Bring Back Tooltips in the Calendar Widget 3.0
With Events Calendar PRO 3.0 and above, the Calendar Widget no longer uses tooltips to show event data. We've been seeing a lot of requests to bring that back. If you prefer that to the current behavior, and/or would like it as a setting, please add your voice here.
We truly appreciate everyone’s feedback regarding this feature.
We looked in our logs, and this did get many votes immediately following 3.0s release two years ago. But It has not received much in the way of support since then. Based on the numbers it seems like there is very little current demand for this. Our current light weight widget, along with the improvements we’ve made to it the past couple of years, has filled this need for most everyone.
Please let us know if you disagree. It would also be helpful if you let us know what was useful about the old widget that modern light weight one no longer has.

It exist a problem with tooltip functioning.

Definitely want the tool tip functionality back as a setting/option. We run a multi-site instance and many users are upset they've lost a feature they relied on.

I'd really like the old way as well. I first used ECP when it was on CodeCanyon, and loved the way it worked. Haven't had a client need the calendar widget until now, and now I can't set up the events how I was planning. Please fix!

Much prefer the old way. Just don't know where to go with the new version. Please go back.
Derek Smith commented
Yes please. Ideally as a selectable option on the back-end, but either way I think it makes far more sense to have it on.

YES!! I much prefer the simple calendar grid in the sidebar without the list of events underneath. It takes up way to much space. If not fixed, we will have to scrap EC (and ECP) and find another plugin.
I really wanted this. I must have seen older screen shots with the rollover tool-tips so I had a hard time figuring out that it's not an available feature anymore.
