[Resolved] Bootstrap tooltip not working correctly

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I would like to use Bootstrap's "tooltips" feature on my site. I have added the markup but the tooltips do not appear.

Solution: You have the markup correct:

<a href="javascript:void(0);" data-placement="right" data-toggle="tooltip" title="Valeur de la quote-part après expertise">Estimation Q/P</a>

However, you must also initialize the tooltips using JavaScript. Add the following code to your View JS panel or Content Template JS panel:

jQuery(document).ready(function () {

Estimation Q/P

Thank you


Hi, the markup looks okay but I can't see any initialization code. According to the Bootstrap docs, you must initialize tooltips yourself using JavaScript - they aren't automatically added based on markup alone. See "Opt-in functionality" here: hidden link

Their code uses the common "$" namespace, but when using Views, you should use the "jQuery" namespace instead of "$" to prevent conflicts. Always wrap your code in a document ready handler. Example:

jQuery(document).ready(function () {

Thank you
