This plugin is used when there are words, words expressions or sentences to be explained via tooltips in the posts or pages of your wordpress blog.
I have a number of Church websites, and am using it for explanation of specific ecclesiastical terms that not everyone is familiar with. I am looking forward to the development of this plugin to support a little more styling, such as Bold, Italic, and quote marks in the definition.
Numbers of people have advised me that they find the glossary page itself a great resource. Whilst that may be content related, it is the plugin that has made the task of presenting the information easy.
I am using this as a glossary on a website I use for teaching. I use the Prose theme for Genesis. It works pretty well, although it clashed with the Design Settings function of Prose. When I clicked ‘update settings’ all changes simply reset to the default. Once I disabled it I was able to make all my changes and then reactivate it without any problems. It doesn't seem to support Japanese characters which limits its usefulness for me. Nice little plugin though.
I am working on a very technical website and this was a great time-saving solution!
I just installed it and started and using it; so far I like it very much.
Thank you ;-)
PS: Having a glossary item that is at the same time a link is tricky. I haven't yet found a solution for that.
I really like it.
I was looking for a free plugin to create a simple glossary : this pulgin is perfect and easy to use even for a french girl who is a rookie webmaster...
It' s easy to change the look of the tooltip and even more to create a glossary page, new terms etc.
After trying a half dozen other plug-ins for pop-up text, I finally happened upon Explanatory Dictionary. It's brilliant! Easy to use, yet powerful. You don't have to embed short codes where you want your pop-up boxes; just define your terms or phrases, and the plug-in does the rest.
More importantly, the pop-ups work even within other JS plug-ins like TablePress.
It's exactly what I need.
Just the best
