Creating Multiple Glossaries - Step by Step

1) Define the Glossary Index for each Category

In each category edit screen you can place a link to the category index page. This will support the Back to index links found in the term page. So terms related to a specific category will point to the category index page instead of the general index page which includes all terms from all categories. 

2) Associate desired terms with their categories

When adding a term to the glossary plugin you can associate the term with a category. You can create several categories and assign the first term to category A and the second one to category B. Under each category you can add as many terms as you want.

3) Build an Index Page for each Category

To do so you need to use the following shortcode: 

Show glossary category index – [glossary cat="category_slug"]

Admin Panel/Categories Page.

Shortcode with category slug.

Music Terms Glossary.

4) Use Black and Whitelist

To exclude or show only the terms from given category on the page/post open post/page edit page and select category in the box on the right side. Select Whitelist or Blacklist to include/exclude terms and update post/page.

Before adding Blacklist.

Extras

Disabling the Main Glossary Index

If you want to avoid having a global glossary index which shows all terms from all categories together you can edit this page and make it private so user will not be able to view it and search engine will not index it.

Supporting Each Category on Page or Post

On each page or post you can choose which category terms will be parsed by using the plugin metabox filter cats.

You can whitelist the category to use or blacklist the one not to use.
