Add a link to a mentioned tag when posting via mail


(Robert) #1

Hello,

so far, when you reply per mail :e-mail: and precede words with the #, they will be converted to links like #feature if it is a category, but this does not work for (already existing) tags.

It would be nice, if an algorithm would check, if such a hashed word is not a category, if is a #tag and link it in case accordingly.

Have you tried tagging tags like #pr-welcome

#pr-welcome::tag

When you add a tag in the composer it includes the ::tag.


Starting a line with a tag creates a headline instead of a tag

That is good to know, but I guess most people are unaware of that suffix requirement. It is not like tags work on Facebook, Twitter or the Discourse webinterface.
