Guide to Tooltipster and Excerpts

  Tooltipster is a Master Feature!
If you want to use it, please consider supporting World Anvil!
  Tooltipster is an in-depth way to show previews of articles with full BBCode support within other articles wherever they're linked within your world: hover an article link or an article block to see a tooltip with information from the article. They are a Master-only feature, and can be enabled by checking DISPLAY ARTICLE TOOLTIPS under the Display tab of your World Configuration. They are a part of the Advanced Customization Features described in the Master tier of the pricing page.   By default, tooltipster previews will be populated from the title, cover, and vignette of an article. You can override this by editing the article to be previewed, and writing whatever you want in the MOUSEOVER SNIPPET box of the Design tab of that article.   If your links don't display a tooltipster and your account is in the Guild Master tier (or above), make sure that the Display article tooltips checkbox in your world's Display settings is checked:

  Alternatively, if Tooltipster is disabled, tooltips will show the contents of the Excerpt box of an article, which is below the mouseover snippet box. This field does not accept BBcode.

Is there a way to disable the header image from appearing in the tooltip? I unchecked the "Display Block Headers" option in my world settings, but it doesn't seem to remove the image from the tooltips.

Hello! You can suppress it one of two ways!   First, is to set a rule on your world css to display:none the following selector .tooltipster-content img:first-child.   Second, and more time consuming but rewarding, is to use edit the contents of the mouseover snippet box of each article's design tab, as that overrides what shows up in tooltipster.

Awesome! That worked perfectly. I may try out the mouseover snippet later on, but I really like being able to see my vignette in a pop-up :) Thank you for your help!
