Just in case anyone else runs into a similar problem, I was looking at the wrong api urls to get what I needed.
I needed to be getting JSON from the topic data, rather than category or post. Most everything is working now.
"NodeBB Plugin that allows users to mention other users by prepending an '@' sign to their username"
I installed the plugin but somehow users are not receiving notifications unless they follow the person who quoted. What could it be?
I'm experiencing the same thing.
That's a very weird set of symptoms, since the follower notifications have nothing to do with the mentions notifications...
When you are following somebody and get a notification when they mention you, is it the same "x mentioned you" notification?
@julian it's very strange. now both quote and reply are not working. if someone quotes me in a topic I don't receive any notification.
I have redactor compose instead of the tradicional compose btw.
@merlls don't think mentions work with redactor composer. see here...
