WP Glossary Hover

When hovering over a word or phrase show the user created definition.

WP Glossary Hover adds helpful tooltips to user defined glossary terms. Terms are highlighted and when hovered over shows the term definition.


  • Only highlight first occurrence of term.
  • Specify if glossary terms are case sensitive.
  • Enable by post type, i.e. specify if posts, pages, etc. are parsed for terms.
  • Protect certain html tags, e.g. headers, links, quotes, etc., from being parsed for terms.
  • Uses jQuery UI Tooltips, with ability to custom various settings and themes.
  • Style highlighted terms, i.e. change color and underline style.
