Person Tagging

Hello again everybody!

We've got another awesome update for you. Person-tagging has been one of the most requested forum features... And now it's here!

It's pretty simple to initiate. Just type an @ symbol and start typing the name of who you'd like to mention. A dropdown should show up below the textarea with a list of names. Keep typing and the list will continue to update. You can use the arrow keys to move up or down the list and enter or tab to choose the person.

Once you've submitted your post or comment, the person you mentioned will receive an in-app notification and an email letting them know that you mentioned them in the forum.

This will be a great way to quickly grab the attention of teachers and other Treehouse students when you need a helping hand with something. Do use it responsibly though. Remember, you're filling up someone's inbox. :wink:

Susan Siow be sure to select the user in the dropdown - the tagging won't work if you just type someone's name out after an @ symbol (like @Susan Siow). I fixed your comment for you though :)

Susan Siow can you send a screenshot and some info about your browser and operating system to help@teamtreehouse.com? They'll help you figure out what's up... might be a bug that we need to address.

= Ich mag das @baumhaus hier.

Ben Jakuben Andrew Chalkley Ben just turned 21?

Tommy Morgan Sean Gaffney I just noticed that the favicon.ico now has a number over the face of Mike (number of my unread alerts). That is pretty cool, how is that accomplished?

Jesus Alcaras sehr gut!

Craig London haha, so much for sneaking that in ;) We used a script called Tinycon, available here.

I didn't work on this at all but YAYYY to Sean Gaffney! Now take me to your finest BBQ joint.

Daniel Lewis I ate at Sean Gaffney's finest BBQ joint and leftovers from Russell St. on the same day. Russell St. is competitive, I have to say.

That was totally off topic, but yeah, it had to be said.

Alan Johnson: Interesting! Maybe SC BBQ is just terrible like everyone says it is. That's right, I said it. Sean Gaffney thinks thinks beef and turkey and sometimes chicken aren't BBQ. You should tell everyone you're from Texas and leave it at that :D

This is awesome, thanks Sean Gaffney I'm thinking now that you are probably regreting the new feature since you seem to be getting quite a few notifications :P

Wahooo! Great job Sean Gaffney & Tyson Rosage!

Hope this will be helpful for students to tag the appropriate teachers & peers for questions! :)

Tyson Rosage & Sean Gaffney Great work gents!

Suleiman Leadbitter, haha yeah, I kind of figured that would be the case. I took one for the team here. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
