Show Glossary Category Index Attributes

In the CM Tooltip Glossary version 2.7.3 we have developed the support for this shortcode adding options to control the heading which appears above.

Now the shortcode supports following set of attributes:

  • cat – name of the category you want to show the list for
  • disable_listnav – controls whether the alphabetical list navigation should be shown for the shortcodes (default: 0)
  • title_prefix – displays the text which will appear in the heading
  • title_category – controls whether the category title should appear in the heading (default: 1 – show the category title)
  • title_show – controls whether to show the heading – setting this to 0 means the heading won’t be displayed at all (default: 1 – show heading)
  • related (Pro+/Ecommerce) – you can use this attribute to show “up to X” related articles on Glossary Index List. Note: It only works for the Glossary Index List views displaying the description. The list of related articles will be rendered under the description, or instead of it (see attribute “no_desc”).
  • no_desc (Pro+/Ecommerce) – you can use this attribute (add no_desc=”1″) to disable the descriptions on Glossary Index List
  • hide_terms (Pro+/Ecommerce) – you can use this attribute (add hide_terms =”1″) to stop the Glossary Terms from being displayed on the Glossary Index list (e.g. if you want to make a list of only the synonyms or abbreviations)
  • hide_abbrevs (Pro+/Ecommerce) – you can use this attribute (add hide_abbrevs =”1″) to stop the Glossary Term abbreviations from being displayed on the Glossary Index list (e.g. if you want to make a list of only the terms or abbreviations)
  • hide_synonyms (Pro+/Ecommerce) – you can use this attribute (add hide_synonyms=”1″) to stop the Glossary Term synonyms from being displayed on the Glossary Index list (e.g. if you want to make a list of only the terms or abbreviations)
