Released: 15 Aug 2008 Last Update: 10 Dec 2008 Downloads: 1274

What is vBulletin-Glossary:

A professional glossary with features like :
  • crosslinking
  • attachments in entries
  • edit-history
  • synonyms
  • optional entryfields
  • vb-SEO compatible
  • etc.
Installation:

- 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.

Update from version 1.0.0 to version 1.0.1/version 1.0.1 to version 1.1.x:

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.

General:

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.

History:
  • 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)

Languages:

By default you will find the complete germany and english phrases in the product (look at ZIP-file), done by Captainslater. The turkish translation has been done by türkgürcü.

More translations are welcome and it would be nice if those will be published here.

Here's a little module for vBCMS which shows a random entry on the portal. Just in case, somebody like to use those little features...

Crosslinking Issues

Wonderful mod! MOTM quality, IMHO!

I only have one issue thus far. The crosslinking feature can hijack portions of existing links. It should be disabled if the text is within an existing link. This can be witnessed in the link below, where the portion of the previous link (The Shadow at the Bottom of the World) has a link to the glossary. Notice that the first segment of the text (Thomas Ligotti - ") still refers to the original link. Also note that the closing quotation mark has been stripped from the hyperlink and displays as normal text.
http://www.ligotti.net/showthread.php?t=1373

I have tested the process on a link which included only the glossary entry text, and it did not take over the link. Therefore, I assume the problem will only appear when a subset of the text is within a link which includes additional text within the description.

UPDATE
Strangely, the crosslink is not active when the text is presented while enclosed within quotation marks. The example above apparently was not following this rule due to the hyperlink. I would like to disable this rule as well, since I am using the glossary to catalog an author's body of work, and many of the stories are enclosed within quotation marks when referenced throughout the site.

I am also using this old glossary mod and would really appreciate it if some could write a converter for "Mindestic GlosPro"-glossary-entries.

There's a problem regarding search engines and so called "duplicate content". You are addressing the "showentry"-pages in at least 3 different ways:
  • From forum posts: http://www.myforum.com/vbglossar.php?do=showentry&item=blahblubb
  • Headlines on category pages within the glossary: http://www.myforum.com/vbglossar.php?do=showentry&catid=1&id=1234
  • "read more"-links on category pages: http://www.myforum.com/vbglossar.php?do=showentry&id=1234&catid=1 (the last to vars are switched)
I would suggest that you find a solution that there is only one url for a certain glossary-entry and therefore no duplicate content.

The next bug:
If you choose a certain letter from the "alphabet-table" within a certain category, the pagination is wrong. You are displaying the pagination for the whole category and not for a certain letter.

That doesnt have anything to with this addon being incompatible to vBaffiliate Links but is a logical thought when you know about the fact, that vBaffiliate Links forces his replace-routine on the global_start-hook. In this way the routines breaks everything coming along.

Using the global_start-hook for such a routine ain't good at all, actually we actually use the parser-hooks where those linking-routines belong to. We are not responsible for other peoples fault.

Yes, you are right. I also noticed this a few minutes ago. I fixed the problem by removing all "vBaffilialized" words from glossary descriptions.

Another question:
Why are you replacing the letters from A to Z with their html-entities in the link-texts (function "cb" in functions_vbglossar.php)?
