    Okay Sister Destee, so that I can play with this, please explain the below, which was copied from the top of the above link page:


    Trending Hash Tags
    Below are the 25 most recent hashtags used


    How was this determined? Who applied the hashtag?
    All of this is new to me, I need some help, first:)


    Peace In,

    Thank you Sister Destee.

    Clyde C Coger Jr ... Chevron Dove ... Family

    Notice when I typed ... #destee ... and ... #share ... above ... it turned into a link.

    That process and link ... is the hashtag.

    It turns into ... Trending hashtags ... and shows up in the side bar (image below).

    Adding the # symbol before a word ... makes it a hashtag ... with special Trending ability.

    When i posted those #hashtags, they became Trending and were added to the sidebar for easy access.


    [​IMG]


    You can click the Trending hashtags in the side bar and go to those posts (surrounding the #hashtags topic).

    How To Do It


    If you type ... #topic ... (making the word topic an actual topic of course) ... it will do the same for you.

    This works in forum and profile posts.

    Okay ... as i learn more i will share more.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I would like the #hashtags to be substantive - like Rule #9 requires for thread titles.

    Of course all other rules apply as well : https://destee.com/rules

    I see room for abuse ... so ... we will be learning together how this is going to work.

    #hashtags show up on our home page ... most every page really ... which raises the stakes.

    Play nice and i will update as needed.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    Not anything can become a hashtag ... banned words ... will still be banned.

    Example ... #****
