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.

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.

Headliner for Rapidweaver

A Headline is a text that indicates the nature of the content that follows it. Headlines and accompanying images are attention grabbers that often determine whether a content is read or not.

Headliner, Weavium's latest stack, is a news slider. It displays a headline and an image, then slides to present the next headline. When the headline is clicked, the news content opens to display in full-page view with controls to navigate to the next article.

By default Headliner is set to a max width of 600px, meaning that it will scale to fit any container up to this width. But if you need an eye-catching news slider, it also looks good at full-page width and then transforms to look just as good 9or even better) on mobile.
The Item Child will accept any sort of stack that you care to throw at it. The items are configured from the main settings panel, but each can be completely customised via the child settings.

Item Stack – As already mentioned, each child stack can be customised to override the main stack's settings.

Headliner is another versatile stack from Weavium that I can envisage being used for products and portfolios, FAQs and, of course, news articles. It is one of those stacks that is sure to grab your visitor's attention and ensure that your articles are read.

EDIT: Headliner has been updated to include adjustment of the spacing between the image and the headline, plus an option to set a background image.

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.

CutOut – Floating Images in RapidWeaver

Floating images. There's a stack for that – right? Right the tenth, or eleventh stack from the top of the library! Float an image to the right, or left of your text content. I never used it because I come from the world of DTP and found that floating images could look quite terrible compared to a professional layout app. However CSS is slowly catching up and Will Woodgate has released a new stack that takes advantage of the latest CSS additions: CutOut – a free stack from Stacks4Stacks.

CutOut is a stack that allows your text to gracefully flow around your image instead of the standard rectangular float that we have become used to. Check out the screenshot below:

CutOut – Stacks4Stacks
The left half of the image displays a regular floating image. The right half of the image displays a floating image when using CutOut. Notice a difference?

cutout – S4SCutOut makes use of the new 'shape-outside' CSS definition which is supported by all newer browsers (If you wish to know exactly which browsers take a look here). Shape Outside allows a text to flow around a pre-defined form. The form can be circular or polygonal. Polygonal shapes are highly experimental, but 0% 0%, 100% 0%, 50% 100% for instance, will create a triangular shape. CutOut degrades to a regular floating image on older browsers.

You can drop any Square (i.e. with equal length sides) image into CutOut and your image will automatically be displayed as a circular image which your text will flow around. If you require a more complicated shape, you'll need to search the web for shapes, or experiment.

How it works. Drag Cutout into a stacks page and you'll be presented with a dummy text. Replace the text with your text and drag your image into the image well in the stack settings panel. It's that simple. Of course, CutOut wouldn't be an S4S stack, if it didn't support warehoused images, but you'll also notice that it also has a setting for WebYep CMS images [Teaser]. WebYep2 is nearing release and CutOut already supports the new CMS system (as will a number of other S4S stacks).

Stack settings
Image Source – Drag & Drop, Warehoused, WebYep CMS
Standard Image
Retina Image
CutOut Shape – Circle (default), Elipse, Inset, Polygon
Image Float – Left, Right
Apply Border Radius – Default 50%
Breakpoint
Spacing – Space between image and content below breakpoint
Image Width – px
Image Margin – Top, Bottom, Left, Right
Image Width – Below breakpoint
Image Link
Content Type – HTML, Markdown, Text (default), WebYep Short and Long
Content Padding – Top, Right, Bottom, Left

With some experimenting, CutOut will allow you to create some very interesting text flows around your images. Oh, and did I mention that CutOut is a free stack?

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

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.
