WeaverThings 4 ...

It was originally my intention to review 1LD's new stack Sticky Navs here. However, rumour has it that Marten Claridge has been locked away in a back-room somewhere in Edinburgh and is quietly churning out stack after stack for WeaverThings 4. Before you purchase Sticky Navs, I recommend that you read the following important news.

WeaverThings 4 is due to be sprung upon us within the next fortnight, some whisper that it might even be next week!
In my humble opinion, the mainstay of WeaverThings 4 will be SexyThing a sticky slider which, at first glance, is similar to Sticky Navs. SexyThing is, however, substantially more versatile. I've tested SexyThing over the last few weeks and have found that it can contain almost any stack you care to place within it, as long as that stack doesn't need to be visible upon page-load. SexyThing can be a menu, a contact form, a video-lightbox ...
... if you can imagine it, SexyThing can probably do it.

DottyThing - more than meets the eye - a horizontal ellipsis [...] to divide your content. Both the size and the spacing of the dots are configurable and they can optionally rotate when the page scrolls.

ProfileThing is a stack for creating personal profiles  -  a main image plus a circular inset for a profile image and a container for further stacks, e.g. for an accompanying text. Great, if you need to introduce your employees, but I can also envisage various other uses for it - menu cards, being just one simple example. 

TwitterThing is a simple animated slider that can link to your Twitter account. See the tweetie-bird flap its wings as the slider appears.

ModalThing is a lightbox with a container to enter a caption and a container to position stacks. A button is automatically placed on the page to open the lightbox and, when opened, the lightbox displays a button to close it. 

CornerLinkThing is a stack which devours any stack, you care to place inside it. The clou - the top right-hand corner contains a plus symbol that can be linked to anything you please. 

Last, but not least, TitleThing is great way of adding titles to your content ...
... a ribbon frames whatever is placed in the stack below it. The ribbon itself can contain a title-text and an option is included to insert content above the ribbon. Many formatting options are available, including gradients, round corners, even warehoused images. Here are a couple of great example from Marten:

Needless to say, Marten has included multiple formatting options with each stack, including Entypo Icons for menu bars and user-definable colours and gradients. WeaverThings 4 is the ideal package if you wish to present concise information and/or create sticky navigation tabs, etc. Each stack can, of course be purchased separately. Watch this space for news of availability.

I threw together a quick test page to demonstrate some of the options that are being thrust upon us, you can see it here.
