How to tag a username in a post?

Does this board allow usernames to be actively tagged in a post?

"@" doesn't seem to work. Am I missing some obvious setting?

@schmeg, Just click on the "@" button on the post of the user you want to tag. Otherwise, it looks like this code might work if you want to manually type it:
Code: Select all
[b]@schmeg[/b],

@Matt, does tagging this way send a notification to that user?

My tagged username @schmeg in your post just looks like plain characters, not a hotlinked thing (like on Facebook, etc.).

I found a phpBB3 extension called Simple Mentions that adds this feature: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2423491
