New Video Class: Exploring Drupal’s Glossary View

Drupal Glossary View

If you need a listing of content based on the first letter in the title, you need a glossary. In this class, Robert demonstrates how to build a glossary from scratch.

He demonstrates the view, adding an attachment, a context and how to include all the letters even when there’s no content. He concludes the class up by looking at the glossary that comes with Views.

Interesting topic! Did not take the class yet, but I have a related question:

Is there any way or technique to create auto-links in nodes? I mean, an accompanying module/plugin that crawls nodes of a certain content type, and links found terms to the glossary entry. Optionally it might not be a link, but a a tooltip with term and description. Or a modal window/lightbox which loads the info via AJAX?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
