I have four images on my homepage that I have linked to secondary pages. I would like to add a text box that only appears when the mouse moves over the image to let the user know there is a link associated with this image. I have seen the mouse over under animation, but it does not show as an option for text. Thank you.

Hello Fran6251

Yes this would be possible. You would need to add the text box first, then go to More > Advanced > Size and Position and scroll down to where it says "Starts Visible. Turn that setting off. Then, click on the image, go to More > Advanced > Settings. Scroll down and click "Element Behaviors". Click "Add Behavior", and choose the option "Show" > "Other Element". It will ask which element you want to apply this "Show" action to. Click on the text box and click "Apply" in the top right corner. This will bring up a menu that allows you to choose the effect and what will cause that. It sounds like you'll want to choose Element State - Rollover. You'll be able to test it works in the preview page.

I tried your suggestion, but it does not produce what I am wanting.  I have my image which I want to stay visable when the page opens but when you mouse over the image I want it to show the page "New Here" that it is linked to.  Otherwise the visitors will not know what the image is linked to until they click on it.  Hope this makes sense.

Yes, that is exactly the result that the instructions above would create. What happened on your end when you did that, that wasn't what you were wanting?

Eric at HS Tech support walked me through and it is working perfect just like you said it would.  Thanks Elyzabeth.https://community.homestead.com/www.redeemercatawba.com
