Forums: Index WoWWiki technical Issue with tooltip

Howdy :) I'm new to wowwiki editing and have an issue with tooltips. Basically, it would be great to know why I'm getting something like this: The tooltip is on the wrong side. What im doing wrong? :(

Looks like you're doing everything fine. Appears the problem is on wikia's end, so I'll forward this along. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 16:29, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
This is very weird. It's happening only to new articles, and seems to be a problem with one of the templates. Some of those have been edited recently, but whatever was changed it doesn't make sense that only new articles would be affected. I've tried purging and a null edit to an older page (to see if it's a caching problem after template edits) but that didn't trigger the problem. So I'm very confused. I'll get a second opinion and a bug ticket filed -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 19:07, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
The new pages have been created incorrectly. When something's wrong with the tooltip parameters, the thing goes to the left to show you that you screwed up. Resa1983 (talk) 19:28, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
Ahh, I see... so on the test page I created, the title didn't match the markup, so I was seeing the same issue (even though it was a direct copy of a working article). Lectral, I fixed Cinnabar_Shoulders_(heroic) by adding in the line: |disambigpage=Cinnabar Shoulders (heroic)
Thanks for the help Resa -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 21:33, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
To clarify, when the page a tooltip appears on does not match the name of the item in the tooltip, the tooltip will display smaller and to the left. This is not to tell you that you screwed up, but only because the idea is that you really only want a tooltip to float to the right and be large on the page that matches the item name. So, as Sannse found out, you can use |disambigpage=realpagename if the item name doesn't match the page name, but you still want it to float to the right and be full size. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:59 PM PST 27 Dec 2010
