    Hi,

    No, the plugin doesn’t have this feature. But, bbPress already has that, and it automatically links users like this: @millan.

    Thanks, I totally missed it.

    I just tried it. It works only if you mention the user name, not the real name that the user could have possibly specified, right?
    And the mention doesn’t autocomplete, right?

    Autocomplete for the name would depend on the editor used and many other factors, and I currently have no plans in developing such a feature. Most users that use bbPress also use BuddyPress that has more complex mentions implementation, but even that doesn’t has autocomplete.

    I know this is an older thread but I have a questions about mentions. I only use bbPress at the moment and was wondering if I got buddypress and activate it, do I have to show it anywhere on my site? What I mean is can I just activate buddypress without using it – I only want the @mentions feature.

    The reason I want buddypress mentions is so it will send an email notification to the person mentioned.

    Thanks!

    BuddyPress is an awfully complex plugin that integrates into a lot of different areas, so there is no way to make it silent and use only one tiny feature.

    Thanks for the response. That’s what I was afraid of. With the bbPress mentions, how does it work if it doesn’t send the mentioned user an email? What’s the point of it?

    There are few features in bbPress that only partially work (threaded replies, for instance). And while bbPress is, in general, very good plugin, the lack of development leadership and direction is very noticable when you try to use some of the features that were left in there, but not working.

    I was looking at your GD bbPress Toolbox Pro plugin. Does it have the mentions functionality? Love what it can do.

    No, it doesn’t. Reliable components that can implement mentions popup for suggestions that will work with different editor types are not very reliable and right now I have no plans to add it.
