How is this ext working for you all?

by lavalamp213 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 3:43 pm

Hi- I would LOVE to have this extension on my board.

But reading the comments here it looks like it conflicts with other exts and there are some other alarming sort of problems. But it looks like if the settings are correct etc, it should work.

I am not super technical so I try to avoid creating trouble on my board, but I would SO love to have this.

Can anybody tell me how well this is working in general?

Thank you so much!

I may have phrased this question too broadly.

What I am hoping to hear is some positive feedback about this extension. All of the threads here seem to be indicating trouble and most of it not resolved. Am I mistaken? Because I doubt it is really that bad.

Thanks to anyone who can help me make a more informed decision.

That's the most practical and sensible advice.

I don't have a test board though and haven't worked out how to set one up. I know that's lame.

I'm running a board with about 20 ext's in play. All is well so far. It's probably time I figured the test board thing out.

I've got it installed and haven't had any issues with it. I type an @ and start writing someone's name, a dropdown appears. I click the name there, it turns into [mention]username[/mention] and the person mentioned gets a notification that they've been mentioned in a post.

If you PM a post to someone, it'll come up as [mention] not being allowed, but that's easy to get around, just delete the [mention] entirely or change it so it just says @username in plain text and remove the BBCode around it.

Very straightforward. There aren't a lot of mods installed on that forum, though, which might help. Had to add a "sv" language folder as the board is in English and Swedish, but I simply copied the "en" folder and renamed it. Couldn't be bothered to translate anything at the time. If I do, I'll share it!
