WordPress Glossary Plugin (CMTG) - Index - Removing or Showing Tooltips On Specific Pages

Removing or Showing Tooltips Only On Glossary Or Other Pages

Back to User Guide

Removing or showing the tooltip display from a page, including from the Glossary Index Page, is done by editing the page. 

This is available in all premium versions of the WordPress Glossary plugin.

Finding The Index Page

Open the Glossary Index Page in the WordPress editor - the easiest way to find the page is to go to Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip Glossary → Settings. The link is above the settings tabs:

Link to the glossary - Wiki Plugin for WordPress
Link to the glossary

Turning Tooltip Off or On on a Single Page

Edit that page and check the metabox CM Tooltip - Disables on the right corner.

Change the dropdown Tooltips to Don't Show.

Three Available Options

An in-depth look on the three options: 

  • Use global settings - this page will use the general settings. This is the default for all pages
  • Disable - Tooltips will not show on this page, no matter what the general settings are
  • Show - Tooltips will show on this page, no matter what the general settings are

Use Case: Showing Tooltip ONLY on One Page

With the same settings, it's possible to do the reverse: show tooltips only on one or a select number of pages.


  • Under Settings → Tooltip tab → Tooltip - Content section, disable Show tooltip. This will disable tooltips on all pages.
