Archtypon's Horizontal – A RapidWeaver Slider With A Difference

Horizontal from Archtypon, Review By Rob Hall, CEO at rjh Web Design Rating: 3 out of 5. Horizontal can add up to 100 blocks of content to a slider.

Horizontal adds a container with up to 100 horizontal blocks of content to Stacks pages.
It allows the addition of as many Horizontals as needed on a page and can be used as a stylish image slider or to display any type of content.

The configurable horizontal scroll bar for webkit browses (Safari and Chrome) has options for colours and image for the scroll thumb.

Horizontal is easy and fun to use, it can display directional arrows that can scroll to any block of content with configurable scroll speed, colour and position.
The stack is not responsive.

Horizontal's features in a glance:

  • up to 100 blocks of content
  • configurable blocks width and height
  • webkit scrollbar options
  • directional arrows with positioning
  • fade-out arrows on container scroll
  • configurable speed and target block
  • first block scrolling automatically

Edit: Lucas has reacted to my criticism and has updated Horizontal. It is now responsive.

SEO Optimisation for RapidWeaver

Will Woodgate has been active again and has released two new stacks.

JumpStack
This useful little stack element can perform two different tasks in your website. Firstly it provides a method to quickly setup manual 'previous' and 'next' navigation links in your webpages, for benefit of both website visitors and search engines indexing your website. These navigation links allow you to connect pages in a sequential order. The other function of this stack element is to generate a TOC (table of contents) which can be used to break-up a large block of content into smaller, linkable regions users can navigate more easily.

uTubeFill
uTubeFill is a free stack element for RapidWeaver, that lets you embed a full-sized, responsive YouTube video on a webpage. This video will be stretched to fill the entire page background. uTubeFill is basically a repackaged version of the popular jQuery Tubular plugin. uTubeFill works well with most ThemeFlood RapidWeaver themes, including Breeze, Photogenic and Splash. Several options are provided to adjust the behaviour of the embedded video. Used in moderation, background video can be used to create very distinctive webpages. Storing the video on YouTube keeps things loading fast and reduces bandwidth.
