Hover Highlights – Editor block highlighting

Description

Hover Highlights is a simple WordPress plugin that adds a subtle highlight effect to the Gutenberg/Block Editor. When you hover over a block, it gets highlighted with a dashed outline and a box-shadow. The highlight disappears when you focus on the block to reduce distraction.

This plugin is ideal for content creators who want to visually distinguish individual blocks within the Block Editor.

The code and this readme are mostly written by ChatGPT.

Installation

  1. Upload the hover-highlights folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

FAQ

The highlight effect only appears when you hover over a block. If you’re not seeing the highlight, try moving your mouse over a block.

Is this plugin compatible with other block editor plugins?

Yes, this plugin should work with most other block editor plugins.
