Mention a user with @ is quite difficult in a post
I would like to submit problems with our forum users when they want to mention several users in a post
When they use the @, they have to identify the nicknames wanted, without possibility to have suggestions
For example in the Private Messages plugin, when we add users, we get suggestions in a popup when we start to write first letters of nickames
Do you have any solution to provide us ? Is it already implemented and not activated in the code ?
Thanksss in advance

There is no an easy way to add user selector. We may add it in the upcoming 2.0.0 major version, but it's not considered yet.
I hope we can have this feature in 2.0.0, it's really a pain.
Also when a post contains an invalid mention on a non existing nick name, there is no link (correct) but the invalid nick name has no CSS class so we can't style it to make it highly visible to the poster that it's invalid and also possibly a tooltip.
Ideally, I would like to get this markup:
<span class="wpf-invalid-user-name" title="invalid user name">@Unknown</span>
