This mod was the idea of "zethon" another vBulletin.org coder who asked me to code this.

VB 4 version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=271543

The purpose of this mod is to make it easier for users to tag threads with relevant keywords. Although VB 3.8 allows for thread tags very few people will take the time to properly tag a thread. They have to remember to go to another box and add keywords, separate them by commas, and only then finally submit the thread or post.

But if you give people an easier way to tag threads they will use the feature much more. One of the more common ways of tagging keywords is "hash" tagging, that is preceding the word with a "hash" or "number-sign" (#example #keywords).

This has become popular with Twitter and for many people it is already second nature so many people will naturally jump right in to this new tagging method.

Version 1.2: Added option to look for new tags on post edits.
Version 1.1: Added options for multi-word tags and tags in titles.
Version 1.0: Initial Release

A sample post:

Hello everyone. I just got back from #Sedona, #Arizona. The weather was great. I went #hiking and #4x4ing. We were in Pink #Jeeps. The next day we drove back to #Phoenix and flew home.
In the mod settings you can set the maximum number of tags allowed in the first post and the maximum number of tags allowed in each additional post, if any. You must already have thread tagging options enabled on your forum. If someone attempts to tag a word that is not long enough per your tagging options it will simply be ignored.

Tested With vBulletin 3.8.7 and should work with earlier versions.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

Upgrade is just import the xml file, allow-overwrite set to YES. Once installed go to the options to set the new settings.
Got it. Installed. Works!

You can "Like" posts right now... . There are no plans for a Thanks mod as far as I know.

Going to try this one as it is a very popular item on twitter, others on my site are already using the tags even though there is currently no mod installed.

You must uninstall the VB3 version before installing the VB4 version on VB4.

Hi BirdOPrey5, do you think it is possible to hide the hashtags when the post is displayed and only display them when the post is being edited/created to avoid interfering with the readability of the post?

Possible, yes, but hasn't been coded yet.

Don't know how it affects auto-tagging, never used it- but my guess is there is no conflict.
