  1. I would like to put the keyword in the alt=”Keyword” attribute of an image and have it work like a keyword in text. That means define the keyword like any other and have the tooltip display what is in the edit box. In other words, make the alt= entry the keyword NOT the contents of the tooltip.

    • Tomas.Zhu says:

      Hi George,

      Thanks for the message, sorry I have a little confusion, if we use alt = keyword, how we show our “value” of the tooltip content? Maybe you can show me a simple screeshot or more detailed text for some simple example so I can understand your better? Thanks, have a nice day. :)

    Hi Tomas,
    Great plugin. I have one problem. I’m using feedburner so people can subscribe to my posts via email. In the feedburner email sent to the subscriber for each post, all the words in the post that have a tooltip show the underlining dots so large and vertically elongated that it blocks the view of the words below the tooltip word. I could forward you an email so you could see, but I can’t seem to find your email address, nor can I figure a way to include it in these comments.

    Thank you!!

    Sorry, i use WordPress Version 3.5.2 not 3.6

    • Tomas.Zhu says:

      Hi Daniel

      Thanks for the messages, In my hosting after upgrade it works well, I tried to searched the google and wordpress support forum, I do found some brother said blank line maybe will caused some problem in some hosting?

      The reason of the blank line problem is because from this version I followed wordpress suggestion to add license information(http://codex.wordpress.org/Writing_a_Plugin#License), I fully copy the wordpress license texts, so I guess this part texts should have no problem and the problem is caused the blank line.

      I had rewrite a new version of tooltips plugin, in which I remove the blank line which after “?>” and before “

      Best Regards,
      Tomas

  11. Firefly says:

    The new version of the plugin messes up with the human_time_diff function (that shows the time of the posts in the form of ” published 10 minutes ago”). When updated, the plugin makes every post in the site to show the same time – as if the same posts are published 10 minutes ago.

    Is there a way to fix it? If not, where I can download the previous version of the plugin? Thank you.

    Stupid question probably, but how do I add a particular tooltip to a page or post? Is there a shortcode to insert tooltips?

    Is there anyway to specify the tool tip on some images and not all images that contain an alt title. At the minute the tooltip is appearing on all my images. I only want it to appear on some. Can you help?

    • Tomas.Zhu says:

      Hi, thanks for the message, yes, the old version will not show all alt as tooltips, there are some guy requested and said this is more easier to use, I guess this is a wrong way, I will try to find a way to allow users to choose, but if so this will make the plugin too “complex”, I hate “complex” solution, I believe it need be a very simple and very easy to use, once get a idea will write a new version, thanks for the suggestion again.

  40. Kim says:

    Hi – Thank you for a fantastic plugin…It was exactly what I was looking for!

    I don’t know anything about coding, but is there a way to remove the tooltip when it hovers over images (I am just using the hover over words tool)? As currently it displays the image title when you hover over an image (when there isn’t something in the ALT) and for my site that isn’t needed.

    Any help would be great! Thank you again.

    I try to embed a video from Vimeo.com as iframe code in autoplay mode… Everything works ok until I switch to a different Tab in my Safari. My video starts to continue playing. When I switch back to the Tab with my wordpress and I mouseover my tag, than I can see the Vimeo player continues playing. Althought the Tooltip disapeard, but the vimeo player plays the video in the bacground (as hidden object). Is there a chance to “repair” it?

    • Tomas.Zhu says:

      Hi, I understand when you move mouse to the video tooltips, the video will begin play, this is not the problem of tooltips plugin, you should copy the vimeo video code which not play automatically, so everything will be okay.

  42. karim says:

    Hi, thanks for this great plugin ;-)

    I’ve tested several tool tip plugins, and this one is really near to what I’m looking for.

    Compared to Glossy,
    1. I don’t need to edit older posts because tooltips works automagically ;-) This is really cool if you have an older blog with lots of articles.

    2. On the other hand, my posts will be filled up with tool tips… (i.e. every occurance of the word). With Glossy I can decide where to put the tooltip.

    3. I also don’t have to edit my posts at all.

    4. Theres no [gs tooltip_this], so my article remains clean (good for export etc).

    5. I’m not quite sure what Google says about [bla keyword].

    6. Unfortunately, Tooltip only shows the tip. With Glossy, I can put my cursor into the box and click on a link or mark/copy text

    questions/suggestions:

    1. How do I create a glossary (list of tooltip entries)in the frontend (Would be great, if sorted alphabetically, and if it would have a clickable alphabetical index, entries should also be found by search engine and internal search function)

    2. It would also be great if you could make it use of Tippy (like Glossy does). This produces nice, customizable boxes with a link title and a close button.

    thanks again, keep up your good work ;-)

  43. Adam says:

    Ooh, and is there a way to style the triggering word? I’d like to lose the dotted line beneath.

  44. Adam says:

    First, thanks for sharing this great plugin.

    Now, one problem I’m having is the tooltip extends past the right end of the page when the rollover item is close to the right border. Is there a workaround for that?

  45. Jeffrey says:

    Problem:

    If I enter a phrase/multiple words (example: chocolate chip cookie), no tooltip is displayed.

    Can you help me?

    Regards,
    Jeffrey

    • Tomas.Zhu says:

      sorry for hear the problem, but if you check my sites you can find it works will, if you entered the both of the words and tooltips, it should works well.

  46. Kursti says:

    What do you do after you create a keyword and a content entry for a tooltip?

  51. Michael says:

    Hi Thomas,

    great plugin. Is there a way we could import a large CSV-list of words (a glossary) instead of entering them manually?
    I’ve looked at the SQL, but you’re using just one field for all entries, so reformatting our CSV is not really an option.

    Any help or pointers would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Michael

  55. Mark says:

    I have created the tool tip in the tooltip module,but there are no instructions on how to apply it. This tooltip is simply text that I need on an “I agree” text form. How can I put my tool tip on “I Agree”?

  56. KDAS says:

    Hey Thomas,

    great plugin, I love it! I’m just wondering, if there will ever be a function to sort the tooltips in the administration menu by name? It doesn’t need to be automatically, a button to click it which sorts them on-demand might be an easier solution. Is there a chance to make it happen?

    Thanks for your great work!

    Hi,
    Thanks a lot for this plugin. It is really a good one!
    Even group of word can be used! :)
    I would suggest three improvements:
    – order the Tooltips alphabetically (by keywords)
    – make the simple quote character allowed in keywords (eg. Let’s try)
    – be able to turn the plugin off for a list of posts (ideally having “Include in” and “Exclude ni” fields.
    Cheers

  69. Mike says:

    Hmm.. the code is missing. I will try to insert it now with backslash, so please accept my appologies for the content of the first comment:

    `
    ID; ?>

    array( ‘Thumbnail’ ), ‘size’ => ‘excerpthumb’ ) ) .’
    [/tooltip]‘); ?>

    `

  70. Mike says:

    Dear Sirs,

    I would love to use your plugin to add some additional functionality to our web present theme. What I am trying to achieve is to insert a tooltip on every post thumbnail image in which to show the excerpt field with larger post thumb. Right now I would like to switch to a framework that is called ThemeHybrid and I am absolutely happy with it, however the best advice I have received from the framework developers as well as from the hybrid-community was to contact you directly and ask for your advice.

    Here is how I am trying to accomplish the showing of images and the tooltip, however so far I have only managed to show the images but no tooltip:

    ID; ?>

    array( ‘Thumbnail’ ), ‘size’ => ‘excerpthumb’ ) ) .’
    [/tooltip]‘); ?>

    In this example the .get_the_image() function is the one that pulls out the post thumbs from the database, however I do not know where did I go wrong so the tooltip is not showing. For your information I am trying to insert the tooltip directly in the theme rather than in a post, so this is why I have used the function echo do_shortcode() .

    So can you please give me an idea how can I properly insert the tooltip on mouseover the thumbs as according to the framework developer Justin Tadlock the problem is that the shorcodes expect html code but not the php one and this somehow messess the things. As you can see I have tried to escape from the php and to use the tooltip shortcode in html format, however the result is proofing that I have a lack of php skills or understanding how this particular plugin works.

    Thanks in advance and I shall admit that using your plugin in my posts would do a really nice job. It is just if I can use it directly in my theme – that would be PERFECT!

    • Tomas.Zhu says:

      Hi, It do works well on many themes, but I never use that theme, I still not sure what caused the problem, thanks for the advice I will improve it once I have a chance, thanks.

  71. elliptical says:

    This is the exact info i’m looking for, thanks! Arron

  72. Mike says:

    you NEED to add – class=”classtoolTips0″ – to your element or it will NOT work.

  73. Tomas.Zhu says:

    hello,Since version 1.0.7, you can just input alt for image and it will show as a tooltip
