Re: [revised aim] Glossary output with synonymous terms

‘copacetic‘ is not a word I’ve heard before and I had to look it up.

As a Native NA English speaker, you don’t hear it used a lot. I think it was actually popularized back in the 1960s. And in a song a few years ago.

And you just don’t get it
You keep it copacetic
And you learn to accept it
You know it’s so pathetic

Re: [revised aim] Glossary output with synonymous terms

Updated the glossary template with this piece:

<h2>Subcategories</h2>
<txp:category_list parent="groups" 
                   exclude="groups" 
                   wraptag="ul" 
                   break="li" 
                   class="catslist"  
                   sort="name desc">
        <a href="<txp:site_url />glossary/?c=<txp:category />"><txp:category title /></a>
</txp:category_list>

That made it consistent with the homepage groups list, thus easier to choose a different category if desired from the glossary section.

That does then beg for putting a <h2>Full List of [n] Entries</h2> above the full list part of the default view output, but it doesn’t appear I can easily do that with the default article tag behaviour as it is. It’s not a deal breaker, though, this is still better usability than it was, I think.

Also made a little front-end headway. It’s shaping up.

Cool! Not heard that either. Now I know how to drop it casually into a conversation ;-)

BTW: A bit of that video reminded me immediately of the cover of The Endless Shimmering by the Belfast band “And So I Watch You From Afar” (ASIWYFA for short: similarly loud, more melodious but without lyrics).
