How do I mention/tag other members in posts and replies?

When writing a post on HealthUnlocked, some members may want to notify another member of the post, either because they think it will be of interest to them, or because they think that member will have something to say about it. To do this, you can use our “@” mentions feature. 

To notify another member that they are being mentioned, follow these steps:

1. Write a post. When you wish to mention another member, type the “@” character immediately followed by the member’s username, with no spaces: @username
2. As you are typing, a drop-down menu will appear with a list of members to choose from. Select the member you are trying to mention.
3. Once your post is published, the member you have mentioned will receive a notification letting them know.

Please note that you can only:

  • Mention members who follow the community you are posting in 
  • Mention members in the body of a post or reply, NOT in the title of a post
