Hover FirstName LastName

edited January 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I've seen this on a theme before, but it would be nice to have it as an extension, so as to work with any theme: when you hover on someone's username, it should display their full name in a tooltip (or whatever they're called) seems pretty simple, right? **Edit: and possibly their role, too


  • I'm on it.
  • and this is why I absolutely love vanilla!
  • I think I'll limit it to only activate in discussions because it might get in the way otherwise.
  • yea, it would be kinda pointless on an account page, and on a list of discussions; well, there's no reason you'd need to know who it was that started the discussion, posted last, and their role... in the future, you should make it customazable: where it shows up, & what it shows.
  • Sure. I'll get the main thing out first and then future versions can have extra functionality.
  • mmk, just making sure you weren't planning on abandoning it...
  • Done.

    But it hasn't been fully tested. There are potentially a number of things that could go wrong. I've got a chemistry exam tomorrow so I can't do much in the way of bugfixes right now but keep me posted and I'll do what I can, when I can.
  • Also, I should probably add that my next project will be a complete rip-off of [-Stash-]'s jQuery extension except it will be for MooTools instead.
  • and then you'll jump this one over to the mootools / vanilla extension instead of including mootools?....?...

    Yup, and a few of my secret projects. The problem with MooTools is you can download loads of different 'flavours' of it so you just get the functions you want. However a lot of them overlap (like the core functions) and so every extension that uses MooTools will be adding a ~20kb javascript file to the head. That can really have an effect on loading times especially if you've got like 3 extensions all using their own flavour of MooTools.
  • hmm, interesting; so you'll make an extension that just has everything in mootools any vanilla addon could possibly need...
  • Yeah pretty much, I won't have the entire MooTools download included in the header of every page 'cos that would be ~50kb. Instead I think I'll have the option to select the parts of MooTools you need (exactly like its download manager) and then extensions can specify which options they need turned on.
  • sweet...
