Mentions

Mentions brings social sharing to TinyMCE.

Contribute to this page

It is now possible for users of your application to send notifications to other users through an @mention in the document. @mentions are of course incredibly commonplace in social software such as Twitter and Facebook along with social enterprise applications such as IBM’s Connections suite.

Your users can communicate every day using @mentions on social networks, and they expect to be able to use them when creating content too.

Downloading Mentions

A TinyMCE Enterprise subscription includes the ability to download and install the Mentions feature for the editor.

Please note that this feature requires a backend integration with a system to handle listing of users, as well as sending the notification. This is explained in our example code, but there are two integration points: getting a userlist when @abc... is typed, and on submitting the form, sending a notification to the @mentions in the document.
