vB Version: 4.1.4 Rating: (15 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 127
Released: 15 Feb 2011 Last Update: 17 Jun 2011 Downloads: 1129
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

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.
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.

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;
}
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)
  • 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.

Ah, i was thinking in the case of your Google example, the Google logo would appear in the list for their entry. (not just on the actual single entry page, but on lists of multiple entries.)

Just a thought.

No Problem, any news on the HTML issue (want to start to include my prepared HTML sites *G*)

And i think Arkham Idea is good (if I understood it right), since (yes that again :P) Game Stuff often has Icons (like Items, Champions and so on)

Found another 2 Bugs:

- So far HTML has worked one time (for some reason), but on hitting edit, all HTML Code was gone (and since then HTML hasn't worked again)

- On longer Text, its completely deleting any Format (like from hitting Enter, not the BB Code)

//edit: Got the Displayorder to work:

Sorting on category overview - Choose here the sorting for the category overview. --> has to be user Defined (standard its alphabetical) and then Re-generate datastore. Now it shows as it should .

I am having some issues with integrating vbSEO on VB 4.1.1.

I have the custom rewrite rules in place, however there seem to be few things not working.

For reference here are the rules I am running


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

The following URL's are failing:

1.) http://www.performanceboats.com/kb/1...-destinations/

If I edit it to this http://www.performanceboats.com/kb/1...+destinations/ it works.

2.) http://www.performanceboats.com/kb/1...ke-havasu.html

Like number 1 if I change the - to a + in both boating-desination and lake-havasu it works.

3.) http://www.performanceboats.com/kb/tag/Lake+Havasu/

The last one there is a result of clicking through from a tag in a post. I have vbseo integration turned on in the settings as well. Anyone else seeing this?

Just found another oddity. When I turned it on the plugin broke all my attachement links under VBSEO. The path that should have been myforum/subforumname/attachments/something-something.jpg turned into myforum/subforumname/attachments/something-something-jpg

Note the -jpg that should be .jpg

This is in VB4.1.1 with vbseo installed.

hi, I just added them in vbseo panel, however it doesn't seem to work fully


1, mysite/vbglossar.php changes into mysite/glossary/

2, however, mysiteglossary/tag/some+word/ changes into mysite/glossary/?do=showentry&id=7

Another switch somewhere?

Thanks

Did you activate vBSEO-support for the glossary in admincp -> vBulletin-GLossary -> External addons?

Great mod! I guess you have the only vB4 mods with search integration

I found two small bugs:
  1. In the vbglossar_mailtofriend template replace

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

    with

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

  2. The mod doesn't work with CSS as files. In the vbglossar_showcat template you have for example:

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

    But forumdisplay-rollup isn't enough. That rollup doesn't contain all CSS files listed in the else clause. For example memberlist.css is missing in it.
    The same goes for the vbglossar_home template. For example toolsmenu.css is missing in it when you have CSS as files.

    Solution: create custom glossary rollup xml's with all necessary templates listed in them.

And a suggestion: add custom meta descriptions (and keywords) to the vbglossar_showentry template. Now all entries have the same, default meta information. You need to disable the default ones in headinclude for that with a plugin setting $show['threadinfo'].

Please disregard any of my prior posts on this thread. An uninstall/reinstall of a few plugins resolved all prior issues.

The only strange thing I'm seeing is that images using the IMG BB code tag are being rendered as links instead of images. Attachments show fine, just not inline images.

This is a great MOD BTW.

This is going to be fixed in the next version.

Any way to make this mod work with words that were entered before the Glossary was installed?

It's working for all new entries, but not the old ones. Say...the word "computer" is in the Glossary, all new threads/posts with that particular word work, but the words that were there, prior, do not.

Any help?

BTW...excellent mod! Two thumbs up!
