  • Forum Tips ~ Mention Feature


    When you type the @ symbol in front of a members name while composing a message in MegaThemer's editor,
    Vbulletin creates an active notice for that member and sends a new notification to their User Profile page.
    Or vice Versa, when someone Mentions you, a new notification will appear inside your Activity page.

    ( Click to enlarge)

    Sometimes a members name does not appear as a mention, or become active.
    First double check your spelling.
    It may be because vBulletin does not recognize the characters. For example member ☣696☣.
    You can still manually create a mention notice for these special scenarios by following the instructions below

    1 ) ... Navigate to that members profile page and look at the .url address in the address bar in your browser.
    You will see a member's 'ID Number' right before their name at the end of the address.
    Notice the ID number of 1311 in the following string;☣696☣


    2 ) ... Copy that members 'ID Number' and paste/type it in the following string after the word -> USER=".
    Like so; {USER="1311"}MEMBER NAME HERE{/USER}
    *NOTE* My brackets in the above string are not the correct brackets you will need to use.
    Instead of the curly { } brcakets, you will actaully need to use the square [ ] brackets in your posting.
    I am using these for demonstration because you would not be able to read my example with bbcode, after I posted.

    3 ) ... Now add their name in the same string where the user name is suppose to appear.
    Like so; {USER="1311"}☣696☣{/USER}
    The name you insert in between the brackets [ ] can be their actual name or any name you wish.
    For example; {USER="1311"}Late For Supper{/USER}

    4 ) ... Just paste this string into the editor and save/post.

    Alt Codes can also be used for special characters but don't be surprised if vBulletin does NOT recognize them, and not allow them in your posting.
