Can I tag a writer or Substack publication in a post?

With the Mentions feature, you can tag a writer or Substack publication in your post. When a reader hovers over a mention, the writer's profile card or a publication card will appear. 


How do I insert a mention in a post?

On a draft post, enter "@" and start typing out the writer's name or publication name. Click on one of the choices presented.


Note: If a writer's name doesn't appear when you @- mention them in a post, it's possible that either you've spelled their name incorrectly or they've opted-out of having their Substack profile appear in a post.

If you’re mentioned by another writer, you'll see a notification in the Activity bell on the top right corner next to your Profile icon.

How to I disable being mentioned in a post?

To opt-out of being mentioned in another writer's post, head to your account Settings page.


Scroll to the Privacy section and click the toggle off next to "Mentions".
