wp-hashtagger

Description

This Plugin allows you to use #hashtags, @usernames and $cashtags in your posts

Usage

Simply use #hashtags, @usernames (if activated) and $cashtags (if activated) in your posts and pages (if activated). Activate plugin, config it and forget.

#wphashtags

This plugin uses the WordPress Tag system to field your post under the desired tags. When saving a post each #hashtag is added as a “normal” tag (without leading hash) to the post, so it is fully compatible with existing tags. When showing a post all #wphashtags are automatically converted to links (if activated) leading to the corresponding tag archive page (link creating can be disabled to use this plugin only for automated tag creation). It is not necessary to generally adapt existing posts, because their tags stay unchanged. But keep in mind that on saving a post / custom post all existing tags are removed and replaced by the tags found in your post (this behavior is configurable)!

@usernames

The usage of @usernames can be activated optionally. @usernames can link either to the Users Profile Page or to the Users Website. If the username does not exist the text remains unchanged and no link is created. Optionally @nicknames can be used instead of @usernames. This is recommended to enhance security (read more). Although using @nicknames is the better option, the default is @usernames for compatibility to Plugin versions prior 2.1.

$cashtags

The usage of $cashtags can be activated optionally. $cashtags link to the concerning stock symbol at MarketWatch, Google Finance or Yahoo Finance. Examples: GOOG on MarketWatch, GOOG on Google Finance, GOOG on Yahoo Finance. Notice: stock symbols can not be validated, using a invalid stock symbol will cause an not found error on the target site.

How to use

Just type anywhere in a post

#wphashtag
This adds “hashtag” as tag to the current post and on links to tag archive page for “hashtag” when showing the post. And show number of all post with relatded #hastag like #hastag(number).

##hashtag
Use duplicate ##hashes to tell the plugin that this word should not be converted into a tag. Duplicate hashes are replaced by a single hash when showing the post.

@username
