Hovering tooltips not loading...
Return to board index
Problem seems simple...
I load up wowhead, click new badge loot, and when I mouse over one of the items, the hovering tooltips that are supposed to appear at the cursor do not.
This is with any item I attempt to mouse over from any page of the entire site.
The problem happens cross-browsers. I have tried IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Netscape all with the same problem. I have uninstalled anti-virus problems, disabled firewalls, disabled no script, removed and reinstalled flash, and java runtime environments, removed popup blockers, removed and reinstalled each of the browsers listed with their newest versions from the webpage. Run full scans on my hard disks for trojans/ spyware, sweeped my system registry for invalid/ old keys that might have been causing
to go wrong. System is clean, no viruses/ spyware/ trojans.
I went to other sites (i.e. thottbot, wowdb) their hovering tooltips are working. I checked to see if wowhead.com domain was blocked on any permissive security settings in each of my browsers. Nothing. I check my HOSTS file for entries relating to wowhead. Nothing.
I'm pulling my hair out here guys! Anyone have a clue on what may be causing this? I love the site, and just want to get it working! Anyone else having similar issues?
same problem here. on several computers now.
one is Vista, one XP. both IE7. must be a windows update somewhere....
the tooltips in the talent calculator still work though.
I went through a similiar process to find out what was going on. do you happen to use Ad Muncher or something similiar for filtering? some of the no script things might work the same way.
anyhow seems that was the source of my problems. if you use it, this is what worked for me. add ".wowhead.com" to My Filters with a category of "No filtering on URL".
that way you don't have to shutdown Ad Muncher everytime you want to use wowhead.
more detail if interested-
you can disable the filtering of Ad Muncher, refresh the page and it loads it without all the java script added to the html source. you'd think it was turned off then. thats what i thought. it seems that the part yanking out the js tooltips still functions, even though you say stop, unless you close the browser and reopen it. it still functions after a refresh even with the software diabled.
now why the tips on the talent calculator still worked, i have no idea. i would guess the way wowhead displayed item tips recently changed. i had not updated my definations since Jan and the tips stopped working just last week. friday or saturday time frame. and the change was snagged by a filter. or in your case, perhaps no script. (but i would think a lot of people are using Moz with no script, so there would be more chatter about it)
anyhow, even if you don't use that, it might be something similiar. hope you get something out of the above...
I think this may have something to do with us changing to a new server. Have you tried clearing your browser's cache?
