I would like to have a list version of my glossary that actually showed the images I've got in my definitions. As it is, images only show up when I click into an item. The things I am trying to explain are often easier demonstrated by a picture than words. I have a category list set up (category because I have one category for each language), but it shows me a long table format of the words and doesn't show any pictures. It doesn't show anything thatgives a person any reason to believe they can see pictures....
Is there a way to tweak this or could you add a plan in the future to create another type of display setup? I have figured out I could extend the number of characters shown so at least the list gives a better idea of what the definitions are. But I'd really like a list format that showed all the data that shows up in the individual word listing only in a category display. (For me everything is the word and the definition... i disabled display of everything else.
It will only be available at that link until I move it, but can for now give you an idea of the difference. The text is Danish so you won't be able to read it, but can see when the images show up. I've increased the size to 1000 so that it mostly shows the entire entry.

Thanks! It has definitely been a lot of working. And going from joomla 1.5 to joomla 3 has been a major change...
Gnosis has definitely saved me a lot of hassle with defining terms and linking to them (people don't always quite understand what they are trying to buy or why). I've got all of them linked off IDs now, so I am ready when I finally get around to translating the site. For now I am trying to get everything functional in one language, then I can think about translations.
Would it work in the pop-ups not to strip tags? Or could you consider in future development keeping pictures also for the plug-in portion if that might be possible. It would make more sense for people sometimes to have pictures and it is a little tricky to make them fully readable without other formatting (one had a list in it, so I had to strip the list formatting and number them manually as otherwise it all ran togehter confusingly).
It is a great help as it is, so just a thought to keep in mind for future development.
