- The glossary auto-linking filter should be enabled by an administrator in Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Filters > Manage filters.
- Each glossary entry should have the "This entry should be automatically linked" box checked.
How can I delete a glossary entry attachment?
Simply delete the glossary entry and add a new one.
In Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Filters > Common filter settings, set filteruploadedfiles to "All files" or "HTML files only".
If you don't want particular text to be linked (in a Forum post, say) then:
- In Edit mode, locate and click the Toggle HTML Source button on the formatting toolbar (appears as '<>' symbol)
- Locate the piece of text you want to exempt from autolinking
- Before and after the text respectively, add <nolink> and </nolink>.
- Save and check.
- In Settings > Quiz administration > Filters turn the glossary auto-linking filter off
- Click the 'Save changes' button
How can I make a glossary "read only" for students?
- In Settings>Glossary administration>Permissions, set the Create new entries capability for Student to Prevent. (screenshot in forum thread thanks to Joseph Rézeau)
How do I import entries from another glossary?
I am frustrated trying to import my old images glossary into my new glossary with XML
Here is a workaround, there has to be an easier way but
- Create a webfolder that you can link to. For example call it "images"
- Add images to that folder
- Export your XML file and edit it
- Change the src="@@PLUGINFILE@@/ to something line src="Mydomain.edu/images/ for every entry in the file.
- Save the XML file with a different name
- Import that new XML file into your new glossary
Now when you use the course import feature, your glossary will work in the new course.
