Re: Topic Text in Mouse Over

So I just noticed that if you move a topic and leave a shadow topic in place (which is basically a link to the topics actual location) this mod behaves strangely.

The shadow topic has the "title" of the topic above it. Could this be fixed to show the correct title? Or if not, at least display no title on shadow topics? Please do some testing of "moving" topics so you can see what I mean. I'm not sure if this screenshot will help explain it or not.

One other thing- Does this mod slow down page loading times considerably or is it just me? I thought it slowed down my page load time when I installed it for topics and then noticed it again when I made the changes for the search pages too.

Great mod anyhow! I do love it and appreciate your work.

As this mod is now developing into a sort of board wide thing, I'll take a look at a more complete integration. Complete = easier (aka less involved file edits) ;) Won't be for a while though.

Whoops, bug....see above.

As there are additional sql being pulled...may slow down the page a tad. I wouldn't think a lot though.

Thank you for your kind words!! :D

Well I got around to looking at the mod and made some improvements.

You can find the new mod here unfortunately, there is no change log as I basically rewrote the mod, so you will have to uninstall the older version and install the new version. Pay particular mind to the SQL update...there's a new field added.

Some items of interest
  1. Option of showing either the first or the last post or both of a topic in tooltip mouse over added in ACP
  2. Completely integrated in search.php, includes/functions_display.php, and viewforum.php
  3. Also works for "shadowed" topics
In order to keep this thread as clean as possible, please provide feedback (positive or negative) here (guest posting is allowed).

Thanks, looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks. :)

Nice mod. However, I think the popup tooltip should be done with CSS. The title attribute that is currently used to produce the tooltip gets handled differently by some browsers. Some browsers (particularly old browsers, don't actually display the contents of the title attribute in a popup. Additionally, this doesn't work very well with screen reader programs as many will try to read the contents of the title attribute out loud. Finally, in Internet Explorer, the tooltip will only stay for a limited amount of time. After that, the tooltip disappears. This often occurs before the topic text can be read.

Good. Only one problem. There are still the default popups which present info such as "no new posts." In some cases, these overlap the CSS tooltips you have created.

I know...problem is within the prosilver template file itself. Eg, viewforum_body.html states this
<dt<!-- IF topicrow.TOPIC_ICON_IMG and S_TOPIC_ICONS --> style="background-image: url({T_ICONS_PATH}{topicrow.TOPIC_ICON_IMG}); background-repeat: no-repeat;"<!-- ENDIF --> title="{topicrow.TOPIC_FOLDER_IMG_ALT}">
..and the <dt surrounds the topic's title. So a decision needs to be if that is left or taken out...if taken out, then hovering over anything with in the attached pic will not produce the title "no new posts", etc. If left then the only thing that can be done would be to move the tooltip around to accomodate the title popup. That's why you sort of see two tooltips.

Also, I would appreciate it if all future comments concerning further development of this mod could be made on my forum. I can't make it much easier than allowing guest posting and would really, really, really, really like to keep this topic as clean as possible as this is supposed to be a "MOD release topic" and not a "MOD in development topic".....please. :)

Thanks.

Any idea when the latest version (with CSS) will be approved and available here?

This one didn't work for me.

My board is alienbabeltech.com

I enabled it from board features, purged cache, refreshed the templates and styles . Still didn't work .

Now I want to try 1.0.2 . Do i need to undo the SQL changes this mod did ? How do i do that then ?

I could probably help if you gave more information than "this one didn't work for me."

No, you can leave them.
