Are you looking for new and creative ways to showcase features and/or products on your web pages? If so, keep reading because in this post, we’ll show you how to display features in hover tabs using Divi’s built-in options only. The possibilities you have with this approach are endless and they will surely allow you to understand Divi on a deeper level. The tab hover effect will only occur on hover-friendly desktop environments. When the hover tabs are being viewed from smaller screen sizes, the features will be listed in their original form.
