Scrollers and Quizzes for RapidWeaver

A new developer has quietly slipped into the RapidWeaver fold with the introduction of two interesting stacks. Stuart Marshall. You may have noticed his name on the forums. He's chosen to name his site 'Shaking the Habitual'. Stuart's first stack – Scroller – is as simple as it is effective.

Scroller is a free stack that provides a fully customisable scroll/progress bar that increases in width (from 0% to 100% of the screen width) as the user moves from the top of the web page to the bottom. It can be pinned to the top or bottom of the page.
In addition, there is the option to add content to the stack. Anything added to Scroller's container will appear above the scroll line. It will work with most navigation bars but it could also be used for text (e.g. page title) or a logo etc.

Once you've added Scroller to your Stack's page, there are just five settings – Place at top [of page]? is activated by default. There are options for two colours for the Progress bar – the bar itself and the background colour. After setting the colours, you can adjust the Height of the bar and the z-index (default 1), finally you can activate Add Content if you wish to add something immediately above Scroller.

Scroller – Shaking the Habitual
Quizzer is a completely different kettle of fish. It fills a need that Stuart was never find a suitable solution to...
… creating an interactive quiz within RW.
After trying to tweak existing form stacks and various online quiz generators but not being able to add the functionality/formatting/ownership of the content that he wanted, Stuart decided to develop his own solution.

Quizzer is a stack that you link to a JSON file (examples are included with download). It is the JSON file that contains the quiz content (questions, answers and feedback). The Quizzer stack then lets you determine the functionality for the actual quiz. This could be randomising questions and answers, showing feedback per question, displaying a score, displaying a ranking etc. There are also numerous configurable options to allow the user to control the formatting of the quiz (header sizes, colour of the buttons, colours of the correct/incorrect feedback etc).

Additionally, using a little html code within the JSON file brings a whole range of options for the user as they can use this to format their text (bold, italics) and add images, videos and links etc.

Some might find the JSON configuration a little tricky, but if you begin by editing an existing quizz, the whole process is much easier than it looks. An extensive pdf guide is also included with the download.

Stuart already began work on an update that will include more formatting options (e.g. removing indent of answers/feedback) and also for functionality (e.g. getting the quiz to show X number of random questions from the full question bank).

Quizzer - Shaking the Habitual
NOTE: Quizzer may not function in preview when the JSON file is online. To preview, you can add the file to the Resources folder.

Like some other developers, Stuart began developing stacks because he couldn't find a stack that did what he wanted. Scroller is a useful addition that many will like, whilst Quizzer is a stack that can add some fun to any site. Keep up the good work Stuart!
