After searching the web for a lot of popup plugins and going through many headaches, Tippy provided everything I was looking for.

An intuitive configuration menu, simple enough shortcode system, great plugin information on creator's website... It really did serve me well.

The feature I cherish the most is being able to get any kind of popup when hovering an image -- something I've found nowhere else.

Still discovering all the possibilities!

I love this plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Is the best ever plugin. It give me some jQuery compatibility issue with my theme that I'm not able to fix but I used with other themes and is great!

Doesn't work for 3.9

This seems like it was a great plugin that would do exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, there appears to have been no further development, and it simply doesn't work with 3.9..

As easy as cute :-)

I used to use the Text Hover plugin by Scott Reilly. But in WP 3.6.1 the underline was not displaying. Did a quick search and found this plugin. Worked like a charm. And I must say, Tippy is way better than Text Hover !

Tippy ... the best tooltip you're going to find!

Tippy is a wonderful tooltip plugin that allows for html markup in the content. You can add photos, bolded or italicized text, and even embed a sound recording or video.

The option panel allows for considerable tweaking. You can even require that the tooltip link (which can be either text or a graphic) be clicked before the tooltip will open, making it behave much like a conventional popup. Amazing!

I absolutely love this plugin and encourage everyone to make a donation to the developer for a job well done, and also to encourage ongoing development.

Its just awesome....

Tippy is my hero. I was searching and searching for a good tool-tip plugin that could handle images. Tippy does that and more in a clean, easy to understand manner. I <3 Tippy. :*

Tippy + Glossy is exactly what I was looking for! Tried tons of similar plugins to make a list of people with onclick pop-up bio details, and each plugin was flawed in some way... Glossy+Tippy does the trick easily!

Exactly what I needed!

This is an awesome plugin. It's simple to use and it totally answered my need to share a tidbit of info in a clean, clear way. Thank you for sharing!!
