What is a hover effect?

Hover effect is a visual change that occurs when a user interacts with an element on a webpage by hovering over it with a cursor. It can involve changes in color, size, shape, or other visual aspects of the element to indicate that it is being hovered over or interacted with in some way.

How to add a hover effect in BOWWE

  1. Open your project in BOWWE Builder
  2. Select the element you want to edit and go to Widget Styles
  3. Switch tabs between “Basic” and “On hover”
  4. Create an effect by editing styles in separate tabs
  • Basic tab: view of the element before a user interacts with it
  • On hover tab: effect appears when a user hover their cursor over the element

By customizing the elements separately in the Basic and On Hover tabs, you can edit their appearance before and after user interaction. 

Every change you make on basic tab is inherited by corresponding properties in hover tab. If you change something on the hover tab, it doesn't affect styles you set in the basic tab.


Now you know how to add hover effect to your website
