WordPress Glossary Plugin (CMTG) - Terms - Using Term Excerpts

Term Excerpt 

Back to User Guide

With the WordPress Glossary plugin, you can easily create WordPress tooltip excerpts, allowing your tooltip to only display a quick teaser rather than the complete term definition.  

If you want the Tooltip to show only the “Excerpt” of the post instead of the Content within the term page, you need to first set up an “Excerpt” for the term.

Term Excerpts Example

Alternatively, if you want the tooltip to display the first paragraph of your term page unmodified, you can limit the number of characters that appear in the tooltip by entering their amount in the “limit tooltip length” field, which is under the tooltip tab in the plugin settings.
