A simple solution to creating custom tooltips. Add images, video, html, text or even an iframe as a tooltip. Originally, it was developed to provide a glossary solution for a client as part of a website rebuild. A paid plugin on the old site failed to work on the new site and was causing conflicts. So a simple tooltip solution was quickly whipped up to provide the required functionality.
It wasn’t a matter of replicating every function the same. Not even close! It was just a matter of providing a working solution according the the client’s needs. In many cases, there is no need to use paid plugins when lightweight solutions such as these can be developed.
The additional benefits tend to include:
- Less cost to the client over time
- A smaller codebase
- Less impact on page speed
- Easier for further customisation.
