how to add 'hints' to html in posts to give translation of word

  1. Hey there: I have started a blog based on learning Irish and I'd like to be able to supply the translation of an Irish word by the visitor hovering the mouse over the underlined (translated word). This can be seen on any article on

    Is there a way to do this? I did try [hint][/hint] etc. but that didn't work.

  2. do you mean doing something like when you hover the word "cruinn" a tooltip would appear with the word "exact"?

    If so, this is how you do it:

    <a href="#" title="exact">cruinn</a>

    Also, please link to your blog when posting in these forums. Sometimes, the answer we give may not apply if the blog is not a hosted one.

  3. I didn't know you could do that! I will be trying this soon! Thanks.

  4. Hi again. And thank you!

    I tried what you suggested and it works except that when I hover my mouse over it, it is only highlighted and the English isn't coming up!

    What ya reckon I did wrong?

  5. Got it working! Míle buíochas!

  6. No problem. And if you want it to make it look even cooler, try this:

    <a style="cursor: help;" title="exact">cruinn</a>

    Notice that I remove the "href" property. Since you're not linking to a page, you don't need it.

  7. Very cool Dev, thanks a mil :)
