Name Directory

This plugin provides a name directory (glossary) with a lot of options. It can be embedded with a simple shortcode and can have multiple directories.

This plugin adds name/term directories to your WordPress installation. They are like glossaries. The output on your website is like a glossary/index. I recommend you to take a look at the screenshots, they illustrate more that words.

The Name Directory plugin was orginally developed for ParkietenVilla.nl to show a directory of names to name your budgies.

A name directory is a directory that contains entries with the following properties:

  • name
  • description
  • submitter

Every directory can be embedded with a very simple shortcode which you can past in your own pages and posts. Every directory has a few configuration options that customize the layout and functionality of the directory:

  • Show/Hide title
  • Show/Hide description
  • Show/Hide suggestion form
  • Show/Hide submitter name
  • Show/Hide search function
  • Show/Hide a horizontal rule between the entries
  • Show/Hide all entries if a user has not chosen a letter from the index
  • Choose if it has to be presented in 1, 2, 3 or 4 columns

The administration view of this plugin has the familiar look and feel of (the rest of) the WordPress Administration panel. I have done my best to enable some AJAX-features in the administration panel, so you can work efficiently while adding new entries.
