View Full Version : First 150 Characters as tooltip

17 Nov 2002, 18:20
At least that's what i think it's called: tooltip. This hack will show the first 150 characters of the first post if you hold your mouse over the link to a thread on the forumdisplay page. A screenshot is included in the zip, together with installation instructions. Enjoy.

Ah. Sorry for re-creating it.
There's a screenshot in the zip file JohnWoo.

aaaaah, that will add a ton of queries. i suggest using mine - check the link in my sig.

one query per forum.

Isn't it actually one query per thread displayed?

I'm assuming that you are pulling from the first post, and not dumping this information into its own table.

I'd love to use this, but I also don't want a bazillion queries running on my site.

I installed it, well, I will soon ;)

I downloaded this hack cause the other one was a bit confusing to understand :p

nicksaunders made the same hack, but which only uses 1 query or so I think. :)

unfortunately for all of us, it also would require mod_rewrite and/or the disabling of the coveted DOT icons :(

If only there could be peace in the world... <sniff> :)

Use nicksaunders';)

If there was a way to still enable the dot icons and use nicks' at the same time, that would be awesome.

This is a good idea, but as we mentioned, depending on how many threads you allow to be displayed on each page, there are that many queries added to your page totals.

On a large site, you would see massive bogdown issues, as this would essentially double the amount of queries per page :(
