Can anybody recommend a neat solution that provides a popup window when you hover over some text. In the popup I want to display an image and a few lines of text.
Many thanks in advance.
Do you mean the preview image that appears from the text?
I think what you are after is a tootip rather than a pop-up.
Try googling CSS tootip…here’s an example of what you can find: http://sixrevisions.com/css/css-only-tooltips/
Hi Hompimpa and Paulie_D
Paulie_D – this is exactly what I mean and the link you provided is perfect! This is exactly what I want, however, it doesn’t seem to work with IE8 or IE9…
Any suggestions on what I can try and alter?
In IE8 and IE9 the content in the popup appears on the page (i.e. it’s not hidden)
