Help: How to use Hashtags and @username in forums? [#]
RxPG forums now support the use of hashtags (which would redirect to topic collections on that tag) and mentions of members' names after @ tag (which would lead to their profiles).

Examples of HASHTAGS (#)
#medicine
#aipge
#2010
#plab
#hernia

To use hashtags, just put hash (#) in front of any word and it would automatically be active

Examples of REPLIES (@)

@rxpg_team
@bgm
@vitamin_k

In simple words, putting # before any word would convert that word into a link that leads to all topics in the forums on that word.

Same way, putting @ before any member's name would automatically change that name into a link to their user profile.

Please leave any feedback or bug reports on these features here.

..or to some other person's homepage.....
rather than the one we are referring to....

ex. check out @Binu, @Asha ma'm....
These are not BGM/ Asha ma'm's homepage...
but other users who are no longer active..!!

I found "another" Sara too..!! icon_eek.gif
Check this out.. @Sara.. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

So, u got to type the correct &complete nick of the member...
for the link to re-direct you to the same members homepage..!!

Inspired by this observation...
i did a bit of hit &try with "words" as "tags"...
and by putting # as prefix to see the results....

#Problem
#Sunshine icon_biggrin.gif
#Swayamvar icon_exclaim.gif
#Mogalal icon_lol.gif
#blog

Some links did yield fruitful results..
viz. #blog, #smile, #birthday

but others did not...
i was just trying to find a convenient way to put links...
to threads having common "tags"....!!

Anywyz, more of the #/@ exploration is on...
will give u more feedbacks.....

thanks sara icon_biggrin.gif u are right! I agree we need to type the correct nickname. I just typed rashmila and EUREKA !! icon_biggrin.gif i found the homepage of my 1st rxpg account! 6th feb 2007 was the date when i got this site through search. That was when i had just started with 6th semester. Didnt get the account confirmation mail from the team. So opened another account about a month later in march 2007 with nickname @rmh. Contacted the team many times in this regard... Checked those spam n junk mails.. But didnt get that confirmation mail icon_sad.gif yes i agree the last log in year is wrong.... May be a technical error! But this @rashmila is a discovery for me because i found my account after 4 years icon_biggrin.gif

Hello Team...
Just wish to point out one fact to u...
when i typed #Dermatology to refer a member...
to the Dermatology Career forum...
icon_arrow.gif
Only RxPG members can see links here! Register or Login!


Instead, it redirects to Dermatology MCQ bank forum..
icon_arrow.gif
Only RxPG members can see links here! Register or Login!


Is there any way to use these hash tags to "select"...
the "specific" forum among "similar" ones..?????

Another example would be Ophthalmology - Career & Ophthalmology MCQ bank forums.
Hope to hear from u regarding this..!

This is because the old system of tags is interfering with the new one. We are gradually phasing out the old one.

This bug has now been fixed.

The system now would be very strict with hastags, so any dots/comma after a hashtag won't trigger a replacement.

Hello Team..
i have been using the "hashtag" to search for relevant threads...
having a tag/ keyword of my choice...
ex. #RxPG , #features , #blog etc.
It enlists all relevant threads across forums with "common" tags..

Today, i was searching for a particular thread...
Suggest new features for RxPG
but the thread seems to have vanished.....
its neither in the help/ newbie forum nor in Offbeat...
i don't even remember the thread author's name.......

moreover, i tried various "tags" viz #features , #suggest , #new , #RxPG
but none could trace that thread....
is there any other way to "search relevant threads"...??
