@mentions not working

  • simon townsend


    I’m new to buddypress and just tried using an @mention on my website for the first time. Typing @username creates a link to that members page but does not alert them via email, or message in their activity feed that they have been mentioned. I am using the ‘BuddyPress Usernames Only’ plugin to help simplify the member names…does this plugin cause issues with @mentions or are there any other known plugin’s that I may have installed that cause problems?? Thanks in advance.

    anyone…..? :(



    Hey Simon,
    Are you mentioning a user in a group forum?

    Someone can correct me if I am wrong but you won’t receive a notification email or note in the user bar if that is the case. You will only receive an email if someone users your username @mention in a status update that then hits the activity stream.

    Click on settings in your BP profile and look at notifications. It will list everything you get an email for. @mentions in forums isn’t one. I imagine if it was your inbox would be full of messages if you participate in a busy forum.

    Simply click on the @mentions link in your BP profile when you first login to get upto speed with @mentions.

    As I say, I’m sure a mod will correct me if I am wrong but you don’t get an email or notification in each instance when using @mentions.
    Hope this helps mate,
    Ross :)
