    How do I change the title of a thread? I would like to add the word "Tutorial" to my "Double Monkey Fist (ABOK 2206)" thread

    Go the the first post, click edit, then click "more options". That'll get you the title field so you can edit. :: EDITED:: I see you've found it already :)

    If you're still wondering how it is done to alert people with a space or another 'separator' character in their user name:

    Hello thePlumbah, hello AK Adventurer, hello 'T.H.Cone'

    All three should work.
    You have to use single quotes before and after the name including the at-sign AFAIK.
    single-qoute @ NAME single-quote

    - Single quote looks like this: '
    - Single quote is strictly vertical. Do not use the accent characters instead.
    - No spaces in between the single-qoutes, the at-sign and the name of the user.

    This way you should be able to alert people that did not trigger the auto completion feature like T.H.Cone. No pop-up appears for him, in contrast to AK Adventurer, because the auto-completion pop-up needs an at-sign followed by two 'real' characters (no spaces and no punctuation characters) at least to kick in.

    Well, finally, a how-to with me as an example that doesn't tell people how to ignore me.:D

    Cool tip, although its not needed now, at least not for coney or me, and several others with spaces that I've been tagging for a few months now. :)

    It currently works for all of us(as far as I know) with a space in our names with out the ' before and after the tag.. Maybe it was needed before, but its not now; They had a software change/update a few months ago(after the last posts about this here in this thread though) that changed it so that it works with just the @ sign, like it does for everyone elses name. :cool:

    Hello AK Adventurer,

    thanks for the info, I was not aware of that. Yes, you are right, it even works for Mr. T.H.Cone now.

    So no reason to be ignored from now on. :p

    It looks to be highlighted in both examples to me :) I always just type his full name out starting with @ and it lights him up. It won't self populate like most of them do though

    Hello cheeser,

    yes, you're right. After typing and sending the article above I saw this myself. This is how I found out about the update that even makes usernames like the one from Mr. Cone working. ;)

    This is the reason why I changed my entry into the text you can read up there now. You were simply too fast for me, quoting me just before I deleted my (now incorrect) text again. :cool:

    Thanks SR for composing and posting the FAQs.
    I've had a look through and searched for an answer to my search question but came up empty...
    Is there any way one can search one's own Conversations/PMs ?
    TIA :)

    Unfortunately, Xenforo doesn't offer that capability "out of the box." That, and ability to delete PCs en masse, would be welcome addition. It's been discussed to add both sometime in future with a custom add-on for PCs. Can't tell you when that might happen though.
