Hover text over post image in wordpress


Staff member
I've been trying to find a good, simple solution for this for days now, and I'm coming up empty handed.

I'm trying to make a blog in wordpress, that currently has excerpt with images on the front page. The images are not featured images and they link to the full post. What I really want is for "read more" to appear when i hover over the post image on the front page.

Ideally, I would love to implement one of these codrops hover effects (<a href="http://tympanus.net/Development/HoverEffectIdeas/" rel="nofollow">http://tympanus.net/Development/HoverEffectIdeas/</a>) on the post images if it's possible. I'm very much a newbie to wordpress, so I don't know where to put what code.

But any help would be greatly appreciated.
