In the store/lmdi/gloss folder, put a .htaccess file containing following lines:

Code: Select all

<Files *>
	Order Allow,Deny
	Allow from all
</Files>

Hello and let me thank you for this extension, is very usefull

Just a question: is there a possibility to have in the glossary "complex" words such as "Black Panther"? Because I tried but it recognize separately the 2 words. I tried also with "Black-Panther" but it seems that the - is not contemplated.

Any idea?

Thank you

If I remember correctly, phrases with space character only work if the separate words don't exist in the glossary.

Tried and you're right.

Is there anyway a way to avoid this "problem"? It can be possible that I've to insert many records with spaces and could be that a word will be repeated.
I tried also with . but no way (

This non recursive replace option should be possible (I already have such a feature in some other extensions), but it is not very high in the todo list.

It can be also an extention that need commands
Such as <link"Black Panther"> (or something like that that maybe can call a record in a database)

If the commands are simple also the users can do that (I can put an instruction sticky post hehe)

Thank you

Just few questions

Is resolving the unique names with space problem?
The link open a new window or can be a pop up small window in the same page?

Thank you very much

The glossary is only a glossary. It displays a popup window to explain, for instance, a technical term that most users don't know. If you have lengthy explanations to give, you should search for another tool.

Please explain what you're looking for.

Is exactly what I'm looking for.

I have 2 "problems"
- The composite words with space (such as "Black Panther"). My glossary will be full of those ones and I'm afraid that some single words can be repeated (i.e. "Panther" so "Black Panther" will not be displayed correctly anymore). Is there a special "bounding char" that can help? I tryed "Black.Panther", or "Black-Panther" but those chars are not parsed.

- If I will have many many posts and many glossary words the forum will be slowed by this plugin?

And by the way thank you for your past kind answers (very fast and precise, really)

For the first point, I can't help you for the moment.
For the second one, this extension runs on a board with 1 350 000 messages and about 600 glossary terms and nobody noticed any slowing.
