How to Add Hover Social Icons to Team Member Images with Divi | Elegant Themes Blog

When building your about page, you might consider adding your company’s different team members in a showcase. When starting that design process, you’ll notice that three things can’t be missing off the bat: an image, a name and a position. But if you want to highlight your team members even more, you can consider adding their social network links to the design as well. Of course, you could go about it the old-fashioned way and add a Social Media Follow Module below the person’s name and position. However, you can also choose to add a tiny bit of interaction by triggering the social icons as soon as someone hovers one of the person images. In today’s tutorial, we’ll show you exactly how to do that using Divi. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.

Let’s Start Recreating!

Add Section #1

Start by adding a new section to the page you’re working on. Open the section settings and change the background color.

Move on to the section’s design tab and change the spacing settings next.

Continue by adding a new row using the following column structure:

Add Text Module #1 to Column

Add H1 Content

Add a first Text Module to the row’s column with some H1 content of your choice.

H1 Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the H1 text settings accordingly:

Add Divider Module to Column

Change the sizing settings too.

Add Text Module #2 to Column

Add Description Content

The next and last module we need in this row is another Text Module with some description content of your choice.

Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the text settings as follows:

Add another section right below the previous one and use a gradient background for it.

Modify the spacing settings next.

Continue by adding a new row to the section using the following column structure:

Open the row settings and change the sizing settings as follows:

Add Social Media Follow Module to Column 1

Add Social Networks of Choice

The first module we need in our row is a Social Media Follow Module in column 1. Add the social networks of your choice.

Remove Each Social Network Background Color Individually

Then, open each social network individually and remove the background color.

Add Link to Each Social Network Individually

Add a corresponding link to each social network too.

Default Background Color

Then, go back to the general module settings and apply the following background color:

Hover Background Color

Change the background color on hover.

Background Image

Then, upload a background image.

We’re changing the border settings as well.

Use another border color on hover.

CSS Class

Then, go to the advanced tab and apply a custom CSS class.

Hover Before Element

And complete the module settings by enabling the hover setting on the before element and copy-pasting the following lines of CSS code:

Add Person Module to Column 1

Add Content

The next and last module we need in column 1 is a Person Module. Add some content of your choice.

Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the text settings as follows:

Title Text Settings

Style the title text next.

Position Text Settings

Then, modify the position text settings.

And complete the module settings by applying the following border settings:

Remove Remaining Columns of Row

Once you’ve completed the modules in column 1, you can remove the two remaining columns of the row.

Clone Column Twice

Reuse column 1 by cloning it twice.

Clone Entire Row

Then, clone the entire row as many times as you need.

Change All Duplicate Content

Social Media Follow Links

Of course, you’ll need to modify all duplicate content, starting with the social network links in each duplicate Social Media Follow Module.

Social Media Follow Background Images

Then, change the background image in each Social Media Follow Module.

Person Module Content

And complete the changes by modifying the content in each Person Module.

Add Code Module Below Last Text Module in Row #1 of Section #1

Now, to make sure each social network changes styles as soon as the entire module is hovered, we’ll need a few lines of CSS code. We’ll place this code inside a new Code Module which we’ll add to the first section, right below the description Text Module.

Add CSS Code

Copy-paste the following lines of CSS code and you’re done:

In this post, we’ve shown you how to get creative with your team member showcase. More specifically, we’ve shown you how to trigger social icons when you hover one of the team member’s images. This results in a subtle but fun interaction that you can use for any kind of website you build. You were able to download the JSON file for free as well!
