@mention username

Post by kizrak »

Hello Engineers!

Is there a proper way to @mention username someone that generates the orange/pink'ish purple/green highlighting?

A quick search revealed phpbb.com, but that makes me think that if these forums aren't using that/similar extension, then there isn't a simple way to tag/auto-link other users? Personally, I think the notification bit is a tad much.

(I also saw bbcode, but I couldn't find anything about mentioning users there.)

I'm interested in easy text color (FF9F1B E93FE9 00AA00) highlighting when I'm talking about other users on the forums, similar to how quoting a post automatically creates a link to the quoted username works. I'm hoping for something simple like @Kizrak, or [mention]Kizrak[/mention], or [Kizrak], or Kizrak.

Thanks,
-Kizrak

None that I know of.

Indeed, we don't have such feature on this forum.
