Hello, thank you for the code. A question, How can I wrap my thumbnail with a hyperlink()? Can't find a solution. Thank you

Why need JavaScript? This can be done in pure CSS3, which I done for my project, thanks for your rgba color - I like it.

Actually, you don't need "CSS3", just plain CSS.
Some hover and absolute positioning. All CSS3 would do is ease transition or animation, but functionality can be done with plain ol' css :)

nmk () - 5 years ago - Reply 0


Use it.

.thumbnail {
position:relative;
overflow:hidden;
}

.caption {
position:absolute;
bottom:0;
right:0;
background:rgba(66, 139, 202, 0.75);
width:100%;
height:100%;
padding:2%;
display: none;
text-align:center;
color:#fff !important;
z-index:2;
}

//this is better to stop hover when u do very hover on it .
$( document ).ready(function() {
$("[rel='tooltip']").tooltip();

$('.thumbnail').hover(
function(){
$(this).find('.caption').slideDown(300); //.fadeIn(250)
},
function(){
$(this).find('.caption').slideUp(300,function(){$ (this).stop( true, true )}); //.fadeOut(205) and stop hover
}
);
});

Love this effect. Is there a way to have the text and links at the bottom of the image instead of the top?

Linda Smith () - 5 years ago - Reply 0


you would probably need to modify the top - margin for the .caption class . For example try setting it to 150px;

That didn't work... but I added 100px of padding to the h4 title and it centered the text in the thumbnail.
Thanks for your help!

Thank you for this :)

I have one problem though; I combined your code with this technique: http://untame.net/2013/05/h...
but after the sorting the caption hover no longer works (it is gone). Any idea what could cause that and how to fix it?
