Glossary auto-linking filter

From MoodleDocs

The Glossary auto-linking filter creates a link to a glossary activity entry whenever the word or phrase is used elsewhere in the course, such as in forum posts, labels or page resources. The link triggers a popup displaying the Concept and Definition. If more than one entry has the same "Concept" string, the first one will be linked.

Enabling the Glossary auto-linking filter

  1. If enabled, a teacher can turn the filter on (or off) in the course or a particular activity via the Filters link in the administration block.

Note: Enabling the Glossary auto-linking filter does not automatically turn on linking for each glossary entry. In the glossary settings, 'Automatically link glossary entries' should be set to Yes, and the checkbox 'This entry should be automatically linked' should be ticked for each glossary entry.

Site administration settings

  1. An administrator must enable the Glossary auto-linking filter in Site administration > Plugins > Filters. See Managing filters for more details.
