Glossary builder (2 posts)

    I am working on a site which will include multiple glossaries. I had toyed around with Glossword (http://glossword.info). However, their site has been down for more than six months now I think.

    I wonder if I can use WordPress for this purpose. The problem can be solved if I am able to display all items by Title rather than by date. I would sure this would be possible bu changing the sort order in one of teh core files. And since I am not a coder by profession I have been at my wit's end trying to figure out what line to change and where. I have opened most of the core files, but could not figure out what to do.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I'm using WordPress to do this for a while now. =) I'm using a few hacks and plugins to sort everything and display it properly in separate categories.... but it works pretty well.

    The major one was a hack to display everything in alphabetical order is done to wp-includes/classes.php on line 462.

    // Alphabetical hack for categories
    if ($whichcat)
    {
    $q['orderby'] = 'title';
    $q['order'] = 'ASC';
    }

    I'm also using the custom posts per page plugin so I get all defs on just one page and Opt-In Front page, so I can have news and updates on my index page.
