What jQuery plugin is used to display the user card and tag information pop-ups? I was convinced one of the team posted details about the implementation before but my google and SO searching skills are failing me today.

I am considering implementing a similar feature for a in-house project and I am looking for a starting point.

  • @dystroy Correct. But I didn't want a working fiddle :) I wanted to determine if I needed to figure it out myself. Jul 19, 2012 at 9:59

As far as I could delve into the code and see, it's not using any plugin just custom code and ordinary jQuery animation.

The function used is called MagicPopup, it's part of the full JavaScript code used in the site and is publicly available.

  • I suspected as much, I suspect the plugin I am referring to is something else one of the developers referred to once before. Jul 19, 2012 at 7:06
