New version CM tooltip 3.1.7 : Great plugin and awesome support
By , for WP 4.2.2

Since I installed Twenty Thirteen switched from Hueman, CM tooltip plugin stopped showing on the page. It still appeared as float but not on the actual page.

I contacted the CM tooltip team and they released up-date so it won't send auto RSS feed.....this does not make any sense to a newbie like me but their quick response to my problem was great!!!

As I have English/Japanese site for Japanese food recipes and recommended places in Japan. I wanted to have cooking and food terminologies on my site.

This plugin has been a great way to do what I wanted.

If anybody is interested making a glossary like that, this can be an example ;)

My site is ; [Link redacted]

Good plugin

A good glossary plugin with a good support.

Powerful plugin, lots of options
By , for WP 4.2.2

It's not the most intuitive plugin but it's very powerful and the developer has put a lot of thought into how it works. I noted some accessibility issues (WCAG 2.0 AA criteria) and the developer has been responsive to my suggestion of making the plugin compliant. They have committed to fixing this in future releases :-)

Tooltip PRO
By , for WP 4.2.1

The plugin is a perfect fit for our church website ... we're working to reduce the amount of text the visitors have to wade through, by moving much of that text into Tooltips. It's doing the job for us very nicely!

Amazing plugin with a efficient support

I have this plugin for years. First the free version and then the Pro. It is getting better and always has an efficient support. Congratulations to the developers!

Pro user - Does what it ays
By , for WP 4.2.2

We're currently pro users (licensed users) and recently had some hiccups when we upgraded WordPress to 4.2.2. In the end they were all items on our end / our responsibility, but support was extremely fast in responding (and also very non judgmental). The plugin is very robust and gives you a lot of control.

Best Tooltip Plugin on Market & Dev Is Very Responsive
By , for WP 4.2.2

Have looked at all tooltip plugins on market and this one works the best for us, by far. The dev is VERY responsive and has gone out of his way at least four or five times to fix issues we were having, some being conflicts with other plugins that were coded poorly .... He has even gone as far as to update cm tooltips to prevent said conflicts from occurring.... even though it was the fault of another plugin. One of the most responsive plugin developers I've worked with, by far!

overpriced, unsightly, misleading refund policy
By , for WP 4.2.2

It's true that this plugin has many advanced glossary features, but all the complex functions aren't worth very much when basics are being ignored.

CM Tooltip Pro+ costs $40 *per year* and comes with expensive extensions that provide almost no additional features. The whole purpose of a tooltip is to keep the reader on the page while providing additional information. Because CM Tooltip Pro+ doesn't allow an image in the tooltip itself, the reader has to go to the glossary page, Worse, the tooltip produced is hard to read and unsightly. Compare the output of the annual $40 CM Tooltip Pro+ to the $9 Tooltip Pro here.

I paid $80 total because (1) the underlying features are in fact very promising and (2) because of the stated 30 day return policy. Once I had installed CM Tooltip Pro+ I realized that despite paying for a skins package, I had very little control over the actual presentation of the tooltip. Given all this, I wrote to the developers and asked for a refund.

They wrote back that I had misunderstood the 30 day refund policy, that it was only applicable if support couldn't resolve the issues I was having. There followed about four days of back and forth emails in which I provided the image linked to above. In the end they put out a new release that allows images in the tooltip, but does nothing to improve the overlook of the tooltip. Today I heard from them again, asking what exactly was it that I wanted?

I didn't spend $80 to have a long discussion with the developers on how they could improve their product. I took them at their word that I could get a refund, and they will not honor that promise. I have invested a couple hours at least in this back and forth, provided them with the information they asked for multiple times, and still do not have what I paid for. The advertising is misleading at best and deceptive at worst. This is a terribly overpriced plugin, and not worth the money or time investment.
