Whats This

WhatsThis Tooltip Plugin.

Installing and working with the plugin. e.g.

  1. Upload whatsthis-tooltip folder and all of it's contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Add the following class and attributes to your page elements:
  4. Add "whatsthis" class to your element.
  5. To add simple text splashbox to your element use the "whatsthis" attribute.
  6. Example:[p class="whatsthis" whatsthis="Put your simple text here - this will be displayed within the tooltip"]This is the element that will have the whatsthis tooltip attached[/p]

(Replace the []'s with normal html greater/less than signs)

To load content from another DIV

1.Create a DIV and give it a custom class or id on the page.

  1. Add the 'wtcontent' attribute with the custom selector you chose for the DIV, remember to place a "."before the name for a classname and a "#" for an id. Just like the simple text option your page element must have the 'whatsthis' class when using the 'wtcontent' attribute. To hide the DIV that the content is in give it a class of 'wtcontent'.

  2. Example one - added a DIV with an "id" of 'samplediv':

[p class="whatsthis" wtcontent='#samplediv']This is the element that will have the tooltip attached[/p]

[div id='samplediv' class='wtcontent'][h1]Internal content goes here, This container will be hidden when you give it a class of 'wtcontent'.[/h3]<[/div]

(Replace the []'s with normal html greater/less than signs)

2.Edit each Plugin Settings options and clikc the 'Save Changes' button when finished.
