Recently I’ve updated my plugin “Comment Mention“. In the latest version ( 1.2.0 ), I’ve added bbpress compatibility for the mention.
Mentioning was already provided by bbpress, but auto-suggestion was not there. So my plugin fulfils that and also it sends an email notification to the mentioned user.
After installing this plugin, when you create a new topic or add a reply to a topic, and you mention a user using “@”, then that user will get an email notification about that.
That email is configurable from the backend. Watch below video for how it works.
