Mentioning does not work in posts.

Changed To Suggestion

This action was taken by MOLLY O.

Agreed. We need to be able to tag other Narrative users in the bodies of posts, not just in comments. An autosuggest feature when typing "@" on both post bodies and comments would be great.

While you can use @user in comments and it turns into a link once published, the same seems not to happen in posts. It seems thus impossible to mention someone in the posts.

Since this was changed to a suggestion, could you change the title to accurately reflect that? Thanks

Ya, I agree when I want to tag someone I have to go to their page and insert the link into their name.  And it still doesn't call them out but at least then I can direct people to their page if I am featuring them 


I hope they change that. 

@Vico Biscotti, Narrative still doesn't support native mentioning in posts. You can always put @Name in a post and hyperlink it to their profile to do a "manual" mention, but that will not result in them being notified. I'm betting that's what you've seen?

Actually, @Sol Cycler, I still believe this is an issue, not a suggestion. @MOLLY O changed to suggestion.

I noticed today that one post HAD mentioning working. Maybe they've just fixed this?

It is, but since it's not a feature yet, you are suggesting it become one.

Tags do not work in posts. Most of us out of courtesy embed their profile URL to make going to their profile easy, then tag them in a comment below.

Community: We want to be able to tag other users in our posts, not just in the comments.

Narrative: This is working as intended.

Community: Okay, but we REALLY want you to change it so we can tag other users in our posts.

Narrative: We don't support that.
