AH-O₂ Plugin update

Hey lurkers and AH-O2 peeps —

I made a couple minor changes to the pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party. One was merging a pull request from @ninnypants that fixed the tooltip issue (tooltip on the Help element on the Plugins page wasn’t displaying). Now that that’s fixed, we have something we can actually look at. Hovering over the Help will display the tooltip. It’s unstyled and ugly (CSSCSS CSS is an acronym for cascading style sheets. This is what controls the design or look and feel of a site. peeps, here’s your chance to contribute code), but it’s there and we can start to see what things might look like.

We talked yesterday about eliminating the icon entirely. (The reason there’s a big HELP there, by the way, is because there’s an <i> tag wrapped around the “Help” which is still contained within that <h2> which is what makes it so big.) @ninnypants said that would be pretty simple but the js would need to be tweaked a bit. (@brainfork if you want to look into that catch up with @ninnypants.)

Now for the people who’ve been watching this from the periphery —

If you grab a copy of what is in the repo right now, and go to the Plugins page, you’ll see what I’m talking about above. For the tooltips, wherever we want to put a tooltip, we need to define that space in the javascriptJavaScript JavaScript or JS is an object-oriented computer programming language commonly used to create interactive effects within web browsers. WordPress makes extensive use of JS for a better user experience. While PHP is executed on the server, JS executes within a user’s browser. https://www.javascript.com/. file. So this is why we want to go through all the admin pages, figure out what help we have and what elements on those pages might require (or benefit from) tooltips as well as what the existing help content gives us that could be adapted to tooltips. Previously, this was all sort of abstract, since there wasn’t anything you could actually see to demonstrate what we’re going after.

I think the help overview is probably easier to grasp since it is pretty similar to the overview in the existing help tabs and is also similar to the dashboard welcome screen, but when we’ve got that implemented in the plugin, I’ll post another update to illustrate what we’re going for there.

For those of you who haven’t (or don’t wanna) download the plugin, here’s a screenshot of what we got:
