I would love to have an @mention autosuggest feature in the topic reply/create textarea. You probably know how this would work but quickly, when you type '@' it would create a popup of the names of users and filter them based on the characters after the '@'. Maybe it doesn't even spawn until you have typed in at least a character or two.

There is a BuddyPress plugin that does exactly this: <a href="">BP Labs</a>. But it does not extend to the BBPress forums. I'm not aware of a plugin that does this for BBPress.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 2.7

Would make a good plugin first. We'll likely want to incorporate WordPress's wp_is_large_network( 'users' ) functionality.

Moving to 2.7 to give it another think then.

  • Milestone changed from 2.7 to 2.8

Bumping all 2.7 to 2.8 milestone.

BuddyPress as of 2.1 now includes @mentions autosuggest, we could probably port a fair chunk of this code:

I found code a while ago and created a small plugin to do this
