I'm not sure exactly what it is called but I'm told it's "mouse overlay".  I would like to have the little screen show when you mouse over loot links that shows the item stats and stuff.  I've searched everywhere on the web and can't find how to do this in the GuildPortal bulletin board format.  My guild is a warcraft guild.

Thank you very much for any help you can provide.

Thank you so much !  I was stuck forever on the "header" part b/c I was trying to add it into the page and it wouldn't take.  But, thanks to your test site I was able to finally figure it out.

I look forward to using your test site to implement some really fun stuff

Thank you !!

Don't we all?
