This plugin allows you to type a pre-configured marker character, such as "@" or "#", and get suggested values for the text matches. The feed of items to be displayed in the autocomplete suggestion dropdown can be provided in a synchronous or asynchronous way. It allows you to add custom user mentions or tags to the editor.
The Mentions plugin that provides this functionality is an implementation of the Autocomplete feature.
This is an official plugin provided and supported by CKEditor developers.
The recommended way to install all CKEditor add-ons is to create a custom build by using Online builder. To do that, click the Add to my editor button on the plugin page. When you are done, click the Build my editor button on the right side of the page to go to Online builder.
