What is vBulletin-Glossary:

A professional glossary with features like :
  • crosslinking
  • attachments in entries using vBullstin attachment system
  • searchable by using the vBulletin standard search
  • edit-history just like in wikipedia
  • synonyms to combine crosslinkings to other words
  • optional entryfields for more details of entry
  • vb-SEO compatible
  • etc.

- Upload all files in 'upload' to your server

- set 777-permission for the following directories:
  • /vbglossar
  • /vbglossar/backup
  • /vbglossar/temp
- Import 'product-vbglossar.xml' in AdminCP as Add-On.

Right after the import of the productfile, go and set the usergroups. Afterwards edit the setting in AdminCP (Settings and Crosslinking). Now go to 'manage categories' and create the wanted cats.

Now the glossary should be configured and ready to use.

Updates from previous versions:

Follow the instruction of a new installation, also check the file permissions. After importing the product (overwrite: yes), check the grouprights and the settings of the glossary as there are some new features. In case the entries won't show up, please rebuild the datastore in the tools-section of the glossarin in admincp.

Template Modification:

Edit template 'search.css' and check for the following text

/* as post */
Please include the following code above this:

.threadinfo.glossaryentry a.threadstatus
background-image:url({vb:stylevar imgdir_searchresults}/search_results_glossaryentry.png);
background-position: 11px 6px;

This addon has been developed by the follwing people (a-z): Andreas, Captainslater, Gérome, Surviver and me. We spent every free minute for this project (coding, translation, tests, etc). Also MrD and Ragtek have tested during the time when this addon got developed.

In directory '/tools' you might find a usefull Script by Gérome. User of vBCMS will find a module for their portal in directory 'vbcms' which shows a random entry of the glossary.

  • 1.0.0 - First version
  • 1.0.0 PL 1 - Fixed Version by Gérome, users can't write unwnated entries anymore.
  • 1.0.1 - overwork of the code, now working with datastore and datamanager. Also we included some small new features into the addon (e. g. revert entries, inlinemod, etc).
  • 1.0.2 - overwork of the code, bugs removed, a lot of new features
  • 1.0.3 - fixed more small bugs and added new functions (create threads for discussions, more options for crosslinking, better options for mods/admins, etc).
  • 1.0.4 - bugfix-release.
  • 1.1.0 - added more main-features (synonyms can be used now, optional use of entryfields within categories, PDF-functions included, vB-SEO kompatible, TOC-list, etc)
  • 2.0.5 - Version for vBulletin 4.x with additional new features, bugs fixed.
  • 2.0.6 - Version for vBulletin 4.1.4 with small bug fixes.

I like! Do you plan on supporting this for years to come? Do you notice slower page loads?

Sure I do want to keep up the support and no, the way we use the routine for crosslinking doesnt effect the page load at all :)

Thank you I think this will come in handy!

I just installed it and I am just a bit confused, when you say:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Do I need to do this on this install or only if I am upgrading from a previous version?????

In both cases. The glossary is one of the very very few addons that uses the build-in search function in vbulletin 4.x. In order to show the small icon in the listbit while the search results get displayed, you need to add this few lines to the css.

If you dont do that, you'll have a missing icon in the listbit results.

Is there any way to limit the number of crosslinks in a post?

Is there any way to limit the number of times the same link is listed in a post? For example if the word "People" was a link and that word appeared 7 times in a post, is there a way to make it so that it only had a link to the first time it appeared and not seven times?

is there a live demo that we can checkout?
screenshots are nice, but a front end demo would be handy ;)
