Basic question on use of forum

Apologies for raising this, as I feel sure this has been covered before, but despite searching extensively on the forum, I can’t find the answer. I’ve noticed that it’s possible to reply to posts using @ and the username of a forum member but I can’t work out how you do that. The daft thing is, I managed to do it a couple of months ago, but I’ve forgotten again how to do it!

If someone can point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

Just write @ & the persons forum name

@Neil-26 - just include the ‘@‘ symbol as the first letter of a word as I have just done and the names of people in the thread are offered to you for selection. For more names type the @ and the initial letters of someone’s ID, e.g ‘@ri’ to find @Richard.Dane and more names will appear in a dripdown list.

Thanks for the quick replies - I’ll give it a try.

If you reply to a person’s post you don’t need the @. You’ll see this as a reply to you. You only need the @ to get someone’s attention. So if I write @Mike-B then Mike will get an alert.

Yes, thanks HH, I’ve just tried it following the earlier responses from MikeB and T-Elmi and I’ve got the hang of it now.

Wha’ !! who poked me, whats going on, oh 'tis yerself.
