Glossary auto-linking filter
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Glossary auto-linking filter.
Glossary auto-linking is a site Filter that will create links to a glossary activity entry where the word or phrase of the glossary entry is used within the same course in which the glossary is located. This includes forum postings, pages, labels etc.
Site Administration settings
Glossary auto-linking must be enabled by an administrator via Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Filters. This Filter can be enabled by selecting either On (where glossary entries will be by default auto-linked) or Off but available (where the option to use auto-linking is provided in the glossary activity settings).
Note: Enabling linking for the glossary does not automatically turn on linking for each entry - linking needs to be set for each entry individually.
In addition, you can apply this filter to Content or to Content and headings within a course. Please note applying filters to headings as well as content can greatly increase the load on your server. It is recommended to use the 'Apply to' settings sparingly. The main use is with the multilang filter.
Using the up/down arrows in the Order column you can specify the order in which each of the enabled Filters are applied.
