This is just BLISS for information workers, teachers, researchers, a FAQ provider, a business directory, a project knowledgebase. OUTSTANDING – FEATURES * ADMIN INTERFACE * STYLING * SUPPORT

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 Ecommerce (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.

This is a really good plugin. In truth, I tried all of the other ‘free’ plugins and they were ok, but they lacked this or that feature. I am using it at my first blog. So far no bugs, and I am using Nginx, FPM, WordPress, and the Avada theme. P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler) showed no serious performance hit. What I like is that the Gallery has Related Post index that can be manually refreshed. I am planning to get a few related plugins in the future like additional preformatted styles, just out of curiosity. I had no problem making my own styles. I am running about 49 plugins, most of which are admin related.
With this plugin I was not only able to provide the extra lexis detail my English language students need, but by linking to the dictionary and Wikipedia, I was able to add enormous amounts of content to my site with ease. The support is fast and well, supportive. A small error was quickly remedied and I would not hesitate to recommend this plugin and the people behind it.
This is a really handy plugin. I had an issue that was rectified fairly quickly and I’m super impressed that their tech support team gets back to you within 24 hours. You can’t beat that.
