I would like the tooltip to open to show a couple rows of thumbnail images that the user could then click on and to to another webpage. Is this possible?

Hello Barbara.

Can you clarify your question?
Is your goal:
Adding images in the tooltips which when are clicked redirect the user to another page ?

But it would be multiple images in one tooltip.

More specifically:
One a product page we would like a link to open up a tooltip that shows the other products available and be able to click on each image and go to that product page.

The reason I'm looking at using a tooltip is that I need this menu to appear and disappear (over the top of other info on the page) but stay open long enough for the user to click on an image if they want to. I've tried some other approaches, but although I can get, for instance, a drop down menu to appear, since it would be quite long, if the user needed to scroll the page down to see more of it - the menu disappears. Maybe I'm just not explaining it right. I'm obviously new to all of this.

Hello Barbara.

You can create 2pages:
PageA - The main page where the tooltips will be displayed.
PageB - page with thumbnail images which will play the role of links when clicked and will redirect your client to separate product page.

After that you can apply the tooltips on PageA content and show that PageB inside the tooltips.

Thanks... Getting close!

I made an html page with the thumbnail images. Adding a link on each one to the corresponding product html page.

In the Tooltip window I directed the "content" to that new page with the thumbnails.
The "content type"- I chose "URL".
So now when testing it the thumbnails do show up within the Tooltip. (woohoo!) However, when I click on a thumbnail the corresponding product webpage opens up within the Tooltip. (instead of opening up the product page itself)

Anyway to correct this, or have I got a setting wrong?

Here is the example:

if you want the link to be displayed in new blank page.
<a href="productpage.html" target="_blank">[img]img/Sea_View_1600.jpg" width="400" height="300" /></a>
