I’d like to use Activity Streams but not with @mentions. My users find it confusing having a display name and then their login name shows under their profile pic for @mention purposes. Trying to explain it to them is annoying. It also looks confusing.
I see that when I use the @mention I can find them by their display name anyway and their login name (@mention name) is beside it. If there are duplicate display names I just scroll down the list until I find the right one. So, it doesnt really need to show their login name as the @mention does it?
Anyway. I cannot find a way to remove @mentions unless I turn off Activity Streams.
If I turn off Activity Streams I also lose the ability to comment on a photo with a photo, with RT Media. Because they require Activity Streams to be activated for that to work. Again, very annoying.
Buddypress Groups is also useless without Activity Streams.
So is Friends.
At the moment it is easier to have Activity Streams turned off, than deal with the confusion but what a shame I cant use Activity Streams without it. Then I could use friends and groups and NOT confuse my users with @mentions.
Any help would be awesome. I did find a plugin called “No @mention” and it crashed my site.
Thank you all
