Rollover name popups over photos like Facebook

Rollover name popups over photos like Facebook

I would like to know how in GoLive CS2 I can place my mouse over a person's face in group photo and have their name popup like is done in FaceBook. any help appreciated.


RE: Rollover name popups over photos like Facebook

If you select an image on one of your web pages in GoLive then look in the inspector you'll find a place to enter alt text. Whatever you enter here is the text that will pop-up.

You'll see this when using Internet Explorer, however that's not the standard way to do it, so browsers that follow the standards like Firefox won't show that pop-up text. If you want it to pop-up in all browsers you need to do as follows:

Select your pic from one of the web pages in GoLive and switch to source view. You'll see the image code high-lighted and look like this:
< img="dirpath/pic.jpg" width="60" height="60" alt="person name">

Notice the alt="person name". This is what you entered in the inspector and is what IE will show. For other browsers you need to add title="person name" so it looks like this:
< img="dirpath/pic.jpg" width="60" height="60" alt="person name" title="person name">
