    Not sure if this is supposed to be posted here as it is also part of bbpress?

    The @mentions in the forum only work as a link, but the pop-up doesnt show to select a member.
    Also, after using @mention by manually typing the name, user does not get a notification. Not by mail nor by the notifications widget.

    Is that normal?

    Hi AJ,
    As far as I am aware, I don’t think mention notification is supported in bbPress forums out of the box. You will most probably need a plugin for that.

    Do you have it or plan to build it? I’ll buy 🙂
    Or do you know of such plugin?

    Hi AJ,
    There already exist 2 plugin for the same.

    You may use any of the two

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbp-mentions-email-notifications/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbp-toolkit/

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Thanks Brajesh, I use BBP toolkit which works fine but:

    no namebox popup
    no notification in widget

    Is that not possible?

    Hi AJ,
    From the looks of screenshot, It seems the plugin did not add BuddyPress Notification. Please report it in the plugin’s support forum and they will assist you.

    regards

    Hi Brajesh,

    I am not sure about not including it. It may be a rights thing. It all works for admin but not for users.
    I tested throroughly and here’s the quick recap https://cl.ly/a2589603881b

    Regards, AJ

    EDIT: https://cl.ly/632bb7fa477b You can see here that @mentions popup also doesn’t happen now in composer.
