How to Create and Manage Your Website Glossary and Add Custom Terms

When you have your website delivered, it will include a 'Finance and Property Glossary' at yourDomain/resources/mortgage-glossary, and it will be accessible via the 'Resources' menu and various other locations. Depending on whether we set the website up for you, or you chose to set it up yourself, the glossary may or may not exist on your website, so it's worth checking.

Out of the box, the Glossary includes more than 180 terms, and you have the facility to easily create and edit your own terms. Unlike difficult-to-manage glossary you're familiar with, ours isn't built into a clunky and static WordPress plugin - it's all available from Yabber and integrates with various other applications.

Creating a glossary from scratch takes around 2 minutes. This FAQ will details how the Glossary is managed.

Overlap with Glossary Post Terms: There is significant overlap between this module and that of Glossary Post Terms (or text in a post that automatically carries a tooltip popup with a definition). The Glossary Post Terms is introduced in an FAQ titled "How to Create Website Glossary Tooltip Terms in Yabber" and should be ready in company with this FAQ.

  Locating the Glossary Module in Yabber

You will find the Glossary module in Yabber by selecting the small 'info' link in the 'Website' module. You should then select the 'Glossary' submenu item.

Glossary Navigation

  Pictured: You will find the Glossary module in Yabber by selecting the small 'info' link in the 'Website' module. You should then select the 'Glossary' submenu item.

  Populating Default Glossary Terms

If you navigate to the Glossary 'Review' panel and it's empty, it's likely that you website glossary will also be empty. Your 'Review' panel and website will effectively look like this.

Glossary and Website Empty Glossary

  Pictured: If you navigate to the Glossary 'Review' panel and it's empty, it's likely that you website glossary will also be empty.

If empty, we're starting from scratch, and that's find - it'll only take about a couple of minutes to create a full glossary. The first thing to note is the larger arrow points to a green form button that'll populate your glossary with over 180 default terms and definitions. You should select this option and refresh the page. After you submit the button a message will be returned  indicating how many terms were imported.

Your glossary table will now be populated with terms that you may review and edit to your liking. We'll come back to this.

  Styling the Full Page Glossary

Before we send our glossary terms to our website, we'll need to first create a style for the full glossary page, and this is managed via the 'Page Style' panel. The panel provides the style options that'll be applied to the Glossary page; it includes colour, layout, alphabetical headings etc. The style panel provides for an accordion style glossary (pictured as an inset) or text glossary, but the latter is almost always used. The accordion glossary is more of a gimmick and does nothing but piss off those that use it (do use the text format unless you have a good reason).

Glossary Page Style Create

  Pictured: We'll need to first create a style for the full glossary page, and this is managed via the 'Page Style' panel. The panel provides the style options that'll be applied to the Glossary page; it includes colour, layout, alphabetical headings etc. Create the glossary in text format and include the alphabetical heading unless you have reasons to exclude it. Ensure you give your style a descriptive name for reference later on. The inset shows the options for an accordion glossary, defined by selecting 'Accordion Glossary Format'.

Ensure you give your style a descriptive name for reference later on.

  Sending the Glossary to Your Website

We'll now send the glossary and applicable style to our website via the 'Send' panel. We'll select our website, the style to be applied to the full page glossary, and the style to be applied to post terms (the latter should probably be defined before sending).

Send Glossary to Website

  Pictured: We'll now send the glossary and applicable style to our website via the 'Send' panel. We'll select our website, the style to be applied to the full page glossary, and the style to be applied to post terms (the latter should probably be defined before sending).

Once the glossary is sent, the full Glossary page  will be populated with default terms.

  Adding New Terms to the Glossary

There's no limit to the number of new terms you may add to your glossary. To create a term, navigate to the 'Glossary' panel and create a terms and description. Click 'Save'. The term will show in your 'Review' panel.

Create Glossary Term

  Pictured: To create a term, navigate to the 'Glossary' panel and create a terms and description. Click 'Save'. The term will show in your 'Review' panel.

You should update your website glossary terms for the newly added term to be shown.

  Review and Edit Terms

The 'Review panel is important. From the 'Review' panel you may selectively enable and disable terms that'll display on your website. As we describe in our FAQ on Post Glossary Terms (or text that carries a definition tooltip), you may want some terms to show in your glossary and not as tooltip links in text and visa versa (in fact, you'll limit the in-post glossary text to probably no more than a dozen terms), and we use the 'Review' panel to selectively enable and disable where and how terms will be displayed. By default, all created terms are added to your full page Glossary.

Review Glossary Terms

  Pictured: The 'Review panel is important. From the 'Review' panel you may selectively enable and disable terms that'll display on your website. As we describe in our FAQ on Post Glossary Terms (or text that carries a definition tooltip), you may want some terms to show in your glossary and not as tooltip links in text and visa versa (in fact, you'll limit the in-post glossary text to probably no more than a dozen terms), and we use the 'Review' panel to selectively enable and disable where and how terms will be displayed. By default, all created terms are added to your full page Glossary.

The large arrow indicates the toggle switch to enable and disable terms for your full page glossary, while the smaller arrow indicates active terms for your in-post glossary text (note that very few terms are active for in-post evaluation).

The 'Review' panel also provides a summary of created styles. Selecting any green icon returns a full summary the stylistic attributes, while selecting the edit icon returns you to a page where you may edit that resource. Since Yabber is a multi-website system, if making any edits you will be required to send that data to your website via the 'Send' panel (with changes taking effect immediately).

  The Result

It only seems appropriate to share a full screenshot of the resulting Glossary (albeit as a low-quality image).

Finance and Property Glossary

  Pictured: The glossary as it'll appear on your website. We've used the textual style with and Alphabetical index.

Note the Simple Panel subscription form assigned to the top of the page. This is because every page on your website is an organic entry point to your website, so every p age requires a lead magnet and subscription form. Assign via the 'Form Assignment Panel'.
