I belong to a number of non-wpforo forums, and in some of them if I mention a members name with an "@" before the name (@name), the member automatically gets an email announcing s/he has been mentioned in a post with a link to the post.
Does wpforo have this ability? If not, can it be considered for the future?
The light version for user mentioning function is added in wpForo started from the wpForo 1.4.3 version. It detects @nicename, sends email notification and change the @nicename to this user profile link. The email content can be edited in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Emails admin page.
Will it work if the @name is not someone you are replying to or has not participated in the discussion of the topic.
Example: @Name#1 starts a topic and @Name#2 replies, Can @Name#2 also mention @Name#3 (who has not been part of the topic) in his reply because he wants to alert him to this topic?
