Glossary Plugin

The oldish Glossary Plugin is re-released. The code is re-developed, but the database stays the same for now. See latest developments or demo yourselves with a large grossary.

The plugin is intended to create glossaries for your site, whilst your content can be enriched with links to known glossary entries. Multiple subjects are supported and a autotag lets you choose which subject to use for a certain text.

Make sure you have users added to the glossary.admin and/or glossary.edit security groups.

Glossary catches the userID that submits a term, and the userID that edits a term. Along with a timeStamp. Categories can be defined which work site wide.

Configuration is still old-fashioned; find them in config.php. Available languages are English and German (with thanks to Alexander Schmacks).
