How to Open a Popup on Mouse Hover with Nelio Popups

Nelio Popup makes it easy to trigger popups when a visitor hovers over on an element on your site. Add more interactivity to your pages with this feature.

Using Hover Trigger

The mouse action trigger lets you display your popup based on mouse hovering over elements of your site. When the visitor lands on a page and hovers over an element you set in the settings, it triggers the popup.

When you are ready to use the hover trigger, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Nelio Popups » All Popups and edit the one you want.
  2. In the editor sidebar, go to the Settings panel, and open the Triggers tab.
  3. Add or modify a trigger by selecting ‘Mouse action’.
