Mode Select whether the tooltips should show on mouse click or hover.

With the sticky mode, the tooltip will show on hover and hide on click or timeout.

Options: Hover, Sticky, Click
Timeout Set the timeout (in milliseconds) after which the tooltip should hide. The timeout is reset when hovering over the link or tooltip.
Disable on Components Select in which frontend components NOT to enable the use of this extension.
Remove in Disabled Components If selected, the plugin syntax will get removed from the component. If not, the original plugins syntax will remain intact.
Enable in administrator If enabled, the plugin will also work in the administrator side of the website.

Normally you will not need this. And it can cause unwanted effects, like slowing down the administrator and the plugin tags being handled in areas you don't want it.
Place HTML comments By default HTML comments are placed around the output of this extension.

These comments can help you troubleshoot when you don't get the output you expect.

If you prefer to not have these comments in your HTML output, turn this option off.
