# Hashtagger wordpress plugin #

When posting to your wordpress website in any form just add a #hashtag

 

Description

Use #hashtags, @usernames and $cashtags in your posts.

See also Plugin Homepage and Plugin Doc

NEW IN VERSION 3.5

hashtagger now optionally allows to only generate tags from #hashtags without showing links.

#HASHTAGS

This plugin uses the WordPress Tag system to field your post under the desired tags. When saving a post each #hashtag is added as a “normal” tag (without leading hash) to the post, so it is fully compatible with existing tags.

When showing a post all #hashtags are automatically converted to links leading to the corresponding tag archive page. Creating links can be disabled to use this plugin only for automatic tag creation.

Caution: It is not necessary to generally adapt existing posts, because their tags stay unchanged. But keep in mind that on saving a post all existing tas are removed and replaced by the tags found in your post! This behavior can be changed in the Plugin Settings Area.

@USERNAMES

The usage of @usernames can be activated optionally. @usernames can link either to the Users Profile Page or to the Users Website. If the username does not exist the text remains unchanged and no link is created.

Optionally @nicknames can be used instead of @usernames. This is recommended to enhance security (read more). Although using @nicknames is the better option, the default is @usernames for compatibility to Plugin versions prior 2.1.

$CASHTAGS

The usage of $cashtags can be activated optionally. $cashtags link to the concerning stock symbol at MarketWatch, Google Finance or Yahoo Finance.

Examples:

Notice: stock symbols can not be validated. Using a invalid stock symbol may cause an error on the target site.

USAGE

Just type anywhere in a post

  • #hashtag – This adds “hashtag” as tag to the current post and on links to tag archive page for “hashtag” when showing the post.
  • #hashtag – Use #hashtag to only link to a tag archive page without adding “hashtag” as tag to the post. When showing the post the link is showed as “#hashtag” (without “+”). If the tag does not exist the text remains unchanged and no link is created.
  • #hashtag – Use duplicate #hashes to tell the plugin that this word should not be converted into a tag. Duplicate hashes are replaced by a single hash when showing the post.
  • @username – This creates a link either to the Profile Page or the Website of User “username” (@username feature has to be activated).
  • @username – Use @username to avoid link creation. When showing the post this is displayed as “@username” without link (@username feature has to be activated).
  • $cashtag – This creates a link to the concerning stock symbol at MarketWatch, Google Finance or Yahoo Finance ($cashtag feature has to be activated).
  • $$chashtag – Use $$cashtag to avoid link creation. When showing the post this is displayed as “$cashtag” without link ($cashtag feature has to be activated).

WORDPRESS SECURITY

It is highly recommended to use @nicknames instead of @usernames!Please read this article!

POST TYPES AND SECTION TYPES

In the plugins Settings you can define where #hashtags and @usernames should be processed. It is possible to use them on Posts, on Pages and on Custom Post Types within Content, Title and Excerpt. Activate only the Post Types and Section Types you want to be processed to avoid unnecessary processing for best performance.

FORMATTING LINKS

Additional CSS Class(es) to add to the #hashtag and @username links can be configured on the plugins setting page.

DISPLAY OF LINKS IN FRONT END

Optionally all symbols (#, @, $) can be removed from the links generated in front end.

THEME FUNCTION

You can use do_hashtagger( $content ) in your theme files to process #hashtags and @usernames in $content.

Example:

TRANSLATIONS

As of version 3.4 the hashatgger Plugin uses GlotPress – the wordpress.org Translation System – for translations. Translations can be submitted at translate.wordpress.org.

Translations are highly appreciated. It would be great if you’d support the hashtagger Plugin by adding a new translation or keeping an existing one up to date. If you’re new to GlotPress take a look at the Translator Handbook.

Managing WordPress websites is a horrendous waste of time and energy, and it only gets worse as your business keeps scaling. We found ourselves facing this problem back in 2010, so we decided to come up with a new way to manage multiple WordPress websites efficiently.

ManageWP was bootstrapped by Vladimir Prelovac, a successful WordPress developer, consultant, and the author of the first WordPress development book. By January 2012 ManageWP was officially released, and within a month 100,000 websites were being managed with our service.

Now, our user-base and dedicated team of professionals has grown significantly. After we made our initial idea a reality we decided to improve on it and take it to the next level. We asked you what you thought we needed to improve or change, and sat down to brainstorm how we can make website management even easier and hassle free for you.

This led to a newer version of ManageWP, which we call Orion. Orion was launched on July 12, 2016, and we couldn’tbe prouder. Thanks to you, dear users, we have created a far superior product. Our focus was to make each single feature better in performance and user friendliness.

ljudi-gledaju-na-gore

Exciting things keep happening here at ManageWP. On September 6, 2016, we joined forces with GoDaddy, a company that shares our enthusiasm of product quality and customer satisfaction. This is an amazing milestone for us, and a testament to the dedication we put into making ManageWP the best WordPress management tool in the world. We are aiming to integrate the service into the GoDaddy Pro program. At the same time, ManageWP will continue to run indefinitely as an independent service.

Now we are working hard to automate more of your daily work tasks, and helping you set up the best WordPress maintenance business using our features. We are always open to new suggestions and we encourage our users to speak up and tell us what they need. We still haven’t figured out how to make the day last longer, but we are making strides in saving you time, so you can spend your days doing what you love.

SSL security options

Trycatch also supply security certificates to our online customers

SSL security essential for online shops,See more info below:

 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. When you choose to activate SSL on your web server you will be prompted to complete a number of questions about the identity of your website and your company. Your web server then creates two cryptographic keys – a Private Key and a Public Key.

The Public Key does not need to be secret and is placed into a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) – a data file also containing your details. You should then submit the CSR. During the SSL Certificate application process, the Certification Authority will validate your details and issue an SSL Certificate containing your details and allowing you to use SSL. Your web server will match your issued SSL Certificate to your Private Key. Your web server will then be able to establish an encrypted link between the website and your customer’s web browser.

The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to your customers. Instead their browsers provide them with a key indicator to let them know they are currently protected by an SSL encrypted session – the lock icon in the lower right-hand corner, clicking on the lock icon displays your SSL Certificate and the details about it. All SSL Certificates are issued to either companies or legally accountable individuals.

Typically an SSL Certificate will contain your domain name, your company name, your address, your city, your state and your country. It will also contain the expiration date of the Certificate and details of the Certification Authority responsible for the issuance of the Certificate. When a browser connects to a secure site it will retrieve the site’s SSL Certificate and check that it has not expired, it has been issued by a Certification Authority the browser trusts, and that it is being used by the website for which it has been issued. If it fails on any one of these checks the browser will display a warning to the end user letting them know that the site is not secured by SSL.

Be sure to visit SSLTools.com for some great services and tools to assist in your implementation of ssl on your site or if you want to examine the ssl certificates of other websites.

Paypal Gateway integration on wordpress

paypal-checkoutPaypal is already integrated,installed and supported by wordpress as a integrated function on Woocommerce and or alternatively you can choose from the many other supported free paypal plugins that include donation plugins as well.

With popularity picking up in the SA online shop market to use paypal ,commotion expenses on paypal still a little bit high compared to the other payment gateways like Payfast but in my opinion easier the use for the customers.

Very easy to setup the Paypal gateway on wordpress: Login to wordpess > navigate to woocommerce > setup > checkout and edit the Paypal gateway and enter your email and coupon code from Paypal and you ready to go.
