    Thank you very much for the plugin! And good luck with the new version!

    Thanks for sharing your plugins Ruben!

    I have two questions regarding “Explanatory Dictionary”:

    1. If the word is several times in the same page, will the tooltip be added to all or only the first?

    2. I have used the ABBR html tag to some of my posts to explain some words, it I add your plugin for the same words, will the tooltip be added to the already explained words or will this plugin add tooltips to words inside tags (like in the title of IMG-tags)?


  3. Dear Ruben,

    great plugin, thank you for your work.

    I did not find – maybe i missed it in the comments? – a way to put links to other pages of my site or external websites in the explanations.

    Is there a way? If not, that would be my suggestions for next version ;-)

    Kind regards, Viktor

    A nice feature for which I see no mention of is to allow multiple keywords/phrases for the same definition. For example I would want to have the same explanation for liberalism, classical liberalism, libertarianism.

  5. I love your wp theme, do you get a hold of it from? Thanks in advance!

    First of all, I am sorry for delayed answers and thank JDB who answer some questions.

    Jerrold, you cannot export the dictionary from admin panel. I can explain how to do it programmatically if you want.

    Peter and JDB, I want to update my plugins, but I am very very busy and have no time (even on weekends) to do it. :( But I decide to update some of my plugin in July.

    Sandra, sorry, but I need to see your problem. Can you provide me a link where I can see it?

    tamir, good suggestion and maybe it will be included in the new version too.

  7. Daniel Hauca says:

    Sven, you can set how many times you want the word be shown from the plugin options page (option “Limit”). But what about your second question, sorry but I didn’t understand it.

    Viktor, it is impossible and I’ll try to include that feature in one of the next versions.

    Albert Rubio, good suggestion.

    My wp theme is Mortgage (http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/mortgage).

    Thank you all.
