Alright so my site has some tool tips for forum categories and other things.. how do i expand this to more things AND how do i edit the color/border/bg of the GP tooltip box.. currently im using the CSS:

.toolTipHeader {color: lime;font-weight: bold;}
#dhtmltooltip {position: absolute;width: 150px;border: solid 1px #999999;padding: 3px;background-color: black;color: #999999;visibility: hidden;z-index: 100;}

.toolTipHeader {color: white;font-weight: bold;}
#dhtmltooltip {position: absolute;width: 150px;border: solid 1px #999999;padding: 3px;background-color: black;color: #999999;visibility: hidden;z-index: 100;}

Editing this does almost nothing, i've tried changing the colors (especially the Lime one) to no avail, it doesn't change anything.. that lime color is definitely a sore eye on my site.

Hi Avandius,

Not to sound like a jerk, but I answered this question last week. All you had to do is search the "designer corner" forums for "tooltips".

Here is the link to the post.

My bad, i didnt read much past the first page, and i did try that one before, however for some reason it will not work in the footer area of my page. Maybe because i already have some script there im not sure, all i know is when i hit save it wouldn't save the script.

Thanks alot though, works and looks great once i added it to custom html for the banner.

Any idea what would be causing my home computer to crash on the home page of my site? All the other pages work fine but when i go to home it gives me  and error and IE closes. I dont have this problem on any other webpage and it did it before i started all my work on the site.

Alright ran into another problem, turns out when i post it into the banner custom html box my banner disappears.. i imagine i need a html for that since i was using the base tool banner method.

Can you tag me the code real fast?

I'm not sure why you can't save styles into the footer, but make sure you are saving it to the "Footer" and not the "Page Footer Text". I'm not sure why this matters, but I've run into trouble posting stuff into the latter - also make sure you add the "$block[boilerplate]" in the footer.

This might also be your trouble with the Banner Area. At the very top of the Banner Area page of the control panel, you'll see this note

Optional Elements:

$block[bannerimage] - Inserts the URL to an uploaded banner

It sounds like that's what you're missing.

I hope this helped!

Yup that did the trick, wonder why i couldnt use the footer box, it simply wouldn't save.

Anyhow that fixed the problem, got all the tooltips customized and sexy.
