Background Image change as per portfolio page - but on non-portfolio page?

Recommended Posts

Hi, again something I seem to want 7.1 to do (that 7.0 has!): In 7.1 you can make a portfolio start page have a full screen background image with gallery titles within the portfolio displayed in the centre of the page - when you hover over the titles (links) the background changes (a featured image from each gallery). So far so good. However, is it possible to have a similar functionality but with a non-portfolio page, the links of which leading to other pages (not necessarily a gallery)?

I notice this sort of thing can be done with a cover page in 7.0 but their absence in 7.1 seems to make this particular behaviour not immediately obvious to emulate...

I think you misunderstand my question.

I am fully aware how it's done as a portfolio page. My question was how to create the same text-hover effect/background change but as part of a 'normal' non-portfolio page. I like the portfolio hover effect style but dont want the links to go to a gallery but instead, lets say for example, an about page or contact page, or something else...

So, is that possible?

Sorry to bump this, still trying to hunt down a solution but not sure there is one without lots of fiddling around with tons of custom code - something I thought would this platform's strength 😬

You can use Portfolio Page, then share link to page, we can use custom code to change url

Or you can use Text Block + Background Image then follow this guide to achieve similar effect

sorry missed your answer sooner, thanks for that, how does the first one work?

I'll give that link a read and see what I can make sense of!

Just create a portfolio page then play around with all layout (I remember there is 1 or 2 layouts suitable for your case), then share link, we will give code to change url of each item to custom url
