Are mentions enabled or disabled?

Description Description

The Mentions feature does a number of things, all of which will be turned off if you disable mentions:

  • Detecting and auto-linking @username in all BP/WP content.
  • Sending BP notifications and emails to users when they are mentioned using the @username syntax.
  • The Public Message button on user profiles.

Mentions are enabled by default. To disable, put the following line in bp-custom.php or your theme’s functions.php file:

add_filter( ‘bp_activity_do_mentions’, ‘__return_false’ );
