Forums: Index WoWWiki technical Tooltips Don't Show Anymore

I saw a few posts about tooltips, but not about what I'm experiencing. For some reason, I no longer see tooltips on any item links. I've tried any page by clicking from link to link and not one item is showing a tooltip for me. Instead, I get a simple windows tip saying "[item name] is a(n) ____ quality item", where the lines are the type of quality. Is this Firefox or a change in the wiki code?

What skin are you getting this on? --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C58,926 contributions and counting) 22:49, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
I'm using Monaco, but the tooltips are showing again. It's got me baffled. I've always used Monaco since I've started using wowwiki and I'll post again if it starts doing it again. Thanks for your response. --Kanegasi 01:32, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

--Noob post here related to tooltips. I haven't seen tooltips on Wowwiki for a while. From posts I've seen in the forums it looks like they were overhauled recently. For example, I'm trying to look at leatherworking recipes. On the main page it tells me I need javascript and site tooltips turned on. When I follow a link to specific apprentice recipes it shows the table, but I get the "[item name] is a X quality item" tooltip, not any information about the item itself.

I'm new enough here that I have no idea what skin I'm using, although I have never changed any skin settings so I would imagine it is the default. I'm using Chrome 7.0.517.41 and javascript is turned on.

I guess what this all boils down to is how do I turn on site tooltips? I've spent the last hour bouncing around the forums trying to figure this out and am giving up on the self-help option.

This is probably due to the new Wikia skin. I'd suggest you join us over at WoWPedia if you want tooltips to work properly. Zeha (talk) 20:43, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
The programming basis which allowed us to render the tooltips is no longer able to support them here, due to the new skin. Old skins still have them (which will require you to log in), and Wowpedia still has them on by default. --{{SUBST:User:Sky2042/sig}} 22:53, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
