Hello,

Is it possible to have the post templates work with the Mentions mod? Testing it out and creating some templates and notice using the @ Username doesn't link to the username.

Thank you!

Hi there,

That would be done on submission of the post, it's not something that would be done during template creation, as it would not be possible to do so. You can only alert a user to a post once it's actually been submitted - a post template isn't a "real" post, if that makes sense :)

Hello,

Understood, but when the template get's posted the mention still doesn't work. So in the template is:

Contact @ username if any questions

When that post is posted using that template the mention doesn't work. It doesn't create the link to the profile.

Thanks!

I've not had a chance to look at this yet today, sorry :(

It's on my ToDo list for this week though.

Update: I am unable to replicate this issue, could you please PM me with an FTP and AdminCP account so I can look into this @ your site?

Hello,

I figured out the reason. I was using the account that I was mentioning. It was being used as a global template saying to contact @ name for info. So admins could use the same template. Only it doesn't work when you mention yourself. IS this by design?

Thank you again!
