With Final Fantasy XIV coming out in just a little over a month, the staff at ZAM felt today was a good day to start giving you all a look at what you can expect with our site. We're very excited about some of the features to come and are anxious to share them with you.

A favorite feature here at ZAM is Tooltips. At first glance, it seems like a simple little mouseover, but it can be a very powerful tool for your fan site or linkshell forum! To find out how you can easily display item stats on your own site, read our full wikibase article on Tooltips.

Tooltips works all over the ZAM site and using it in your site, forums, or blog is a snap. After adding in a simple line of code to your site, all you would need to do is paste the URL of the item into your post and a mouseover of the link will pop-up the item's stats. Examples:

FF Favorites
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=3020001
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=10005410

Weapons
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=4020204
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=4080004

Armor
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=8050451
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=8030714

Foods
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=3010001
http://ffxiv.zam.com/db/item.html?ffxivitem=3010402

Hopefully with the sneak peeks at certain items in our database, you've noticed that the ZAM staff has been very hard at work in preparing the XIV site for all of you. Right now, Tooltips works, but the item pages themselves are not yet available. The item pages will be made available soon. Until then, have fun fiddling around with it!

Those of you that end up utilizing this fun feature, please feel free to post here about it. We want to know how it's working for you! If you have problems, feel free to post about in in our Feedback Forum.

this looks cool - are these things the only things available to look at - or is there somewhere else where we can access tooltips?

These are not the only things available to look at, you'll need to figure out how to find other things. ;)

It's pretty awesome of you guys to offer this to other sites rather than keep it for yourselves.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Hmm, the popup is completely transparant so the tooltip text is hard to read against the rest of the page. It's not just me, right?

You have to play with the numbers at the end and see if they show something when you mouse over. It's a matter of figuring out what positions need to be changed.

That's really cool, it keeps blinking off and on for me for some reason though.
Maybe it's my PC? Using firefox if that matters.

The page will now say "Invalid item" if it doesn't work and "Coming soon!" if it does.
