I am new to Wordpress and have a "free" account, and was wondering if there was an easy way to get tooltip links to work from wowhead like they do on a lot of sites?

Unless they changed it, Wordpress.com bloggers cannot use the tooltips. If you use Wordpress.org and have your own blog on your own server, then its possible.

Poo. :(.

That's correct. You cannot incorporate the "Powered by" WoWHead script. However, if you enable the Snapshots (Snapz?) plugin for your blog, it will show a preview of the web page when users hover over the item link. Unfortunately, this applies to all your links, so it's definitely a tradeoff.

Wowinsider posted something awhile back about how to get tooltips into your google reader. The same method can be used to display tooltips on wordpress.com blogs.

Note: This does not allow every user to see the tooltips on your wordpress.com blog, unfortunately there is just no way to make that happen. What it does do is allow you to see the tooltips on any wordpress.com. You could certainly add a little "how-to" section on your site for users who are willing. Not the best solution but better than nothing.

Step 1:
Install Firefox (everyone should be using Firefox regardless)

Step 2:
Install the Greasemonkey plugin and restart Firefox

Step 3:
Install the wowhead script for greasemonkey

Step 4:
Right-click the monkey icon in the bottom right corner of Firefox and click "Manage User Scripts." Make sure you have WowheadTooltips selected and click the Add button in the "Included Pages" Section.
Add the following URL:
http://*.wordpress.com/*

Step 5:
Profit ....??

Ta-da

Can anyone tell me how to do this with wordpress.org hosted on my own server? I'm not having a lot of luck :(

You'll need to edit one of the files for the theme you're using, and add the following...

Code:
<script src="http://www.wowhead.com/widgets/power.js"></script>


I believe I added that into the header file - but you'll definitely want to put that in a file that will be 'called' every single time (which is what makes header or footer good options here).

Then to get the pop ups to appear, you'll simply need to link to them in your post. Here's a recent example from one of mine...

Code:
<a href="http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39623">Heroes' Scourgeborne Chestguard</a>


If it's still not playing nice, then there's probably a conflict of some sort between that line of javascript and some other line of script that your page is already calling. Diagnosing and fixing that though is beyond my abilities.

Thanks a lot for your help. Works flawlessly. I had previously tried to add it into the index page rather than the header and it didn't work but putting it in the header does. Thanks for your help once again.
