TipsyAPI is a fully customizable jQuery tooltip plugin that supports dynamic content (text, images, videos, etc) and awesome transition effects.

1. Include the jQuery library and jQuery TipsyAPI plugin at the end of the Html page.

<script src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.tipsy.js"></script>

<a tipsy="example">Hover over me</a>

3. Wrap the tooltip content in a container with the same tipsy attribute

<div class="tipsy" tipsy="example">
Your content goes here.

4. Call the plugin on the hoverable element with default settings.
