    I asked about a "Tooltip Help Module" a long time ago in this thread:
    I lost track of that, as we didn't really need it urgently back then. However now the issue has come back up, and I wanted to ask what the status on this is? Does this function already exist somewhere? I couldn't find it in the new 3.1 UI.

    The basic tooltip functionality is integrated in ISPConfig since 3.0.5 and is e.g. used by the billing module. We are currently working on a set of tooltips for the whole application as part of the ISPconfig 3.1 manual.

    Ok, thanks for the info Till. I have some more questions regarding this:

    1. Will this set of tooltips be integrated in the first official ISPConfig 3.1 Release, or will we have to wait longer for it? The reason I'm asking is, that we are reworking our FAQ and customer support in general, because many customers have big problems using ISPConfig without issuing a lot of support tickets. So it would be nice to know how if it's worth waiting for your tooltips, or if we should start our own thing..
    2. Do you have any info how I can use the tooltip functionality to write my own tooltips?
    3 If I write my own tooltips, can I do it in a "plugin" kind of way, so the tooltips don't get overwritten everytime I update ISPConfig.

    The tooltips will be part of the ISPConfig manual, not part of ISPConfig tar.gz. As a Howtoforge subscriber, you will be able to use the Tooltips on your server. As far as I know, there is no documentation on the tooltip framework available yet.

    I just cehcked the code of the billing module which uses the tooltip framework. a tooltip can be added in the html template like this:

    <label for="invoice_number_prefix">{tmpl_var name='invoice_number_prefix_txt'} <div class="ttip" title="{tmpl_var name='invoice_number_prefix_ttip_txt'}"></div></label>
