climate change glossary

This plugin imports a SKOS thesaurus, highlights terms and generates links automatically for any terms available in the thesaurus.

With this plugin any SKOS thesaurus can be imported into your WordPress blog (via ARC2 into an RDF triple store). A renewable energy and climate change thesaurus is pre-installed. On two pages (automatically generated) the whole thesaurus can be displayed and used as a glossary on your blog. One page is the main page of the glossary which displays all concepts with their preferred labels and their alternative labels (synonyms). The list of concepts is displayed in an alphabetical order and can be filtered by their first letters. The second page represents the detail view of each concept. All kinds of labels and relations (prefLabel, altLabel, hiddenLabel, definition, scopNote, broader, narrower und related) of a given term (concept) can be loaded and displayed. Each post is analysed automatically to find words and phrases maching labels of a concept (prefLabel, altLabel or hiddenLabel) in the thesaurus. The first hit will automatically be highlighted. A mousover tooltip shows the short description of the term/phrase and the link points to the more detailed description on the glossary page.


  • [ccg-abcindex]: displays an abc filter for filtering the concepts alphabetically.
  • [ccg-itemlist]: displays a list of concepts (filterd by its first letter).
  • [ccg-itemdetails]: displays the detail page of a selected concept.
  • [ccg-noparse] ... [/ccg-noparse]: the content between of the shortcode is excluded from autmatic linking.
  • [ccg-searchform title="..." width="...[ px | % ]"]: displays a search form with a autocomplete field to find a concept.

What's new?

  • The Plugin works now with the user-friendly multilingual dynamic content management qTranslate X for a multilingual WordPress
  • The URL to the detail page of a concept is now SEO optimized
  • The search algorithm behind the search link on top of the concept detail page is extended (searches now for prefered and alternative labels)
  • Implemented new shortcode with which you can add a simple glossary search form between content. The shortcode is called [ccg-searchform] and has two optional parameters: title (The title over the textfield. Leave blank if you don't want a title) and width (The width of the textfield). An example: [ccg-searchform title="Glossary search" width="50%"]


  • It is possible to include a list of glossary terms in the settings which will then be excluded from automated linking.
  • There is a sidebar-widget which incorporates a search field including autocomplete. This autocomplete service suggests terms from the glossary. Once such a term is chosen, one is automatically connected to the webpage describing the term. The widget can be pulled into any sidebar (depending on the theme) from the sub-section of Appearance/Widgets.
  • There is a shortcode with which specific parts of the content can be excluded from automatically being linked. The shortcode is called ccg-noparse, and it is opened with [ccg-noparse] and closed with [/ccg-noparse]. Automated linking is disabled for any text between the code.

Thanks to Benjamin Nowack: The thesaurus is imported into the system and is queried via ARC2 (https://github.com/semsol/arc2). Thanks to rduffy (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile/rduffy). His Glossary Plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/automatic-glossary) inspired me, and I was able to develop this plugin on top of his ideas.
