How to disable @ linking within code tag

When using code or pre tags, @ should not create a link (@JasonBarnabe). How do I disable this?

If there's no way to do this, can someone at least point me to the code that does this or even the name of this feature? Searching for "@ or at" isn't giving me much, obviously.

    as an aside another feature using hashtags (a # in front of a word as long as it not first character on line, which automarks words with a #hashtags (or e.g. #markdown and clicking sends you to search.

    $Configuration['Garden']['Format']['Hashtags'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Format']['Hashtags'] = FALSE;


    idiosyncracies with hashtags

    firstcharacter - is a # therefore it uses #markdown instead of #hashtag

    Thanks for the info. Sounds like I'll have to muck around. I'll share the solution if I come up with one.

    This forum has the same problem, it's just your inclusion of " immediately before the @ that prevented it.

    // test
    
    @include minion
    
    
    // end test
    

    you might have to look in js as well

    I haven't tried geshi plugin - maybe you would have better luck (but maybe not).

    so do i :)

    It won't be for the faint hearted because you have to back reference to see if @ is within a pre or code tag.

    it might be simpler to change if you want to exclude certain @mentions altogether.

    e.g. you could exclude @include and any other @ related to code and let usernames evaluate as is.

    or you could may change the preg_replace to also search for <code or <pre. and >pre or >code closing tags.seems like alot of trouble for the benefit.

    or maybe validate against against an existing username in the database before changing to an anchor.

    lines around 1162 in Mentions routine in class.format.php
