What is vBulletin Glossary?
With this glossary you can create a directory of terms with detailed explanations. The common look of this system contains different categories with various entries.
How does vBulletin Glossary look?
The glossary uses several different categories (eg. for different topics) which contain entries (eg. with detailed explanations).
On the glossary's main page you will find a category overview and statistics with the number of entries and attachments. You can see which user has written the last entry.
How to start?
Click on the category name and you will be forwarded to the entries in this category. An entry contains a keyword and a detailed explanation.
To create a new entry, click on the button 'New entry' (maybe you need special permissions for this as the administrator can restrict this function).
Entries can be sorted in various ways. Normally they are sorted alphabetically. You can change this easily by clicking in the table headers (entry, created on, created by, last edit) in the way you want it to be displayed. By clicking on the small arrow in the table headers you can revert the display order.
If there are many entries in a category then a pagination box will be displayed. You can easily switch the pages with this function.
This is a common vBulletin function and is used on many different places on your forum.
How can I read an entry?
To read an entry just click on the title. Every single entry was created by a user or guest. You may find some information about the author above the entry.
There are several functions, if enabled, when viewing an entry. If you can't see these buttons you are not logged in or you don't have permission to use them.
If you already know which category you want to view, you can use the 'Jump to' menu at the end of most pages within the glossary.
I want more information about the author!
To gain more information about an author you can click on the username to be forwarded to the author's userprofile..
