Simply the best
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is a professional tool and by far the best encyclopedia/glossary/wiki plugin you can get! Features like automatically generated term links, auto-completing search widget, the dynamic letter navigation, the individual encyclopedia naming and so much more convinced me to buy the Pro Version and I'm really happy with it! It's such a fun to see my encyclopedia growing!

Excellent plugin proividing inline definition hover and linking
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is a superb plugin which allows you to set up terms in a glossary or encyclopaedia and then automatically generates links within the post on the term or word as a hover (showing a brief definition or excerpt) along with a link to a more in-depth description.
In the case of one of our sites this has saved hours of adding explanatory footnotes on a post-by-post basis. The plugin delivers the same result much more elegantly.
Regrettably this plugin has suffered occasionally in its ratings from the usual freeloaders who never want to pay for anything.
True the free version only permits 5 terms but that should be sufficient to work out if it does what you want it to. If you like its features you can then decide if you want to buy the pro version which is not restricted. The pro-version is not expensive and if you don't want it don't buy it but don't slag the developer off for producing something that some of us need and are willing to pay for.

Little helpers guide you trough glossary content
By , for WP 3.8.1

Words, existing as glossary terms, will be linked on pages, posts and other content types automatically when activated in the plugin settings. That's a very cool feature. I also like the multilevel syllable navigation very much.

4 stars
Much functionality - less items
By , for WP 3.8.1

Best glossary plugin I could find here. I have to say that the functionality is quite good: letter navigation, search panel, simple entry management to give some examples. But it's too bad that only 5 items can be created -> One star deduction

Do not download
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is a scam, plain and simple. This plugin barely works and only exists to trick people into thinking they need the pro version. The reviews for that are as bad as the reviews for this, avoid this publisher like the plague!

No support for Pro Version
By , for WP 3.8

First I join the other people saying that having only 5 terms for the regular/free version is a (bad) joke.
I have paid for the Pro Version. Some trivial features were not available (like display the excerpt on mouse-over instad of repeating the term). Request/question per email have not been answered. This plugin is a no go.

Free *Lite version useless
By , for WP 3.8

This is mere listing for their pro version of the plugin. This free lite version is just wastage of time. Even description, screenshots and features are all misleading for Lite version. Must be against the norms of WordPress Plugin directory.

Should be removed from "free" repository
By ,

As others have noted, this plugin really pushes the limits by calling itself "free". It's not like anyone can really use the lite version on a site. The developer should either rethink what is being offered, or WP should disallow this in their plug-in repository.
