    Hi Brendan and the rest of the community,

    Could someone suggest a simple script for creating a hashtag out of a blog keyword?

    I have a file that is connected to my social media file planner. The purpose of the script is to automatically write a hashtag from a keyword. Both will appear in the editorial theme file which I will then copy and paste into wherever they belong. The keyword would be copied into Yoast for my WordPress blog , the hashtag would be copied into Instagram,Twitter or Facebook.

    i.e. Keyword = Mannheim; The result of the script should be #Mannheim

    I realize I could just use copy and paste from the keyword line in the file into the hashtag line. But it would be timesaving to automate that. Unfortunately I don’t know how to write scripts.

    Would somebody help me, please? Thanks.

    Hi Kimberly,

    You can also do something like this with a Calculation field or a Script field. It’s up to you.

    But in a Calculation field, the formula would simply be:

    "#" + Keyword

    Set the formula to return Text.

    Then in your Calculation field you’ll get #Keyword as the result, where the value of Keyword is whatever is in the Keyword field.

    Give that a try and if you’d prefer a script, let me know.

    Thanks, Brendan. The simplest way to Rome is the best. It worked after I realized I had to put the hashtag symbol between quotation marks. (Your answer came in through my eMail program and my brain functions haven’t finished their coffee yet).

    Have a great weekend.
