This little hack will create a little popup window when you run your mouse over a certain word or image, like below

Before



Once Mouse Is Over Link




Ok here is HOWTODOIT

Please remember to use the Editor account before making any template changes, If you have not made an editor account yet please read HERE

Second you must have all ready a template you can edit.

If you have not done this please read HOWTODOIT


1. Goto admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Edit Templates/Logos -- the template you wish to edit (EG myff_howtodoit1)--- Submit

Now look at the top in the area marked Choose Forum template/javascript/css File to Edit use the drop down bar and find

overall_header.tpl

Now find

Code:
<HEAD> or <head>


After place this code

Code:
 <script type="text/javascript">
var dom = (document.getElementById) ? true : false;
var ns5 = (!document.all && dom || window.opera) ? true: false;
var ie5 = ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>-1) && dom) ? true : false;
var ie4 = (document.all && !dom) ? true : false;
var nodyn = (!ns5 && !ie4 && !ie5 && !dom) ? true : false;

var origWidth, origHeight;

// avoid error of passing event object in older browsers
if (nodyn) { event = "nope" }

///////////////////////  CUSTOMIZE HERE   ////////////////////
// settings for tooltip
// Do you want tip to move when mouse moves over link?
var tipFollowMouse= true;   
// Be sure to set tipWidth wide enough for widest image
var tipWidth= 360;
var offX= 20;   // how far from mouse to show tip
var offY= 12;
var tipFontFamily= "Verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif";
var tipFontSize= "8pt";
// set default text color and background color for tooltip here
// individual tooltips can have their own (set in messages arrays)
// but don't have to
var tipFontColor= "#000000";
var tipBgColor= "#DDECFF";
var tipBorderColor= "#000080";
var tipBorderWidth= 3;
var tipBorderStyle= "ridge";
var tipPadding= 4;

// tooltip content goes here (image, description, optional bgColor, optional textcolor)
var messages = new Array();
// multi-dimensional arrays containing:
// image and text for tooltip
// optional: bgColor and color to be sent to tooltip
messages[0] = new Array('http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg','FunnyWorld Is Coming Back Click The Link',"#FFFFFF");

      theImgs[i].src = messages[i][0];
  }
}

// to layout image and text, 2-row table, image centered in top cell
// these go in var tip in doTooltip function
// startStr goes before image, midStr goes between image and text
var startStr = '<table width="' + tipWidth + '"><tr><td align="center" width="100%"><img src="';

</script>



2. Goto admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Edit Templates/Logos -- the template you wish to edit (EG myff_howtodoit1)--- Submit

Now look at the top in the area marked Choose Forum template/javascript/css File to Edit use the drop down bar and find

viewtopic_body.tpl

Now Place This Code Where you wish it to appear.

Code:
<a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,0)" onmouseout="hideTip()">Funny World</a><br>



For this example i placed it under my location, so it could look like this



Code:
<td width="150" align="left" valign="top" class="{postrow.ROW_CLASS}"><span class="name"><a name="{postrow.U_POST_ID}"></a><b>{postrow.POSTER_NAME}</b></span><br /><span class="postdetails">{postrow.POSTER_RANK}<br />{postrow.RANK_IMAGE}{postrow.POSTER_AVATAR}<br /><br />{postrow.POSTER_JOINED}<br />{postrow.POSTER_POSTS}<br />{postrow.POSTER_FROM}<a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,0)" onmouseout="hideTip()">Funny World</a><br></span>


Which would show it as in the pictures at the beginning of the guide.


If you wish it to appear in your profile like below







Then place this code below , where you wish it to appear

Code:
        <td valign="top" align="right" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="gen">My Game Card:</span></td>
<td> <b><span class="gen"><a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,0)" onmouseout="hideTip()">Funny World</a><br></span></td>
      </tr>



Ok all that done you now need to customise it for your own forum.


So here is HOWTODOIT

1. The popup box is controlled in the overall_header.tpl code that you put in, so all the edits you will find in the overall_header.tpl.

To make the box smaller or bigger find

Code:
// Be sure to set tipWidth wide enough for widest image
var tipWidth= 360;


Change 360 to suit your needs


Changing image and text


Find

Code:
messages[0] = new Array('http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg','FunnyWorld Is Coming Back Click The Link',"#FFFFFF");


Image = http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org...unnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg

Text = FunnyWorld Is Coming Back Click The Link

color of text = #FFFFFF



Change to suit your needs



Ok all that done , you should now be looking in either viewtopic_body.tpl or profile_view_body.tpl depending where you placed the second code.

Code:
<a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,0)" onmouseout="hideTip()">Funny World</a><br></span>



Link
= <a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org"

Text = Funny World

Change to suit your needs.


Ok the last part of this guide explains how to add more than one .


1. Goto overall_header.tpl

Find the part of the code like this

Code:
messages[0] = new Array('http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg','FunnyWorld Is Coming Back Click The Link',"#FFFFFF");


Copy and paste that just below but you must remember to change the [0] to a different number each time an example is below.

Code:
messages[0] = new Array('http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg','FunnyWorld Is Coming Back Click The Link',"#FFFFFF");
messages[1] = new Array('http://www.farnboroughinvincibles.co.uk/templates/myff_farnboroughinvincibles1/images/minilogo.jpg','farnborough Invincibles',"#FFFFFF");
messages[2] = new Array('http://forum.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_forum4/images/myff_anim.gif','MYFF ',"#FFFFFF");


Now as before open up either profile_view_body.tpl or viewtopic_body.tpl and place the following code as before

Code:
<a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,0)" onmouseout="hideTip()">Funny World</a><br>


And change the link and text as shown above but remember to change the

Code:
 (event,0)"
to a number that matches in the overall_header.tpl


For example the event number must match in both overall_header.tpl and in the code above

An example is here

Popup window 1

Overall_header.tpl

Code:
messages[0] = new Array('http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg','FunnyWorld Is Coming Back Click The Link',"#FFFFFF");


Viewtopic_body.tpl or profile_view_body.tpl

Code:
<a href="http://funnyworld.myfreeforum.org/templates/myff_funnyworld3/images/funnyworld5.jpg" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,0)" onmouseout="hideTip()">Funny World</a><br>



Popup window 1

Overall_header.tpl

Code:
messages[1] = new Array('http://www.farnboroughinvincibles.co.uk/templates/myff_farnboroughinvincibles1/images/minilogo.jpg','farnborough Invincibles',"#FFFFFF");


Viewtopic_body.tpl or profile_view_body.tpl

Code:
<a href="http://www.farnboroughinvincibles.co.uk" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,1)" onmouseout="hideTip()">farnborough invincibles.co.uk</a><br>



You can see a finished example here
