Help:Tooltips Create Talk0 Questions? Ask in the Community Forum. Example of a large tooltip from the Ikariam Wiki's Dump page Tooltips are simple hover effects you can use to provide extra information to readers when they hover over certain elements on a page, such as text. Step by step In order to make a basic tooltip all you will have to do is surround the text you wish to have a tooltip with span tags containing the parameter title="text goes here!", like this: <span title="This is a tool-tip!">Mouse-over me to see the tool-tip!</span> This results in: Mouse-over me to see the tool-tip! You can also change the way the cursor looks when hovering over the same text or any other text by adding style="cursor:<cursor-style>;". For example: style="cursor:help;" will produce this: Mouse-over me to see the 'help' cursor. style="cursor:pointer;" will produce this: Mouse-over me to see the 'pointer' cursor.
