How can you find pages which have been allocated the hashtag template? – just by linking to them or by putting them into the guidance?
It’s just that it would be good to be able to search by hashtag i.e. create a page with e.g. hashtag ‘recruitment’for recruitment cards to display and then put #recruitment into the search facility and the page would come up.
Does anyone know if this functionality is possible?
Pages that use the hashtags template will be indexed as usual, so the title, content area, keywords and excerpt will show up in search results.
However, pages that use the hashtags template do not replace the core “tag” template used in the theme. So even if you create a hashtags page using the “recruitment” tag, there will still be a standard tag page such as intranet.acme.co.uk/tag/recruitment which will provide listings by post type e.g. all news stories tagged recruitment, all events tagged recruitment…
The hashtags template is best suited to display posts that have a featured image, such as news and blog posts.
