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.

Also,

Now getting this error when trying to edit an entry:


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

Something I did wrong? Bug? Is there a fix?

That means, that you are using the 'ANSI_X3.4-1968'-charset and that this charset does not support the htmlentities function.

Just try to open 'class_dm_vbglossar_entry.php' and check line 377, outsource

by adding # at the beginning of the line.

You might find another part of the addon where this error appears; just do this again at the specific parts. That might fix this.

This doesn't seem to be working. When I set that condition to "Yes" and preview the post, it shows the same word cross-linked twice.

Vossi,

As you can see by visiting the following thread: http://www.glitchpcforums.com/forum/...g-the-Glossary

It appears the afore mentioned setting does not prevent the same word from being automatically parsed more than once.

Is this a bug? I'd like to know, please...because it would really be annoying if the same word within a post is parsed more than once.

Also, I had asked, previously, about words that are in the Glossary, but were used in threads/posts before the mod was implemented. How do we make sure these words are parsed, as well. It would seem only new threads/posts are parsed...and not older ones.

Thanks for taking a look.

Is there a particular reason that the links are being converted to this type of character encoding? When I hit view source the linked word (physically between the a tag) doesn't say "Widget Here" but instead shows the amp code or whatever the name for that is. While it displays fine my guess is that google would rather follow a text link than this.

In Preview of the entry or the entry view itself?

Yep, it has a reason as the display would screw up otherwise.

Yes...both. You did follow the link I provided (above) to see the same word "computer" being parsed more than once, correct?

Hi, is there a way to change the "Glossary" link in the navbar from relative linking to full url linking? I have custom pages and the link in my custom pages doesn't work properly.

Thanks,
w

example


from: vbglossar.php

With the build-in function of vB or vBSEO?
