@Mentions on GitHub Pages
GitHub Pages is available in public repositories with GitHub Free, and in public and private repositories with GitHub Pro, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, and GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see "GitHub's products."
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:
plugins: - 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.
