Glossary

How about a context sensitive glossary, which underlines words (like arb, and carb, etc...) with some help text like a description or the unabbreviated meaning (so for arb - Anti Roll Bar - Suspention Component) when you hover your mouse over it.

Re: Glossary

Sounds good to me, although maybe there could be an option in User CP to turn it off, as I could see it pissing some people off

This idea gets "Two thumbs up" from me

Re: Glossary

Installed - but I don't know what words you want done... post ideas below, currently just FIAT done - and before people complain it looks dodgy, I know - I've already requested a feature where the box is only as wide as the text - so expect that soon.

(You can do just words to popup words, or words which popup to a link - so a link to Wiki or something...)

Oh and to disable it, go into the control panel > options (it's at the bottom)

Re: Glossary

Yeah, I've added one or two since (such as ePER ). I'll then create a "Glossary Page" which basically just lists all of them alphabetically....

So come on people, get those words rolling in
