How to add tooltip to link or url

The documentation suggests

   You can append a link tip, which appears as a tooltip. Example: [pagetitle#anchor|link tip]

However, when I try this, it simply does not work. The URL appears as a non-existing target. I have also tried several variations using the Insert URL GUI, without success. I am however able to insert those as <a> tags with href and title to make a tooltip to work in the source editor, but that defeats the benefits of relative links to internal page references.

Anyway to get this inserted correctly?

Please link the documentation you are referencing and please also post the version of software you are using.

There may be a bug here, I get really inconsistent results when trying to use tooltips.

Try the free Tooltips add-on if you're still having trouble.
