You can use @mentions within any Jekyll page or post, just like you would in a comment or issue within a repository.
To enable @mentions, you must add the following line to your site's _config.yml file:
gems: - jekyll-mentions
If you don't have a _config.yml file, you will need to create one in the root of your GitHub Pages repository. For more information, see Jekyll's official plugins documentation.
@mention a user within your Jekyll posts or pages as you would elsewhere on GitHub.
Note: @mentions link the mention to the user's GitHub profile. However, they don't notify the user.
To preview the output of @mentions locally:
jekyll-mentionsto your site's _config.yml file
- Make sure you're using the latest version of the GitHub Pages Gem, which contains these dependencies and plugins.
Note: @mentions are currently only supported in the page and post body. @mentions within includes, layouts, and other sources of content may not render properly.
For more information, see The Jekyll Mentions Gem.
