Adding Content from Wikipedia to the Glossary

Back to User Guide

In the eCommerce edition of the CM Tooltip Glossary plugin it is possible to add Wikipedia content to the term page and to the tooltip content.

How does the plugin display the content generated by the Wikipedia API?

The content taken from Wikipedia is generated automatically and can also include images, tables and all other content that was originally included in the Wikipedia term definition.

Due to the huge amounts of content in most of the Wikipedia pages we only display the first section which usually includes the most general data. 
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.

In the plugin settings under the API section you can find the section which deals with Wikipedia.

Pointing to specific Wiki Term

Since some of the Wikipedia terms have duplicate meaning you can manually point the glossary to retrieve a specific term from Wikipedia by including the Wikipedia page URL as show in this image.

Here is an example of how this looks in the tooltip:
