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.

admincp -> manage entries

There you can import and export.

And yes, just change the rewrite rules to:

The phrases in the turkish translation are not updated, that's why this weird stuff appears.

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?

Thanks,
Kether
Any thoughts, Vossi? Seems you missed my questions on the first page. Thanks.

Admincp -> vBulletin-GLossary -> Crosslinking -> Exclude crosslinks within the same entry

A few Bugs i did run into:

- Displayorder is being ignored (in the Forum, not in the AdminCP)
- Adding a Sub Category to a Sub Category results in the Sub-Sub to be a normal major Category

//edit:
- HTML on also not working (even if BB and Smilies are deactivated), it just shows the HTML Tags

//edit2:
I am using vB 4.1.1 and HTML works just fine in the normal Forum

After changing this option in admincp, please run the maintenance and rebuild the datastore. Does it work afterwards?

Nope, didn't help, I also tried using smaller Numbers (so 1,2,3 instead of 10,20 - I also tried using 100 steps)

Ok, that explains that Part

Very apreciated.

Also a small Question:
Is it possible to write a own "Preview" for hovering over these Links? Would be very usefull since on ingame Items, no one is really interested in the Story but rather having a fast basic overview .

Not yet, but the idea is good.

Check this, it's already there:

AdminCP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager.

There you choose the Forum you want to edit, under 'Enable / Disable Features' you can edit 'Activate crosslinks for this forum?' as another option. You need to change the options under AdminCP -> vBulletin-Glossary -> Crosslinking for this this.

The other way around can be found under AdminCP -> vBulletin-Glossary -> Manage Categories. When editing a category you can set 'Display entries of this category as crosslinks within the forum' to no if you dont want to.

The Glossary has a lot of features everywhere at the needed places to fit the crosslinking to individual needs.

A category and entry image option would be great, too. I haven't tried this mod yet, so I'm not sure if that's already implemented.

Once again, Vossi, you rock.

Category images are included, entry images didnt make sense to me. But in general the attachment system can be used for the entries.
