How to get the Tooltip-plug in to work?


I installed the Tooltip plug in on our Atlassian Confluence 5.4.3 server.

But when i try to add a tooltip to some text and klick on the submit button, nothing happens at all.

I can quit the dialog by hitting cancel only.

Did I miss something?

thanks in advance

kind regards


I'm using the latest Firefox to browse with, but i tested chrome as well and it did not work.

Hi Michael. Sorry to hear you're having issues. Have you followed the instructions in the documentation? Please specify the dialog that you're using and the values you're entering.

Hi Michael

I use the link dialog as described in the documentation. The data i enter is normal text (no special caracters).

At the bottom the save button is highlighted but when i press it nothing happens. i need to say its not labeled 'save' but 'Einfügen'. could it be that there is a lanuage issue?

Hi Michael,

I  don't think it's a language issue because I was able to switch my browser language and I had no issues. Can you confirm you entered both a tooltip text value as well as the link text? See image below:

If you're still having issues, you can fill out this form and we can set up a screen share. Please also indicate the version of Confluence you're using.


This issue has been resolved with the Tooltips 1.3 release. Thanks for the feedback!
