The Mentions module offers Twitter like functionality, recording all references
to a user's username - using the [@username] or [@#uid] filter format - from
various locations, providing a centralized page to track all mentions.


  • Tracks Mentions on any Entity.
  • An Input filter to convert [@username] or [@#uid] to the user's profile.
  • Customizable input ([@username], [@#uid]) and output (@username) patterns,
    including support for the Token module.
  • Optional: autocompletion of mentions using the jQuery textcomplete library.
    This currently does not work with CKEditor and consequently has not been
    tested. A configuration option is available to prevent loading the
    textcomplete library.
  • Integrations with:
    • Machine name - Use a Machine name field as the mention source.
    • Rules - React to created, updated and deleted mentions.
    • Views - Display a list of all mentions, mentions by user, and more.

The jQuery textcomplete library adds autocompletion of mentions, to install it
follow these steps:

  1. (optional) Download and install the Libraries API module.

  2. Download the jQuery textcomplete library and extract and move it into your
    libraries folder as 'textcomplete' (eg. sites/all/libraries/textcomplete).

Alternatively, you can use the Drush command 'mentions-library' or the Drush
make entry provided below:

libraries[textcomplete][download][type] = get
libraries[textcomplete][download][url] =

Usage / Configuration

Once installed, the Mentions filter needs to be enabled on your desired Text
formats, this can be done via the Text formats page.
