** IMPORTANT **
This plugin has been updated for BuddyPress 1.5.1
This plugin will convert #hashtags references to a link (activity search page) posted to the activity stream
Works on the same filters as the @atusername mention filter (see Extra Configuration if you want to enable this on blog/comments activity) – this will convert anything with a leading #
Warning: This plugin converts #hashtags prior to database insert/update. Uninstalling this plugin will not remove #hashtags links from the activity content.
Please note: accepted pattern is:
[#]([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+) – all linked hashtags will have a css a.hashtag – currently does not support unicode.
Also works with
- BuddyPress Edit Activity Stream plugin 0.3.0 or greater
- BuddyPress Activity Stream Ajax Notifier plugin
- Author’s Site
- BuddyPress Activity Stream Hashtags – About Page
- BuddyPress and bbPress Developer Hook and Filter API Reference
- Upload the full directory into your wp-content/plugins directory
- Activate the plugin at the plugin administration page
- What pattern is matched?
The regex looks for /#/ within the content and will proceed to replace anything matching /(^|\s|\b)#myhashtag/
- Can this be enabled with other content?
Possible – try applying the filter
See extra configuration
- Why convert #hashtags into links before the database save?
The trick with activity search_terms (which is used for @atmentions) is the ending since BuddyPress’s sql for searching is %%term%% so #child would match #children
- What url is used?
you may define a slug for hashtags via the admin settings page
