You'd normally link to an external script inside the <head> of your page or just before the closing </body> tag. I think you need to go into a lot more detail about what you need help with here, as it's not clear. Are you having trouble with using the script itself?
I have the .js script with a icon that I'd like on my site to give users information when they hover over it. I just like to know the code to do so.
What if there is no body tag? It's a .tpl file, with this code given how would I be able to edit the text for each help box?
All web pages have a body tag. If it is not explicitly entered then the browser will add it.
I tested this on a normal page of the site and still will not work (nothing shows up) here's the last code of the page. All the files from the script are javahelp.js, javahelp.css and helpicon.png
<!-- Site Wrapper Ends -->
If your source says src="javahelp.js", also make sure that the javahelp.js is in the same directory/folder as the page on which the link appears.
I don't think this script is meant to work the way I want it to, I'm not even sure how I would be able to edit it all was given is <script src=""></script> and I had plan to set this up with every field I have. Thanks for the help I might try to get my money back.
