Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Tooltips Builder, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Support Case Month: May 2012

Hello Support:

I am looking for a script (more like your tooltip script) that does the following:

When I mouseover a link, it shows a preview image of the web page. You should also be able to click on that same link to be transferred to that web page.

Please go to http://www.codecanyon.net and mouseover their images. You see a preview of the web page and then can also click on it to go to that page. Can the tooltip script do this? Do you have a script that can do this?

Hello,

What you describe (showing a preview of the linked site) would be possible only through an online service that does this (taking screenshots of all sites out there). A service that can do this for example is “thumbalizr.com”. Using their API along with our Tooltips you can achieve the desired effect.

Also note, that having the sites as screenshot images will likely work faster than using a real online screenshot service (but then again, you’ll need to make a screenshot for each link manually).

Hello Kostas:

Thank you for your response:

To manually insert an image as a preview is fine.  However, can the Tooltips or any of the Likno scripts do a mouseover (to preview the image) and also have the capability to click on the link to go to that page. It appears that two actions (mouseover and click) have to be available to do what CodeCanyon does.

Of course! With Tooltips, you can show the tooltip on mouse-over and the link will work normally.

Note that these are standard page links with images in them. You do not need an extra script to make the link work. The tooltip is the only thing on top of a standard link.
