WordPress Glossary Plugin (CMTG) - Troubleshooting - Compatibility with Other Glossary and Tooltip Plugins and Themes

Plugin and theme compatibility

Back to User Guide

Different tooltip plugins usually use very similar methods of passing the displayed data. That’s the biggest reason why running more than one tooltip plugin is a bad idea.

So if you’re using WordPress Glossary plugin, you have to be sure to disable/remove all other tooltip plugins/functionality for the expected experience.

There are three groups of tooltip functionalities:

  1. Plugin – usually with the word “tooltip” in the name – it’s enough to deactivate it.
  2. Good Theme functionality – usually there’s an option to disable.
  3. Bad Theme functionality – when there’s no option to remove, eg. when theme is built with JS framework which comes bundled with the tooltip functionality.

Removing the tooltip functionality from the last group is the most challenging as it requires the code manipulation.


You can find out if the theme is using the foundation.js file by looking or searching through the themes folder. Before making changes to the theme files, always create a backup.

To remove the tooltip functionality from foundation.js you have to remove the lines starting from:

;(function ($, window, document, undefined) { 'use strict'; Foundation.libs.tooltip = { name : 'tooltip',


reflow : function () {} }; }(jQuery, window, window.document));
