Revealing or showing something on hover is a very cool, very practical effect. We’re going to go over how you can reveal anything when you hover over the container it’s in – text, icons, images, even whole containers. Which includes anything that is inside of those containers, which means you can use this reveal effect for any kind of content. You can even show products on hover, which will help you make your online store more interesting.

And the effect can be horizontal or vertical. I personally love using it to create cool, interesting menus or clickable content.

We’re going to take a look at how you can do this in Elementor directly but since this is a CSS effect, you can use it anywhere, including with other WordPress page builders. It’s very simple and once you understand the logic behind it, you can replicate it and use it on any one of your websites.
