Hey guys!!

I've updated the forum software (v.1.4.3)  and there are some really nice changes!

User mentions

The initial release of this feature allows you to mention another user in a post by using @username (whatever it might be).  Their "@username" will be under the username beside their avatar - note that it may be different from their actual username depending on how they registered. 

This feature is a great addition that should allow you to create a single reply to multiple users simply by tagging them. Note that you have to enter the full @username as it doesn't auto-complete right now. 

NOTE: Users who are tagged will be emailed by default. If I find that this feature is being abused/overused, I will disable email notifications for tagged users so they aren't bombarded. Please be mindful when tagging someone.

Recent posts

You can now find a recent posts button in the forum menu. Posts that are unread will be in bold. If you use the same device, then it will remember which forums you've visited/read and will highlight these accordingly on the recent posts page. Note: this relies on browser "cookies" to tell the forum software where you have been on the forums. If you use multiple devices, this feature will not work as well. 

Future updates will hopefully make this feature better across devices.

You can now insert emojis directly from the post edit screen  :-) 

As always, let me know if there are any bugs and I will report them to the developer. 

The appropriate place to report bugs is HERE.

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Don't worry, Marcie. You can use it exactly as you did before as none of the core features have changed. These new features will make things a lot easier for people moving forward and you can learn how to use them after I've added them to the walkthrough  :-)

That shows who you can send a message to - it will exclude your own account because you can't send private messages to yourself   ;-)

It's there, you just won't see it if you're logged into your own account (see the photo).

If you can see the mail icon for everyone else, then it's working fine.
