I am working on a sharepoint farm 2013 on-premises, and i am facing this problem:-

  1. i added a new team site collection, and i enable the publishing features.
  2. then i add a new discussion board list.
  3. but when i try to create a new discussion board item, and i type @ inside the item body, to mention someone nothing happen (no users were auto-completed).
  4. so i read about this issue, and seems that i have to enable the "community site" feature.
  5. now when i enabled the "Community Site Feature", i have noted that a new discussion board list have been created, but which look like a community, and not just a normal discussion list.
  6. so now i have these 3 lists inside my team site
    • NewsFeed
    • the Discussion board app which i added
    • the Discussion board app which get automatically created after enabling the "Community Site Feature".

now i can mention any user inside the 3 apps, by typing @ and selecting the username. but seems mentioning someone inside the Discussion board app which i added, will not be shown as an activity inside the user's my-site under "NewsFeed">>"Mentions", while mentioning the users inside the NewsFeed or inside the the Discussion board app which(which get automatically created), will show the activity inside the users "Mentions" area.. now the issue in my case that we already have a discussion board list with many items, and our customer asked us that they need to be able to mention users inside the discussion items, and to show the activity inside the "Mentions" ares.. so not sure if this is thing we can have inside the current discussion board ?

thisThis is the "Mentions" section i am talking about:-
