I am using the glossaries package a lot in my thesis. There are some entries which appear very frequently throughout the whole document. I would like to disable hyperlinking for these entries but keep it for all other entries.

I have tried putting \glsdisablehyper just before the frequent entries to no avail.

For these "frequently appearing" entries use the starred versions of glossaries' user commands (e.g. \gls*) which suppress hyperlinks.




    description={solution able to conduct electric current}}

    description={ratio of circumference of circle to its diameter},sort=pi}


Some text about \gls{electrolyte} and \gls*{pi}.

Is there anyway to disable them (from the command definition?), as I don't want to go through the document and change them all. Thanks for the answer by the way –  Wolfgang Kerzendorf Aug 17 '11 at 1:32
