Hide title from tooltip

I’m making a tooltip using CSS. Now using the following html code

<div title: "Hide title from tooltip">
</div>

and the following CSS

.progress3{
  display: inline;
  position: relative;
}


.progress3:hover:after{
  background: #333;
  background: rgba(0,0,0,.8);
  border-radius: 5px;
  bottom: 26px;
  color: #fff;
  content: attr(title);
  left: 20%;
  padding: 5px 15px;
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 98;
  width: 220px;
  content: attr(title);
}

.progress3:hover:before{
  border: solid;
  border-color: #333 transparent;
  border-width: 6px 6px 0 6px;
  bottom: 20px;
  content: "";
  left: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 99;
}

Now it works, when I hover over it shows the tooltip, but it also shows the title… How do I remove what’s circled in orange in the image below.

## solution

Simply don’t add the content via the title attribute, change it to something like data-tooltip.

.progress3:hover:after {
  content: attr(data-tooltip);
}

jsFiddle example

You could use JS/jQuery, but given the approach you are taking, it is impossible to hide/remove it while keeping functionality as you would then have nothing to add via CSS..

HTML

<div data-tooltip="This is some information for our tooltip." class="progress3"> </div>

CSS

.progress3 {
  position: relative;
  width: 100px;
  height: 100px;
  background: red;
}

.progress3:hover:after {
  background: #333;
  background: rgba(0,0,0,.8);
  border-radius: 5px;
  bottom: 26px;
  color: #fff;
  content: attr(data-tooltip);
  left: 20%;
  padding: 5px 15px;
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 98;
  width: 220px;
}

.progress3:hover:before {
  border: solid;
  border-color: #333 transparent;
  border-width: 6px 6px 0 6px;
  bottom: 20px;
  content: "";
  left: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 99;
}
