Simple Tagging.
Description : This plugin will create a section of buttons on your Posting Page & Quick Reply that makes it simple to tag anyone that has posted in that thread (and appears in the thread summary) simply by clicking on their name. Also, there is an 'All' button to tag everyone that is listed and optional buttons for group tagging. You can call those buttons whatever you want (Staff?) and then enter the usernames of those people into the plugin settings.

Instructions : Download, import to your forum, enable it and you should be good to go!
There are option to change the title of the button container, enable/disable the group button, change the title of the group button and if enabled, you'll need to enter the USERNAMES of the people you want associated with that button.

Required Inputs : The title, enable/disable group button, group button title & usernames for that group.

There is no CSS added to the plugin.
The CSS to target and add to your style sheet is:

.tagholder { /* div that holds everything */
border: 1px solid blue;
border-radius: 5px;
input.tagnames[type="button"] { /* buttons to tag users */
margin: 2px;

For all support issues, please leave a post in the support thread and remember to tag me @pebbleleague.

Enjoy! :)

This is really a super plugin that simplifies things for my users. Easiest way to tag someone in a thread.

Confirmed and approved ! This makes so many more members use the tagging system. Request add groups (and exclusion from groups), add local board moderator tag. Also @nina below might want a plugin to automate Love=5☆ versus hate=1☆ ??

thanks works great could you make a version that only has the groups you create not all in the threads?

@pebbleleague would be nice if i could colour code the labels so people can quickly navigate to staff members. This is awesome and would recommend

its great, but really needs option to change to search and list threads not posts, or that should be the default

I love this - only criticism is that on a fast moving thread you get to a new page and must manually add people for a few posts but otherwise it has added to the forum. People that never tagged have suddenly started...and are having fun, as the Notifications show !!!!

@megyn : Nobody else has reported that. If you make a post in support, I'll see why that is happening for you.

I don't like that once you press the button on who you want to tag that it erases your entire post. You have to make the decision to tag people first.

Pretty awesome. Would be amazing if it could detect everybody who has posted in the thread, even not in the summary.
