Hi, I am a Joomla newbie. Please help me install the pure css tooltip plugin. I found my way to the Joomla (1.5) Extension Manager. Where do I go from here? Do I need to unzip the downloaded plugin file?

dont unzip it. All Joomla extensions come zipped or rarred (unless it says 'unzip_first' in the name of the download file).

Go to 'Extensions' > 'Install/Uninstall'.
Click 'browse' and select the file which you just downloaded.
Click 'Upload File & Install'.
The file is being uploaded and installed.
Go to 'extensions' > 'plugin manager'.
Click on 'pure css tooltip'.
At 'Enabled:' select 'Yes'.

Then use the syntax as explained here:

Thanks Carsten,

That is basically what I did a few days ago, but I got the following error:

* JFTP::mkdir: Bad response
* JFTP::chmod: Bad response
* JFTP::store: Bad response
* Warning! Failed to move file.

which got me all confused; it turned out the "tmp" path was set incorrectly in the configuration.php file by the site designer.

I fixed it, and was able to install pure css tooltip without further problems.

Hartelijk dank!

I have the plug-in installed and activated but don't know what to do next.

I too am totally new to Joomla; I actually am doing a class project. This is the second plug-in I have tried to use.

If possible, step by step instructions would be great!

The code in your documentation is:
{tooltip}link{end-link}tooltip{end-tooltip}

Do you replace the words link and tooltip with other copy?
Does this code go in the article? Does it call up the info that gets displayed in the little tooltip box? Is the info that you want to display get put in its own article?

How all these functions talk to each other is still so confusing!

Thanks for the help.
