Josh Benham of the PluginBuddy team has released his first plugin. It’s called Tipsy, and allows you to easily create content-rich tooltips for your site. Instead of just text, Tipsy allows you to add tooltips with things like YouTube videos, Flickr photo galleries and Slideshare presentations (just to name a few).
If you want to use a Tipsy tooltip, all you have to do is create a “group” and set up the content you want to use. If you would rather do it on the fly, you can also use shortcodes. Watch the Tipsy overview video just after the jump to see how it works.
Have you ever used tooltip effects like this? If so, what techniques have you used?
