Anyone know how to use Item Linking within the forums for (world of warcraft)

many forums I've seen using [item]itemname[/item] and it would create the name of the item and when you hover your mouse over it, a bubble with its stats apear. just like ingame.

I can find a refrense siite if you need to know what im talking about, but I was wondering if its possable to do this with GuildPortal forums.

Yep I still cannot find anything, the allakhazam site wasn't much help. those people with the PHP sites make it easy with [item][/item] linking, but the way guild portal is set up with their really wierd coding is QUITE confusing.  Still don't know if it is do-able on guildportal.

i'm still looking though, I'll let you know if i find anything to help.

Your example uses a moderately complex javascript and a lot of directly linked images to do it's magic.  As far as I know, there are no short cuts built into GuildPortal to help.

If all you want is a simple text tool tip, many HTML tags support the "title" attribute.  When you mouse over, a small text tool tip will appear on your mouse pointer.

Here's the HTML to do it for an image:
<img src="url-to-image" title="tool tip text">

Here's an example:
