We're not testing the "mentions" @cipher , we're testing your patience.

I've just been trying to use the @mentions but when i type the @ and being typing there is no dropdown box. Could anyone shed some light on what i'm doing wrong.

Are you on a computer or phone?

 

@FooFader - works for me. If on a comp, no space between the @ and the first letter of the username. Also, you need to select the name from the dropdown menu, it doesn't seem to work if you just type it out.

 

If on a phone, you can't just type the @, you need to click the @ button in the editor at the top of the text box.

i'm on my laptop using google chrome. The dropdown box doesn't appear after typing @ and the first letter. And definitely not putting a space in or anything.

Keep typing ... It might just be waiting for the results to filter a bit more.

ok i've just solved my problem! :-D

 

The thing that was the problem was the website not liking my UK keyboard. For those that are unaware the " and @ symbols are switched. So i have to use the " symbol to tag but the weird thing is it only works on a new line. So like now, if i press shift+2 i get " but on a new line shift+2 gives me @ and i can then tag. I dont know if normally you can only tag on new lines?

 

@iacas is this a bug you were aware of? and is there any way to fix it on my end? Thanks

I suppose that's the only point that confuses me right now. You can only type an @ symbol on a new line? How do you type an email address and get the @ symbol in the middle like barney@purplesweaters.org?

 

The @ symbol should trigger the popup (and sometimes I need more than a single letter too).

Seems that would be of more immediate value to posters who are currently viewing the site.

IMHO, this would be a much better option. The little pop up that I get for the PM would be perfect for @mentions.

no i can type the @ symbol whenever i like which is shift+' for me on a UK layout but the @ doesn't trigger the mention, i have to type, for example, "iacas but if this is on a new line then the " changes into an @ automatically and then i can mention.

So, unless you can record a video of it, or something, I don't think we have any way of reproducing this. Try a different browser. Something seems awkward. Other UK users don't have this issue.

@FooFader 's issues did remind me of a random bug I see occasionally.  Every once in awhile when I try to add an @ mention, it will simultaneously write the @ and the name at the point my cursor is located AND at the very beginning of that same line.  It would look something like:

 

@iacas So, what's going on @iacas
