[resolved] Plugin to show info bubble on text hover? (8 posts)

    I am looking for a plugin which will allow me to write different sentences that will show up when the mouse is hovered over certain words. I know theres the title attribute of links but I am hoping for something smarter.
    Something like qtip which a beginner like myself can use.

    Any help greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Dan.

    here's an older one, so not sure if it still works, maybe there are other tool tip plugins if you search?

    I'm almost certain that if its just the styling that is an issue, you should be able to edit it directly in the plugin...a css file or something

    EDIT- I just downloaded the plugin...there is a css file. IF you go to your plugins->editor area from your admin menu you can edit the plugin to be any colour

    Sorry - i was really unclear in my last post.
    I mean that it stops my website's background from displaying properly - the white bit at the bottom isnt normally there.

    when i disable the plugin the website background displays fully.

    any thoughts on how I can edit the plugin to stop this from happening?

    thanks so much Rev. Voodoo and all!

    White bit at the bottom? Oh...you mean you normally have a gradient.... and then it's probably dark at the bottom of your page?

    I would guess this line in the plugin css is doing that:

    body {font:11px/1.5 Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; background:#FFF}

    Try commenting it out and see what happens, so change it to

    /* body {font:11px/1.5 Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; background:#FFF} */
