Ultra Lists for RapidWeaver

Weavium – until quite recently unheard of – just released their 16th stack. Ultra Lists – possibly the most versatile list stack available.

Contact Details, Sales Widget, Itinerary List, Product List, FAQs. The long list of uses is only restricted by your imagination.
Ultra Lists displays a list in accordion form (Weavium hates that word) that each shows an image or icon, a header text, an optional description and optional tags. It can display an optional search field to search the list and an optional tag filter.
When opened, Ultra Lists can display almost anything you wish. Long descriptions with images, Buttons, Contact Forms, etc. etc…

Stack Colours and Fonts
Font selection for Title, Description, Details and Search – 17 web font options for each, plus Google fonts
Colour options for all of the above.

Once again, the configuration options are seemingly endless and you'll need a while to identify each setting, but once you've configured your first Item child, you can duplicate it as often as needed.
The child stack settings gives you the option of adding an image or an icon (four optional icon fonts plus custom) and this is also where you add your Title, Tags and short Description.

Ultra Lists is another of those neat Weavium stacks that many are going to love.

Articles for RapidWeaver

After making a brief appearance on the 1LD site before it was quite finished, Jeremy & Co have just released Article.
An 'article' may refer to a news article discussing general interest e.g. a specific topic, club newsletters, or technology news. If you need to publish articles that don't necessarily have to appear in a blog post, The new Article stack may be just what you are looking for.
In other usage, an 'article' may refer to an item, e.g. an item that is for sale. The new Article stack is also ideal for product catalogues or portfolios.

Article, when dropped into a Stacks page, displays a black rectangle with a black title, a grey icon and grey text. And whilst black may be the new white, thankfully everything about Article can be fully customised.
Article displays an image, a summary text and, if you wish, author and publishing date. When previewed, you can click an article, it opens up full page to display its contents – which may be any stack combination you please. The author and publishing date may also be replaced with any text you see fit. A feature that I really like is the Child Stack which adds new articles to form a list separated by thin dividing lines.
Once again, 1LDs settings are so extensive that I'll only be showing you a summary of the stack's settings.

Info Dropdown for RapidWeaver

When I first read the description of the new View More stack from Weavium, I was expecting yet another extensible paragraph stack. It turns out that View More is much more than that, it's an info box that expands when clicked to divulge more information.

Packing tons of information into a webpage has always presented a problem. How do you pack reams of text and/or images into a page, yet retain an attractive design? Well, maybe Weavium can help you…
View More is a stack that presents your visitors with a compact teaser and expands when clicked. View More is as highly customisable as we have come to expect in the short time that Weavium stacks have been available and can be configured either to subtly match any other elements on your page. or to jump out at your visitor, begging to be clicked.

In its base form, View More displays a rectangular box (the colour settings are entirely up to you) which, when opened can contain the Encyclopaedia Britannica, if you so wish.

View More – Weavium

At the foot of the opened View More stack, your visitor will discover two buttons – Close and Proceed. Obviously, the button text may be reconfigured to suit your purpose but, interestingly, the Proceed button can be set to either a link, or a JavaScript.

View More – Weavium
The initial View More state is a rectangular box containing an icon, or an image, a title, a teaser text and a button to, well, View More. When the View More button is clicked, the original content shifts around to take up less space on your page and a drawer opes to display further content. The Proceed button (which may be hidden) could then open a new page or trigger a JavaScript to…
… Well, that's entirely up to you!

Stack settings
General
Max Width – px
[Corner] Radius – px
Breakpoints – Tablet, Mobile

Header – Extensive settings for the header formatting, including a choice of sixteen web fonts + Custom Google Font and four different icon sets – Font Awesome, Iconic, Linear Icons, Material Icons + Custom

[Header] Content
Padding
Max Width
Content Font – as above

Footer
Padding
Button Text – px
Button Padding
Button Radius
Button Spacing – Spacing between buttons
More Button Text – View More, Close
Action Button Text – Proceed

Section Colours – Extensive colour settings for every View More setting, including diagonal gradients and background images.

Action Button – Hide/Display action button
Action Type – Link, JavaScript
Displays either Link or text box for script.

View More is a nifty little stack that allows you to display reams of information within a confined space, but with the added convenience of being able to easily add a JavaScript for further functionality. View More is currently 25% off with the code view_more_initial_release.

Let's just hope that 'Linear Icons' lives longer than other icon sets have in the past, so that we don't have to reconfigure our pages next year.

Creating Events in RapidWeaver

An Open House, a Video Conference, a Sales Event/Exhibition – they all need advertising. Your announcement needs to display date(s), Location, and further details. 1LD just released a stack that will allow you to advertise your event in a practical and stylish fashion – Events.

One Little Designer is one of those stack developers that is currently on a roll, releasing practical and very current looking stacks – one after the other. And the speed with which these stacks are being published does nothing to affect their quality, the are all 1A rated.

Events is the ideal stack to announce any sort of event, be it a single day event, or one that covers multiple days. Events displays a large date, the event title and short description and can also display the location, times, or login details for instance. When clicked, Events slides open to display further details. The details can contain practically any combination of stacks that you care to add.

Events – One Little Designer
As to be expected from 1LD, every aspect of Events may be configured to match your website. All colours, fonts and sizes (within reason) are customisable.

Stack settings
Show Top Date – Day number
Show Bottom Date – Month name
Show Description – Short description
Show Info 1 – Location, times, URL etc.
Show Info 2 – As above
Maximum Width – px
Wrapping Point – Wrapping point for mobile
Break Points – Tablet, Mobile

Events General
Radius
Margin – Vertical, Horizontal
Padding – Inner padding
Content Spacing – Between title, description, info
Title – Size in px Desktop, Tablet, Mobile
Title Weight – Bold, Normal
Description – Sizes in px
Info 1 & 2 – Sizes in px

Events Dates
Top Format – Default DD
Bottom Format – Default MMMM
Min Width – px
Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
Date Top – Sizes in px
Date Bottom – Sizes in px
Font – 15 WebFonts, plus Custom. Not yet an option for theme fonts.

Events Details – Toggle Text, Padding, Text Sizes, Font

Event colours – Colour settings for all of the above

Events Item
Open Initially
Date
Info 1 Icon – Google Material, Fontawesome, or Ion Icons
Icon
Info 2 Icon – As above
Icon

As you can see, Events, as is typical for 1LD stacks, is endlessly customisable and the results are not only practical, but attractive.
If you have an event to announce, I suggest that you take a look at the 1LD product page right away.

Flex – A New Accordion For RapidWeaver

Weavium's collection of stacks is rapidly expanding. The latest Weavium stack, Flex, is a new take on an old theme – Expanding content in RapidWeaver.

There are a dozen stacks available for RapidWeaver that will expand their content. Some are themed, many can be fairly freely customised and now there is Flex, a stack that many Weavers will find interesting due to its configurability, or should I say Flexibility? Flex is quote: "expandable content, like you've never seen it before".

When you hover over a Flex drawer, its height expands to indicate that is ready to be clicked. When you click, the header shrinks again, changes colour and the drawer opens to display its content. The Flex drawers may be formatted collectively, or individually – the choice is yours. The collective formatting overrides the individual formatting.
You have a wide choice of fonts and icons for the drawer's title and there is an optional button with a neat animated slide effect to open, or close all of the drawers at once.

Flex – Weavium
Stack settings
Open All On Start – Deactivated by default
Collapse Siblings – Active by default – when a drawer is clicked the previous drawer closes.
Max Width – px
Breakpoints – Tablet, Mobile
Header Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
Content Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
Title – Desktop, Tablet, Mobile – px
Icon – D, T, M –px
Dropdown Icon – D, T, M – px
Container Text – D, T, M – px
Header Font – 16 optional web fonts, plus custom
Content Font – Dito
All Caps Headers – deactivated by default

There now follows a long list of colour (including gradients and images) settings for Flex's settings for each static, hover and active states; colour settings for the Open All button and the option to deactivate said button.

Flex Item
Open This Item on Start
Icon Font – Three optional Icon Fonts, plus Custom
Header Title [colour] – Open, Closed
Header Icon [colour] – Open, Closed
Header Overlay [colour] – visible when active
Content Text [colour]
Content Overlay
Background Colour – Static Drawer colour

Flex's appeal lies not only with the slick animations that it delivers, but also with the total configurability of each of the drawers.

EDIT – January 23 2018 Flex has since been updated – twice:

Version 1.0.0

Ability to customize expand/shrink sizes on hover & open
Ability to style items individually or with shared styles
Open/Close all toggle with customizable colors & text
Ability to nest multiple Flex stacks inside one another!
Ability to add custom icons
Ability to set sizing option on Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile devices!
Version 1.0.1
Added ability to adjust corner radius on Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile Devices
