Topic: Link hover effect

jouvrard pro asked 4 years ago

I try MDBootstrap Free before buy it and I have au problem: I know how to change the background color of columns, etc..., but how can I do to have link background hover effect?

I tried for example with:
<a href="#" class="col-12 py-3 pink">My link</a>

My link background is pink, but with no color change when the mouse cursor si hover it.
I saw the "Bootstrap hover effect" page but it seems very "complicated" juste to have a hover effect on a link, so I thought a simpler solution existed. Maybe not?

Maybe it's a ridiculous question but I can't find the solution after a good search.

Ok, thank you. It would be great  to have this possibility in a future version, for example reduce brightness for hover on a "a" tag. :)

Hi, for sure we will add that possibility in a future version.

Hi, we don't have a good solution of hover effect just for text. You can use this solution: CSS:
.test {
transition: .4s;
.test:hover {
transition: .4s;
background-color: rgba(3, 169, 244, 0.7) ;
HTML: <a href="#" class="col-12 py-3 test">My link</a> Best, Marta
