Description

Display text or an image to your users when they hover their mouse pointer over an item, without clicking it, by using Tooltips.

When a user moves their pointer to text, or an image, for which you have defined a tooltip, a small "hover box" appears. This box can contain text or an image. Optionally the text can contain html formatting including URLs.

The syntax simply looks like:

{tip Wow!::Now I can give something a cool tooltip!}This text has a tooltip.{/tip}

The result is: This text has a tooltip.

 Use it anywhere

You can create these tooltips almost anywhere in your site. Not only in articles, but anywhere you can enter text, like in modules and components.

The tooltips are fully stylable through settings and CSS.

Joomla 2.5 vs Joomla 3

There is a big difference in the Tooltips version for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3. Not only in the way it looks, but also in functionality.

The Joomla 2.5 version of Tooltips is based on the tips functionality of Mootools (which comes with Joomla 2.5 core).

The Joomla 3 version of Tooltips is based on the popover functionality of Bootstrap (which comes with Joomla 3 core).

The examples on this site are based on the Joomla 2.5 version. To see the Joomla 3 version in action, see the Demo.
