issue with tooltips

    hello – i have noticed using the graphine WP theme that any tooltip plugin i use will place the tooltip directly over the item rather than above it. when i switch back to a default wordpress theme, all the tooltip plugins work just fine.

    has anybody else noticed this behavior?

    Can you recommend a specific tooltip plugin (or two) that we can test this out with?

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=tooltip

    has 17 pages of results.

    i think i now understand what is happening. while logged into WP, when a page opens up, WP puts a toolbar at the top of the page. this toolbar is obviously only there while logged into WP and disappears once i log out of WP.

    i think the graphine theme may not be taking that into account, but there is no reason to, really, since its only there during development and only for the WP developer.

    there is a very simple workaround: open the page in a different browser, or log out of wordpress.

    I think the official name is the ‘admin bar’.

    In what way? It doesn’t really interact with themes, in my experience, as long as themes don’t interact with any back end functions or css classes or id’s.

    Just a side-note.

    You can disable the toolbar when logged in under Users > Your Profile. Scroll down to “Show Toolbar when viewing site” and uncheck.

    No need to logout or change browser.
