Creating custom hover over widgets?

The one thing I LOVEEE about Wordpress websites are features like this hover over widget/image style. Wondering if anyone has been able to successful recreate this with CSS in Squarespace?

Yes, this can be achieved with a few lines of CSS that target the element's :hover pseudo-class. For example, in the first screenshot they are simply adding a white background and a box-shadow when a user hovers their pointer over the element.

To achieve this on Squarespace, you'd typically apply this to a summary block item or gallery block item, but it will depend on the layout of your page, and whether you want it to apply to ALL items on ALL pages, or just particular ones.

If you post some more information, including a working link to the page you want to affect, the community can offer some specific guidance.
