    Ok, im sure im missing something simple, but I can no longer reference or thank a member in a post using the @member link. How can I thank or reference @powerslide for example so it links to the member profile and is this any different when using a desktop, phone or tablet?

    Thanks!

    Umm, ok, so it worked in this post but not some of my others, I'll chalk this up to too many whiskey sours.

    Please disregard.

    :cheers:

    I can add that it is fussy and if you don't leave a space after the link, it won't work.

    Don't know if you noticed but if you put the @ symbol and start typing the member's name, it will pop up a list of suggestions. I always use the list since that's what the system is offering so I can't miss.

    I've noticed that it will also wipe out other text that comes after it if you try to go back and add a link later.

    Example...

    Thank you @DarrellV very much. Wasn't sure if something changed or if it was just me. Didn't know about the pop up list, very helpful.

    Thanks again!
