I am working on it. I have not very much time at the moment and I am in some kind of creativity crisis :P
But I am progressing.

I've read the area51 discussion and most of the things mentioned there are things I have already stated as potential problems in my extension.
I think I will at first do a first version of the extension without many special cases. I'll add ACP configs for example later.
I also want to give different possibilities for users who want it. The [mention] bbcode for example.

I am currently thinking about a way to deal with names with spaces or @ character. Spaces would be fixed by either use @"Name with spaces" or @[Name with spaces].

And then there is the problem what to do with mentions on post edit :P But I'll deal with that later. At first there will be only mentions on new posts.

This is an amazing idea! A few members have requested something similar on my forum, as we are currently using the "quote" feature to do this. This would be perfect! Cannot wait.

Just to keep you updated: I've completed the frontend tonight. That means the js autocomplete feature with all usernames and possible problems etc.
To satisfy all and for special cases like declension (thx to the area51 discussion :P) I have included three possibilities to mention people.
  • @Wolfsblvt: Hey you, what have you said?
  • I want to mention [mention]Wolfsblvt[/mention] here, cause I can't find the @ on my keyboard :-/
  • [mention="Wolfsblvt"]Wolfsblvts[/mention] extensions are the best I've seen so far!
Hope you get why all three exist.

Now I will start adding the backend (so notifying the people, that's the whole sense of this extension. So I need that before releasing a DEV version).

Oh, and for lazy people, there is an auto complete for the bbcode :P
And with that, I got a new idea for an extension. Waaah, I have too much ideas. Can someone pay my bills? Then I'll make a fulltime job out of it here.

Great work Clemens!

Are you going to add the mentions to the notifications?

What do you mean?
If I understand you right, yes, users will be notificated on mentions, the same way they are if you quote them. That's the next thing I'll do.

Accidental typing mistake while not thinking, honestly! I'm normally a bit of a grammar geek. :oops:

Still better than my english :P

Sorry guys, I am too perfectionistic, it takes time. I need to make the autosuggest feature order alphabetically. That's really important!
So it will take some more time.

Why not sort by match (the best match first, the least last). Or show the user who have participated in the topic first, then the other. But the second suggestion might not be the most intuitive to the end user.

What is the best match? :P
And second suggestion is the one I will implement (:

Sort order as I am currently programming it
  1. User posted in topic already first
  2. User with match at the beginning first
  3. User with math somwhere in the name
  4. Alphabetically
So yes, all of this is in there.
