    Here is a little How To on how to tag members in posts:

    There are 2 ways you can do this the first way is you can just put an @ symbol infront of the users name for example [MENTION=531]Djtonton[/MENTION] will take myself in this post.

    The second way to do this is to use an icon listed above its a blue speaker is what it looks like (see red circle in picture below). What i tend to do is write the users name out like djtonton than highlight the djtonton and click the blue speaker this puts these MENTION tags around the users name. Once you do that your all set!!

    lets say you have a post and you are selling something or whatever it is and you want to call someone out i guess you could say if you [MENTION=1474]davesfish[/MENTION] aka tag them an alert should pop up in their notifications letting that user know someone has mentioned their name


    Hopefully it will help get more members back on the site and allow more interaction.

    it also adds a new tab when you click on a users name for mentions and likes/thanks so you can see where you were mentioned at. Really its to drive more interaction between site members!
