Description: If your users do like abbreviations, you might like this plugin.
It allows the admin to add common abbreviations and a explanation of these abbreviations in Admin CP and these explanations will be displayed if a user hovers over an abbreviation in a post.
For better understanding, this is the original request by Disciple of Nagash, credits to him.
You can of course use this for any help text or something else too.
- fully language compatible using language files (english and german language included!)
- settings as known from all of my plugins
- complete new ACP page at the configuration tab
Note: If you do add a lot of abbreviations, it might slow down your forum. Decrease the ammount if you feel that sites are loading slower.

Inside the ZIP-Archive you will find several folders, upload all of them to your MyBB-root. Install+Activate the plugin.
Then you should see a new menu item under config in ACP called "Abbreviations". Add new abbreviations there.
At the end, don't forget to adjust the settings to your needs!
Upgrade to version 1.2:
Backup your database table mybb_abbreviations. Uninstall the plugin. Overwrite all files with the new ones from the archive. Install the plugin again. Import the database table with your stored abbreviations. Set up the plugin like described.
