CM Tooltip (CMTG) - API - Merriam Webster

Using the Merriam Webster Dictionary API

The Tooltip Glossary eCommerce edition can integrate Merriam Webster Dictionary or Thesaurus, each of them requiring  its own API key that needs to be obtained.

To obtain the Merriam Webster Dictionary API key please first read this  FAQ . Then register your account to receive the API key.
(Please notice that MW may charge money for getting an API key depending on the usage of your website. Also we are only supporting the plain English dictionary from the list of available dictionaries available in MW site).

To start working with Merriam Webster Dictionary API you first need to set the plugin setting to support MW content in the term page or the tooltip. Please visit the plugin settings under the API tab you will find the following options.

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.
