@Chalk Isn't there a way of getting a notification if you're mentioned rather than having to look yourself?

Don't mean to sound like I'm complaining, I'm not I promise you.

He says in the first post that you can get an email notification, the option is probably found somewhere in your profile settings

You can choose to get email notifications. In the mentions page there is a little checkbox on the bottom right.

Can't either of you read minds? I meant a notification when you log into the forum itself. Kind of like when you get a PM.

At the moment is does display a number next to the Profile page link which indicates how many mentions you have. Its not ideal but it is helpful if you tend to scan across the top there like I do.

I might spend the weekend looking at the possibility to get the PM notification code and see how it works. Possibly copy and paste it and change it from PMs to mentions. Not sure how successful it will be, and its not something I'm going to play with at the moment as I don't have a lot of time until Friday/weekend. I would be worried that I'm almost certain to break something everything. But I will definitely have a look and see what can be done.

Okay so I actually found someone who had done this before. By using the code they have posted I have managed to make it send you a PM when you are mentioned. I have adjusted the "email" notifications on the Mentions page (that checkbox). It will now send you a PM instead, thus triggering the popup and emails for those who have it enabled.

Also confirmed that you cannot send yourself a mention. It just doesn't work. And mentioning someone in a forum which they don't have access to will also void the mention and they won't see it.

Enjoy!

It wasn't too much trouble thankfully. It wasn't until you pointed it out that I realised that I don't look at the little profile mentions page notifier as often as I thought.

Thanks for adding this Kryten. I've used this before on MyBB and it's much needed addition. Now, all we need is an alerts feature.

You need to pay for name changes and dic pics are the currency. Send Llama a picture of yourself (no balls, he isn't gay you know), and he'll be happy to accommodate you.

Are we "pay as you go" now......  has the forum budget been cut ?

I went ahead and changed your name. A charge of $99 will be added to your next billing cycle. Would you like to bundle in a gender change for only $20 more a month?

Great, hopefully he'll no longer PM female members of the forum to call them a bitch then.
