Is there hook ‘do_action’ after posting comment with mentioned user?

You can disable the comment mentioning by simply unchecking the “Enable mentioning by comment ID” option.

Is there any hook after adding post with mentioned users?

1 year 4 months ago


I’m really sorry, but there is no hook for this yet. We may take this into consideration for future versions.

If I enable this feature on my website, does the user need to login first before being mentioned?

Or can I mention the user even they don’t login? (just use the normal process of commenting – filling name & email only in the comment area)

1 year 5 months ago

Hi inchenaim,

This can be configured by the “Enable guest mentioning” option. You can either disable and enable it as you want.

When mentioning a comment ID, is there a way to show the mentioned comment without having to hover over the #XX?

For example, after submitting a comment mentioning another comment, in the body of the submitted comment show the mentioned comment instead of the #XX link.

Hi Igor,

I’m really sorry, but the addon doesn’t have such a feature. However, we’ll take this into consideration for future versions.

Can you control who can tag who? EG: I want to be able to notify users of my site, but I don’t want the users to be able to notify other users…

Hi bob,

I’m sorry but there is no way to do that.

However, you can do it using the following hook:


2 years 4 months ago

Okay, so if I only want administrators to be able to tag people, I use the hook? Where would I place this?

2 years 4 months ago

Hi Bob,

Yes, you should use this hook and make some changes and make it works as you need. And the hook should be added in the functions.php file.

2 years 4 months ago

That code just completely killed my site. Can elaborate please.

2 years 4 months ago

Hi Ross,

Using this hook you should make all inspections you need to make it work as you need. If the code does not work, thus something wrong with the code you wrote. Sorry but in this case, we can’t help you.

How do I set the handle to match the users nickname instead of the username?

Hello there, very interested in your product however I need to dynamically control which users can be tagged on a post by post basis. Do you give access to any hooks that would allow me to filter the user list dynamically (thinking via functions.php or external plugin). Thank you

5 years 6 months ago

Yes you can do this using these filter hooks:

1. ‘wpdumc_user_search_result’ (filters users in user search button opened search process)
apply_filters(‘wpdumc_user_search_result’, $users, $postID, $sarchKey);

2. ‘wpdumc_mentioned_users’ (filters users in textarea search process)
apply_filters(‘wpdumc_mentioned_users’, $data_uses, $comment);

Does the mentioning system work with only users that have replied to a comment or can we mention any user that exists in our WP users table?

6 years 1 month ago

You can mention any user (not guest). It doesn’t matter that user has posted a comment or not.
