Yes I do, lurk.  Figured you were somebody from here. :P

Have UP installed on all of them...

I was just wondering if the Ultimate profile mod is the problem.  I'm assuming the mentions mod works with it?  Click your profile from the main menu, then put you mouse cursor over the "Profile info" tab.  You'll see mentions at the bottom of that dropdown.  Click it, any mentions in there?

Edit:  I can see you just mentioned me.  But there's no notification on the profile tab

I do see Mentions there, lurk.  But not on the main menu "Profile" option.  And if I click on that option I can see the list of Mentions.

Just no indication without going to the Profile, Profile Info, then clicking on Mentions...

Just a hunch, I think it's something to do with the Ultimate Profile mod.  Hopefully Dragooon can confirm this.

Bet you're right, lurk.  Figured it had to be something like that.  Or the modified menu system.


May just not be able to use it with the other mods.  I figured this would be a lot easier than members using the shoutbox to tell another member to check out a post, but it might just not work out...

Modified menu system could well be the cause too.  Are you using a menu mod? or did you edit it yourself?

I had been editing it myself, but a while back I installed "Menu Editor Lite".  That's probably the issue...

Same here... only on Profil info tab, and Im using menu editor lite. But thats life, cant have everything. I guess you can add a menu tab using the editor.

Yeah, Menu Editor Lite ditches the entire menu and replaces it with its own, breaking anything that would otherwise add to the menu.

Yup.  Can't do it this week, but as igirisjin mentioned I'll try adding an option and see if I can get it to work, including the numbers.  Outside Menu Editor Lite somewhere...

I also remember it takes out the PM notifications as well.  I think we've found the culprit. ;)

Yup, that was it.  Thanks for the help, lurkalot and Arantor.

I wasn't going to mess with it till the weekend, but I just went ahead and added the option.  Took all of 2 minutes.  I put it up in the header beside the user's avatar under the time line.  Works great, with numbers.  I'll just have to tell users where to look when they come in.

Thanks again for all the help, I should have realized it was the menu thing.  Too long without sleep - that's what I'm using for an excuse and sticking to it... ;)

Great mod, Dragooon.  Few bumps getting it up and running, but all because of other mods.  Enjoy the nap... ;)

Forgot to mention that I also added it to the TinyPortal "User Information" block.  Works great there as well...

Like this mod, but can't get it working:

Install went fine, I set the permissions, but I can't Enable mentions e-mail for current members: I check the button and I save, but the button remains unchecked.
The "mentions" field appears in the profile submenu, but  when I enter @<username> in a post, no suggestion appear.
Using smf 2.0.7

Any idea/fix, did I missed something?

Thank you

It'll remain unchecked, it's a one time thing to enable for current members.

If you submit, does it mention properly?

same here
It appears to be uncheck but if you check your members profile, they are checked.
Only in the admin panel is unchecked.
But it works fine.
On the suggestion issue try chrome because in firefox it doesnt work for me.

Just tested:
yes mention appear in profile info, but nothing indicates that there is a new mention (like PM does, with a number between bracket in the menu), and no mail is sent to the user.
So a mentioned member knows about he is mentioned, only if checking "mention" in his profile menu. Is that normal?

There should be a number besides Profile for number of mentions
