    user x mentions me.

    user b quotes the post of user x

    the alert shows

    user x mentioned me
    user b mentioned me

    through user b only has quoted user x.

    How do i fix this? I dont want quotes to trigger the mention for the user quoting. It gives false alert.

    I've never seen this happen and there's no reason for it to happen with the design of the code. Can you show the posts where you got alerted twice? (Were they edited at all?)

    The person who quoted you may have edited the quote to remove the USER tag and converted it back to a tag, I believe this would have alerted you.

    Either that or an add-on changing the behavior? I can't reproduce this myself.

    Could be an addon but nobody is editing anything. It is across all topics.

    When you click Reply on a post, what is inserted into the editor?

    Just the quote and what you reply.

    Quote has mentions..

    When you say mentions, are the just the at sign and name or do they include the USER tag?

    I do have quote me addon which means it is possible quote are being added as @ without the user tags.

    Disable the add-on and test again. It's likely that is the case.

    I disabled all plugins but the test is same. Mentions in quotes are still being alerted. Below results in alert for all users mentioned in quote with "user mentioned in this post"

    Code:

    There is no reason that should be alerting the user. If you send me a test account (or two) + ACP, FTP, Amanda Database access I can trouble shoot.
