Cool. Is it excluded from quote blocks? That could get annoying.

Yeah but a quote of a mention will have the @ symbol so will trigger another mention




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Adding matching whitespace on either side takes care of the email matching, but will mean that if people miss a space it won't match

\s\@(\w+\b)\s

OR 

\s\@(\w+\b)

Depending on if you want to match whitespace on both sides or just infront.

If ASP VBscript doesn't support \s for whitespace, you can escape a normal space too with "backslash space"




Ask me about Web Servers, Wordpress and the internet in general.

Thanks Daniel, I wouldn't imagine people missing aspace would betoo much of a problem.

Cheers, Matt.

I tested in dev and it matched a word after the @ and stopped a the first non-character - period, space, etc. So will just leave it there...

Thanks again!

Another few of things:

 

  • Notifications aren't sent out if edit a post - adding a @ AFTER you posted won't trigger the emails. In this case is better to add a second reply for example
  • Early on we accepted usernames with non alpha/number characters, so there's a nic.wise for example (Hi Nic!). To make sure we filter bad stuff the function will obviously look for alpha/numbers that form a valid user name, using the same validation function as the registration page. So nic.wise will never get a notification...
  • More than one mention of a username in a single post triggers one email notification only

@freitasm do you think this feature could get annoying? ;) Any way to disable notifications? I don't want to, just curious.
