WordPress Hashtags

Description

WP Hashtags is a WordPress Hashtags plugin which allows you to easily fetch hashtags and parse them as links in post content, title, widget content and title, bbPress topics/replies, and buddyPress acitivity streams and updates. Comes with a useful shortcode you can use for parsing hashtags.

Features

Basically you add the feature to turn a hash plain text into a link. So far with the initial release, you can recognize and parse hashtags in:

  • Post title
  • Post content
  • Widget title
  • Widget content
  • Comment text
  • bbPress topics
  • bbPress replies
  • BuddyPress activity streams and status updates
  • Shortcodes

    As an additional feature, we support shortcodes, and you can use [wp-hashtag] to parse a hashtag. An example use is [wp-hashtag]#WordPress[/wp-hashtag], give it a try!

    For support topics please use the plugin’s dedicated support forum here on WordPress. Otherwise if you want to let us know anything, you can drop us few lines through our contact page.

    Highly Customizable

    Works wonderfully, picks up just the hashtag, not any extra characters. Default behavior searches Twitter for hashtag, but super-easy to change it to search my site by changing the Hashtag URL in settings to “http://example.com/?s=%23[hashtag]”.

    Excellent Plugin

    This plugin was just what i needed for converting plain text Hashtags into real links. Works perfectly for me.

    Works great

    Works with any theme, light plugin for parsing hashtags from plain text into links!
