Introducing New Balloon Module
In January this year, we unearthed this module and decided to finally finish it. Even though we thought the module was almost ready and a few small tweaks were only needed, we found out we were wrong. While testing, we found a lot of issues, but we were determined to fix them all and build a module that would allow you to create tooltips easily.
We have updated the Divi Pixel Roadmap page with all coming and planned features and modules, so if you are eager to see what’s coming, check the Plugin Roadmap.
The sky is the limit!
In Content Settings, we can find a few options where we set our tooltip Selector, Placement, Animation, Content Type, and Alignment. We have two options for Content Type: we can select Manual Content or Divi Library Item. If we choose Manual Content, we can then add Icon/Image, Title, Description, and Button and style the tooltip on a page where we have added the module. The Manual Content type should cover most of the use cases.
For more complex tooltips we can choose Divi Library as a Content Type. This allows us to build our tooltip using the Divi Builder by saving the layout/row/module to the Divi Library and by selecting it in Balloon module Content Type settings.
Trigger tooltip on any element you want
To add a tooltip to our page, we need to add the Balloon module and define its Selector. We can use a class like .my-balloon or element ID which would look like #my-balloon. In the next step, we need to add this class/ID to the module/element on our site which will trigger the tooltip.
In the below sample we’ve added Balloon and Button modules to our layout. The Balloon module will display a dummy element that can be customized and will be shown when we hover or click on the element with our Selector. In Balloon Content Settings we need to define our selector, and finally, we need to add this selector to the module where we want to trigger the tooltip. To do that, we need to open the Button module settings, go to the Advanced/CSS ID & Classes field and add our selector to the CSS ID or CSS Class field.
