EU law stipulates that a warning must be presented, when cookies are present on a site. These notices are now generally ignored and are rarely clicked away, or accepted unless they hide page content. So what about a cookie message that loads with the page and disappears after n seconds?
What about a Call To Action that is displayed after n seconds and has to be clicked away, or an info box that is opened when an image. or a button is clicked, or when the page scrolls – and has options to open a new link? What about a thumbnail image that opens up a full page image when clicked?
Notice consists of two stacks. Notice and Notice Trigger. Notice trigger allows you to drop in a stack that will trigger notice. Its only setting is Connected ID. set the ID of your Notice stack (you might want more than one, right?).
Show Type. The first thing that Notice wants to know, is how it should be triggered. The options are Open On Start, Timer, On Scroll and On Notice Trigger only.
I searched in vain for a setting to determine the scroll distance before Notice opens on scroll. I'm sure this option would be much appreciated. As it stands, Notice opens up immediately, as soon as the page is scrolled any distance.
Show Animation. You have a choice of 42 animations to blend in your Notice Stack.
Hide Type has two options: Hide Manually, or Timer. Hide Animations has the same options as Show Animation.
Content Type is set to Text/Icon by default. It can be set to Stacks. Fill Mode may be set to Fill, Pixel Width, or Percentage Width.
The Z-Index is set to 999999 by default.
Position Vert: may be set to Top, Centre, or Bottom, while Top Margin determines the offset in px. Position Horiz:has the optionsLeft, Right and Centre. Margin, Padding and Radius can all be set individually and the Content width may be defined in px.
Notice's Background, like all recent 1LD stacks, can be set to None, Colour, Gradient, or Image. The settings for Notification Text and Notification Icon also mirror the settings of 1LD's recent stacks.
A Close Button is optional in Notice. When activated it is always in the top right hand corner. Show Action Buttons is also optional. When activated, two buttons are positioned at the foot of your Notice. The left button is a Close button, while the right button may be assigned a link. The Height of the button may be set in px and the colour of the Button Text and Button BG are definable. Each of the buttons has individual hover settings for Button Text and Button BG.
Trigger ID lets you set an individual ID for each Notice stack you have positioned on your page. You will then find a setting Maximum height for the Notice window in Percent. Any content that can not be displayed at this height can then be scrolled.
The two final settings are Activate Cookies and Absolute Position.
Notice is a versatile stack that shouldn't be missing from any self respecting Weaver's arsenal.
