Mentions (8 posts)

    Hi! I have a couple of issues where I believe it's room for improvement regarding "mentions" in the p2 theme, as described here:
    http://wppolyglots.wordpress.com/2010/08/02/excited-to-see-this/#comment-74

    Basically, it would be nice if
    - the "tooltip" text (when hovering) for both comment and post authors included their username, and
    - it would be possible to either auto-add users posting blog posts (when this is set to open for any registered user: this would be important both in a multisite environment and on wordpress.com) or at least let the blog administrator somehow get the email address of the poster, so that s/he can be added manually.

    Is this doable? I could happily add those tooltips myself, but the second part of my question exceeds my coding prowess...

    Some wysiwyg would be useful too.

    Add an option to enable notifications on comments too.

    @Peter
    I'm not sure I understand the tooltip thing. Why do you need to see the username?

    For the automatic registering of users posting the blog, that's an idea we've heard a lot and we're considering how to implement that in a future version.

    thanks for the response :) if you're using mentions, you have to write @username, right? but most often, the display name is not equal to the username, (like for instance zè = vanillalounge). If the username isn't displayed as for instance a tooltip, I can't figure out any other way to get to know what to write after the '@' to mention somebody...

    Peter, that's a great point. I understand now. :)

    As a follow-up note, you can trigger mentions using the user's "Display Name" also, which is what P2 displays as the author for a new post or author of a comment. The mentions "name map" tracks both username and display name.

    hmm... does that really work if the diaplay name has a space in it? Maybe the problem was just that the "author" wasn't added to the blog.. maybe someone (ehrr..) should write a function that pops up suggestions when you start writing mentions ;) (would that be resource intensive? slow down the site?)
