Rollover

The Rollover macro lets you easily add CSS rollover effects to your content. This macro requires additional CSS styling, which can be added using the  CSS Stylesheet macro, the  Confluence Stylesheet or a product such as Adaptavist ThemeBuilder.

The instructions on this page use our CSS Stylesheet macro.

With some knowledge of CSS you can create some interesting effects with the Rollover macro.

Examples

The following example shows how to create a basic rollover using the rollover macro and the  CSS Style Sheet macro.

  1. Edit a page and insert a Rollover macro.
  2. In the mandatory  Target ID  field identify the element to which rollover will be applied.

    This serves as the targeting mechanism. In this case, we have a div macro elsewhere on the page with the parameter class name value set to 'test'. The Rollover macro searches for the element and applies the rollover effect to it.

  3. In the Normal CSS class field, enter the name of the class. eg. test that will be applied for the normal (roll-out) state.
  4. In the Roll Over CSS class field, enter the name of the class for the rollover state. eg. rollover.
  5. Save the macro.
  6. Add a div macro, edit it, and give it the same ID as the target ID you used in the Rollover Macro eg. target.
  7. Add the CSS Stylesheet macro and specify the classes .test and .rollover as shown below. This is just an easy example, but a lot more is possible by editing the CSS.
  8. Save the page to see your text with a color background that changes on hover.

Published Result

Example Div macro targeted with a rollover. Colors change when the mouse rolls over the area.

Linking to pages

Set up the macros as above and specify the address as the Link parameter in the Rollover macro. Now when a user clicks the target they are redirected to the link specified.

The link should be a fully qualified web address for external pages, for example,  https://www.adaptavist.com.
