@Mentions

Post by swt4ajp » Sat Nov 22, 2014 12:04 pm

Hey everyone,

I am looking for some sort of @Mentions extension where is a member types @swt4ajp it will send a notification either by email or via the new notifications drop down box.

the prime reason for this extention is to alert other members when they are being mentioned in a post.
I would like it to have some permissions
I.E, Group 1 cannot @Mention another user
Group 2 can @Mention another user
Admins and Mods should be able to @Mention anyone.

This could also be based on board level permissions. so if a member of Group 2 @mentions someone from Group 1 when in a private board and the user in Group 1 doesnt have access they do not receive the mention alert.

Thanks

As I got it it will be implemented in 3.2, see this thread: http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic ... 08&t=42807

It would be difficult to do this in an easy way. That was the reason it wasn't implemented in 3.1.
If you can't wait, I am quite sure there will be such an extension in the future.

I am no phpBB core developer, so I can't say.
But there is an RFC and they are discussion :D

When I saw it pop up too may times while not knowing what it meant, google taught me it means 'Request for Comments', e.g. it'll just mean a topic where a certain feature is discussed. More precisely; just the thread that was referred to.

I am quite sure "Request for Change" is meant, the developing word :P

To clear it up a bit: If some part of the software is not working, it is a bug. But if everything is working, but you want something changed, like advanced functionality, another look, etc, or want to add a feature, you do a "Request for Change".
This one most likely will just be implemented in major versions (So like phpBB 3.1, and not included in 3.0.12 for example), cause it is no bug, but a new or changed feature.
If you have a specific extension request and you are willing to pay for, you can write me a PM.

Or sometimes you have to know what you are looking for before you are looking for it :P

Actually, Google was right this time, RFC == Request For Comment and FYI == For Your Information.

It's a pitty the C in RFC is now presented as being the abbr. for Change instead of Comments :ugeek:

More ontopic, like the idea of @mentions, sure hope it makes his way in 3.1.2 and not in 3.2.x :)
