This plugin for CKEDitor will provide 'Facebook-like' mentioning of people in
any CKEditor field, including a suggestion box while you type. This is
triggered by typing an '@' character and at least 2 other characters. Names are
queried using a view and matched on the username of the user. When a name is
clicked, it can be inserted as a link to the user's profile page (user/#uid).


You can override the included view to your needs.

The mentions module provides an text format input filter that translates
@username or @uid strings to URL's.

This Backdrop port has been modified to work better with Mentions API:

  • A configuration page has been added to disable this module from replacing
    @whatever strings with hyperlinks to user pages. This is necessary because
    Mentions uses a filter which parses body text for text strings beginning
    in [@whatever] or @whatever.
  • If Mentions is enabled, the configuration link for this module will be nested
    under mentions' link.
