How the Latest Update to the CM Tooltip Plugin Transformed the Lives of Both Developers and Frontend Users
The CM Tooltip plugin was one of the earliest WordPress plugins ever developed by CreativeMinds, and the most successful one too. It began as a very simple plugin, containing the tooltips, the term pages and the glossary index, which allowed for a very basic infrastructure upon which users could build their site or blog’s glossary.
Over time, more and more functions were gradually added to the plugin, enhancing it with more parsing and filtering options, external API integration (Merriam-Webster, Google Translate, Wikipedia, Amazon), and more.
The tutorial video bellow covers the glossary remote import add-on, which is a great addition to our already-powerful CM Tooltip glossary plugin.
This add-on allows you to have a constantly updated database of your site’s glossary, which you can easily export, transfer and merge with other glossaries on different WordPress sites.
