#2380 closed enhancement (fixed)

Blog posts don't recognize @username

Reported by: paulhastings0's profile paulhastings0 Owned by:

Component: Blogs Keywords:


WPMU 2.9.2
BP 1.2.3

When leaving a comment on a blog post @username is recognized and automatically converted into a link to @username's profile. However when writing a blog post @username is not recognized and it just comes out as plain text.

An example is here with @kasian4110.

Duplicate of #2372 - btw this is an enhancement rather than a defect as this currently isn't supported.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

I don't think this is a duplicate of #2372 - that ticket is about BP notifications, while this one is about autolinking.

The answer is to put

add_filter( 'the_content', 'bp_activity_at_name_filter' );

somewhere. paulhastings0, it'll work in bp-custom.php.

@boonebgorges - I'm afraid a little bit more needs to be done. That filter will only parse usernames and add the @ sign in front of the username.

A notification function will need to be created and hooked when a blog comment is posted.

@paulhastings0 - View the bp_activity_at_message_notification() in bp-activity-notifications.php for hints, then combine with Boone's filter snippet above.

Good point @r-a-y. It's even more complicated, because if the mention is early enough in the blog post (so that it gets included in the activity excerpt) a notification will get sent with the activity item. So you can either hook something to blog posts that cancels out the activity notification, or fix activity items so that they cache the entire content. Presumably the same thing will happen with forum posts, btw.

(In [5609]) Run the_content through bp_activity_at_name_filter so that @-mentions are recognized. See #2380

  • Keywords @username blog posts removed

In r5609, I added auto-linking for blog posts. For the broader issue of sending notifications, see #2372.
