[SOLVED] Add hashtag to titles

I’d like to add hashtags to specific terms in my article titles.

Example: Buy apples from New York --> Buy #apples today from #NewYork

Example2: New shipment of oranges from Florida --> New #shipment of #oranges from #Florida.

I’ve tried to do this as follows:

{{range .Pages}}
{{if in .Title "apples"}}
{{replace .Title "apples" "#apples"}}
{{else if in .Title "New York"}}
{{replace .Title "New York" "#NewYork"}}

The problem with this approach is that it won’t replace multiple words in a title and the amount of conditionals needed is huge. I have a list of about 20 terms that need a hashtag. Any ideas how I can improve upon this?

The only better approach I can think of would be to use dict with the terms you need to have a hashtag and then create a variable with scratch that is for these terms in your titles.

See this topic to get an idea of how you may be able to pull this off.

With the help of your code I got it to work. Thank you!

For someone else stumbling across this thread, it would be nice if you can show your final solution. Thanks :slight_smile:

Sure thing.

{{$hashtags := (dict "Apple" "#Apple" "New York" "#NewYork")}}
{{range .Pages}}
{{$.Scratch.Set "hashtagTitle" .Title}}
{{range $k, $v := $hashtags}}
{{$.Scratch.Set "hashtagTitle" (replace ($.Scratch.Get "hashtagTitle") $k $v)}}
{{$.Scratch.Get "hashtagTitle"}}
