Add Underline link Hover Effects in Blogger & WordPress

To add the link hover effect in Blogger, log in to your Dashboard and click on the theme menu.

Now in the drop down menu backup your theme code and than click on “Edit HTML” option.

Now you need to paste the below CSS code above the </style> tag or ]]></b:skin> tag.

a:after{content:'';position:absolute;width:100%;transform:scaleX(0);height:2px;bottom:0;left:0;background-color:#c44341;transform-origin:bottom right;transition:transform .25s ease-out}
a:hover:after{transform:scaleX(1);transform-origin:bottom left}

Or paste it above the </body> tag by warping the CSS code with style tag.

Here, you need to add the class of your post body section to target the links inside the post and exclude other links on your website. I have shown how to get the CSS class using the inspect element of chrome.

Some common Post Body class in Blogger are .postBody , .post-body , .entry-content like this.

To add the link hover effect, just copy the above code, add the post body class of WordPress and paste it in the additional CSS section.
