Truncated, or 'read more' stacks are often used when a text is too long to display within a restricted space. Marathia's Truncator takes a different approach to most 'read more' stacks. Instead of expanding, when clicked, or hovered, Truncator displays the hidden text within a tooltip.
Truncator is ideal for displaying a two, three, or four line teaser text which can be displayed on hover.
There isn't a lot to set up for Truncator.
Number Of Lines – The default is set to 3.
Text Size – The default is 100%
You can set a Custom Text Colour, Bold & Italic, Alignment, Letter and Line Spacing and the Font Family.
Capitalise – Allows the settings Normal, Upper Case, Lower Case, Initial Case and Small Caps.
NOTE 1 – Truncator may not contain any HTML formatting! 2– JS must be activated for Truncator to work.
If you'd like your truncated text to open a new page when it is clicked, or a lightbox, BigLink will come to your aid.
BigLink is, well, a link stack. Any content that's dropped inside it may be linked to…
… a new section of the page, a lightbox, a URL, anything anything that is linkable.
E.G. Drop a teaser text from your latest Blog Post into a Truncator stack, drag Truncator into your BigLink Stack and add a link to your blog page.
On hover, your visitor can read more of the post and, when he/she clicks, will be whisked away to your blog page!
A Call To Action? Pack it into BigLink and have a lightbox open!
There are a few Link stacks available for RapidWeaver, but BigLink link has options that I haven't seen in any of them.
The first setting, obviously, is Set Link
Override Default Transition – when activated, Transition Speed is displayed. Set the speed in milliseconds.
Transitions? Yes, BigLink can change colours when hovered.
Activate Background Type Colour and/or Image and you can add a background to BigLink
When you choose Colour, you'll find colour settings for the four states Static, Hover, Active and visited.
The same settings apply to the stack's border. Obviously, if you add a background image, it will override the fill options.
BigLink Text And Icon Settings
BigLink will also allow you to set the text and Fontawesome colours for the four link states above.
BigLink also has multiple settings to allow you to override the font settings of the stack contained within it.
NOTE If the inner stack already has font settings, these settings may take precedence. That's just the way CSS works – the final stack to be read overrides all previous settings.
BigLink Image Settings
All images contained within a BigLink stack may have hover effect applied to them (does not apply to background images) during Static, Hover and Active states.
Opacity, Blur, Greyscale and Sepia. Browsers do not allow image effects for visited links.
