One way to get a member's attention is to tag them in a post. If the member has the notification setting 'when someone tags you' checked they will receive a notification that they were tagged. Tags can also be used as a simple way to identify a specific member you are talking about or to create a link to a member's profile.
Tagging works by placing an @ before the person's username.
Reminder of a simple way of tagging someone by using User Link button
3. If you are on a composition page you can click the Insert User Link icon. Insert User Link Search for the member by any name and click on the micro profile in the results. The tag will be inserted into the message.
[Above quote is taken from the link in the first post. here].
Here's what happens: You'll find the User Link button here - Fig. #1 Above.
Let's take User Nugget, as an example:
Click on User button. Key in "nugget" in lower case letters - i.e. user name. [Arrow (1). See Fig #2 above.] A drop down window will appear with the User's Display name showing. Click on Display name. [Arrow (2) above]
A code like this will appear for your tag @nugget . That's your tag for Nugget. When you save your post, the tag will appear as the user's Display name.
Note: If you are tagging the Owner /Admin of any PB forum, type in "admin" as the user name. So if you want to practice on me, don't type in "whisker". Same goes for PM's.
Hope that helps. any questions!
for your patience!
