CM Tooltip (CMTG) - Extras - Performance and Debug Section

Perfomance and Debug Section - Who/What it is For?

Back to User Guide

This part of the settings is mostly for the developers and other tech savvy people (site administrators).

Also if your page is running fine and you don't see any problems this means you probably shouldn't change anything in this section of the settings.

If you do have a problems, you will be able to learn from this page if the issue you're having may be related to one of these settings.

Sometimes a site needs input from the community it serves.

With the Glossary Community Terms add-on users can help to build your glossary as you watch your key content grow.


Below: The Performance & Debug settings can be found on the General Settings tab of the Settings.

  • Add RSS Feeds  - This setting allows you to remove the creation of the RSS feeds of the comments on the Glossary Term pages.

    You may uncheck this if:
    •  You're getting 404 errors in the Google Webmaster Tools for the rss feeds of glossary terms.
  • Load the scripts in footer? - this setting allows to load the scripts and CSS styles on the end of your page, which can speed up the initial loading of the pages,
    but can create problems.

    You can try to uncheck this setting if:
    • You notice some errors related to CM Tooltip Glossary in the Chrome Developer Console.
    • The tooltips are not displaying although the terms are correctly highlighted and tooltips are enabled in the settings.
    • Tooltips are styled incorrectly.
  • Only highlight on "main" WP query? - Some themes are using more than one query on each page (eg. for some data manipulation) which results in the terms being parsed only on the first "main"
    query and not on the one which outputs the data on the screen. This is most often the case in the themes using page builders.

    You can try to uncheck this setting if:
    • Terms are not being highlighted at all (although you're sure the page/post contain the term).
  • Run the function outputting the Glossary Index Page only once - in extremely rare cases the Glossary Index Page appeared multiple times on the same page.
    Checking this checkbox will ensure it will be displayed just once.
  • Enable caching mechanisms - For performance reasons we've developed an internal caching system for the complex queries. Although enabling it makes the plugin quite unstable.
    It's advised not to use this option at all. The only case when this can be useful is when the performance of the Glossary Index Page or the page with lots of terms is extremely low.

    You can try to uncheck this setting if:
    • The performance of the Glossary Index Page is low (checking performance).
  • Disable the "Hide term from Glossary Index" functionality - The Hide term from Glossary Index allows to hide single terms from being displayed on the Glossary Index page.
    The tests shown that the resulting query slows down the Glossary Index Page significantly. Checking this, will remove the option from the metabox on Glossary Term pages.

    You can try to check this setting if:
    • The performance of the Glossary Index Page is low, and you're not using it.
  • Enable embedded mode? - This option was designed to allow using the plugin in Magento with the Fishpig Extension. It changes the way the scripts and styles of the plugin are outputted.

    You can try to check this setting if:
    • You want to embed your WordPress pages content in some other system.
  • Remove the parsing of the excerpts - By default the_exceprt() function internally uses the_content() filter which is responsible for highlighting the terms. But it some cases it has caused unwanted behavior.

    You can try to check this setting if:
    • You've noticed the weird behavior of the excerpts after activating highlighting on the page/post.
