mentions seem to be broken

7 Replies

Mentions don't seem to be working properly using the Chrome browser on Windows.

When quoting a post, the @ does not bring up any of the thread participants except of course those named in the quote already, and @? does nothing.

And when I am trying to mention a name that is quite common among the many colleagues I have, I have to scroll to get to those near the bottom of the list (or even alphabetically beyond those names that are visible in the scrolling region) - but scrolling seems to then make that list of names go away leaving none to be selectable.

Maybe this affects other browsers and platforms as well ... please advise if you see this too.


same here with Firefox on Windows.


@Uwe S. I am using Firefox and it is working for me. But it has not worked on my android phone for a long time.

@Steve Babiak  

mine works, but the automatic scrolling often  doesn't.

@Walt Payne

thanks it works now but not some hours before.


Did anyone ever find a solution? I also have this issue using any browser on a PC (haven't tried a Mac at all).

Looks like this issue hasn't been brought up by anyone recently. Mentions still don't work for me. I've tried IE, Firefox and Chrome on Windows and Chrome and Safari on Mac. It appears to look correct when I hit Quote, though.
