If you have a web application where users need to know few tricks before using it, guiding them in the beginning would be a good idea.

Codrops is sharing a very nice jQuery script that makes creating a chic site tour so easy.

jQuery Site Tour

It works by adding classes (with a specific format) to the elements to be highlighted and configuring them to display any custom text.

The script can work manually by the user clicking prev-next links or totally automated in the pre-defined order.

Tooltips displaying the information can also be customized as color, position and the duration they will be active.
