    Hi, I use WordPress. I turned off Nested Comments because I do not like the look. Instead I wanted to know how I could set up a “Mentioning” system, that so many websites (including css-tricks) use. So the idea that I have is , when someone wants to respond to someone in a comment, they can just type @NAME with the “NAME” just being whatever name the person used as a username when leaving the comment.

    Then when someone is mentioned in a comment with @NAME, the person gets an email saying XYZ mentioned you on and the email has a link to the thread.

    Is this possible and simple to set up ? I dont think their is a plugin that does this and i dont think wordpress has this in the comments system by default ?


    There are a few plugins that seem to do this. I haven’t tried any of them, but here’s what comes up if I do a search for “comments mention“:
