beautiful tooltips

Just a suggestion for the eyes in next release or so:



a beautiful tooltip, f.e. as seen here:

[url]ProductCart Shopping Cart Software Demos - Try Before You Buy

where are the tooltips? I did’nt see tooltips anywhere on this site, also I doubt CS would implement tooltips into CS because that is more of a design issue that we can implement pretty easily ourselves if you would like…

move your mouse over a photograph or so, then they show…not with you?



or maybe your idea of tooltip is different: these are huge with all info in there.



ok…I see what your talking about now, I thought you were referring to basic tooltips like the ones at [url]http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex5/index.html[/url], yea I would like to see this option in CS but only with the ability to turn on/off through the cs admin panel.

right, my thought as well :wink:

I’m not certain how tooltips are generated. However, I believe “title” attributes for images should be configurable by the store admin.



“Alt” attributes are important for screen readers, etc. and should not be used for full descriptions. If I understand correctly, this is what the “title” attribute is for, and good title attributes add a good deal of content which is spiderable by the SE’s (if on the other hand the tooltips are generated by javascript, they will not be spidered). I’m guessing these beautiful tooltips are just css modified “title” attributes?

well view source, looks to me to be AJAX and java, with some css added to it here is the part i think does it.

that looks like it…the client-side code yes.

now for the implementation in cs-cart, would be nice.

toggable (on/off) and customisable (which fields etc.) in the admin

and a nice tpl for this.

lets hope they pick up on this :o)



making it ourselves is an option of course, however we then have

to re-implement it with every release…not so handy…

ajax || ruby does give some nice options.

this is a custom store afaik, and great looking nifty one, have a look!!

You could fancy up the tooltip box from Dynamic Drive by added some graphics. I added a tooltip to show larger images on my auction site below. It would be just a matter of moding the tooltip to fancy it up. You don’t need ajax, but you will have to load the tooltip bubble content when the page initially loads.

thats a cool site. i like how you can drag and drop the items into the cart

Drag and Drop cart with code:

where do you put the code?

[quote name=‘zoom4267’]where do you put the code?[/QUOTE]There is a little more to it. His code will need to be configured to CS-Cart, but it looks like is it mostly all there. BTW, what about the original ToolTip this thread was started with? Not enought “Wow Factor” anymore?

things just getting better every day here at cs cart support forums

[quote name=‘taydu’]things just getting better every day here at cs cart support forums[/QUOTE]Just for fun, I installed the drag and drop cart in a folder on my site:

Here is a guy that has already implemented the code on his site:

thaths very nice yeah.

i forgot to put this link here as well, but i see you already

found it lol

if cs-cart would add something like this, they would definately

split themselves from the “other” ones

btw, i still like the original pop up that started this LOL. id be interested in that too. i think if the customer can just scroll down the page and mouse over the product and have the description right there it would save them time. I just like the wow factor too.



i really like the drag and drop cart too. i think the pop up is better because there are check boxes and then add to cart, but its just soo cool and i do agree that if cs cart put it in it would send them way above the others.
