Glossary terms: A new feature which you can contribute to!

Welcome all to this new (and hopefully improved) web site.
 
One new feature is Glossary terms  which will show additional information regarding a term. For example, fields are defined in the glossary (with values as synonym). So you should see the following:
 
 
To use this new feature:
  • Hover over the link, a tool tip will appear
  • If the tool tip includes a link, you can click on it to go to a page with more information.
The glossary list will grow as all of us contribute, so... feel free to propose new terms, description, synonyms and more info links (simply reply to this post with your suggestions)
 
 

Re: Glossary terms: A new feature which you can contribute ...

I'm not clear -
when I post in the forum,
I'm asked to fill in a "Tag" field and a "Glossary" field - what happens when I put words in the "Glossary" field ?

Re: Glossary terms: A new feature which you can contribute ...

I've removed the Glossary field in forum and blog posts

Re: Glossary terms: A new feature which you can contribute ...

I notice the word "Format" gets a glossary link for "Form"
see post  www.sqlnotes.net/drupal5/index.php  actually you dont need to - see Format !!

Fixed!
 
n.b. Please respond to the most appropriate level of the comment hierarchy, it requires getting used to it, but add clarity. And edit the subject if required. Thanks

Re: Glossary terms: A new feature which you can contribute ...

As book pages have both Glossary and Tag tagging (!), the question arises as to which to use.
 
I'd like to propose that Glossary terms use be limited to the InfoQube program. Tags are more general in nature and could be used for all content classification.
 
As an example, a web site rich text editor how-to book page could set the tag to Web:Editor
 
Comments welcomed!

I agree! (EDIT  2008 11 20 -- 00 37 : i agree with " I'd like to propose that Glossary terms use be limited to the InfoQube program. Tags are more general in nature and could be used for all content classification.")
 
(PS : BTW : nice work Pierre... Wow.)

Glossary term request

"item" is one of the basic things that should be in the glossary

I'm not quite following how to create glossary entries or what putting words in the Glossay field does.
Thanks,

this is Pierre's glossary lol  [edit] I didnt mean to be rude here !! [/edit]  - this is the one that then shows as pop-ups if you enter one of the words in a post
 
have a look at "ours"
 

Re: Glossary terms: A new feature which you can contribute ...

The new posts by "anonymous" are spam...but since the topic has been bumped, a chance to bring up a minor matter:

Glossary terms continue to appear in forums even when "Disable Glossary Indicators" is toggled in My Account. If I remove the checkmark, submit the change, and then restore and submit, the glossary items go away for awhile, but soon return. Are other forum users experiencing this as well?
