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.

Features:
  • Mentionalable 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 mentions supports the following:
    • User profile posts/comments.
    • Posts/Threads.
    • Reports
  • Opt-in, send an email to the user who is mentioned/quoted:
    • global option to enable/disable.
    • permission to receive mentioned emails.
    • configurable default for users on account creation.
  • Editor integration. Copying & pasting a user group tag link is transformed into @usergroup
  • User mentions can be disabled per forum per user group
See my add-on Username Restrictions to prevent users signing up using a usergroup name.

New Permissions
  • Enable User Mentions
  • Receive Mention Alert Emails
  • Receive Quoted Alert Emails
  • Mention User Group
  • View Private Groups

Great addon for anyone running a website with staff that you need to mention in important threads. It took me a little bit to figure out that I needed to click on "is mentionable" in the usergroup - but that was about all the difficulties I had setting it up.
Most useful addon for our forum. When we upgraded to XF2 I didn't realise how much our staff relied on this addon. It's seamless and the developer Xon is VERY helpful. I made the payment to get this addon ported and Xon worked closely with any issues I had and fixed them all nearly instantly. Very great to work with, also very much appreciate his work! Thanks a billion Xon. You Rock!
