    Just installed WP glossary on my simple test site.

    All my glossary terms are broken and I get a 'page not found error'

    [glossary_term_list] Generates a list of titles but no content

    I guess there was a clash with an existing plugin. I stripped everything out and got WP glossary working. I'll try it on my main site soon

    Let me know if it turns out to be an error with wp-glossary plugin (rather than with the other). In a perfect world, the two should be able to live together?

    Experiencing a similar issue.
    My glossary page containing the [glossary_term_list] shortcode has it's permalink modified.

    In my example:
    I label the page 'glossary of terms'.
    My permalink is glossary-of-terms
    I add my SEO information, keyword, meta description, title, etc.
    I publish.
    -
    Result:
    SEO data is gone.
    Permalink still in place
    I make corrections & edits to the page and update
    -
    Result:
    Permalink is transforemd
    from '/glossary-of-terms' to '/term1-#' where the # is the # of created pages that have the glossary short code)', in this case #4, i.e. '/term1-4'

    Thoughts?

    I've found this occurs on any page where I'm using [glossary] shortcodes.

    The permalink changes and the SEO settings are voided when within the post content I use the plugin referencing feature.

    [glossary term='term'] terms [/glossary]

    This changes the permalink to /'term-#' where the # is the next available page with that name.

    hi, i've been using wp-glossary and when used with other plugins like slideshows that use the # too in the link creation it kinda conflicts with them.

    so i asked a buddy to help out and he came up with a solution, by changing the wp-glossary.js file like this:

    before
    line 39: if( myAlpha.length )
    after:
    line 39: if( myAlpha && myAlpha.length )

    so far it's still functional and there's no more conflicts.

    The A to Z list of my glossary terms displays correctly, but when I click on a term, I get the 404 Not Found error message: "You tried going to ..., and it doesn't exist. All is not lost! You can search for what you're looking for."

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
