    Improvements to XenForo's user mentions system. This addon was a private addon 2 weeks before public release.

    This addon is not designed to deal with large group memberships. This feature may be added in the future.

    • Taggable user groups.
      • Customizable icon per group (small + large).
      • Membership can be viewed on the front-end.
      • User group may be private, at which point only members can tag or view that group.
      • Permission to tag taggable groups.
      • Admin privilege to view all taggable groups.
    • User group tagging supports the following:
      • User profile posts/comments.
      • Posts/Threads.
      • Reports (if Report Improvements are installed).
      • Other types supporting XenForo's user tagging will automatically support tagging user groups, but the front-end UI for auto-completing user groups will not work.
    • Opt-in, send an email to the user who is tagged/mentioned:
      • global option to enable/disable.
      • permission to receive tagged emails.
      • configurable default for users on account creation.
    • Editor integration. Copying & pasting a user group tag link is transformed into @usergroup
    • User tagging can be disabled per forum per user group
    See my addon Username Restrictions to prevent users signing up using a usergroup name.

    New Permissions
    • Disable User Mentions
    • Receive Tag Alert Emails
    • Tag User Group
    • View Private Groups

    This addon works perfectly on my Forum. Just updated with a fix to allow mentions also using Tapatalk.

    Awesome add-on. Works great and helps users to tag the Staff or Admins for example, if they don't know anyone of that groups personally. Recommended!

    This release is a great addition to xenforo, something which I personally think should be in the core. You can tell Xon cares about the quality of his addons and what he releases.
