There's one thing that has always impressed me about WoWHead: their tool-tips. I had noticed the other day that on my home-wiki, we had the tool tip extension activated -, but when I went in to test it out, I found its parameters to be lacking in nearly every aspect. Not only is the extension only able to load up text chunks, with images/etc. being out of the question, but the text also loads up under the cursor, which slightly defeats the purpose of having a tool tip in the first place.

So I was wondering if anyone in this wonderful community would be able to help me out with customizing this extension for my wiki? Because here is what I'm looking for:

  • The ability for tool-tips to at least be able to load up images, as well as accepting wiki-code. (Not sure if this is the case or not. I'll be playing around with this extension some more as I wait for a response.)
  • Having a more pronounced border around the information loaded, which can easily be customized to fit in with the wiki background.
  • Parameters that would determine whether the tool tips load up under or above the cursor. (I'm personally looking for above)
  • I would like to have it where the tool-tip remains up, so long as the cursor is hovering over the original text, or within the respective tool-tip. Right now, even if the cursor goes into the tool-tip, the tool-tip will disappear again, making it unable to take advantage of links.
