Only shows 3 tooltips.. the 4th is blank..
By , for WP 4.0

Works great.. love how easy it is to set up.. but.. only displays 3 tooltips on a page that I would like to have 20 on.. when i add the 4th plugin.. it simply pops up as blank.. won't display the text.

Any ideas?

I'll kick the last star in, once we can get this resolved because this is a really kick ass plugin.

Thanks so much.

Very nice plugin, requires patience + HTML skills

The plugin does what it's supposed to to: show a nice little popup. If you only want to display either text or images, the plugin does a great and simple job.

Why "only" 4 stars?
My intention is to display different stuff like images, links and do a little formatting. Therefore extended HTML skills are required imho.

It would be awesome if the author would integrate a small button into the WP-WYSIWYG editor where one could easily insert HTML based code (without having to use &g t; etc.). Maybe in the next version?

Great !

I have a lot, especially the ability to change the background color and text. What I like least is that there is no possibility to find all the definitions on a particular page, a bit like a glossary. But I remain committed to this little plugin ... I do not know why! :-)

Once I figured out how to use it, it works great

This is a great plugin. It uses the standard and very lightweight Zebra Tooltips jQuery script and adds a configuration panel so you can change some of the parameters (colors and such).

But what should be made more clear -- especially for newbies -- is how to use it. Yes, I know, it's right there in the description. HTML elements with class="tooltips" will have the title="" element put up as a tooltip.

But how about a prominent box in the Settings page explaining what you actually need to do (besides installing the plugin) to set up a tooltip? An HTML example would be nice. Or maybe even, for advanced users, an example of a jQuery script that would add classes and titles to elements that don't have them (see this post by Sridhar Katakam for an example).

That's my two cents, anyway. Great effort, overall. Very helpful. Highly recommended. Many thanks.
