How do I set up my glossary index pagination?

To set your index pagination, go to Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip Glossary → Settings → Glossary Index Page. Scroll down to the Pagination section.

Enter the number of items per page and the type of pagination you require, as shown in the image below:

The plugin offers two different types of pagination:

  • Client-side: Longer initial loading time, but have a fast page switch (all of the items are loaded on page then visibility switched with JavaScript).
  • Server-side: Loads faster but results in a slower page switch (only the data required for the page is loaded).

Generally speaking, the Client-Side based index pagination will be better for small glossaries, but for the big ones (over 1000 terms) it might be necessary to use the Server-Side pagination to prevent server-side memory problems.
