    I paid for the Tooltip Pro Plus and what a waste of money. Way way over bloated with unnecessary options that cant be turned off if they interfere with my sites theme. Uses way too many !important's in its css that hijacks my themes css. Also it has way too many back end options that cannot be overridden and causes issues with how the tooltip text is rendered. Do what I did and tried another similar plugin where the issues I experienced here unsurprisingly vanished. Do some housework and clean both the plugin and your documentation site up - there I feel better now after throwing $30 in the bin Cheers and thanks for nothing!

    The support proved to be very helpful after initial difficulties... The plugin is overloaded with unnecessary functionality. Throws errors in my browser. Not the right plugin for me. Sorry.

    I had the problem that tooltips were visible on some pages and not on others. At the request of the support team, I sent them the contents of some web pages and an export of tooltip terms. Soon they had found the cause of the problem and provided the solution. The cause of the problem was that the tooltip was part of a sentence, which started with [ and ended with ]. The communication with the support team was extraordinary.Big thanks to the support team.

    There are a TON of features in this plugin, and for a week I found it daunting. But now I have a knack for it (still learning more about it).I now have three glossaries, for three "topics". On the glossary page, there is a dropdown so the user can choose any of the three topics and see all the terms in that topic. I had an issue with the terms showing in the header and footer (in Astra theme). I contacted support (I think I used the support contact form, but the spinner got stuck so maybe I emailed also... but in fact the contact form was submitted and I didn't realize it), and within two days they replied.After another reply from me, mentioning my WP theme, and a few more details (I clicked inspect element and pasted the code of what I was seeing, where the terms were appearing (in "primary nav"), I think support found that code helpful and solved the problem that day.The solution was, I just needed to update to the latest version of the Tooltips plugin and the latest version of Astra theme. Problem solved.Also, the Tooltips work on any page I want them to work. Currently I have it set to work on every page of my site, just because I think Tooltips are cool.You can customize the look of the TT when it pops up. You can customize the background color of it, and tons of other customizations (which I don't yet understand).
