Forum software broken for using @ tagging?

Was there an update to the forum software today that broke the capability to tag someone in a discussion by using @nickname? It sure looks like it from where I'm typing.

Yup. Noticed this earlier this morning.

@sdagley I noticed that sometimes it does not work. Hopefully, this can help.

  1. You cannot just copy and paste. You do need to type the @ sign and then start typing the username. It should then bring up a list of users, where you can select the right one.
  2. You can also just type the following in the box with the proper username. This is the code that is automatically generated.

@techjason Thanks for the reminder I could be less lazy and type the tag markup myself. :-) I have not found any case where typing @ and the username works however.

@techjason <-- i typed that, no copy/paste, there was no box or popup. It used to work, but i also just updated to Catalina so who know.

@Dylan_YYC It doesn't work on Mojave either. I'm on Firefox 69.0.3

Hey all, just wanted to chime in about this. Today the Jamf Nation team released a new build that improves functionality in many aspects of the community. We are aware of the issues with tagging other community members and are presently working on a fix.
