  • Inserting a $username ??

    I've seen on another board where the admin had used a code in the topic line and in the body where the board user's name was showing up.

    This makes it very handy to get people's attention on something.

    I tried a couple tests (using $username) example: Hey $username! in the topic, but it didn't work.

    Anyone know how to do this using vB2 ?
    I'm currently using 3.6.4.

        You can't use varibles in posts.

            You would have to modify the code in order to do this.

              I know it can be done. I've seen it.

              Could this possibly be a hack?
