The current version includes use of the "Markdown" editing scheme for styling glossary definitions; soundex option in searching; numeric items grouped together; flexible configuration options.
I am sorry you were unhappy with Glossary, which is used successfully on many web sites. It does not use an ini file for language, but language support works fine using symbol definitions. The support page http://remository.com/get-help/ makes it clear that the forum is for self help - if it isn't working, then so much for community. It also indicates that there is a ticket system, and tickets are processed promptly. You can also email the developer - the email address is in every code module. Nobody is asking you to test, but please review the support options before writing reviews :)
Sure, there was a problem with a blank screen in back- and frontend. But the developer was very busy to solved the problem within 36 hours.
And in that way, I couldn't understand your criticism, optimistRU. In the support forum was a running discussion and everybody, who was able to read, could notice, the developer is doing his very best to solve the problem.
Be carefull and make a backup bebore install
I'm sorry that a few people have had problems with new code that enabled Glossary to move to Joomla 2.5. The issues did not show up during testing. Although I would always recommend people to take care over having good backups, in fact nobody has lost anything over this problem. It has indeed been discussed in the forum for Glossary, and solutions have been provided promptly. So far as I know, nobody is having any problems with the latest code.
Unfortunately its still not available for Joomla 1.7. Hope this will be updated soon!
I just updated to version 2.76 and now it runs perfectly. I have used many glossary programs over the years. In my opinion, this one is the best.
Thank you very much Martin
Note: If you update, you must follow his provided instructions.
First the install doesn't work. Seems you needed another component as well.
After reinstalling I found that there was an error: it's unable to load some diskcache file.
I uninstalled and came to some shocking conclusions:
The installation forces 2 entries in the main menu(!)
The uninstallation is very buggy: the plugin is not removed neither is the module setting.
Althought product works fine for others, it failed for me (running J1.5.18).
I am sorry you had problems. In tests and for most users, the install does work. There is no pre-requisite component. The installation creates a menu entry in order to get people up and running as easily as possible - I know from experience that not every user is clear that a component will need a menu entry if it is to be accessed. It is easy to delete the entry or change it. The uninstall is not buggy, it does not remove related plugins and modules by design - please see http://remository.com/forum/func,view/id,16782/. Glossary is supported by both a forum and a trouble ticket system; if you experienced problems, I do not know why you did not make use of them.
Glossary picks up the language automatically from the CMS (subject to there being a language file available) or this can be overridden through the configuration, set by the administrator.
I had started my own text copy but fortunately hadn't gotten very far before someone on the Joomla! forums sent me a link to this Glossary.
Thank goodness! There are some minor cosmetic changes I'd like to see, personally, but they are not functional issues, and I love that it scans the whole site and automatically picks up on any of your entered words, plus being able to add different glossaries has been helpful. I have one for specifically medical terms, one for abbreviations, and so on.
A little tedious to enter everything, as soon as you save an entry it goes back out to the menu instead of giving you an option to enter another, but I'm hoping that will be the next update. Headed over to the developer's site to suggest it right now!
