OK, what is the magic word to notify a poster in the orange text with the @Joe Blow in an orange background?

I have tried exactly what the html script says, eg.  >@JoeBlow and every other combination and nothing works.

And why is it impossible to find this out? Where is the help page?  I searched for an hour before asking here!

You can just start typing @Jaylinb... for example and you should get  a dropdown if the forum recognizes it, but to be honest it's a bit finicky @Jaylinbridges.

It's a lot easier to quote something someone else said either with the "+" button near the lower left of their last post in the thread or by highlighting a part of their post and clicking the dropdown.

Thanks!  I never got the dropdown because I was typing too fast. I guess the 1982 IBM MSDOS PC they are using takes a few seconds to recognize @ as a command character.

Made no difference, the @ command was simply not producing a dropdown at any speed.  I tried about 20 times over the course of an hour, and @ did not respond.  It's working now.  As @Quistessa said, it is sometimes finicky.  For me that was for a couple hours last night.

You can try typing a space after the '@' then start with the name. In the early days of this version of the forum that was the ONLY way to get the link/alert.

@Jaylinbridges As soon as I type the space after @ I get the drop down. I have tried skipping the space. Then I notice it matters how quickly I type the next letter. Too fast and it doesn't always work.

I have only ever seen this "@" information passing from user to user. I was never able to find it in SL help. You can however jump over to the forum for Invision Software and read their manuals for this forum's software. Invision Help
