No Notifications For Mentions In Comments

  • briggsy326


    I have just recently installed BuddyPress on my own website after seeing it being used on another site and I very much like it. One thing that I am not 100% sure of is how the ‘notifications’ work – they seem to be working fine apart from there being no notifications when someone mentions a user in a comment on a post…

    … I’m not sure if it is meant to be that way or not, but I do know that the other site I saw BuddyPress on did have notifications whenever a user was mentioned in a comment on a post (so I know it’s possible).

    Am I missing something really obvious, or is BuddyPress designed to not give notifications for mentions in comments on a post (even though the ‘mention’ itself does link to the users profile).

    Any help much appreciated.

    Wordpress version 4.1.1
    BuddyPress version 2.2.1

    I had the same problem.

    This will fix it.

    It will add a “Notifications” area to your profile page where your username mentions will queue up.



    @xander206 Thanks for the response. 🙂

    I had a quick look at the link your provided and I’m not really sure it’s quite what I am looking for.

    At present there is already a ‘notifications’ area on the profile page (and on the ‘admin’ bar at the top of the page) and notifications for @ mentions on the profile itself are working and also notifications for friend requests are working too.

    The only thing that isn’t working is notifications for @ mentions on comments on posts. Whenever someone replies to a comment on a post and starts it with @ username it is being linked to their profile but it is not sending a notification to that person that they have been mentioned.




    Post comments are outside of the user notification. @mention scope is handling site and user activities. A post is also an activity, but @mention in it is not an activity. It’s just a link to a profile in a post.

    When you go to message settings on your profile, you can see the whole items covered by mention and email notification. Blog post are not included.




    Thanks for the response. 🙂 Makes sense.

    Is there anyway to do it though so it does happen? Some kind of code I could create? I have seen it work on another site where @mentions in post comments do give a notification but no idea how they did it…
