What characters can a hashtag include?
The hashtag detection follows the rules for hashtags on Twitter, Facebook and Google+. The minimum length for a hashtag is 2 characters. A hashtag must not start with a number (this can be changed optionally). A hashtag not only ends at a space but also at punctuation marks and other special characters. A hashtag may contain underscores.
Does this also work for pages?
Yes and No. Yes – the plugin can add the tags also for pages. No – WordPress does not show the tags section for pages and also pages are not listed on tag archives.
This plugin does not change this behavior of WordPress because there already exist several plugins that add the tag functionality for pages. Please use one of them if you want to tag your pages.
How to change the Tag base?
The Tag base for the Tag Archive Page URL (e.g. example.com/tag/anytag) can be set on the ‘Permalink Settings’ page under ‘Tag base’ in your WP admin.
Where does @username link to?
This can be set on hashtagger Settings Page. @username links can either link to the Users Profile Page or to the Users Webiste (Users Profile Page if no Webpage is set). When linking to Users Website the link can be opened in a new window if desired.
Why should I use @nicknames instead of @usernames
This is important to enhance WordPress security. Please read this article.
