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!
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.
