A plugin to define acronyms in pages, posts and comments using
abbr mark-up. Defined acronyms are underlined, and the definition appears as a tool-tip if the cursor is placed over the acronym. The list of acronyms is managed through an Admin interface.
This plugin is based on Chris Cox’s Acronyms-2, which was itself based on Joel Bennett’s Acronym Replacer plugin (http://www.huddledmasses.org/), ported to Nucleus CMS by Joel Pan as the NP_Acronym plugin and now ported back to WordPress.
The basic tool: when an acronym used in the website appears in the acronym library, it is underlined. If the user scrolls over the acronym, it is defined in the tooltip under the mouse cursor.
The glossary printout. Can be included on any page or post using the shortcode [glossary].
Widget for adding acronyms to the library.
View of the management page, which is found under ToolsAcronym Manager.
