moderated Hashtag search

Easy for filter messages


 

Regarding Benoît Dumeaux's suggestion to add a hashtag search button to the top of the messages page:

This would need to be optional for groups that don't want to use hashtags. Having it show on a page would just encourage people to use it, which some groups don't want.

It seems that making the use of hashtags an option would trigger a whole bunch of changes to both the display and the function. It would be more complicated, and switching from no hashtags to hashtag used might be an unreversable change.

You can already do this by going to the Hashtags item on the left menu, then choosing the hashtag you're interested in.

No Duane, the visibility and ease of selection of hashtags are not at all the same on groups.io.
When you use search function you don't show the tags selection.

You can always search by hashtag, as long as you know what they are, by entering them in the search box.  If you only have a few hashtags, that should be easy enough.  I wouldn't want anything that would put all the hashtags on the screen since some groups have dozens.  There have been numerous requests to add filters in the search box, which may all come at the same time.  Maybe a drop down box of hashtags could be added there.  In the meantime, it seems simple to me to filter by hashtag.
