The glossary module is a powerful tool making internal linking easy and smart. In a special editor you can define your terms which are replaced automatically with a link to the defined page.

But the glossary is not only useful for internal linking, it's also perfect for explaining abbreviations.

How it Works

Open the glossary editor Tools Tools -> Glossary and define some terms.

Glossary grid

Then you have to define one or more regions in your views, telling the glossary where you want it to replace your terms.

old way (Deprecated):

{% pimcoreglossary %}
    {{ pimcore_wysiwyg('content', { height: 200 }) }}
{% endpimcoreglossary %}

or use glossary Twig filter:

{% apply pimcore_glossary %}
    {{ pimcore_wysiwyg('content', { height: 200 }) }}
{% endapply %}

Now the output of the WYSIWYG field will look like this.

And the HTML-markup will look like, below.

    <abbr title="Hypertext Preprocessor">PHP</abbr> is a widely used, general-purpose scripting language that was originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. For this purpose, <abbr title="Hypertext Preprocessor">PHP</abbr> code is embedded into the HTML source document and interpreted by a web server with a <abbr title="Hypertext Preprocessor">PHP</abbr> processor module, which generates the web page&nbsp; document. As a general-purpose programming language, <abbr title="Hypertext Preprocessor">PHP</abbr> code is processed by an interpreter application in command-line mode performing desired operating system operations and producing program output on its standard output channel. It may also function as a graphical application. <abbr title="Hypertext Preprocessor">PHP</abbr> is available as a processor for most modern web servers and as standalone interpreter on most operating systems and computing platforms. You can <a href="http://www.php.net/">download</a> it free at php.net.

Since the glossary depends on languages you'll have to register a language first.
