Assist adds a simple button to your Stacks' page. The button shape, size and colour is entirely up to you. When the button is clicked, An accordion with your list of options opens, displacing the page content below.
When you click one of the options, an info panel replaces the list. This all happens with subtle animations and is a great way of hiding any form of user guidance until it is needed. A real space saver!

Assist is an innovative space saver that allows you to suppress your questions and answers until the are really needed.
Melodeon; a row of columns. When one of the columns is hovered, it expands whilst the adjoining columns are compressed. When clicked, the column expands to full width, the vertical title flips to horizontal and both a 'more' button and an icon are displayed. The more button opens up a content slider below the expanded column and displays further information.
The number of columns that Melodeon displays depends on the number of child stacks that have been added. Both the maximum width and the height can be determined so that Melodeon could also appear as a row of buttons. The columns are neatly stacked when displayed on mobile, but setting the breakpoint to a width higher the the maximum expected viewport also allows Melodeon to be stacked when viewed with a desktop browser.

Step displays two panels, the left panel shows a menu; the main panel contains the numbered steps/instructions for your visitor to arrive at a solution. The Menu panel displays the steps necessary and gives an idea of how many steps remain to be completed. When your visitor has digested the first step, she/he can either click the 'Next' button, or click the next step in the menu.
A clipboard Symbol slides the menu panel out of sight when it's not needed. And Step is, of course, fully responsive – when viewed on a mobile device, the menu is hidden by default and simply activated by clicking the clipboard.
Once Step has been added to a Stacks page, you can get straight to work, the procedure is simple. Add a Title to your first step – it is automatically added to the menu panel. In the stack container, add the stacks that you need for your description and add your content. Just about any stack is acceptable, including contact forms.
Once you have the first Step completed, you can add further Step child stacks and then set about formatting the display.

The possibilities of Step are only restricted by your imagination. I can think of a couple of web designers that will immediately find a use for the stack.
Parallaxer from Shaking The Habitual is the second take on parallax effects in as many weeks and it adds a new dimension to the effect we've become used to. Not only can the background images scroll up the page, they can also scroll to the left or the right. And, because the background image is not defined as a CSS BG, it works on mobiles*. The fact that the image is a 'normal' image, also means that you can add Alt tags to improve your SEO results.
In its default state, Parallaxer adds an image to your page that scrolls slower than the rest of the page. You can set the scroll speed between 10 and 50. A stack container can be activated that allows you to add stacks to be inserted over the background image, either centered, or in one of the four corners.
Image – Warehoused, Local
Effect Scale – 10–50
Direction – Up, Left, Right
Add Content – Deactivated by default
Placement – Four corners or Centred

When first inserted into a Stacks page, Panels displays a single panel 1000px wide. The panel contains an icon, a title and a stack container into which you can insert the expanded content. The panel may be configured to have a flat colour, gradient (via the Panels item settings) or an image. The Icon – from a choice of four icon fonts – may be replaced with an image.
By adding item child stacks, the panel is divided into two, three, four etc. panels which either have the max width you've set, or fill the container that they are in. When one of the Panels is hovered it expands, the icon gently bounces and a text e.g. 'Read More' slides up into the panel. When clicked, the panel expands to fill the full width of its container and displays the container stacks.Stack settings

Weavium's expanding stacks are amongst the best available. Panels is no exception and is a highly flexible way to display additional information within a confined space.
NOTE: Ion Icons have just been upgraded to version 4 with which Panels is not yet compatible. If you wish to use Ion Icons, I recommend you download the cheatsheet for version 2 which is 100% compatible.
