(!) I added a couple of terms to the glossary the other day and noticed that the link from on part of the glossary to another are broken. For example:

area control game

n. A type of game where players score for having the most pieces in particular areas of the board. Examples: El Grande, San Marco, Louis XIV. See majority control game.

So majority control game was another term defined within the dictionary and clicking on that link would jump to term.

Is this feature broken or has it been abandoned?

(2) For the Glossary would it be possible to create a tool that would convert the wiki page to HTML. Use menu list on page with A-Z laid out horizontally. Mousing over a letter would have a flyout list of terms that start with that letter.

The tool would automagically add See also: X, Y, and Z where those terms were defined within the glossary also. It would also be nice to have some hyperlink symbol after links thhat would open up another page rather than just spin on the glossary page, or use something like (↑).

Schedule the conversion once a day as a demon in the system.

It just seems that the TOC has gotten too long. Another option would be to float TOC as single letter.

Re: Glossary
I see that I had opened a bug thread on an aspect of this before where two words anchors wouldn't work.

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/260228/anchor-in-a-wiki-page...

However this doesn't work now for one word anchors as well.

(1)Open Glossary

(2) scroll down to this definition.

analysis paralysis (AP)

n. When overanalysis and mini/maxing increase the downtime in a game beyond a desirable level. Sometimes abbreviated as ap in the forums. (See also overanalyze)

(3) Click on overanalyze

Re: Bug in wiki markup / Example in Glossary
This is still broken. Thread moved from Wiki forum today.

In the example in the post above, "overanalyze" is listed in the toc. So you could link the work in other text to the definition of overanalyze.

Still broken. So markups within the wiki that jump to specific parts of another wiki page won't work.
