Install Issues

Posted on 11 July 2014

After attempting to install several times because the admin menu access to the extension would never appear, I went to the developer site for support. There I found unanswered forum threads of others with the same issue. Ended up going with a paid extension.

Owner's reply: If you want support for Glossary, raise a support ticket - it is easy. Please don't review without doing this. Forum is for self help. Maybe you didn't install correctly - admin side Glossary in Joomla 3.3 can be seen at

Not convinced

Posted on 02 July 2014

Sorry, but to tell it is the "Original and Best" glossary it would need some improvements for styling and editing the whole component as wells the entries. And a bit of support and documentation would also be great..... the forum seems to be abandoned, FAQs are for the remository not for glossary.

For me it needs a lot of work til the component fits in my website. even the language is not well working.....

Owner's reply: It's depressing how often people write reviews without taking any trouble to look at the situation. Please read the "Support" page on the web site, where it is clearly stated that the forum is for self help. It's too bad that people who use advanced software that is provided to them free of charge, but can't be bothered to help their fellow users. There is a ticket system, where issues are promptly handled, and the author's email address is in every code module. No issues have been raised for Glossary in the past few days, so it is evident that the reviewer has made no attempt to resolve such problems as he may think he has experienced. The styling of Glossary is intended to be minimal, so as to fit with a wide range of templates. It is also easily customised.

Works great

Tested on my joomla 2.5. Work perfect without any bugs. Registered Joomla account just to leave this feedback and thanks the developer for such a great and free module.

language.ini errors

Posted on 11 December 2013

I checked the ini file in languages and found it has totally nothing to do with an ini file! There isnt anything that could be corrected as it is a non ini file! I also checked at the site for support and questions from other even from 2011 are still unanswered. I wonder if someone faces a serious problem if it will be worth to even try it! maybe in a sandbox environment. But then again ... we arent here for testing things but rather find solutions to our problems! If you publish something better make sure you know what you are releasing!

Owner's reply: 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 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 :)

Can the Glossary work with Greek characters;


Owner's reply: Yes, provided your database is set up correctly, Glossary will support UTF-8 which provides for almost all possible character sets.

I have waited a long time for this great extension available for Joomla 2.5. Now it's here and for now it's great.

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.

After i install plugin for this glossary on Joomla 2.5, site crashed. I see it is not only my trouble - another user comment same on download site.

Be carefull and make a backup bebore install

Owner's reply: 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.

Finally updated for J!2.5+

All that Gloss(ar)y goodness. Works great.

Thank goodness!

Excellent component!

I used this on a J1.5 site, and it is really a very helpfull component - great work! Actually the only really usefull glossary tool available for Joomla, as it automatically tags words in your articles, if there are definitions in Glossary available.

Unfortunately its still not available for Joomla 1.7. Hope this will be updated soon!

Perfect, thanks a lot. Its code is sophisticated. So, I was able to change it, a little, regarding my needs.

BTW, it is time to publish Glossary for Joomla 1.7.

A component that is easy to install and use, yet has an unparalleled depth of features for a powerful file repository. The latest version adds the ability to play audio/video files as well as to download them. There are related modules and plugins to complement the main component. Remository supports the secure hosting of local or remote files for download by site visitors. Files can be uploaded by users, and locally hosted files can be stored in either the database or the file system. Thumbnails can be uploaded along with files, or automatically generated with uploads of image files. Displays can be customized, and Remository includes a very flexible access control system so that upload, download and editing can be managed in almost unlimited ways. The size of the file repository can be small or large. Customized versions and professional support are available by arrangement.
