    Testing new feature: User Tagging

    Sometimes in busy threads with many participants it can get a bit confusing: when someone posts without quoting a specific post, who is the comment directed to?

    This feature makes it easy to

    1. indicate in your post who you are addressing; and
    2. notify the person tagged that a reply to him or her has been added.

    For example, you might post

    @djbaxter, I think this is a really dumb idea
    or

    @Linda Buquet, who the heck IS this @djbaxter person?
    I've been using this on a couple of other forums for a while now and I find it useful.

    Tell us what you think about it here in this thread and/or in the poll above.

    Great idea! Will it work with the TapaTalk App?

    To be honest, I don't remember. Tapatalk is just a backup for me.

    I just checked this thread with Tapatalk and it seems to work when reading.

    Re: Testing new feature: User Tagging

    Apparently so, although you can only see the linked user if it was posted outside of Tapatalk. So... the answer is sort of.

    Re: Testing new feature: User Tagging

    Oh awesome David! Didn't know there was an add-on for that.

    We use the feature heavily at the Google forum. Here I often say, let's wait and see if Colan or Joy (or whoever) thinks, so it will really help to alert a specific person to a post!

    Oh and regarding that "who the heck IS this @djbaxter person?" question...
    I don't know and I've been wondering that for years!
    He sure does have a great sense of humor though!

    Re: Testing new feature: User Tagging

    I have temporarily disabled this feature while we investigate whether it is now triggering popups for Push Notifications in browsers.

    I don't believe it is doing that but we are testing now.

    Re: Testing new feature: User Tagging

    Unfortunately, we have had to remove that feature.

    It apparently causes annoying popups asking for members to allow push notifications.

    I have brought this to the attention of the coders. If they can provide a work-around we can try installing it again.

    Re: Testing new feature: User Tagging

    I discovered a setting I hadn't noticed before which I think was responsible for the Push Notification popups.

    I have re-enabled the feature now with that setting turned off.

    If you get Push Notification popup alerts on this site, please let me know here or via PM, but I think I have disabled that part of the addon.
