Slider Revolution 5.0 introduced a new way of hyperlinking Layers, called “Actions”.

An “Action” is essentially something that happens when the user interacts with the Layer’s content (clicking the layer, or mouse hovers).

To add a Layer Action, select the Layer on the preview stage canvas, and then from the “Actions” tab, click the “+” button.

Next, choose what type of mouse interaction should be applied to the Layer (click, “Mouse Enter” (mouse-over/hover), or “Mouse Leave” (i.e. mouse-out)

Quick Tip:
To show a “hand cursor” when hovering your mouse over the Layer, apply the settings shown in this screenshot.
