With the glossary you can create a comprehensive list of terms and definitions. The feature also enables you to display responsive tooltips that appear when users hover over a term, providing users with quick and convenient access to definitions. New 2023 Version!

The CM Glossary Tooltip is a powerful WordPress plugin that allows you to create a glossary of terms and definitions for your website. It works by automatically detecting glossary terms within your posts or pages and adding links to a dedicated glossary page that includes the term’s definition.

When users hover over the linked term, a tooltip pops up displaying the definition. The plugin also generates a responsive glossary index that lists all of the terms used throughout your website and provides easy access to their definitions.

The Pro editions include even more powerful features, such as: audio and video tooltips, Wikipedia support, Google Translate and Merriam-Webster integrations, ChatGPT integration, support for abbreviations and variations, multiple glossaries support, multiple index templates and much more.

Detailed Free Version User Guide

  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Define your glossary terms under the glossary menu item in the administration interface. The title of the page should be the term. The body content should be the definition.
  4. Creates a main Glossary page (example “Glossary”) with no body content, if you so wish. If you do not create this page then your terms will still be highlighted, but without a central listing page of all your terms.
  5. In the plugin’s dashboard preferences, enter the main Glossary page’s id (optional as above)
  6. There are a handful of other optional preferences available in the dashboard.

Note: You must have a call to wp_head() in your template in order for the Tooltip js and css to work properly. If your theme does not support them you will need to link to these files manually in your theme (not recommended).

No. It can be called anything. In fact you don’t even need to have a main Glossary page.

No. Just leave that page blank. The plugin will create an unordered list of terms automatically.

Just wrap the paragraph with [glossary_exclude] paragraph text [/glossary_exclude].

How do I define the Glossary link style?

The plug-in does what it says it will. It provides lots of options to allow customizations. Customer support is very good - when I had questions during set up, they were very quick to respond to help me. I highly recommend the plug-in and the company!

Developing a botanical website has been greatly simplified by the use of the brilliant plug in ToolTips. Botanist use a special language to describe plant parts, especially flower bits. By using these special words with ToolTips, my descriptions of species have been simplified. The special botanical description words are used and for the lay person they can hover over the word to find its meaning. I am truly impressed and the support from Creative Minds people when it hasn't been working and I'm tearing my hair out has been outstanding. THANK YOU CM! ToolTips is superb!

I've spent over a month trying to get the search function in the Pro version to work correctly and I cannot get answers from the online documentation or email support. Requests for a refund have been ignored. Plugin is ok for what it does, but if you need high functioning search capability, you may want to look elsewhere.

Easy to install. Easy to configure. Works as advertised, I had a problem, came here to Support, and CMS helped me solve that problem with one observation (it was an issue with another plugin). Thanks for the excellent plugin!
25.01.2023
I used the plugin on a German site and couldn't solve the incorrect display of non-english characters like ö and ü. I gave CreativeMinds access to the admin and it was solved within a few days. Other than that little hick up, the plugin works very good and is easy to use. And a very useful feature for the visitors of the website.
