tooltips are created using texts from language file, so you could avoid them changing the texts to empty ones. The language files are:


depending on the view you're using (component or module).

If you edit the file you can empty the tooltips you don't want to show. For ex:

LM_LAST_PAGE="Last Page"
LM_LAST_PAGE_TOOLTIP="Go to last page"



and so on.
Hope this helps, best regards

This didn't really work for me. I removed the text between the quotes, but the tooltips are still showing up. I don't mind the tooltips, except they show up behind everything. How do I get them to show up in front. for example, on the list page, when you mouse of the "Add" button, the tooltip shows up behind the search textbox that is right below it. It would be better to have it show up in front so the user can actually read the tooltip.

If tooltips show behind other components, maybe you should change css class ".tip" in template css to make it show above. You could try to write a z-index property in this class as follows:

I like the Tool Tip pop ups, but the background color in the popup box is "clear" and I would like to set it to "white". What is the CSS item to change this please?

tooltips are created using joomla default tooltips, so the style is not set by LM, but for your template stylesheet. You should find at your template css a class regarding this, for ex, at beez_20 default template:


/* ++++++++++++++ tooltip ++++++++++++++ */
border:solid 1px #333;

Hope this helps, regards
