How to develop an existing category post using Elementor



New Member
Hey guys,

We are trying to achieve a category post box using Elementor.

We attached a gif to illustrate what it is that we desire.
(Quote from Lucifer, the series)

So far we managed to create a list showing 5 bullet points (out of 10 or more).

The next step is to achieve the following:

When the mouse is placed over the image it should expand the list to all of the posts in the category.

How can we achieve the above using Elementor?
(or by using additional plugins?)

Thank you in advance.



Could you help us with some more information about version of
  • wordpress
  • elementor free/pro
  • widgets
  • plugins
  • themes
  • Web browser
  • OS mac/pc/linux
Screenshot or site url which you can add like this ** may help people answer your questions.

I do not see an attached gif. Were you able to figure it out?

Oh, I see. That is unique to me.
This seems to be a nav menu based on categories with a hover effect. I'm not sure how to make that happen.

You are saying that it happens when the image is hovered over. I would look at Unlimited Elements. The free version has a fantastic library of widgets and templates. You may find one of the hover effects or image hover will be helpful.
