    I'm thinking of developing a simple "tooltip help module".
    It should work like this: Next to certain items in the ISPConfig 3 Interface a questionmark symbol should appear. Upon mouseover a tooltip should pop up, with a help text / explanation.

    For example under "Sites -> Websites -> Add new website" there could be questionmarks next to the items "Traffic Quota" and "Harddisk Quota", explaining what this means, and how to set it.

    I think this could be useful for unexperienced customers. What i wanted to ask is, if such a module, or a similar module has already been developed by someone? Or if anyone can think of a better way to aid unexperienced users with the settings in ISPconfig.

    best regards

    I think its a great idea. Would have to be a separate theme otherwise any changes you made would be overwritten at the next upgrade if you made the changes to default.

    ISPConfig 3.0.5 contains already a tooltip help module, so no need to develop another one. The texts for the fields get currently written.

    Where can we find out more info about this? I don't see any tool tips in the websites section when logged in as a user. I have 3.0.5 RC1.

    Wow, that's great. I'm glad i asked before i started coding away. :)

    Any predictions as to when this will be available in a stable version of ispconfig?

    Currently it is used in the billing module (i.e., in the upcoming version), but the tooltip code is part of ISPConfig itself.
