@all / Mention everyone at once.

    I have had a crack at this, and it worked a little but:
    1) it’s too hacky (editing core files)
    2) it broke activity replies (no text in a reply)

    So what do you guys think about this:

    * Finds and links @-mentioned users in the contents of activity items
    * @since 1.2.0
    * @param string $content The activity content
    * @param int $activity_id The activity id
    * @uses bp_activity_find_mentions()
    * @uses bp_is_username_compatibility_mode()
    * @uses bp_core_get_userid_from_nicename()
    * @uses bp_activity_at_message_notification()
    * @uses bp_core_get_user_domain()
    * @uses bp_activity_adjust_mention_count()
    * @return string $content Content filtered for mentions
    function bp_activity_at_name_filter( $content, $activity_id = 0 ) {
    global $wpdb;

    $usernames = bp_activity_find_mentions( $content );

    if(is_site_admin() && in_array(“all”, $usernames)){
    $all_users = $wpdb->get_col( $wpdb->prepare(“SELECT $wpdb->users.user_login FROM $wpdb->users”));
    foreach($all_users as $i_users){
    array_push($usernames, $i_users);

    if ( !$usernames = array_unique( $usernames ) )
    return false;

    foreach( (array)$usernames as $username ) {
    if ( bp_is_username_compatibility_mode() )
    $user_id = username_exists( $username );
    $user_id = bp_core_get_userid_from_nicename( $username );

    if ( empty( $user_id ) )

    // If an activity_id is provided, we can send email and BP notifications
    if ( $activity_id ) {
    bp_activity_at_message_notification( $activity_id, $user_id );

    $content = preg_replace( ‘/(@’ . $username . ‘b)/’, “@$username“, $content );

    // Adjust the activity count for this item
    if ( $activity_id )
    bp_activity_adjust_mention_count( $activity_id, ‘add’ );

    return $content;

    (The site admin check is to stop spamming :))
    And also, how would I go about using this as part of a plugin (I think i’d have to use add and remove filter or something).
    If anyone can take a look at this and point me in the right direction to get all this working i’d be grateful!

    Hmmm… I thought more people might want to utilise this sort of feature!



    You could create a function that if user is admin a check near update box all users get a notification. Funny you bring this up because I am working on an Extended Notification plugin and this is one of the features.

    I wouldn’t go hacking the @mentions code.
