you need to wrap the username in [ mention ] & [ /mention ] tags to get this:
Clicking the link takes you to the users profile....

A frontpage article will be forth coming soon. I just installed it live last night and had to go to bed...
The format is @<username>;

Ah I see - you need the semi colon at the end too... Anyway it can be done without that?

Hmm - @ZeroHour: both you, @localzuk and myself have been mentioned at least twice, but the count is still at 1?

@Gatt: are you using semi-colons or colons?? does that make a difference??

This is due to you tagging yourself I think.

Interesting - it changed the semi-colon to a colon when it posted the message (I swear blind I typed a semi!)

would be nice if it autotagged a username! though this would prob slow things down too much..
