BuddyPress Activity Stream Hashtags

Description

** 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

  2. Activate the plugin at the plugin administration page

FAQ

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 bp_activity_hashtags_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
