Bug Description

Binary package hint: gwibber


An inconsistency in Gwibber's formatting wherein #hashtags and @replies are turned into links, in its display of streams, but !community mentions are not.


1. Use Gwibber to post a status update on which includes the !tag of a community you belong to. !aliases work for purposes of bugtesting also ( allows community administrators to assign multiple aliases to !community names).
2. Note that while @replies and #hashtags are automatically turned into links in your stream, the !community name is not.


Everything that would be a link on the web app itself will be a link in Gwibber.

Right : Hashtags # work very well on identica and twitter with search tab. But on identica, there is also an option for groups :

Name of group has a ! before. Example : if you subscribe to Ubuntu group, when someone post a message with !Ubuntu, you will receive it even if you are not following his timeline.

This part works well in Gwibber, I receive all the messages from the groups I have joined.

But contrary to the #hashtags, !groups are not clickable links and do not allow to do a search in identica groups.

According support, there is no group search api end point right now

So, question is : if a word has a "!" just before it without space between them (like !gwibber), is it possible to make it as link and redirect to :

If group does not exist, this will display an error message "Not found"

If yes, it would allow to subscribe easily to a group on identica web page.
