    I confess that I don't use them... although I do log into facebook daily to play a bit. Some games are really addictive!

    I'm not sure this is working how it is supposed to be. I try this every now and then but just get an '@' only where @name should be.

    @bo5ton ; try adding a semicolon after the username. I think that's a change since this was first implemented.

    You actually had to type a number? That's not much use. So if you type "@", directly followed by my username, directly followed by a semicolon, it doesn't work for you?

    EDIT: As @ScallioXTX ; said. ^

    The other way is to use [MENTION]username[/MENTION], which has the same effect but without that horrible trailing semi-colon and without any question over whether it's going to work properly or not!

    Ah yes, hand coding is always better. Thanks, Stevie.

    I've fixed those tags in your post for you now.

    That can be a pain when the user has a name made up of different characters and symbols, it is not easy to copy and paste the user name either!

    Yeah, that would make it much easier to use. It'd be a low priority, but I'll definitely keep it in mind for when we have some dev time. It's not our plugin so we'd likely need to write our own one, but that's a good option anyway. Thanks for your feedback.
