How to Mention Users in BuddyPress0:56 with Zac Gordon
When you mention a user, they receive a notification that you have included them in your post. You can mention a user in your status updates by using the @ character followed by their username, like @username.
If we come to either our Profile Activity page, or the Main Activity
page for the site, we have the option to post the status update.
When we post this, we also have the option
to tag other users, or mention them in our post.
We could do this by using the at sign,
and then typing the person's username.
Now, when we post this update, and log in as Anthony Hunter.
We'll see a notification that we've been mentioned.
Which will take us to our mentions, and the post
that I made mentioning this person by their user name.
