This is not about inserting tool tips with shortcodes, this is about adding meanings to some words on your website which will automatically appear on hovering the mouse pointer over the predefined words in WordPress. Text Hover, a WordPress plugin lets you add hover text to regular words. The plugin provides you a handy way for providing explanations of names, terms, phrases, and acronyms mentioned inside your posts, pages and comments.
Tooltips or infotips are used for showing hints when a mouse pointer is hovered over specified keyword or icon. Earlier we have discussed about displaying traditional tooltips in WordPress but now-a-days tooltips are not just limited to simple hint texts but various websites use them for showing HTML rich content containing images and links in them. Tooltips are not the popups, they only appear when mouse pointer is hovered over some icon or keyword and disappears as soon the pointer goes away.
Using new WordPress plugin Simple Tooltips you can display Toolstips in your custom color when targeted element is hovered in your WordPress site content. The plugin is mobile compatible, when using mobile devices your tooltips will shows up when targeted element is tapped.
