I love it but .... (attention to Spanish)
By , for WP 3.9.2

Yes, I love this plugin but has a BIG FAIL for all those Spanish speakers.

The GREAT FAILURE is not accepting words that start with a vowel that has accent. For example, if I want to put a term that is "Ébola" (in Spanish has an accent) isn´t reflected in the "e" position of alphabet. So I have to create another "word" in the alphabet to be "é". And it isn´t another word!! Needless to say, for the Spanish alphabet that's a bummer !!!!

And considering that I´ve purchased 4 plugins for 4 blogs (total $ 160) .... I think these details should have much more in mind.

Uninstall Incomplete

Don't use CM Tooltip Glossary on a live site if you're only testing with dummy data or on any site if you expect an uninstall to remove plugin files and data from the database.

CM Tooltip Glossary will NOT remove the data from the database.

This could be a problem if you're moving from test to live data or if you have a very large glossary and decide to uninstall the plugin because the data in the MySql database will not be removed.

I must admit, I thought it was standard practice that all good plugins cleaned up after themselves. Apparantly not in the case of CM Tooltip Glossary.

Excellent Functionality and Top Notch Support
By , for WP 3.9.1

Plugin author has been constantly improving and adapting this product to my needs. It has been an integral part of our website providing tool tips of complex medical terms for dog owners. We couldn't help owners as well as we do without it.

The many updates have been extensive and recently, at my request, the plugin is now compatible with bbPress forums! This was critical to helping owners with sick dogs.

I did need to spend some time working with settings, but those detailed settings allowed me to really fine tune how this looks on our website. I still have to look into the linking with dictionaries!

I really like how this integrates with my SEO plugin. This draws people into the site who search this terminology in google.

I appreciate the author's sensitivity that we may not want this on every page and there are several settings to fine tune this.

The entry is so easy that other moderators can help make entries.

The applications for this as a training and educational tool are extensive. I can also use photos in the tooltips.

Buying the upgrade is really worth the support you receive.

Great plugin with awesome support
By , for WP 3.8.1

The greatest value of this plugin is (except for it's powerful features) that it's supported and developed almost on a daily basis.

Super handy!
By , for WP 3.8.1

We were able to use the plugin to construct a glossary from spreadsheet data we have. The instructions provided in the settings page to properly produce comma-quote delimited CSV were very helpful as well.

My only wish was that it was a bit more clear in that you have to manually add the glossary taxonomy/categories first, note down the categoryID, and integrate that to your spreadsheet data before importing. In other words, a more beginner/non-developer friendly way of explaining the process.

Otherwise, great plugin with rapid support response time!

While there's a few features I'd like to see, this is one heck of a good plugin. We cranked out 281 new and very useful pages in our site in a matter of a couple of hours start to finish. Two thumbs up and five stars.

No way to display images
By , for WP 3.8

Even though I insert a photo in the glossary page, it doesn't show the image on the tooltip - it only shows the text.

Excellent glossary, excellent support
By , for WP 3.6.1

This plugin, even the free version, adds a real "wow" factor to any website with a lot of specialized vocabulary. It's amazing and refreshingly simple to just hover to get the definition.

We upgraded to the Pro version to gain the synonym and plural functionality. Support from the developer, David, has been excellent.
