about the glossary

The glossary collects frequently used terms of the vvvv universe as well as other related universes that we don't want to explain on different pages all over this website.

using the glossary

When writing/editing a wiki-page and you are using a term from the glossary you can mark it like this:
((glossary:patch))
(There is also a shortcut-button for this markup among the format options when you're editing a wiki-page!)

which will make it show up on your wiki-page as:
patch
Here you see that the term has now a ? attached indicating that on mouse-over you get a tooltip-explanation about that term. If you click on it you'll be directed to a page with more detailed information on the term.

Instead of marking every single occurance of a term on a site with the glossary-link-syntax consider always only marking the first occurance of that term per page, or on very large pages, per paragraph to avoid visual clutter.

adding a new term to the glossary

You can add new terms to the glossary via the new term button on the glossary page. With a term you can enter plural terms so that you don't have to register the term patch and the term patches as two different terms. And you can assign a link that people will be directed to when clicking on the term.
