Elephun, when you typed that in, did you then select the username that popped up? I think you need to click that. If it works then your post should link to my profile :)

@Francesca: the auto-complete pop-up is not working yet.

It works for me. Can you send your system specs?

It looks like this:

It might be based on your system specs.

@Francesca - I typed your name in. I didn't see any usernames pop up. I'm on a Mac using Chrome, if that matters. This will be an interesting, good feature  0_0

To confirm, you MUST be able to see the pop-up with the name suggestion for the mention mod to work. If you don't see this, the member will not be pinged. You can identify whether it has worked when you publish your post. If the username is not in bold and doesn't link to the member profile, they won't have been pinged.

Next up is to figure out why you guys are not seeing that pop-up.

When you type slowly, just @fran for example, does nothing show at all?

@Francesca: I am on Mac 10.6.8 using firefox 48.0.2 and cannot upgrade from either.

It's possible that this is the issue as that Firefox is out of date by some years, but it might be something else so I will continue to try.

Ah this is so annoying that some people see it and some don't!

The important point is to not put a space. Just type @ then a few letters slowly and you should see a box show up to predict the username.

I will continue investigating.

Very weird, it seems like only admins are able to do it. So far Im and Acorn have successfully done it but no one else.

@Acorn is earning her keep already and has discovered some settings that I hadn't configured correctly. Can you lovely people give it a go?
