Name Directory

Name directory (glossary) with lots of options. Very easy to add to your site with a simple shortcode. It can have multiple directories.

This plugin adds name/term directories to your WordPress installation. They are like glossaries. The output on your website is like a glossary/index. I recommend you to take a look at the screenshots, they illustrate more than words.

The Name Directory plugin was orginally developed for ParkietenVilla.nl to show a directory of names to name your budgies.

A name directory is a directory that contains entries with the following properties:

  • name
  • description
  • submitter

You can create multiple directories with this plugin. Every directory can be embedded with a very simple shortcode which you can just copy-and-paste in your own pages and posts. Every directory has a few configuration options that customize the layout and functionality of the directory:

  • Show/Hide title
  • Show/Hide description
  • Show/Hide suggestion form
  • Show/Hide submitter name
  • Show/Hide search function (searches names/titles and description)
  • Show/Hide a horizontal rule between the entries
  • Show/Hide all entries when the user has not chosen an index-letter yet
  • Show/Hide the newest entries (and choose an amount of newest entries to show)
  • When you embed a directory, you can configure it to start with a letter of your choosing. E.g.: start on letter J.

The administration view of this plugin has the familiar look and feel of (the rest of) the WordPress Administration panel. I have done my best to enable some AJAX-features in the administration panel, so you can work efficiently while adding new entries.

Also featured since v1.7: .CSV-file import functionality
