Feature Slider for RapidWeaver

The one that got away! A fortnight ago, 1LD released a new stack – Feature Slider – that just arrived in my in-box. Not wanting to deny you a review, I decided "better late than never", so here we go:

Feature Slider is a slider that displays a headline, an icon or an image and a short description with a 'Learn More' button and is ideal for product presentation, or portfolios etc.
Let's say that you're advertising real estate, promoting art, or selling an assortment of products; drop Feature Slider into your Stacks' page and you have the perfect vehicle to do so.


Feature Slider – 1LD
Feature Slider may be configured to display as compact sliders in multiple columns, e.g. to present your staff from multiple departments, or as a full-page slider to present a portfolio. In its base configuration, Feature Slider displays an icon, but is readily set to display an image. The 'Learn More' button can then open a new page (or lightbox) to display more information about the product advertised.

As with all recent 1LD stacks, Feature Slider is fully customisable and the settings panel is a cubit long. Via the child stack settings each slide is individually customisable.

Stack settings
Autoplay – Deactivated by default
Active Slide – Slide that is displayed on page load
Max Width – px
Max Height – px
Radius

Slides
Hide Titles
Hide Descriptions
Hide Icons

Hide Buttons

Feature Slider is yet another 1LD stack that is not only timeless but versatile. I can envisage multiple uses for it. I'm sure you can too.

Multistep Modal for RapidWeaver

Modals. Windows that pop up on a page when a trigger is clicked, when a certain amount of time has passed, or when a certain position on the page has been reached.
A modal can usually display text, images, buttons and contact forms, etc. We've probably all used them to display extra content.

So what is Multistep Modal? Multistep Modal is a new stack from Weavium that does all of the above and more. Multistep Modal is a popup that triggers when a button is clicked, when a specific point on the page has been scrolled to, or after n seconds. O.K. – nothing new there.
However, when Multimodal window opens, you might see a combination of an image, a title and a text. But you will also see a question mark and a link, e.g. "Next".

Clicking the question mark opens up a further window within Multistep Modal. And this window can contain just about anything.
Clicking "Next" reveals what the "Multistep" in the stack's title means – the modal window is part of a slider and can display as many items as you wish.

Muti Modal – Weavium
Multi Modal – WeaviumStack settings
Display – On Toggle, On Scroll To, On Timer.

Align Vertical – Top, Center, Bottom

Z-Index – default 999999

Multistep Modal Slide
Overrides the formatting for each individual child stack

When first dropped onto your page, Multistep Modal is configured as quite a small window. Whilst it is possible to enlarge the stack to fill the page, it is not advisable – it is not (yet?) 100% responsive. I therefore currently recommend restricting the stack's width to mobile format.

Weavium's range of stacks is growing quickly and each stack seems more innovative than the previous. Multistep Modal is no exception.

Presentations With RapidWeaver

If you've always wanted to publish keynotes, such as product presentations or training documents, then InStacks' new StageDive might be the very thing you've been looking for. Dubbed "Online presentations and slideshows for your next keynote" StageDive is an interesting take on Single-Page websites.

StageDive, as its subtitle denotes, is a theme/suite of stacks aimed at building presentations. The advantage over building your presentation with Keynote© or its Micro$oft equivalent, is that you can build your presentation with the app that you use every day – RapidWeaver.

StageDive arrives with its own dedicated theme and a suite of five stacks. The theme automatically adds the default formatting and the navigation to your presentation. Everything else can be designed just as you please. StageDive will allow you to place almost any stack on the page, including 3rd party navigation, or galleries.

The default stacks are: StageDive – the base stack which automatically adds the first child slide, Fixed Position – allows you to place floating stacks such as buttons in the corners of your slide, MediaPlayer – integrates video and audio, Slide – standard child stack and VerticalContainer – arranges slides vertically.
The difference to a standard webpage is that a) Upcoming slides and speaker notes may be may easily be viewed and b) The next slide may be called via the space bar.

StageDive – InStacks

Stack settings
Theme – Choice of nine themes plus 'Theme Builder' (not yet available)
Transition Style – Six transition effects
Transition Speed – Default, Fast, Slow
Centre Vertically – Active by default
Navigation Controls – Active by default
Controls Area – Bottom Right, Edges
Progress Bar – Active by default
Bar Height – px
Page Number – Deactivated by default
Timing – In seconds
Image Border – Deactivated by default

Slide
ID
CSS Class
Background – Theme Default, Custom Colour, Image, Video
Transition Style – Six transition options
Transition Speed – Default, Fast, Slow
Speaker Notes – Deactivated by default

StageDive is ideal for online presentations and if you're actually giving a keynote and have a second monitor, the possibility to view upcoming slides and slide notes is perfect.

50/50 An Innovative Slider For RapidWeaver

Sliders. There are dozens of them available as RW stacks. A slider can be an image slider, it can be a stack slider, it can be a combination of both; so who would have thought that a developer could come up with something new? Well, 1LD certainly has. 50/50 Slider.

50/50 Slider displays a title, a caption text, a button and an image – now you're thinking "Yeah, so do many other sliders!", but this is where the name 50/50 comes into play; one half of the stack displays your text content, the other half displays your image. When you click the stack's navigation button, the text content slides from left to right to reveal the next content – 50/50.

50/50 Slider will fill any container that you drop it into and by adjusting its max width and min height, it can easily fill your screen. On mobile 50/50 transforms to display your image above the text content.

50/50 Slider – 1LD
As we have recently become accustomed to with 1LD stacks: the settings panel reveals a plethora of configuration options, making 50/50 Slider completely customisable. So here's a condensed version of the…

Stack settings
General – Max Width, Min Height, Mobile Point, Radius, Content Align
Slides – Hide Titles, Hide Text, Hide Buttons, Title Font, Text Font, Padding, Title Size, Title Spacing, Text Size, Text Spacing, Button Configuration, Mobile Height for Image
Slide Navigation Configuration
Slide Colours

Slider Item
Image Container
Action Link
Custom Slide Colours


The main stack settings are for the global appearance of the slider, however, each slide child may be customised individually.

1LD has once again produced an innovative stack that is both modern and timeless. This is an effective slider that is simple to configure and will find great popularity.
The only thing that I could wish for is an option to swap the image/text positions…

Scrollers and Quizzes for RapidWeaver

A new developer has quietly slipped into the RapidWeaver fold with the introduction of two interesting stacks. Stuart Marshall. You may have noticed his name on the forums. He's chosen to name his site 'Shaking the Habitual'. Stuart's first stack – Scroller – is as simple as it is effective.

Scroller is a free stack that provides a fully customisable scroll/progress bar that increases in width (from 0% to 100% of the screen width) as the user moves from the top of the web page to the bottom. It can be pinned to the top or bottom of the page.
In addition, there is the option to add content to the stack. Anything added to Scroller's container will appear above the scroll line. It will work with most navigation bars but it could also be used for text (e.g. page title) or a logo etc.

Once you've added Scroller to your Stack's page, there are just five settings – Place at top [of page]? is activated by default. There are options for two colours for the Progress bar – the bar itself and the background colour. After setting the colours, you can adjust the Height of the bar and the z-index (default 1), finally you can activate Add Content if you wish to add something immediately above Scroller.

Scroller – Shaking the Habitual
Quizzer is a completely different kettle of fish. It fills a need that Stuart was never find a suitable solution to...
… creating an interactive quiz within RW.
After trying to tweak existing form stacks and various online quiz generators but not being able to add the functionality/formatting/ownership of the content that he wanted, Stuart decided to develop his own solution.

Quizzer is a stack that you link to a JSON file (examples are included with download). It is the JSON file that contains the quiz content (questions, answers and feedback). The Quizzer stack then lets you determine the functionality for the actual quiz. This could be randomising questions and answers, showing feedback per question, displaying a score, displaying a ranking etc. There are also numerous configurable options to allow the user to control the formatting of the quiz (header sizes, colour of the buttons, colours of the correct/incorrect feedback etc).

Additionally, using a little html code within the JSON file brings a whole range of options for the user as they can use this to format their text (bold, italics) and add images, videos and links etc.

Some might find the JSON configuration a little tricky, but if you begin by editing an existing quizz, the whole process is much easier than it looks. An extensive pdf guide is also included with the download.

Stuart already began work on an update that will include more formatting options (e.g. removing indent of answers/feedback) and also for functionality (e.g. getting the quiz to show X number of random questions from the full question bank).

Quizzer - Shaking the Habitual
NOTE: Quizzer may not function in preview when the JSON file is online. To preview, you can add the file to the Resources folder.

Like some other developers, Stuart began developing stacks because he couldn't find a stack that did what he wanted. Scroller is a useful addition that many will like, whilst Quizzer is a stack that can add some fun to any site. Keep up the good work Stuart!
