Instalación automática

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you do not need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Encyclopedia, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click «Add New».

In the search field type «Encyclopedia» and click «Search Plugins». Once you have found this plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking «Install now».

Instalación manual

The manual installation method involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Las actualizaciones automáticas deberían funcionar sin problemas; pero como siempre, antes haz copia de seguridad solo por asegurar.


How do I embed the archive page in my website?

Go to Design -> Menus and open the Encyclopedia box. Switch to the «View All» tab. There you can find the index page you can add to the menu of your choice.

How do I create relations between my Encyclopedia items?

To create relations between your items you need to classify your items by using tags.

Can Encyclopedia display and sort items in other than Latin characters?

Yes, Encyclopedia can handle every existing character. All strings are handled as UTF-8. So it works for Arabian, Russian, Chinese, Turkish, and all other UTF-8 compliant languages.

Is it possible to search for Encyclopedia items only?

Yes, it is. For this purpose place the «Encyclopedia Search» Widget in a sidebar of your choice. The search result will display Encyclopedia items only.

What can I do when I have problems with installing or setting up the Encyclopedia?

First of all read the installation guide on this site. Follow the guide step by step. If you do so and still have problems, there could be an incompatibility with another plugin: Deactivate all other plugins, try to install/set up Encyclopedia again. If it works re-activate plugin by plugin again to see which one causes the problem. If you need personal assistance or coaching or if you want me to install and set up Encyclopedia on your website, please contact me via support form on my website (this is a business service and you need to buy the support package to make use of it).

Does Encyclopedia display tooltips when hovering linked items in my contents?

Maybe: The linked encyclopedia items have a title tag which displays the excerpt of the description. If you hover it with your mouse you can see it. If your theme supports tooltips it will show the description as tooltip. If you need this implemented please use my support form.

The developer claims to offer support but does not respond to emails. The plugin in is very rigid. You can only format it a little bit, otherwise you have to be an expert coder to adapt it properly to your site.

It's basically a paid only version. It's limited to 12 entries and this make the plugin not usable. It's just an advertising. Additionally paid version costs 49 euro that makes one of the most expensive one. Save time, don't donwload.

When I originally posted this review I said . . . This plugin does exactly what I need it to do . . . exactly! The only part that is frustrating is the lack of documentation/examples. Yes, I want to be lead by the hand, so sue me. Love the plugin, hate the documentation. Now that I've paid for the pro version I'm updating my review to a two star rating. I think reviews that say "it sucks" or "it's bad" aren't of much use so I'm taking the time to tell you why it's not worth five stars. The logical approach to a lexicon/encyclopedia app/plugin is to display a prefix filter and restrict the index of terms to the selected prefix. This plugin does not do that. Plugin users have the choice of displaying all terms in the index or arbitrarily choosing the number of terms displayed. If the list of terms is restricted, the terms displayed are not going to start with whatever was chosen in the prefix filter. Yup, if you choose "K" in the prefix filter, the index is still going to show "A" items. Charming. The index will always show, starting at "A", either the full index (in my case 1987 items) or it will show, again starting at "A", the number of items chosen in the widget. Yup, it's really that bad. If you choose this plugin, know that you will have to wait seconds to minutes to have the next feature of the plugin available for use or you will get a 404 error. Excerpts shown in the archive page are going to be full length. You will need an additional plugin (Advanced Excerpt) to trim the excerpt length to something reasonable. If your terms run to pages of information, without an additional plugin to manage excerpt length the entire definition of the term will be displayed. Again, charming (not). If you've read any other less than five star reviews you'll quickly realize the documentation sucks. Truly. It's woefully inadequate and misses the total concept of "how to". And finally, the plugin is easily overwhelmed/disabled by themes. Yup, it doesn't work with all themes. If you're stuck test driving this sucker and need a theme that will work, Bootstrap Basic4 works. You can add to the theme's layout by using the Nimble plugin. The premise of this theme is awesome. Unfortunately, it doesn't live up to its promise. The logical function isn't what's happening here.

No E-Mail Support. Only support through tickets what is ok. BUT if you don´t type all informations into the ticket, INCLUDING YOUR ADMIN OR FTP ACCOUNT to your WP they will charge you 39€ per each missed information in the ticket! This means by fact NO SUPPORT! Even if you paid for the pro version. But to go there you have to agree that your storno right ist deleted. But you need support because the doku is so poor. And if you try to dispute at PayPal, the plugin-publisher will charge you 79€, "as agreed in terms and conditions"... So this is all legal but imagine the mindset of these guys... Over all this are very bad people with a very bad mindset and I don´t want them to be part of my projects. I deleted the plugin. Have fun with my money! UPDATE: You´d better try "CM Tooltip Glossary" from CreativeMinds. This is what I use now. Good people, good plugin!

My client wanted to show a dictionary on the site and this was just perfect! The customer service has been great when I have been stuck, couldn't recommend it more!
14 de septiembre de 2020
Ich hatte heute Nachmittag eine wirklich unerfreuliche Korrespondenz mit Herrn Hoppe. Mein Webdesigner hat eine relativ unkomplizierte Anfrage gestellt, die in der (immerhin schnellen) Rückmeldung resultierte, dass man beim Ausfüllen der Supportanfrage nicht genau genug gewesen sei und deshalb vor Überweisung einer Gebühr von 39 Euro kein weiterer Support mehr geleistet werden würde (die Rechnung wurde gleich mitgeliefert). Um das Problem zu verdeutlichen: Ein kostenloser Support über die ersten 12 Monate sind im Kauf des Plugins enthalten (was Herr Hoppe auch auf Nachfrage zugibt). Nur leider entscheidet Herr Hoppe, dass dies nur gilt, wenn man bei der initialen Anfrage alle Daten (inkl. Zugangsdaten zur eigenen Homepage (!!!), Screenshots, und diverse nur für Profis verständliche Informationen) mitliefert. Im Laufe des Emailwechsels stellte sich heraus, dass Herr Hoppe Supportanfragen nicht als Teil einer schon vorab bezahlten Leistung sieht, sondern als lohnendes Geschäftsmodell, mit dem nach dem Kauf weitere Einnahmen erzielt werden können. Das erklärt auch die sehr basal ausgestattete Dokumentation seines Plugins, die es geradezu herausfordert den Support bemühen zu müssen. Ich kann daher vom Kauf dieses Plugins nur abraten. Ich werde es umgehend von meiner Website löschen, da ich keine weitere Arbeit in dieses Tool investieren möchte. Bei jeder weiteren Supportanfrage würde ich mich ja dumm und dämlich zahlen. Falls Sie einen professionellen Ton in den Emails erwarten - das ist vom "weltbesten Wrodpressprogrammierer" zuviel verlangt. Als Dienstleister stehen mir da alle Haare zu Berge. Nachtrag: Versucht man bei Paypal ein Problem zu melden um sein Geld für das Plugin zuerhalten kommt folgende Nachricht: Schwarzklee UG & Co. KG Dennis Hoppe Nachricht von Schwarzklee UG & Co. KG Service Fee: 79 Euro | Gebühr: 79 Euro inkl. USt. As agreed in the general terms and conditions we will charge you a service fee of 79.- Euro including VAT/GST for each dispute. Warning: You will not be able to access your account, prolong your license or download any products afterwards. - - - - - - - - - - - Wie in den Geschäftsbedingungen mit Ihnen vereinbart, werden wir pro eröffneten Fall eine Bearbeitungsgebühr in Höhe von 79,- Euro inkl. der gesetzlichen Umsatzsteuer in Ihrem Land in Rechnung stellen. Sie werden nach dem Öffnen eines Konfliktes keinen Zugriff mehr auf Ihre Kundenkonten haben und keine Produkte mehr verlängern oder herunterladen können; auch nicht, nachdem der Konflikt geschlossen wurde. UPdate: Mittlerweile hat Herr Hoppe meinen Account gesperrt, sodass ich das ohnehin schon schreckliche Plugin nicht mehr updaten kann. Natürlich hat er das aufgrund der schlechten Referenz gemacht, denn die Lizenz war noch für 5 Monate gültig. Ich kann nicht nachvollziehen warum dieser unseriöse Anbieter nicht gesperrt wird.
