Amazing. Just what I was looking for. Nice options too. THanks for this.

Decent, but terms list is badly designed
By , for WP 4.1.1

It has a lot of options, but the terms list on the glossary page is clumped up. The Custom Alphabet is a great feature! Terms overlap on top of each other, if images are included.

So useful! Just what I needed.

I love this plugin. My wish-list for improvements would be to add the instructions for "[no-explanation][/no-explanation] tags" to the settings somewhere, so I don't have to come searching for it here each time I need it.

works like expected

Simple, Effective and well customizable
By , for WP 4.0

I installed this plugin recently on my WP site. Everything is perfect except a little bug with WP native paragraph tag (the plugin's code mixes with the paragraph code on every post, thus the first paragraph HTML code is visible for the readers. I hope a solution or hack will be found soon.

Suggestion: in the page where the dictionary is displaying (with A, B, C, D...) it woul be great to have the possibility to separate the terms starting with the same letter by the letter. Example
- abracadabra
- acradabadra
- baobab
- best in class

Thanks for your work. I hope there will be new functions added (customization and styling, importing and exporting csv dictionaries, etc.)

Nice plugin ! And the contributor is very efficient when you have a problem.

A Great Addition
By , for WP 3.9.2

I have a number of Parish 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.

The new version was a big change a a bit of a speed hump, however I am really really very very happy now I have understood what it makes possible, I can now add small images to the definition and they display nicely on the glossary page and in the mouse over tool tips. Well Done.

Explanatory Dictionary as a technical Glossary
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.
