Link Tooltip Plugin Dev Discussions

Just a note on an idea I would like to implement.

By using the "title" tag of links we can show a tooltip that shows some info on the page linked to.


PS: it seems I already opened a topic on TooltipPlugins ... smile

Looks good, maybe we could start small by allowing it in the [[ syntax.

Perhaps we could use [[url][name]/[tooltip]]??

I am packaging and enhancing a LinkTooltipPlugin from some code FrancoBagnoli has written for his WebComplex site (in Italian) ... see you soon! smile

  • uses the wonderful javascript overlib.js javascript library
  • adds a internalLinkHandler hook to the plugins hooks
  • shows the summary only if the user is allowed to view the topic


  • save the topic summary to a Mysql database at topic save time (beforeSaveHandler)
  • define a plugin FORMAT variable with the following vars:
    • $web
    • $topic
    • $webColor
    • $summary
    • $size
    • $isoDate
    • $author
    • $changedBy
