Support » Plugins » Image tooltip

  • I’m trying to find a way to show a box with text on mouse over image. I only need this on a few thumbnail in my sidebar.

    Does anyone know a plugin that would do that / or any other way?

    Thanks a lot.

    That’s commonly done with the title tag. When you insert an image using WordPress you’ll get a field called Title. Put your “tooltip” text there and it’ll show up when you mouse over it.

    If you’re hard-coding your sidebar or entering the code via a text widget, the code is something like:

    <img src="path/to/yourfile.jpg" title="This is the text I want to display as a tooltip" height="50" width="50" alt="your alt text" />

    I know that, but I want something more visible – based on jquery or similar, you know what I mean?

    Well unless you tell us what you don’t want, I can’t read your mind. 😉

    I plugged jQuery tooltip into the plug-in repository and quite a few options came up – why not try a few and see which one you like:

    Hey, am looking for something kinda similar. I have made a .png of an info text box and I want to have that box appear when I mouse over an image I have inserted in a page. Can you direct me to documentation on that? Thank you very much.
