?


    @liquidfractal it should now also work for blogs since it hooks into the user mentions (so everywhere you can do user mentions you can do groups)

    Any estimated ETA? ex - @ staff would help instead of drop down. 

    Should be somewhere within the next 1-2 months most likely , i'm finishing some work for a client and then during my summer holidays i'll look into updating this
