Confluence Glossary

I would like to have a glossary in Confluence that automatically created tooltips for any words / acronymns on a page that existed in a central Glossary.

Has anyone extended any of the existing Glossary Plugins to do this?

I know Adaptavist was working on a similar plugin many many moons ago, but I don't think it got off the ground.

Has anyone got any ideas on where to start with this?

Looks like BUDICT is C4 compliant now. They have my thumbs up!

I know of a customer who were working closely with StepStone on a custom plugin to provide such funcitonality in Confluence. You mught want to reach out to StepStone for more details.

I have raised this question in the past and I think you (or someone else from Atlassian) recommended the same thing.

I spoke to StepStone at Summit 2010 and they were unable to help me. It seems their development is either private OR they never completed it.

Any other ideas are welcome.

Every other wiki, KB or CMS I used had something like this, but confluence not.
