Username Mentions

This NodeBB plugin allows posters to reference (or mention) other users on a NodeBB by simply precluding the @ symbol before a username.

A link is automatically added to the post.


npm install nodebb-plugin-mentions

... or if you're feeling particularly risky, clone this repo and use npm link to "install" this plugin.

Future functionality

  • Actual checking to make sure the user mentioned actually exists
  • Notification to be sent to users when they are mentioned
  • CSS to make the anchor stand out a bit
