Newbie Question - How do you Tag Someone in a Comment?

I should be able to figure this out, but so far I haven't. I see that sometimes I will get tagged in a comment, and I would like to know how that's done. When someone comments on my post, or replies to one of my comments, I get the notification, but tagging I think is something different. Probably you can also tag someone in the body of your post.

I see you can hit the little arrow for a "reply to" someone's comment, but I don't see how to tag someone. I'm sure it's something easy and simple.

Ooh, I just decided to try the colored font. That's rather nice. I haven't messed around with the text editor, but that is a nice feature and I'm glad PP has included all the options.

amyk49 : you add an ampersand to that person's username. The ampersand disappears once the comments is posted (If I've done this correctly....) This may feel familiar.

Right amyk49 as &msduri has indicated that is the way of tagging other users. You can take a look at the FAQs and see additional functionalities such as creating tags, etc. Nice work on the colored text, I find this to be a key differentiator here at Persona Paper.

Oh, okay. Yes that does sound familiar ;). Thanks so much. I can't believe I never even tried it.

I do think I'll be using the colored text and different fonts from now on. It's so easy to do. Thanks for your reply :)

If I am not mistaken, & ampersand takes you to a person's profile page. # sign tags a person or a topic check this out Dawnwriter and

You can do lots of things with the text post editor here. You can even tinker with the HTML source code. To tag someone use the & followed by the person's username. Like this amyk49 . To tag a subject or topic, use the # symbol like on Twitter. Hope this helped emoticon :smile:

If you want to tag a person so that they get it in their notifications, it will need the & in front of it. :)

Okay, great! Thanks so much for the reply.

you can tag someone by using the "& " just type the ampersand with the username of the person you want to tag.. just be sure not to type any character or symbols near the username or it can't be tag. example amyk49 . if you put the "." with your username it can't be tag so you to put space in between the username and the characters e.g. amyk49 .
