WP jQuery qTip


WP jQuery qTip is a light-weight plugin that uses Craig Thompson’s qTip jQuery plugin to display nice looking, user friendly tooltips. It comes with a handy configuration page, where you can easily change the color of the tooltips and the position. Please note that Craig Thompson is the creator of the qTip plugin.

WP jQUery qTip is a rewrite of JR qTip for WordPress by Jacob Ras to be made compatible with WordPress 3.x.

Note: Version 0.9.0+ requires a minimum of WordPress 3.3. If you are running a version less than that, please upgrade your WordPress install before installing or upgrading.


Support is provided at:


  • WP jQuery qTip Settings - Settings
  • WP jQuery qTip Image Maps - Frontend
  • WP jQuery qTip Title Attribute - Frontend


  1. Upload /wp-jquery-qtip/ directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

That’s it! You can change additional settings under WP jQuery qTip -> Settings.


Q. Why qTip 1.0? Hasn’t it been superseeded by qTip2?

I needed to have the original JR qTip for WordPress plugin run on WordPress 3.x for an upgraded site.
As the plugin hadn’t been upgraded in over 2 years and I saw no immediate replacement, I went ahead
and upgraded the plugin to work on the latest (3.5) WordPress.

But wait, this release has preliminary support for qTip2! I’ll be lookng at qTip2 and see what I can add.
You can continue to use qTip1, I’ll provide backwards compatibility for the foreseeable future.
Expect support for shortcodes at somepoint as well.
