Tooltips

It is now possible to provide mouseovers (tooltips) for items on ZAM's sites for:

To do so, simply add the following html to your site:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://zam.zamimg.com/j/tooltips.js"></script>

The best placement for this is right before the </body> tag. Anywhere inside <body></body> will work, though.

Check the installation instructions if you want a detailed walkthrough.

Who would use this?

Fansites and guild/linkshell/kinship sites and forums as well as other sites who provide news for the games that the tooltips support but don't have a database. It isn't limited to that, though. Anyone is welcome to link to our items and have have our tooltips displayed as a mouseover.

Examples

Check out How to use for an in-depth walkthrough.

How it Works

By adding the script tag above, each page with the tag added will check the HTML in the page it is displaying. When it detects a link to a ZAM item that we display mouseovers for, your site will automatically display them.

Installation Instructions

Not all possible ways are documented here but the list will grow over time, if you wish to add installation instructions for a website platform, add the instructions to the Feedback Forum.
