How to Add @mention Username Under bbPress User Avatars

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to display a user @mention name directly below their avatar within a bbPress forum topic? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add @mention username under bbPress user avatars.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s bp-custom.php file:

function wps_at_mention(){
    echo '<span class="bbp-user-nicename"><span class="handle-sign">@</span>'. bp_core_get_username(bbp_get_reply_author_id(bbp_get_reply_id())) .'</span>' ;
add_action( 'bbp_theme_after_reply_author_details', 'wps_at_mention' );

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
