Okay, here goes... @tone <<sigh>> I typed the @ and then I typed "tone". Nothing happened. No drop down list appeared. What's the long method? Maybe tone? Nope, that's for emailing.... Hmmm. I looked at the source code for the @CaliaMoko in your message, but it's really long. That would be unwieldy to do by hand. Maybe it's just my computer refuses to cooperate. ??
You might be going too quick. When you type @ the forum has to query the database, which depending on your internet connection could take a few seconds. Hang in there, I'm sure it will work if you persevere :)

I'm a speed typer, so I'll try to s l o o w   d o w n n n....

Tagging @tone

I typed that really slowly, but no excitement from the system at all. I even left the cursor sitting there a few seconds, but...nothing. Does some fancy thing like java or something need to be running for this to work?

Not java - javascript. They sound the same but they're worlds apart. I'd be very surprised if you have javascript disabled, but some people do. Are you one of them?! :o

I am not one of them. I checked to make sure and javascript IS enabled. So that isn't it.

And now the first post on the list of "unread posts" won't go away again. I think it's just me. Computers hate me. They want to make me crazy. Probably no one else will be able to replicate what's happening. But this post (http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=14689.0;topicseen) stays at the top of the list of unread posts. I haven't tried "mark all posts read" yet, but I imagine it'll go away if I do. But if I browse to the same post on the board, it'll be back on the list, etc, etc.

Just thought I'd let you know. I would @tone or @boydie, but that doesn't work for me, as you know.... <<sigh>>

Vicki, are you using an old computer by any chance? I wonder if you're having compatibility issues with an older browser vs newer code?

I don't think that's it, Tone. My computer is fairly new. I've had it a few months, but I bought an up-to-date one, hoping it would last me a few years into retirement. I'm running Chrome Version 64.0.3282.140 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10.

Specs are:
HP ProBook 470 G4
Processor--Intel Core i7-7500U CPU @ 2.70 GHz 2.90 GHz
64 bit
Windows 10 Pro Version 1709
OS Build 16299.125

I just had a thought @CaliaMoko

Do you have any kind of "pop up" blocker

I wonder if your browser is seeing the list that appears as a "pop up" and is blocking it?

And also to doubly confirm, you aren't putting a space after the @ symbol are you? - there must be no spaces

Me too. Chrome on desktop and mobile, no problems. I admit I'm baffled by this. Out of curiosity, could you try another browser and report back @Ramshackles and @CaliaMoko

I do have a popup blocker in Chrome, but I have had it set up to allow popups on the forum for some time. I just checked to make sure it is still on the list of allowed popups, and it is.

Also, I have consistently left no spaces, so that isn't it, either.

And, finally, in response to tone's suggestion to try a different browser, I logged in with Internet Explorer and tried to @somebody, but still no joy.

It has always been thus with me and computers. I never have the simple-solution problems. It's always something baffling, sometimes never to be resolved. I have long maintained I need my own personal IT department.

I think the failure of my computer to erase "read" messages from my list of "unread messages" may have something to do with refreshing. It's like I have to do something else to refresh the screen and get rid the messages I've read or marked read. But, if so, I still don't know what to do about it. To fix it, that is. I can browse away from the site and come back as a work around. Although, I feel like some of the "unread" messages are disappearing along with the "read" ones sometimes. I haven't tracked closely enough to be sure, but it sure seems like two or three songs sometimes disappear from the list when I just follow the link to one unread the message and then come back.

Testing tagging on my phone
@boydie. Ok looks like that didn't work. So that's two devices that don't work. Plus the computer is on the computer network and the phone is through the cell phone network as I have wifi blocked on it.

Trying another computer in a few minutes.
