Getting feature image styled hover over to work on normal images

  • Creator
  • #380


    I’m trying to replicate the effect where the feature image of a post does the opacity fade thing and an icon appears over the top of it in the html of a normal page (I want some post grids with headings and some without). Is there a simple way to do this through some html class tag or something? I’ve tried and failed to figure it out from reading the CSS code.

    Also 50 bonus points for a short list of useful tags like that. It took me a few hours to figure out the “pretty” class but I’m pretty glad I did.

    Big fan of your work too and the general way you conduct yourself. Keep it up.

    Cheers, Matt

    Hello Matt,

    Unfortunately there’s no real way easily implement this. The HTML markup to accomplish that effect is sort of complicated. I haven’t set this up in a way where you can just use it anywhere.

    One thing you might consider where you can get this effect outside of featured images of post grids, is to insert a standard WordPress gallery; that’s really the only other way to get this effect. This is what I mean by standard gallery —

    Additionally, if you link an image manually to a lightbox (like in this video), there will be a “fade” effect on hover, but it’s not going to be exactly the same as the featured images, as there will be no icon.

    These little styles and tidbits are shown here:


    Ah, that’s a shame. I’ve tried playing around with the gallery and the light box settings and it doesn’t quite give the effect I am after. No big deal, it’s just a nice-ety after all. I’ll work with what’s available.

    Big thanks for the prompt reply.  Take it easy 😀
