I have tried:

None of them work. I want to know which user posted in the Forum when I receive the notification. Thanks!

Hi TIMS Forum,

Please see the list of shortcodes:

  • [member_name] – User Display Name
  • [entry_title] – Forum or topic title (Subscription Confirmation)
  • [topic_title] – Topic title (New Topic notification)
  • [topic_desc] – Small part of topic’s first post text (New Topic notification)
  • [reply_title] – Reply title (New Reply notification)
  • [reply_desc] – Small part of reply’s text (New Reply notification)
  • [confirm_link] – Subscription confirmation link
  • [unsubscribe_link] – Unsubscribe link
  • [reporter] – Post reporter user Display Name
  • [message] – Report message
  • [post_url] – Reported post URL

As you can see there is no any shortcode with user_ prefix. There is only [member_name]  close to your case.

Yes, I do see there are no user shortcodes. I wish there was. 

Member_Name does not work because it is my own name in the notification:

Hello timsforum2407@gmail.com! <-----That is [member_name]

I don't really care about having my own name in the notification. I want to know who posted in my forum.
