Creating a colour block on image overlay

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.aestory.com


I'm having difficulties with creating colour blocks on image overlay.

I found code and entered it in the injection custom css of the page (aestory.com/explore) which worked but doesn't on an other page (aestory.com/stories). It worked for a moment but the code I used affected both pages.

I want to create colour block when hovering on an image (poster, for example) on two different pages (two different colours).

Thanks in advance!

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

Here is the code I used:

@media only screen and (min-width: 660px) {
.design-layout-poster .image-card-wrapper {
  visibility: hidden; 
  opacity: 0;
  transition-duration: .3s;

.design-layout-poster:hover .image-card-wrapper {
  visibility: visible; 
  opacity: 1;
  background-color: hsla(193, 80%, 14%, 1);

I also would like to apply this to the "shop" page.

With Story Page, You can add some blank character for Image 2, the code will work.

With shop page, it looks like you solved?

The problem has sort itself out, weirdly. But for the shop page, I'd like to have the image overlay with the title below the image. With this template I can only have the title on the image overlay.

I don't think the code works for the "shop" page as the images are not poster block.
