Re: How To: Tag Someone in a Post

Any thoughts on how to do this on mobile? None of those options exist when viewing the mobile website version of the board.

So my @Riley_Ring doesn't drop anything down for me to choose an actual tag. Can the text formatting and tagging be added to the mobile version of the website? Or if it can be done manually using html — <b>testing bold html tag here</b> or if markdown works — *this would italicized if the board uses markdown*, or if neither of those work, maybe there's another "language" used entirely?

I'm rarely responding from my PC so having a way to do this on mobile would be nice.

Going to test some other random formatting codes from different platforms for any results:

<blockquote>blockquote, used by Disqus</blockquote>

_old google+ way of adding bold_

But I doubt any of these will work, but I'll know in a few seconds. Here goes...

Re: How To: Tag Someone in a Post

I guess that answers that. No formatting that I can figure seems to work on mobile. Even viewing the desktop site I get the editing tools, but the @ "drop down" doesn't appear. 

 

So maybe if the forum can be made a little more mobile friendly since mobile traffic is half of all internet traffic. 

 

Thanks!
