    Help with some posting tips please

    I can usually find my way around a computer but I'm struggling to achieve some basic things here.
    right now it is how to "mention" another user in a post so that it comes up with the @ symbol then their user name straight after it. e.g. @JustKiddin but it would be in blue as a hyperlink you could click on to go to that users profile

    I think I stumbled across it a couple of weeks ago digging into the HTML language behind the scenes and copying/pasting what someone else had done... but stuffed if I can figure it out again.

    Educate me if you can, or point me in the direction of where to find "mentions" in the FAQ. Obviously I did too much of something when I was younger and can't see it for looking.

    BTW, does anyone know if you do "mention" a user like that, do they get a prompt in their notifications or some prompt that they have been "mentioned"?

    Thanks in advance.

    correct...stick the @directly before thier name and yes it pops up blue...yes they get a mention...eg @JustKiddin is a good bugga you will see your mentions and likes up on the top bar in notifications.... hope that helps.

    Well whaddya know... I thought I had tried that and it didn't work. Must be that eyesight problem again. Thanks @mickyDuck... let's see if that works.

    Hope the M8's are treating you well.
    All good in the new police state up here, provided I carry my pass with me and don't make eye contact...

    That came through fine @neverreadyfreddy

    It just seems to be a problem with Micky Ducks... I'll hear back from him on PM at some stage and get another step closer to becoming a wise sage

    You gotta type the name correctly with the capitals where they need to be and the spaces are normally just spaces, no underscores. Good luck ��
