Allows creation and placement of Admin Pointers (those little blue help boxes) on any page or post, including custom post types.
This plugin will allow creation of admin pointers on any screen in the WordPress admin area. It creates a custom post type called Pointers to store information. You need to add the following info to make it work:
EXAMPLE: Let's say I want to add a pointer on the edit plugin page that tells a user to notice which plugin they are editing. I would use:
OPTIONAL: If your pointer is slightly misaligned, no worries. You can use the last 2 fields (Nudge Horizontal and Vertical) to reposition.
NOTE: I also have a plugin that does help tabs, if you are interested in that one you can find it here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/better-admin-help-tabs/
This plugin leverages the great work done by others here:
