Mottie (SuperAdmin) 1/21/2009 2:35 AM EST : Are you tooltips (popup windows) missing?
Posts: 3884



A lot of the scripts that I write use a modified version of the built-in tooltips to display extra information.

So if you are using one of my scripts on your site and your tooltips aren't working or only show gibberish (raw HTML) then you are most likely missing this modified tooltip script.
You can read about how to use these tooltips in this post...
This is now a Mod
Control Panel > Site Mods > Get Site Mods >
Look for "Modified Tooltips"

Or, add the following to your Footer Area (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Scripts > Footer Area)

<style type="text/css">
.tooltip, .preview, .screenshot { cursor:pointer; }
#tooltip, #tooltip2 { width: 250px; }
#tooltip, #tooltip2, #preview, #screenshot  {
 color: #dddddd;
 background: #222222;
 border: 1px solid #333333;
 padding: 5px;
 border-radius: 1em;             /* rounded corners CSS3 */
 -moz-border-radius: 1em;    /* rounded corners Firefox */
 -webkit-border-radius: 1em; /* rounded corners webkit (Safari & Chrome) */
 opacity: 0.9;                        /* 90% opacity background */
 filter: alpha(opacity=90);       /* 90% opacity background IE only */
 text-align: left;
 display: none;
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

Edit (6/8/2009): Updated with information about the new modified tooltip version.
Edit (2/2/2010): Added comments to the CSS, so you can see what each part does.
