Discourse-tooltips - preview topic contents on hover


(Robin Ward) #1

I’ve just released the first version of discourse-tooltips, which will preview the contents of topics on hover:

In the future the plugin will show more tooltips but this seemed like a good start :slight_smile:

Get excerpt for regular topics
Optimized interface for "adapting" topic titles?

I’ve installed and done an app rebuild and it doesn’t work

It would help if you indicate any errors you are seeing.


I’ve checked logs and haven’t seen anything about it, hence why I didn’t do that.

It works fine on my sandbox, so you’ll have to try a bit harder to troubleshoot or think of reasons why it wouldn’t work for you (think about potential conflicting plugins, customizations, etc).

A couple of bug reports:

  1. If the text of the tooltip overflows (example have the excerpt be a giant hyperlink or the text x repeated 500 times) it overflows out of the bounding box

  2. If you load in new topic to the list (cause 1 was changed or new) you do not get tooltips on the new topics

These issues have been fixed in the latest version of discourse-tooltips, thanks.

but how to make it so that if there is an image, so that it is also shown when it is being hovered?

(Robin Ward) #10

There’s no such option for that currently. I’m using our standard ExcerptParser and I don’t believe it has an option to keep images. If it did, we’d also have to figure out some CSS so it would look horrible.

I’d accept a PR that did it carefully behind a site setting.

A minor issue in admin panel:

Oops, fixed here.

(Diego Barreiro) #13

I think this plugin is no longer working :confused:

It’s not working on my forum

(Robin Ward) #14

@sam it looks like the jQuery upgrade broke discourse-tooltips. I’m not sure why but I confirmed locally that reverting jQuery fixes this issue.

(Jeff Atwood) #15

OK we should fix this @sam

(Jeff Atwood) #16

I think @joffreyjaffeux fixed it? Can you close if so?


The plugin works as intended on the topics on the category page (I have it set to categories + latest), but there’s no tooltip showing up on topic hover on any other page. I’ve looked around in settins for something that could be causing a conflict but haven’t spotted anything yet.
