CM Tooltip (CMTG) - Index - Pagination (Improving Index Performance)
Glossary Index Pagination
What is This Feature?
The CM Tooltip Glossary plugin Pro, Pro+ and eCommerce editions let you add index pagination to your glossary, and specify how many terms should appear on each page.
This is particularly recommended for achieving ease of navigation on large glossaries and to overcome performance issues with large glossaries.
Tip: Additional Setting
Pagination will only work if the index setting Number of items per letter (0 for no limit) is turned off. Learn more: CM Tooltip (CMTG) - Index - The Alphabetic Index

Here’s an example of a glossary that uses server side index pagination:
