Creating a Glossary for a WP site

Posted June 14, 2022 in
Tips & Resources Tips & Resources
I was torn over whether to post this in the Content community but figured I'd try here since I'm looking for a tip and resource :-) 

Way back in the day when I worked at an agency, I just came up with the ideas and our inhouse developer figured out how to implement them :-) 

Out on my own, I need to provide more details.

I've wanted to add a glossary to my WP site for a long time but haven't found a plugin that's easy to use for me and for the user.

I could just create a page and add the terms in a giant list, then try to add links from a post or page directly to that definition on the Glossary page. But I was wondering if any of you have found a more elegant solution. 

Thanks.

Winnie Anderson have you explored a Learning Center for your website? It sounds like you're looking for an easy way for visitors to your website to easily navigate and find the resources or content they're looking for. Does that sound about right?

Yep! That's exactly what I'm doing. I've got a page as the main Learning Center page and then off of that are things like the blog, interviews I've done, etc. and I thought a glossary would be a good thing too. One thing people tend to thank me for is not assuming they know the jargon of marketing. Plus it's a great SEO tool :-)

A glossary is a very interesting idea  Winnie Anderson ! Have you considered an accordion element to display this type of content? It would be similar to what a lot of sites do for FAQ. Check out what we have here on our site, which is in addition to our Learning centre. FAQ - Farm Shed Project Questions & Answers - Action Steel

Thanks for sharing that link  Lester Urquhart . That looks really good. 

WAY back in the day when I worked for an agency, I just had the developer lay it out in almost dictionary type of format. I'm guessing he did it in a type of table. But I like this layout and I'm sure most builders have this type of feature. That would be easier than trying to deal with a plugin.
