    Is there a way to get an individual contributor/moderators attention on a post or even message them privately? There are instances where certain people’s expertise apply specifically to a query and it would be good to be able to get their attention directly.

    The forum doesn’t have that function built in although it would certainly be nice. I have functioned in that role up to this point.

    If you address someone in the forum, they will definitely see the mention and can respond

    Must keep you busy!

    I guess not even the traditional hashtag works eh, i.e. #mikeblumenthal? Shame.

    Its a great suggestion and I going to look into solutions. But mentioning someone, for now, is the best bet.

    I don’t have any experience in forums on WordPress but I have heard of BuddyPress being a popular plugin with social features: https://buddypress.org/about/

    I did some lightweight research earlier and did find BuddyPress. It might be more than we need but it could very well work. Thanks!
