I'd like to allow a
#hashtag to be owned by or attributed to the person that first used it on my site. By default in Studio -> Channels, "Default author for automatically created channels" was not set. In that configuration, I had to manually create channels/hashtags to show in page/channels-home. Today I set up an Organization so that I could populate the "Default author for automatically created channels" with that Org's name in hopes that that would get the system to start collecting automatically hashtags and adding them to page/channels-home. Is that the correct way to get the system to automatically collect hashtags when people use new ones? Will those new hashtags be attributed to the authors of those new hashtags?
Thanks in advance for any info on this mechanism!
I have a set of tests that show that
#channels / #hashtags work (at least after) assigning a "Default author for automatically created channels," but maybe even before that (untested). The takeaway is: if you're busy manually creating #channels / #hashtags, then it is possible you are assuming they are not being added to the #channels page automatically; and also it might be required that you create an #Org (alternative account) and then assign it as "default author" in the #channels app. God only knows how it really works because there's really no solid #documentation for most of this, but I suggest creating a second catch-all account (an Org), and then assign it as "Default author for automatically created channels" in the #channels app. After that, creating NEW #hashtags should show up automatically on the #channels page.
