Support » Plugin: Tippy » Title attribute pops-up over Tippy tip

  • Tevya


    I’m using the latest version of Tippy, and I’ve noticed a small UI issue: when the user hoovers over the tip and the tip pops-up, a moment or two later the browser pops-up the title= text from the hyperlink. Is it possible to remove the title attribute from Tippy links, or somehow tell the browser to not display them?

    I’ve debated with the best way to handle the title attribute. For a few reasons (SEO, accessibility, fallback, to name three), it is best to keep it. What I might do is to add an option to the Tippy settings, allowing users to turn it on or off as desired.



    I (plan to) use Tippy in a widget and use html.
    Adding this solves it for some browsers, e.g. Firefox. In Chrome this will show a small box with one blank.

    ……<span title=” “>Your title here</span>

    Perhaps for the time being….

    Added an option at the bottom of the Tippy Settings page to not use the title attribute in the Tippy links.

    Excellent! Thank you.
