@mentions

Faith:
@mentions don't work for me, no auto-complete, nothing. Rather annoying when you really want to point at someone.
I've tried variations of browsers, plugins, safe-starts .. no go. So, I decided to start doing it manually.

For those with a similar problem there is a work-around. @mention is simply a board code similar to those quick inserts above the message box.

Look at a users profile link, it has a number in it, copy the number place it in the tags, like so:

--- Code: ---[member=####]NAME[/member]
--- End code ---
Mine looks like this:

--- Code: ---[member=56463]Faith[/member]
--- End code ---
the result is this:
@Faith

sorry if this is shared elsewhere, I've seen the question come up regularly.

Dear Faith:  The biggest issues for many with "mentions" not working are members that use Tapatalk.  I do not use Tapatalk for that reason.
Regarding browsers, usually Firefox and IE never fails.

Also when attempting to use a mention, start typing the member name directly(no space)  after the asterisk.  Well before you finish typing the member name you should see a Pop-Up with the a variety of member name choices, instead of completing typing the member name click on the correct member name in the Blue Pop-Up.

I hope that this helps and it works for you.
Hugs,
Danielle

nope, doesn't work. 30+ year service tech and network administrator here (aren't we all? it seems like it .. haha). If there was a way to make it work in my browsers I would have found it.  I blame Windows. No two computers can ever have the same thing work under the same conditions.

I'll stick to my text document and copy/paste it in

Dear Faith:
I am so very sorry that none of my suggestions solved your problem with the mentions.   If your "work around" does what is needed you can obviously use it for now, until someone else can provide the necessary correct suggestions.

Who, knows, I may have a dream tonight about how to solve the issue that you are having.   
Again, so very sorry I couldn't come up with right answers for you.
Hugs,
Danielle

Nothing to be sorry about. I'd already tried everything except erasing my computer. I suspect it's a browser javascript issue. After a certain point, it's not worth troubleshooting. I posted a workaround for people that also gave up trying to make it work.
