TippyTitle will turn any title tags into styled tooltips. Red, green, blue; above, or below your tagged text; with, or without a pointer and just about any size that you want. You even get a choice of fifteen different cursors and the tooltip can appear either on hover, or when the linked item is clicked.
TippyPlus allows you to have an info panel open when your linked item is hovered or clicked. The Info Panel can contain just about anything you wish and, depending on the size of your content, can even cover the screen.
And that's not all. The two stacks can be combined and configured so that on hover, you see the tooltip and on click, your info panel will open.
So how does it all work?
Well, TippyTitle is extremely simple to set up. Select the word that you wish to add a tooltip to, click the Add Link button and, in the URL panel – next to Text – add your tooltip text.
You can now take a look at the stack setup panel and configure your tooltip to look exactly as you want it.
TippyPlus is very slightly more complicated to set up. By default it is configured to open your info panel when the stack content is hovered – which is great if you want to add a tooltip to a button, an image or a text snippet – in which case the stack displays two containers – one for your linked content and one for your info stacks.
As simple as the stacks are, there is a whole online manual describing the various setup possibilities. The manual is well worth taking a look at as the Tippy stacks are a lot more versatile than the stack settings would lead you to believe.
The first image above shows TippyTitle in action. The second image displays a TippyPlus info panel when the same link is clicked.
