I've added a mentions modification that will allow you to use the "@" symbol before a name.  This will send an email to the member and will notify them that you have mentioned them.

There is a menu under "profile" that will show all of your past mentions.

It is supposed to be able to auto fill the name for you as you are typing it in, but unfortunately it is not working right at the moment.  I will be working on that part of the mod soon.

For the time being, you need to spell the username properly

The problem has been solved and it is now auto filling!!

Superb innovation @PickelledEggs

The Turkish Atheist forum http://www.ateistforum.org/ has a variant of this property.

When some user quotes you, the notification alerts in colour red which gets attention very much. The color red says ''i'm here.'' : )



I was thinking that you don't need to code. Forum's design facilitate these kind of changes.

See now that's something I'd like to do.

On one hand I don't want to change up the board software... on the other, SMF is really starting to fall behind the times!

@wolf39us

nope. not autofilling as of now. I did notice that you don't need to worry about capital letters or anything though.

You are right @PickelledEggs

I would also thank him before i had posted, it was in my mind, but it was late. I could edit but my laziness...

Thanks @wolf39us.

You are, too, doing a lot to maintain this forum in service all round the world as a atheist sharing platform.

Hmmm. didn't show up that time, but maybe because I unchecked "email notifications for mentions"?
