Glossary of terms

Announcements
  • Seeing as I’m a veteran of the IT industry, I use a LOT of acronyms, terms, abbreviations etc when I write content for others in order to provide assistance. I realised that this could well become overwhelming for some users whilst they trawl Google looking for what those abbreviations etc mean.

    Well, not any more 🙂

    You can now hover over keywords, abbreviations, acronyms, and more, and it’ll give you an idea of what that term actually means or refers to…

    Some examples below

    Hopefully, this prevents the head scratching, and having to spend time looking up terms I use 😆

    Great feature mate 😁

  • @jac Thanks

  • This feature is being expanded upon - hopefully, there will be quite a library of terms that others may or will find useful

    I’m sure this will be helpful 😁.

  • Just a small update here. We now have 1500+ keywords enabled 🙂

  • Meh, this plugin is much ado ‘bout nothin’ from my perspective. Toss’s up too many off/erroneous glossary terms. Yeah, they may be correct. But the regex’s are matching greedily and flaggin’ lots of other words that merely contain the respective target sequence.

    But that is just me. By all means please do continue to enjoy if it floats your boat. ⛵

  • @gotwf The REGEX match should not be greedy - for example, I have it configured so that it only executes on case-sensitive. Admittedly, it may be flagging other words, and may not be perfect, but it’s a WIP presently and beneficial to those joining who may not be familiar with the abbreviations or acronyms I frequently use.

    I relented somewhat here and added another swatch - one I missed, which was previous called “blackout”. This specific one has been adapted to work on the new theming engine, but the others have been reclassified, and renamed to suit.

    As a result, the theme you might have had will probably be reflecting something else, so you (might) need to change your themes accordingly. The changes are as follows

    Light -> No Change
    Cloudy -> Is now the old “Dim”
    Dim -> Is now the old “Dark”
    Dark -> Now a new theme based on the revamped “Blackout”

    Already found 2 bugs, which have been committed to live code

    Relative path is provided in some instances, so a function now exists to return the full path instead so the image is rendered OGProxy does not target chat - this has been fixed

    @DownPW Yes, this is the general idea. I’m also in the process of putting together a welcome message to be displayed when a new user registers so they can explore all of the services on offer.

    Just coming back to this thread for review (as I often do), and it looks like Webdock have increased their available offerings - some are extremely powerful, yet very competitive from the pricing perspective.

    10 CPU cores, plus 20Gb RAM? Well worth a look (and the asking price) - there’s also a fixed IP which is hugely beneficial.

    Clearly, this is well beyond what most people will want to spend - it’s more of an example (but interestingly, Sudonix runs on something not too different from the above).

    However, not all that glitters is gold 😕 - just have a walk through the benchmark report I found below and you’ll see a huge difference between Heztner and Webdock

    https://www.vpsbenchmarks.com/compare/hetzner_vs_webdock

    That being said, the amount of HTTP requests that Webdock handles in relation to Hetzner is superior - @DownPW you might want to have a look at this - there’s a free 24 hour trial… 🙂
