Uses
The DragonByte User Tagging mod adds multiple new features to your site, including extending the user mention feature to also work for user groups (auto-complete enabled). It also adds the ability to add Twitter-style hashtags to your posts, with auto-complete for existing hashtags used by other members.

These extra features help increase content discoverability and drive user engagement by offering them new ways to interact with each other and with the rest of the site.

Primary Features

User group mentions
Typing @ then the name of a user group will mention all users in that user group, with full auto-complete support. Controlled via user group permissions, and works in posts as well as user profiles.

Hashtags: Typing # then any given word will generate a hashtag that links to a search result containing all posts where this hashtag is used. Auto-complete is supported for existing hashtags. Works in posts and user profiles. Users can also watch hashtags from the results page.

User tags: Users can be tagged in threads in a similar way thread are currently tagged with words. Controlled via user group permissions.

Feature List

User Group Mentions

The ability to mention user groups are an invaluable tool for active forums who want a quick-fire way of alerting staff members to goings-on that do not warrant a full report, or as a way to alert a small group of members such as site supporters.

You have complete control over which user groups can be mentioned, and which user groups can mention other user groups. For performance reasons, user group alerts are disabled by default and must be enabled on a per-user group basis. You also have a "Can mention user groups" permission to restrict the ability to mention groups.

The user group mentions even work in profile posts, and they are styled with the user group's CSS styles!

Hash Tags
Not only a powerful tool for finding individual posts, but they can also be used as a form of expression. With powerful "trending" features powering the "Trending HashTags" widget, you will always know what are the most popular hashtags being used across your site.

If your members use hashtags to describe their own posts, you will find they can be an invaluable tool for quickly finding other posts with similar content. DragonByte User Tagging uses XenForo 2's search engine result rendering to display other posts with the same hashtag, meaning no additional customization if you have already customized your search results on your site. This also means it will be easier to expand support to other content types in the future :)

Speaking of other content types, like user group mentions, hashtags are fully supported in profile posts!

Using the same system as forums and threads, users can also "Watch" hashtags, receiving on-site notifications, and optionally also an email whenever a hashtag they are watching is used anywhere on the site!

User Tags
Your members will also have the ability to tag other users in a thread, very similar to how content tags are added to threads at the moment. To users with the appropriate permissions, a new option appears next to the existing thread tag feature that will open a very similar overlay to allow them to enter other user names.

Who can tag users in threads is controlled both globally (XenForo options, next to the existing content tag options), per-user group, and per-forum. On the subject of forums, the alerts (and search results when viewing threads any user is tagged in) respect forum permissions. Users are never alerted if they are tagged in private forums.

Further than that, each individual member will have a new Privacy option under the "Allow users to..." block, called "Tag you in content".
