Default *NEW* Glossary Addon!

I have setup a new addon on RouterForums.com which integrates a user contributed glossary into the forum community.

At the top of the page (top nav) you can visit the new glossary by clicking the "Glossary" link which is in between "Members List" and "New Posts".

Basically, the way this works is, anyone is permitted to add entries into the glossary. When submitting an entry you're required to provide:

Entry Title: The name of the word you're trying to define.

Example: "Bullnose"

Entry Description: The definition of your selected word.

Example: "router bit that puts a rounded edge on a piece of work - commonly used for the front edge on a counter top"

Remember, anyone can submit entries into the glossary, so please be sure that when you're submitting an entry that it is 100% accurate and a correct description of the word you have picked.

What else does it do?

Well, ANY terms that are in the Glossary automatically translate over to ALL posts on RouterForums.com. Meaning, if the word "Bullnose" is in the glossary (as it is, I added it). It will appear as a LINK in every post / thread that the word "Bullnose" is mentioned. When you highlight that link, it will popup with the definition of that word!

Like so: Bullnose <- Highlight it and see the definition!!

The previous glossary is now gone, but I do still have the terms from it. They will have to manually be inputted into this new glossary, if anyone is interested in helping with that, I created a post of the old terms which need to be re-inputted into the new glossary. You are permitted to copy + paste the entry title and description of those definitions. Any new definitions you're required to write your own unique definition.

******** NOTE ********
All entries are moderated, meaning that if you submit a term to be entered into the glossary, it will NOT instantly appear, I personally have to approve it. Which will take a maximum of 24-48 hours to happen. So do not panic if your term does not get instantly added.

Removed the glossary script due to minor issues with the software.
