CM Tooltip (CMTG) - Terms - Abbreviations
Glossary Term Abbreviation
The CM Glossary Plugin will search and parse the code, looking for term abbreviations. If it finds any abbreviations, it will automatically generate links to the current term page.
In the example shown below, API is used as the main term title, while the full name is entered in the abbreviation field. The results are shown in the term page:
How Abbreviations Work
Important: Each abbreviation can only be connected to one glossary term and you can only have one abbreviation for each term.
In addition, the abbreviation will be displayed on the term page below the term title.
On the Glossary Index Page, the abbreviation will be listed separately although it will point to the same term page as the full term.
The Abbreviations metabox is located in the editor for each glossary term page:
It's possible to configure:
- If the abbreviations are shown between round brackets ( ) or square brackets [ ] in the tooltip.
- If abbreviations should be shown or not after the term title.
- If abbreviations are displayed as separate items in the glossary. Disabling this can prevent duplicates from showing in the index.
The settings can be found under the path Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip → Settings → General Settings → Abbreviation Settings submenu shown below:
