How do you type @(insert Forum member's name)? ...So that it shows up red in a Forum post and it notifies the member that they've been mentioned?

I've seen posts with my name @Lewk in bold red and then seen a notification that I've been mentioned.

But how did you do that? Is there a code you use? I can't work it out.

Thanks for any advice you can give me.


Don’t be scared. This island is full of noises, strange sounds and sweet melodies that make you feel good and don’t hurt anyone. Sometimes I hear a thousand twanging instruments hum at my ears, and sometimes voices that send me back to sleep even if I had just woken up—and then I dreamed of clouds opening up and dropping such riches on me that when I woke up, I cried because I wanted to dream again.

Put the @ , and begin typing the username you want to mention. A list will pop up where you can then click on the member name.

What it will do is create this code: [ mention ] name [ /mention ]

So you can also just use that (without spaces).

Thank you!

Okay...it just doesn't do that on my PC. No list pops up for me. Maybe if I type the code it'll work now. I'll see when I post this.

So that is a site issue after all. That feature doesn't work on some devices.

...Nope...it won't let me use those codes. I typed them but it now refuses to let me make the post with them. Not sure why it doesn't work for me.

Doesn't work on my Android phone either. :(

Strange, I don't know why it wouldn't work for you. I only noticed this feature recently however and wonder if it was a new implementation as they update the forum software from time to time; in that case it might need tinkering with. I find it a very convenient feature so I hope it can be enabled for you.

You're not the only one. It literally tells me that I cannot use certain BBCodes, in this case mention.

Hi Lewk,

when you go to your profile and under board preferences (Edit posting defaults) do you have enable BBCode by default enabled?

Also when you reply to someone in full editor down the bottom is a check box with Disable BBCode, does that one have a tick in it?

Hi RedWine and thanks for the tips

However, yes, I do have enable BBCode by default enabled and, no, I don't have the check box with Disable BBCode ticked, down the bottom in full editor mode.

I've been manually typing BB code here for years now with no issues. It just won't let me use this recent [ mention ] code.

The red error message that pops up is "You cannot use certain BBCodes: [ mention ]." (It probably won't even let me copy & paste that, so I've put an extra space in.)

Sounds like an issue for the developers. I think I'll email support about it. May take a while to be fixed, even so.
