WP Glossary
[resolved] This plug-in simply does not work (3 posts)

    I installed the plug-in just fine - using the latest version 3.3.2 with the latest WP 3.5

    I enter a glossary term and nothing happens anywhere that I can see.

    I don't see underlined words and no tool-tips appear.

    What is the function of this plug-in then????

    Generally, you want to provide a link to your site, not the plugin link. If you click the "other notes" tab on the plugin page, you'll go to this page here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-glossary/other_notes/

    If you want a word to link to a glossary term, you need to wrap shortcode text around it like so:


    when you hover over that word, it will show you the definition. To see a list of glossary terms on your site, you'll need to add a link to:


    If you read the rest of his page, he outlines all the shortcodes for putting a glossary on whatever page you want.

    hyperthalamus - the forums add the plugin url automatically as a way to tag the post :)

    perrymyk - the WP Glossary plugin uses shortcodes. Here is some general information on WordPress shortcodes: http://en.support.wordpress.com/shortcodes/

    Hopefully, armed with that knowledge, you can add glossary shortcodes.

    I do have it in my to-do list to create a nicer UI (like gallery). I just need to find the time :)
