Weebly Tricks #89 - Direction-Aware Hover Effects

Posted by Domingo Tambasacan at 1/07/2015

Direction Aware hover effects - Weebly

I would like to create a separate tutorial for this hover effect though you have already seen it on our Sortable Portfolio. The idea is to let the hover effect follow where your mouse is coming from. The step is basic but the output is awesome and the best of it... everybody can do it.

.da-thumbs {
width: 910px;
height: 450px;
.da-thumbs li a img {
    width: 200px;
    height: 200px;

Blue text - The size of each image.

Where to place these codes? Click Here!

<ul id="da-thumbs" class="da-thumbs">
        <a href="http://www.myweeblytricks.com/">
            <img src="http://mwtdatabase.weebly.com/files/theme/diaw1.jpg" />
            <div><span>Plant trees to save our planet.</span></div>

Red text - The link if you click a photo.
Green text - Your image source.
Yellow text - Your description.

Now to add more image, simple copy the codes from <li> to </li> and paste it after the </li>.


One of the key thing that Weeblers less likely to use is the modernizr. If you're going to remove it, then the effect won't work.

For those... still don't know the 10 Capsulated Tips, I want you to read and understand it because those tips made this plugin possible.

  1. Hello,
    I liked this hoover effect, but can not get it to work.
    I think the file modernizr.custom.97074.js is incorrect, therefore downloaded original file from original location, without the help (I've removed the link at the pictures, it is hoover effect I was looking for) See how this looks when I've uploaded everything: http://onkelole.weebly.com/hover-effekt.html

    Have you modified the original file "modernizr.custom.97074.js" and this is the reason?

    What can I have done wrong? Have you any idea?
    Thank you in advance.
    Good side, a lot of exciting tips :)
