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.
This is how it was designed to work, changing to Suggestion.
Mmh... ok. Still, it seems a bit weird. I know I'm not the only one to have noticed.
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.
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.
Actually, @Former Member, 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?
@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?
You're right, @Brian Lenz, I checked and it's exactly that. Just links.
We definitely need mentioning in posts. Anybody expects this to work.
I had the same problem and I hope it get fix.
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.
