Room 208

Elaborate Burn

Those of you who know me know that I’m not a huge fan of reblogged posts, so I usually hide them from my dashboard. Sometimes, though, I want to take a peek at their contents. I was playing around with some custom CSS and arrived at the following:

.not_mine.is_reblog {
    opacity: 0.1;
    overflow: hidden;
    max-height: 20px !important;
    -moz-transition: all 0.5s linear;
    -webkit-transition: all 0.5s linear;
    transition: all 0.5s linear;

.not_mine.is_reblog:hover {
    opacity: 1;
    max-height: 10000px !important;

There’s a transition rule for general posts already, so all I need to do is override the default styles and styles on hover. [Edit: Tumblr changed the dashboard style sheets to no longer provide a transition by default. I’ve added the appropriate code above.] It’s functional and pretty. Win-win!
