pure css tooltip Plugin

Plugin to make pure css tooltips in any editor.

syntax in editor:

{tooltip}link{end-link}tooltip text{end-tooltip}

tooltip where tooltip-link is also a hyperlink:
{tooltip href="/" target="_blank"}joomla{end-link}Joomla is good{end-tooltip}

tooltip with different style:
{tooltip class="tooltip_blue"}blue{end-link}blue tooltip box{end-tooltip}

dropdown so you can put hyperlinks in the tooltip, so it becomes a dropdown menu:
{tooltip class="pure_css_dropdown"}dropdown menu{end-link}content with links etc.{end-tooltip}

You can edit the css in:
* Joomla 1.6: /plugins/content/purecsstooltip.css
* Joomla 1.5: /plugins/content/purecsstooltip.css
* Joomla 1.0: /mambots/content/purecsstooltip.css

Also works in Internet Explorer 6!
Except for the dropdown feature.
In Joomla 1.0 only the basic tooltip functionality works.

We had to disable another Plugin that was causing a conflict and stopping this working (Rockettheme's RokBox).

After that, it works perfectly.

We got fast helpful replies to a support contact also.
Thanks for this useful plugin.

I would like to insert links inside the tooltip, but if I do that the tooltip breaks. Is there a solution to this?

The problem is that when I try to use more than 2 tooltips I end up with display issues.

This tool really is a cool one. Exactly what I'm looking for. Simple and easy to install, and use ;) Thanks a lot!

i'd give this an excellent .. but for the fact that the 'link' is an actual link that is clickable, which just reloads the page. (is there a way to ditch that part?)

however .. it's VERY easy to use .. shows a nice tooltip .. i like it a lot!!!

you can take the link away, but then it won't work in IE6. I will make this optional in the next version. If you want to get rid of the link edit plugins/content/purecsstooltip.php on line 53.
