XF 1.3 Click Username to Reply

    Hmm... Can't seem to find an option to configure possibility to add username to reply field by clicking it. It was available for my users in the previous software, they loved this feature, it was very convenient.

    Frankly speaking, this @ system with punching in usernames is extremely uncomfortable when XF is used in different languages. Because we always have to switch to English, then choose uppercase, then write in username (that could also require switching between languages). Some nicknames are long or gibberish, contain numbers, etc. All that is way too complicated to compare with just one click. Click username to reply would be a splendid addition to usability.

    I am looking forward to find this option in XF, if available. Or, if anyone knows a good working add-on that does this trick, I would really appreciate a link.

    I'm not sure if one does exist, however I like the idea...

    However, I would make it so there's a mention button next to the reply button instead... I don't like changing main UI functionality ;)

    Ok, check my add ons - it's called 'Mention Link'. Should do what you want :)

    Wrong Liam.

    (Don't feel bad, though. I made the same mistake once.)
