Problems with mentioning

  • Greg Marshall


    Hi I am new to buddypress but I have picked it up fairly easy so far (have experience with WordPress) however I have noticed the same problem many other people have, the site displays people with their Display name – but @mention only works with their username. upon reading through google, this site and wordpress support etc. The only real solution offered was BP-Labs, however this plugin is now outdated.

    I am running WP 3.9.1 and Buddypress 2.0.1.

    Website is

    I am wondering if there is any suggestion so that if I want to use @mention I can use the display name. the site is being set up as a company intranet. It will be private and non accessible by public, except for the first page prompting for a login.

    Please let me know how I can adjust the @mention to work by display name, I am happy to locate specific files and update lines of code if you can provide me the location and code to place

    Looking forward to a reply

    p.s. the site is still in development so please dont expect much to be on it so far, I just want to make sure the desired features and function are working to our expectations
