The CM Glossary Tooltips WordPress plugin allows you to create a directory of terms and then display its definitions in a fancy tooltip. It checks all posts and pages looking for terms that are defined in your glossary.

Technically, parsing happens in “the_content” filter every time it is loaded, before the information is sent to the browser.

This post explains in a simple way:


What Are Terms?

Terms are words or concepts that you would like to define. The plugin will neatly display them in your glossary.

For example, if your site is about cars, probable terms would be engine, tire, chassis, and exhaust.

With Tooltip Glossary, you can add definition, synonyms, abbreviations, related content, alternate meanings, images and much more.

What Are Tooltips?

The plugin shows tooltips for terms added to the glossary. These are shown when hovered over (each of this can be controlled in the plugin/page/term settings).
