Utilizing the WordPress Glossary plugin, you can establish an extensive glossary featuring terms with corresponding definitions. This powerful tool includes the tooltip WordPress plugin feature, allowing you to effortlessly present dynamic descriptions that activate when users hover over a term.

The CM Glossary Tooltip is a robust WordPress glossary plugin. It empowers you to establish an extensive knowledgebase of terms and their definitions on your website. This plugin operates by intelligently identifying glossary terms embedded within your posts or pages, incorporating links to a dedicated glossary page that offers detailed definitions for each term.

Upon hovering over the linked term, a tooltip instantly emerges, presenting users with a concise definition. Furthermore, the plugin generates an adaptable glossary index, cataloging all the terms scattered across your website, and granting users convenient access to their respective definitions.

The Pro editions include even more powerful features, such as: audio and video tooltips, Wikipedia support, Google Translate and Merriam-Webster integrations, ChatGPT integration, support for abbreviations and variations, multiple glossaries support, multiple index templates and much more.
