I have searched for years and years to find the best way to present articles online and at last at last I have it. Tooltips Glossary is very well presented on the admin side with plenty of admin info notes. It has tons of options so I can be fussy and get what I want. Heaven. The really huge thing is its core – the global sitewide links which attach to every instance of the titles of its articles (Terms). So wherever that word occurs, it becomes a link, and the link opens its article. Not only that, a hover on the term gives the summary excerpt (a definition perhaps) or the first paragraph depending how you set it. Yet more – I can add synonyms like a plural, or variation of the word, or an alias name for a person. So when all these show up they will all link to the original article. (I have to use a small workaround for author names e.g. Smith, John; but it’s no big deal)
The Glossary – FAQ Knowledgebase Dictionary Encyclopedia Encyclopaedia Directory Index or whatever you want to name it – has its own index page which lists all the titles as links A-Z in various styles I can choose. The Glossary has Categories so David the Dev has just added a way to have category index pages too. There are also Tags. Then there are Related Articles links and a whole lot more.
Styling is good and there’s an extra plugin for styling the popup Tooltips boxes.
Support has been outstanding. David is keenly interested in developing the plugin and things I suggested expecting to pay for as custom features have calmly been added to the plugin within a week or two! How cool is that? David also understands what I ask for, or else carefully checks to see he does.
I am using the Ecocommerce (top level) of Tooltips Glossary but I did also find the free version is excellent. I went for the top version because it provides fast support and I’m a fussy admin, and because I really needed a couple of the premium extra features.
Don’t go for inferior plugins if you want a good site. Get the best like this because this is the kind of plugin which will carry the centre of your WP or else a major section of it. messing with inferior copies.
