Lorebook tooltips


Recommended Posts

As far as I am aware, if the javascript is included in the page then any link to the lorebook such as http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Skill:Shocking_Touch will result in the tooltip.

You could do as I did on our old kin forums and introduce some BBCodes for [skill]Shocking Touch[/skill] for example that creates the link for you.

Yeah, the BB code thing was roughly what I was thinking of. Seems easier than going to the lorebook every time to search for the link, especially with the current Turbine site's speeds. :P Sounds neat overall. I wonder if that'd slow down this forum, though, since it depends on the other site's speed. And as I already mentioned, Turbine's sites are just awful slow.

I've written a greasemonkey script for that a few years ago. With this script you can have these tooltips on any site you like.

Greasemonkey works with injecting javascript on client-side.

Greasemonkey (Firefox-Addon)

Userscript (Save it in a text file. Filename MUST end with ".user.js" i.e. "lorebook_tooltip.user.js". Finally install the userscript by simply opening it in FF after you've installed greasemonkey before.):

// ==UserScript==

// @name           Lorebook cluetip

// @namespace      lotrocommunity.com

// @description    Tooltip fuer Lotro Items per Ajax aus dem Lorebook

// @include        http://lotrocommunity.com/*

// ==/UserScript==

var GM_JQ = document.createElement('script');

GM_JQ.src = 'http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.pack.js';

GM_JQ.type = 'text/javascript';


function GM_wait() {

	if(typeof unsafeWindow.jQuery == 'undefined') {


	} else {

		jQuery = unsafeWindow.jQuery;





function letsJQuery() {


	jQuery("<div>LOREBOOK Tooltip is running!</div>")

		.css({padding: '10px', background: '#0C2B62', color:'white', position: 'fixed',top: '0', left: '0', 'z-index': '66', width: '99%'



		.animate({opacity: 1.0}, 1000)



		"<script src='http://content.turbine.com/sites/lorebook.lotro.com/js/onering.js'> </script>"




Tooltip may look a bit ugly on some sites (especially the window-borders). This is due to sideeffects with the site-css where the tooltip is injected. But better than nothing ...

I would recommend not enabling it here though. I'm working on a feature for this, that doesn't require lorebook ;)

It's more a temporary solution rather than an alternative to what you do. But until it's ready we have something what makes it a little bit more comfortable here. And disabling the userscript is a few clicks then ... :-)

I saw the tooltips in this post.

But (see included pic) it's not full size (yet).

Because of the nature of the mouse-over, i can't scroll the popup (if i move my pointer from the link, the popup is a goner)


Using FF 4.01.

Dunno if the script is finished already, but i consider this to be a bug report ;)

Well im not really talking about the names, but icons for the

[item][/item] and [armour][/armour]

Didnt know these codes, till i quoted MueR's text.

Would be nice to be able to type "perfect pie", select it and to click the "item tooltip" icon on the toolbar.

This will inform other users you can make the tooltips too.

They are indeed the same. I added those two for testing purposes a while ago and later made them redundant :P I'll be adding them to the editor soonish. It's still in development though, as for example item sets are not supported yet.

What's the difference between using a LOTRO Armour tag and a LOTRO Item tag?

using armour: Turanc. using item: Turanc. If they're the same then why have both?

I'm guessing whilst Turanc may fall under both catagories on the lorebook stuff like

Ancient Silver Inlay


Edit: Muer answered, I was wrong!

Very true but aren't all armour in fact items? Anyway as MueR stated the current implementation was part of his testing and will be replaced, presumably with a nifty button.

edit: half wrong maybe ;)
