    Hello Xenforo Community,

    Is there a way to make an addon or does one exist so that you can "Tag" another forum user in the post, so it sends them a PM telling them to read that thread?

    Thanks in advance

    It's not a pm but this does trigger an alert, @Michael Frame. And it's a core feature.

    So this is a really cool feature that is built in, is there anyway you can make it so you can "tag" a usergroup? How hard would this be?

    I have an add-on which does this; User Mentions Improvements by Xon

    It was designed to avoid some issues I feel detract from the [db] tag me add-on. As it does not match the XenForo's behaviour for user mentions occurring before reply alerts.

    That seems nice Xon, but I can't get it so I can tag groups. What's the secret.

    You need to grant the 'Tag User Group' permission and tick the "Is Taggable" on the groups you want to allow to be tag-able.

    Both add-ons have same requirements in that regards.
