The bottom of the heap...

No support. To make tooltips for the keywords it is very trickish problem and author screw it. I am sorry my suggestion to the author to write a new plugin or just move it away from wp extensions. I totally agree with conclusion of @gregd222


By , for WP 4.3

Hoping that the 'Pro' version would do what it says here on the plugin's description : 'Add tooltip to menu items: "You can add tooltips into menu items, sub menu items ... " , I went and purchased the 'Pro' version.

Which turned out to be a piece of worthless and misleading junk.

At the 'Menu item tooltips', in the Pro version, all it provides is a button, to 'Enable Tooltips on Menu items' , with a disclaimer note that it may NOT work on some, 'more advanced' themes. Of course it wouldn't work, on any theme, because it's just a button, doing nothing !
It doesn't offer ANY instruction on how the menu items tooltips should be activated, and testing with the 'title' attribute produced no results.

Maybe the plugin works for some uses, with keywords, but that was not the function that I needed.
The javascript the plugin is based on, is jquery.qtip, a free jquery plugin, released in 2009, by Craig Thompson.
The 'author' of this plugin seems to have just slapped on a few extra buttons on top of this free jquery plugin, made it look like a WordPress plugin, and set out to make a quick buck.
I requested a refund on the author's website, but haven't heard from him. After a few days of waiting I decided that this plugin's Pro version is a SCAM. Don't waste your money !

Useless for German Language
By , for WP 4.2.4

At first sight the plugin looked very promising. But for a match you have to put into the glossary the exact wording. But in German we have many different endings and inflections. So it does not work for me.

Glossary Page is lacking
By ,

There isn't enough options for the glossary Page. I would have used that, if available. I mean, there is no way to organize a neat list of terms with thumbnails and custom url slugs.

Issue with tooltips and theme solved quickly and efficiently
By , for WP 3.8.1

We had a conflict between a new (pro) version of the plugin and our theme. It was solved with an extra update in a couple of days. It now works fine again.
