    Scanning blog post to trigger a sidebar result.

    Hi there,

    Something I would like to accomplish and I'm not sure how:

    Essentially I would like to have an automation setup to scan the blog content write up for specific words, that I've pre-defined with their definitions, which would result in a section on the sidebar to display the definition of said word.

    I am using the DIVI theme in wordpress using the divi theme builder for all posts. I will be writing content that will have words that most may not know the definition of and I'd like for them to display right there on the sidebar without them having to go to google every time.

    Any help on how to get this figured out I would very much appreciate you.

    Thank you !

    I've never seen a plugin for that feature. If you are hosting your wp site on your own webhost it might be possible. If you are hosting your site on the DIVI host, then I'm sure it's not possible. Somehow, when the post appears, a script has to scan it for all of the possible keywords. Most likely a custom PHP script would be needed to accomplish that.

    I'm sure it would be so much easier to write the posts with words most people know, or elaborate on word meanings within the text they are reading (not in the sidebar).
