User mentions is not working consistently
I've started a similar topic before, but because that is now closed, here I am again.. 😅
One of my readers appears to be properly signed in (ie, there's a "W" WordPress icon on her display picture), however when I try to tag her using @name, it does not work. However, other name mentions have worked on my site, so user mentions is working at least somewhat.
Here is the url of her comment: https://thefangirlverdict.com/2021/06/11/so-im-on-a-podcast/#comment-98311
And here is the url of the comment where I tried to tag her using @name: https://thefangirlverdict.com/2021/06/11/so-im-on-a-podcast/#comment-98340
Would really appreciate your help and advice, thank you!
Please check and make sure you're using the correct nicename for mentioning.
WordPress has three different names for Users:
- Username (Login) – Being used for website authorization (login, sign-in) action
- Display Name – Other users and guests see in user profile details and next to user posts (post author name).
- Nicename – Unique name
After a regular user registration process, Username, Display Name, and Nicename are set the same. For example, If you register a user with “Martin59” Username your user names look like this:
- Username – Martin59
- Display Name – Martin59
- Nicename – martin59
