Thanks

It looks quite good.

Just need to work out how to make it use my site theme as it comes up in a red colour.

Hi

Wordbook works, but its internal structure is crap. There are a lot of unnecessary sql queries. Better take dictionary by Peter Nagl.

Re: Looking for Glossary module

Hi

You shound turn off the "glossary-in-glossary" Function for the dictionary which highlights dictionary words in the dictionary text. This gives a complexity of

n * k

where n is the number of displayed items per page and k is the number of glossary items. Its easy to show that this will crash your server if the number of words in the glossary grows to a number > 1000.
