I have a regex that extracts hashtags from a text. In my workflow I have “hashtags (data is set as a list) add input value:extract with regex”.
But the problem is that while it extracts #word and multiple #words if there are several, it adds them to the hashtag list as 1 item. When I look up how many items in the list, it says 1 even when there are mutliple hashtags in the text itself. I need a way for each #word to be added to the hashtag list as an individual item. So if there are 3 #words then there are 3 items in the list.
Is there a way to do this?
Have you tried using add list, or set list, instead of add?
yes, unfortunately an issue comes up saying that it should be a list but currently is a text.
I have been trying to figure this out all day.
I have a thing called a post, with a field called “post text” and “hashtag” (hashtag is a list of texts).
Post text= input value
Hashtag= input value:extract with regex (regex extracts hashtags)
When I look at the app data, if a user posts: #word #word #word,
the field for hashtag lists #word, #word, #word
so far so good, but when i try a repeating group or i try to use dynamic text to display the first item of the hashtag, it lists #word #word #word as 1 item in the list. They are grouped as 1 entry.
I need a way to make them separate items in the list of hashtags so that i could have text that displays the 1st item, 2nd item, etc.
This might get you going in the right direction…
EDIT2: Screenshot updated with better regex pattern:
It takes the value of an input, extracts hashtags, and then adds all the hashtags (as a list) to a hashtag_list field (which is a list of texts)
Mind you, I haven’t tested the regex string rigorously, but it seems to handle the easy stuff.
EDIT: The regex is wrong. I’ll find one that works and update.
EDIT2: I think this is working: (^|\s)(#[a-z\d-]+)
it still seems to only group the whole list of words as technically one item, which is the problem i am having.
Maybe if you take a look at the actual app I made: https://bubble.io/page?type=page&name=hashtags&id=toh-samples&tab=tabs-1
If yours is still putting everything into one item, post up some screenshots or a link the the app, and I’m sure the issue can be found.
