Explanatory Dictionary
[resolved] Too many repetitive tooltips! (4 posts)

    I am writing about the topics that are defined in my tool tips, so the words occur often on the same page.

    Users complain that once they read the dictionary tooltip, they don't need to see it again (and again and again) on that same page. Unless they are careful with their mouse, the tooltips cover up copy they want to read.

    How can I limit dictionary tooltips so they only show up on the first instance of a word on any given page?

    Looking at the page generated code, this is even weirder : if you set up synonyms, le filter applies on the primary terms and the generated synonyms, in an endless loop or so. Same probably for the rss.

    The idea is pretty good but ... I'd prefer the filters not applying on the rss function, where it is of no use at all, and definitely I'd have the filter applying once and for all on the content, excerpt, etc... excluding it's own result !

    My 2 cents

    This is built into the plugin in the "Options" page. If you go to the bottom and set the "Limit" option to 1, then it will only display the tooltip on the first instance of the word.

    I believe that is what you're wanting to solve.

    See scweber's answer on how to solve this.
    However the last time I tried this it didn't work but, I've recently taken over the development of this plugin and one thing I am doing is rewriting the code.

    So it should all be working proper in the next update.
