Getting @ mention email notifications in blog comments

    @piphut

    My users comment a lot in the blog comments and it would be nice if you could get an email notification when someone @mentions you in the blog comments, not just when they mention you in their status.

    Any way to do this?

    Thanks,

  • possible – you’ll need to code it in though as it is only setup to sift over activity content. Have a look at the bp_activity_at_message_notification functions on the basics.

    *edit – though main blog comments hit the activity stream filter – thus triggering @me mentions.

    Are you supposed to get a notification when someone uses an @mention at you in a forum? I don’t get any notifications. Is this normal? I think you should know when someone mentions you in a forum post.

    Can anyone answer this? Cheers :)

    the @atme only triggers if something hits the activity stream. so yes it should if you have the activity component enabled

    I can see the @ mentions when i click on the @mentions section in my profile but I don’t get a message in the notifications bar.
    Could you @mention me on this site and I’ll see if it pops up on this site. On mine I don’t get one.

    @rossagrant i don’t get any email notifications (even though enabled) on bp.org either – but on my normal installs, it works

    Hahaha, sorry to ask so many questions, I’m getting in a muddle but after playing with @mentions I think I get it now.

    I get an email if someone mentions me in their update, I also get an email if someone replies to one of my updates.

    I DON”T get an email though if someone simply @mentions me in a forum post. I can view that in my @mentions but there is no notification.
    Is that right and if so can we have a way of receiving a notification if someone mentions us in a forum post.

    Also I only get emails, it doesn’t appear in the notifications in the toolbar. Is that how it should work also.
    Thanks so much
    Ross :)
