Unsurprisingly, I’m not much given to trying to access tooltips. However, after our recent upgrade to latest, I was trying to check what information was being displayed in the redesigned message pages - which have no column headings - and attempted to use the tooltips. After some considerable time of carefully aiming my mouse at the number and seeing a tooltip which displays only that same number, I eventually discovered by accident that I needed to aim away from the number to get the actual information I wanted.
Some further research here indicates this is a problem in the “replies” column site-wide. The number is wrapped in a span which has
title="number", and that sits inside a td which has
title="this topic has X replies etc". So to access the more detailed information, you need to hover away from the number. Confusing and unhelpful, IMHO.
I can see no reason for the title on the
<span>, which merely duplicates the information, so perhaps this could be removed?
