Do you want to add a glossary or a
dictionary to your WordPress site? Well keep watching, in this video I’ll show you how to add a glossary on your site in WordPress. Having a glossary section on your site is a great way to explain industry topics to your customers or

general settings, from here you want to select the page that you want to display
all of the glossary terms on. If you don’t already have a page then you can
click generate page for glossary index and it’ll create one for you. You can
also set the permalink here, whether or not to show terms on single page or
posts, whether or not you want to highlight terms on pages or posts, or
make the term case sensitive. These defaults are good so let’s scroll down
and we’ll click Save Changes. Now that we have all that set up we need to go ahead

area, click add new. To start adding the glossary terms. Once you’re done adding
