The CM Glossary Tooltip Pro+ and eCommerce editions support the use of term categories, which can provide a solution for the following use cases:

  • Divide the glossary into sections - Explained in this guide.
  • Use several glossaries on the same site (in combination with using shortcodes) - Learn more in the specific guide.

How to create and display your term categories?

The first step in creating the term categories is by going to the CM Tooltip admin menu and selecting the option “categories”, as shown below:

Next, using the WordPress built in category management system, create your term categories and assign different terms to each of them:

Despite the very similar look, these are not the same categories as the WordPress built-in Post Categories!

Once categories have been added, it is possible to assign each of your glossary terms to the category/categories it belongs to, as shown in the screenshot below:

How will my term categories be made visible?

A Categories dropbox will appear in the Glossary Index Page, allowing users to choose between the different term categories, as shown below:

Disabling Tooltips On Categories
