Lexicographer creates an alphabetical index of your blog, using keywords you choose. The index can be included in any page, post or text widget.


  • Changed how the Lexicographer index is inserted in posts and pages. You must now use shortcodes instead of pasting the

{{Lexicographer index}}

string where you want the index to appear. * Using the shortcode, you can now specify the heading level of the capital character and if you want anchoring links for the terms or just plain links to posts. * Tested with WordPress 4.4.2.


  • The individual index sections are now put into divs of class lexicographer-index-section for the benefit of those who want to style and/or script the index.


  • The index is now put into a div of class lexicographer-index for the benefit of those who want to style and/or script the index.


  • Transliteration of lemmas to ASCII both for creating anchor names and for sorting now uses the same transliteration table. The characters ÄäÖöÜü (graphemes corresponding to German umlauts) still receive special treatment in that they are expanded à la ä → ae for anchor names (but not for sorting), but this is now done as a preprocessing step.
  • The transliteration table now covers almost every latin-derived letter in the Unicode blocks Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-A, Latin Extended-B and Latin Extended Additional. Most transliterations are "glyph-oriented" in that they involve only removing diacritic marks, decomposing ligatures and rotating letters back. A few transliterations are more "usage-oriented", such as ß → ss, þ → th or Ɣ → g. Some effort was made to keep the transliteration table sane, consistent and language-neutral. Missing letters are indicated in comments. Suggestions for additions and improvement are more than welcome!
  • Bugfix: generated links were broken if not using /%postname permalinks.
  • Bugfix: was indexing unpublished posts/pages on installation.


  • Now observing DB_CHARSET for creating the database table. This fixes a problem where non-ASCII characters get replaced by question marks when inserting into the table via a UTF-8 connection.
  • Tested with WordPress 3.3.2.
  • Updated documentation.
