This is a repost of information from this thread.
A lot of the scripts that I write use the built-in tooltips to display extra information. But recent changes with GuildPortal have removed this script. In fact the existing script has been commented out! Look at it here if you want, note the "//" in front of every line: dtips.js

I'm thinking that there is a plan to drop the current tooltips and start using a jQuery addon called "Growl"

Test it out here: Growl!(look in the upper right corner after clicking, then click some more!)

Then check out this demo page.

Anyway, I still like my classic tooltips, so I uploaded a copy of the script to my site... you can link to it with this code. Just add it to the footer of your site (Control Panel > Style & Colors > Footer).
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

Oops, I forgot to show you how to use the growl window:

Just add this line to the editor while in HTML mode ()
<a href="javascript:growl('TITLE','Hello this is a test');">Growl!</a>
  • The "TITLE" (in blue) is the title/header that shows in the Growl window.

  • The text in green is what you want displayed inside the body of the Growl window, this can include HTML tags like <img>

  • The link (in purple) is what is clicked on to make the Growl window pop up. This also can include <img>

Thank you so much for posting this!  I have experienced the same issue and this is the first thread I've found with something useful.  Ours have also disappeared.   I've tried your suggestions but they still don't seem to be coming up.

Make sure you check the 'Enable' checkbox on the Footer page for this code to be included.
