Description of my issue:

Manage backups display

Under Akeeba V8.0.12 and earlier there is a (?) in front of the description field in each row of the display.

Hovering with the cursor over this (?)  displays the contents of the comments in a pop-up


Since Akeeba V9.0 the (?) has been changed into a (i) and hovering with the cursor over this (i) the pop-up

only displays the word "Comment".

Is it possible to revert to the earlier behaviour with displaying the content of the comments ?

It avoids having to open the "View/Edit" display to actually now what's in the comments.


Kind regards,


Akeeba Staff


we're using Joomla API to display the tooltip. In the latest version of Joomla there was an update on the Bootstrap CSS library, I suspect something else changed.

I'll investigate on this, in the meantime you have to click on the record to see comment contents
