Been playing around with my local MediaWiki. Since I couldn’t find an extension to use tags for Categories, I created my own one. You can find the code on my Github page.
Inspired by the plugin by Jeroen de Dauw
It’s easy to install.
- Download the files from GitHub
- Put them in a folder called Hashtags in the Extensions folder of your MediaWiki
- add the following to your Localsettings.php
require_once( “$IP/extensions/Hastags/Hastags.php” );
Now when you save your articles it will work for you
#Hastag to [[Category:Hastag]].
@Article to [[Article]]
&file to [[File:file]]
