Clandestine Connections & Cues

Have you got something to hide? Secret documents; a login page that not everyone should find; sleazy pics? Then I've got just the thing for you…

Stealth Link

Stealth Link from RWExtras is a link that doesn't always link to the page that you'd expect it to. A normal click will take you to a perfectly innocent page – your portfolio, perhaps. However, if you click and hold a Stealth Link for a couple of seconds (4 seconds being the default), it can take you somewhere completely different. A members login page for instance, or a download area – the choice is yours.

Once you open the Stealth Link settings panel, you'll only find two settings: Hold Length and Destination Link (your hidden page). Drop a text container into Stealth Link and apply a normal link to some text and your clandestine link is ready to be clicked or held.

Super Tooltips

Give your visitors detailed cues when they hover over a link, with Super Tooltips. A great way either to let them know where a link will lead them or even to explain part of a text.

I moved the Tooltip in the first screenshot it would normally be positioned exactly below the linked text.

Let's take look at how Super Tooltips works. In the settings panel, you'll first find Custom IDs that will allow you to format links for tooltips elsewhere on your page. This will allow you to add just a single Super Tooltips stack to the page and to use its settings over multiple text or paragraph stacks. To do so (using the default settings), add 'customClass a' to the Custom Class section of your text container and in the URL panel, add an id with '#customid a'. Then add your hint as described below.

Below the IDs, there is an option to display the tooltips with or without an arrow. Next, you can set the Max. Width for the tooltips. Below Max. Width you will find Tooltip Animation settings. The tooltip can Fade in, Grow (default), Swing in, Slide, or Fall in. However they appear, they certainly can't be missed.

Tooltip Side sets where the tooltips appear: Top, Bottom (default), Left, or Right. And finally, you'll find a choice of six different Tooltip Themes for the appearance of your hints.

If you want the links to link to a specific URL, you need to add the link to your text as you normally would. To add a hint, you need to add the hint text into the Value field next to the Title. If you need a hint, but don't wish to link to an URL, just leave the URL field empty.

If you have a page with 'chapters' and would like each chapter to have its own Super Tooltips formatting, you may add multiple Super Tooltips stacks to a page, each with a different setting. But don't overdo it – you'll confuse your readers.

Stealth Link and Super Tooltips are two great additions to your RapidWeaver toolbox and Stealth link is free!

Oh, and if you're wondering why the links in my screen shots stands out so boldly, that's LinkEffectThing, but that was the subject of a completely different review.
