In the eCommerce edition of the CM Tooltip Glossary plugin it is possible to select and enable a Wikipedia API and add it to the term page and to the tooltip content.

How does the plugin display the content generated by the Wikipedia API?

The content taken from Wikipedia is generated automatically and can also include images, tables and all other content that was originally included in the Wikipedia term definition.

Info: Due to the huge amounts of content in most of the Wikipedia pages we only display the first section which usually includes the most general data. If the content displayed for a term is not satisfying it’s possible to turn off the Wikipedia API output on the manually on each of the term pages.
