Subheading Underline Animation Under Text Only

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://onyxhive.com.au/cakes

Hey Guys,

Two things

I am trying to make the animation of my underline to just underline the word only not the whole box on a vertical list. This is my code:

//Subcategory Underline Animation
.category-item::after {
  content: '';
  background: #fff; //color
  height: 2px; //thickness
  width: 0;
  display: block;
  padding-top: 0px !important;
  transition: width 0.2s;
}

.category-item:hover::after {
  display: block;
  width: 100%;
}

But when I add this code:

.category-item {
  display: inline-block;
}

It underlines the words only which I wanted but now the subcategories are in a horizontal list, I need to keep it vertical.

I can't find a solution

  1. How do I make the underline animation underline the word only and not the full box?
  2. How do I make the underline closer to the word? I feel the underline is way too separated from the word, I would like it at least 2-3px closer to the word


Thanks

Hi!

Thanks for the tinkering!

I wanted the underline to be with the subcategories on the left, not the drop down menu.

Edit: I half fixed it, its now going to 55% of the width not 100%. But would be nice to have it the width of each text

Try

  content: none;
}

.category-item a {
  display: inline-block !important;
}
.category-item a::after {
  content: "";
  background: #fff;
  height: 2px;
  width: 0;
  padding-top: 0px !important;
  transition: width 0.2s;
  display: block;
  position: absolute;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

.category-item a:hover:after {
  width: 100% !important;
}

Hope it helps you
