This plugin does show the preview tooltip for the DokuWiki pages. When you point on the anchor, [?] sign is displayed. Then, moving the mouse over that sign, you'll see the preview of the page, anchor points to.


  • You can try it at English and Russian pages of The Complete Menu Solution project.
  • Tested with 2006-03-09 DokuWiki version.
  • Plugins depends on RemoteScript plugin.
  • Code is licensed under LGPL 2.


To change styling for the [?] sign and the tooltip, just edit the supplied style.css file.

How to install

  • 2006-09-13 Version 0.2:
    • Completely refactored code to make plugin compatible to Opera.
    • Added workaround for the domTT's bug. It's force the height of tooltip… It does lots of troubles (guess, it'll appear in IE7 too).
  • 2006-09-13 Version 0.1:
    • Released.


Not working in latest version (2006-11-06) - tested in Opera 9 and FF 2 — Tomáš Valenta 2006-11-20 18:44
Thank you, it's because of the gone DOM_TT library. I'll take a look for the replacement — Ilya Lebedev 2006-11-20 20:44

Working version

This would be a very nice plugin. I just installed it, but I see it still is not working. Will there be a working version? Soon? :-)
