I have noticed that on a lot of posts people have typed @Stosh and I am assuming they want it to send a notification to that person that they were "tagged" in a post. Well, that doesn't work just putting an @ in front of the name. If one really wants it to work, the need to either use the pull-down menu option or type it in HTML code (member='Stosh') but use brackets [ ] instead of parentheses, Otherwise on the menu bar just to the left of the Font box is a blue square icon. Click on that and the pull-down menu will give you a number of choices to create links. Go to member and select that. It will ask for a name, type it in and voila, you have a link.
If one does it correctly, go into "Edit" and it will display in HTML code correctly. The name should show in blue (a link) when it is saved to the forum. A message will automatically go out notifying that person they were named in a comment on the forum. They can click on that message and it will take them directly to that post they were referred to in. That post will appear between the message icon and your name at the top of the screen. It changes color when a notification comes in.
I sent it to myself and I did not get a notification. Maybe there's something more wrong than just linking it when it comes to notifications.
qwazse Did it work for your notifications?
