Interactive Visual Guide Plugin For Bootstrap - jQuery Tour

A jQuery plugin to create an accessible, interactive visual guide using Bootstrap popover component that lets your users guide through / scroll between new features and functions in your web app.

More features:

  • Easy to create custom, dynamic steps in the JavaScript.
  • Smart position depending on the screen size.
  • Allows to smoothly scroll between steps on long web page.
  • Allows to store the current guide state using HTML5 storage.
  • Keyboard interactions.
  • Lots of customization options and callback functions.
  • Compatible with Bootstrap 3/4.

Basic usage:

1. Load the jQuery Bootstrap Tour's JavaScript and CSS files into your Bootstrap project.

<!-- Stylesheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/bootstrap.min.css">
<link href="bootstrap-tour.css" rel="stylesheet">
<!-- JavaScript -->
<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script src="bootstrap-tour.js"></script>

<!-- Stylesheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap-tour-standalone.css">
<!-- JavaScript -->
<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="bootstrap-tour-standalone.js"></script>

var myTour = new Tour({
    steps: [
      element: "#logo",
      title: "Logo Element",
      content: "This is step One",
      placement: "bottom",
      // more step options here
      element: "h1",
      title: "jQuery Bootstrap Tour",
      content: "This is step two",
