WordPress Glossary Plugin (CMTG) - Tooltips - Amazon Banners

Adding Amazon Product Suggestions

Back to User Guide


  • This feature is only available in the Ecommerce edition of the WordPress Glossary plugin.
  • The version 3.9.9 was replaced Amazon Products with Amazon Banners. The Amazon API  changed and now it's not possible to show banners in tooltip like before.

Amazon Banners will appear inside a tooltip when terms are hovered, and when clicked, they will refer to the desired product page on Amazon where the product is sold.


Navigate to Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip Glossary Ecommerce → Settings

Navigation to the plugin settings - Tooltip Plugin WordPress

    If there are multiple banners, they will show up randomly in the tooltip.
