Mention

This template gives users a quick way of creating a user mention by simply typing {{ (opening the template dialog) and then selecting the template @ . Optionally, users can activate (email or wiki) notifications if they are mentionned on the wiki.

Importing the template

The import file is included in the archive file HW-mention.zip. Unpack the zip file first.

On the page Special:Import, follow these steps:

  1.    Select file and choose HW-mention.xml.
  2.    Enter an interwiki prefix. Since this field is required, simply add hw (for hallowelt).
  3.    Keep the selection Import to default locations.
  4.    Click Upload file... .


The template is now available in your wiki.

Important!If, after importing the template to your wiki, the input field is not displayed when you first integrate the template into a wiki page, you need to open the template in the Template namespace, make a "null-edit" change (e.g., insert spaces) and save the template. The input field should now be displayed correctly when using the template.
