Hover boxes are a great way to grab your visitors' attention, as they change appearence when visitors hover over them. When visitors move their cursors over hover boxes, they change to reveal different colors, elements, and animation.
Hover boxes can bring life to your site, as well as encourage interactivity from your visitors.

Switching between regular and hover view

When viewing a hover box in the Editor, there are two tabs:

  • Regular: How the box looks before a user has moved their cursor over it.
  • Hover: How the box looks when a user hovers their cursor over it.
Switching between Regular and Hover view allows you to seperately edit each view of the box with ease.
To switch between each view, click the box, then select either the Regular or Hover tab.

Hover boxes on mobile

Hover boxes are displayed on your mobile site, unless you choose to hide them from the mobile Editor. 
As visitors cannot hover on mobile devices, the regular mode is automatically displayed. This cannot be changed. However, you can re-add elements you have added to hover from the Hidden Elements panel.
