Please could someone explain in simple language how one tags another poster. Thanks.
Touch them as you run by.
you type @ followed by the username, with no spaces. as you type some options will appear - click the one you want.
Cor. It was that easy. Thanks Emily!
Be like that, then.
@racroesus Like what? Have I offended you in some way?
@Yoda what were you testing?
look in your alerts, @Lascarina
It frustrates me that this facility doesn't work for me . . . it did initially, but not for ages now and it doesn't matter which browser I use.
do you not get any dropdown? you don't need to use that, however - i didn't when i just tagged above
I don't think you are missing much, kibosh. It just suddenly occurred to me that I didn't know how to do tagging and I thought I ought to learn.
I do but the auto-complete doesn't work, so even though the drop down list appears I still have to manually complete the username. I know, it's only a few more keystrokes . . .but then the drop down list gets in the way. Grumble grumble.
@kibosh try clicking your curser only on the letters that are needed to complete the name, rather than at the beginning of the name, from the dropdown list and see if that works.
You are a wizard. Thank you so much marlin, that was the problem, I wasn't doing it right I'll be tagging people left, right and centre now that I know the secret technique.
*I'm thinking of the future and life in general, could you please help me with all the other things I don't do correctly? *
I've the same problem with the auto-complete too. So I end up typing it from the list in the drop down menu. Not impossible but slightly irritating.
Sometimes I can't even manage to 'click' the Like button to work either.
EDIT trying your suggestion @marlin . Hmm- appeared to work but then there was only one letter to go with your name. trying @Lascarina . Yes. Brilliant marlin.
I've had problems too @Lara mfl 05 . Just tried it and it appears to work, but other times I click on the drop down and nothing happens!
