What is a hashtag?
A topic with a#(gate) for it. For example, I use #yoorshelp for all my manuals on Yoors.
Why would you use hashtags?
For (increasing) the discoverability of posts.
Because if someone:
on a hashtag, you will see any other posts about it. So you post a lot about a particular topic, your posts (most likely) will also be found!
searches on the topic too!
Oh, by the way... To save a post you have to use at least one hashtag.
Where can you place hashtags?
In a post and in a comment.
How many can you place?
An unlimited number!!
This depends on the post where you place the hashtag (s).
For example, for posts about:
- Crafts: #creative#diy#paper#recycle #basket
- Recipes: #recipe#food#idea#desert#soup#salad
And in addition also the (main) ingredients. An example. If someone is looking for a recipe with Brussels sprouts, it is useful if the hashtag #sprouts is there, with every recipe with it, next to it.
Please check your posts to add hashtags. Can't you edit a post anymore? Then put them in a reaction.

Good to know:
From the first used hashtag in a post, related posts are shown below.
Also, the first used hashtag appears in the url. If you change a hashtag afterwards, you will still find the first used in the url.
