@mark-coniglio hi Mark. At this time I am not aware of any regression with the mentions plugin, which would usually point to some sort of configuration error.
Do you see any errors on the client side, in the browser dev tools?
I would like that new posts from normal members need approval first, but posts from the "staff members" should pass through. I think the post queue currently applies to all users. It would be great if we can set that for each user group instead.
Makes sense. Please open an issue on our github.
