BFS2 – Slidetastic From Weavium

Also just in time for the BlackFriday promotions, Weavium has released three new stacks. Two of the stacks are free and I shall be reviewing them later. Slidetastic is a new take on an image carousel.

So once more the question – do we we need yet another image slider for RapidWeaver. Well, just last week, I answered my own question by requesting that a developer add new functions to an already existing stack. Slidetastic almost does what I requested.
Slidetastic is a simple image carousel and (as yet?) doesn't have a lightbox function. Nevertheless, Slidetastic is an interesting stack that many Weavers will appreciate. Easy to use and very flexible, Slidetastic arrives with three separate stacks: The base stack, a Slide child stack and a Slidetastic Image stack.

So how exactly is Slidetastic different to other image sliders?
First off: Slidetastic can display a single image or a row of images. When using an odd number of images within a row of images, the centred image may be focussed whilst the images left and right of it display with reduced opacity.
Second: The Slidetastic Image Stack has containers for a caption Header and a full sized caption text. Both may individually be displayed constantly, or can appear when the image is hovered.
Third: I guarantee that you've seldom seen a slider stack where the navigation is so highly configurable as Slidetastic with over a dozen options!
Fourth: Slidetastic can display just about any stack you please in addition to the standard Slidetastic Image stack. Even in combination with the Image stack!Slidetastic – Weavium
Obviously, Slidetastic has autoplay, loop and pause on hover settings. The loop is actually a "scroll-back-to-beginning" setting, but that's splitting hairs.
It is interesting to note that the number of slides displayed simultaneously may be set individually for Desktop, Tablet and Mobile, as can the number of slides to scroll and the distance between the slides in each case.

The navigation buttons? Yes – as already mentioned: flexible. Above, Below, Left, Right, Full height, Within, Without, Stacked…
… the options go on and on. With the Navigation dots, you'll need to be a little flexible and think inside the box. They are placed within the slide by default and if you'd prefer them to be outside, you'll need to add padding.

Hurry, hurry, hurry, the Black Friday promotion ends soon…
