Support » Plugin: HashBuddy » HashBuddy is wrongly converting apostrophes to hashtag links!

  • Hey @modemlooper,

    I have recently seen that your HashBuddy plugin has been automatically converting apostrophes to hashtag links in my blog posts and forum topics (and of course the buddypress activity stream) and it is a big issue.

    I have had to deactivate this plugin (once I deactivated it all was fine) and use another one until that can be fixed. Amongst all you do could you please look into this and see if it is a simple error for you to fix and how long before an update with this fixed can be out?

    I think this is a great plugin but I am not sure why this error is appearing.

    I am using the latest version of this plugin, BuddyPress, WordPress, bbPress and a few other plugins.

  • Oh, and I should mention that I am using WordPress Multisite. Although, that shouldn’t make much of a difference.

    known issue will be fixed.

    Hi @modemlooper!
    First, thanks for developing this much needed plugin, especially since the old ‘Buddypress activity stream hashtags’ plugin has been abandoned.

    This is a great plugin that is working out of the box however, I’m facing the same issue as described above by @smartsite4u

    I can see you know about the issue and will be fixing it. Can you please give me a rough ideas as to when this can be fixed? Knowing the timeline will really help me.


    Thanks alot @modemlooper, I will be on the lookout for the next update.

    Should be fixed in version 1.5.1

    Please test and let me know if you have issues and if a certain character breaks the hashtag.
