I can use hashtags in Newsfeeds and Community Sites. When I click on a hashtag within the Newsfeed I get to an overview page where I see all previous usages of this hashtag. This is all fine.
However, when I use a hashtag in a Community Site I also get re-directed to an overview page but no previous posts/conversations show up.
While looking at the MSDN forum I found this:
I called Microsoft support and they confirmed that "Hashtag Profile" only shows Related conversations that originated on user's Mysites newsfeed. They do not show related conversations from Community site discussions. Original Post
My two part question:
- Is this true or is this a bug? Has anyone ever gotten a community Site working to show previous usages of hashtags?
- If displaying the previous usages of a hashtag within a community site is not supported why use hashtags within a community at all? What is the point? What am I missing?
Thanks in advance!
