WeaverThings 5 is born …

WeaverTings 5 from WeaverThings, Review By Rob Hall, CEO at rjh Web Design Rating: 5 out of 5. A bundle of eight shiny new stacks for WeaverThings to brighten up your web page.!

Marten Claridge has appeared, bleary-eyed, from his tiny back-room in Edinburgh. 

He secreted himself away for a number of weeks, to create a bundle of eight shiny new WeaverThings to make your next RapidWeaver site sparkle. WeaverThings 5 is born.

In alphabetical order –

AdThing: You need an advertisement and you need it fast. AdThing is a talented stack that will layer any stack — or multiple stacks — over an image. The image can be graduated from left to right or vice versa and can fade to white or any colour you choose. Layer a text and a button over your image for instance; a contact form and a translucent png, the possibilities are endless. Repeat the whole process with a circular button overlay. Rinse well and your perfect ad is finished.
AdThing is fully responsive and has an option to hide the inset below a definable breakpoint.



AlertThing: Do people tend to not listen to what you have to say? No-one is going to miss this message!
A rotating barber's pole* takes up the whole height of the stack and just turns and turns and …
The barber's pole can be set to any colour you choose and set to narrow or wide. And when your eyes begin to water, just click the bulletin away. Got the message this time?
*The barber's pole here is only a cheap imitation.


id you ever want dropped capitals on your website? Your wish just became reality with DropCapThing. DropCapThing is really simple to use — drag a text box into the DropCapThing stack, set the size and colour of the dropped capital, choose ‘bold’ if you wish — always looks good — and the first letter grows to span four lines of text — with the standard settings — more, or less if you prefer.

HotelModeThing: If you are building a website to present a portfolio of any kind, HotelModeThing will come in handy. Present an image with a caption in the top left corner and a linked text in the bottom right corner. You don’t need to be advertising hotels, it could be a portfolio of websites, works of art, used cars — whatever you have in your dossier.  Hover to Preview

LetterBoxThing: Did you ever visit a british house? There’s a hole in the door with a flap on it that is ideal for secretly observing your neighbours. It’s called a letterbox.
LetterBoxThing is a stack container that will accept any other stack. When your user hovers over the stack, a flap folds down and displays the text of your choice. The flap can be configured to stick to the left margin of your stack and will expand to accept your text; or it can cover the whole width of your stack with your text on the left or centred. 
The colour of both the letterbox and the flap can be set to suit your mood, as can the text. 
There are various formatting options for the text and the whole letterbox can be used as a link. The flap can also be fixed to be on permanent display. Preview 'up'Preview 'down'

LinkEffectThing: Web-links are boring, right? Traditionally royal blue and underlined. Well that just changed! LinkEffectThing gives you 20 (in words: twenty) different effects to make your links more compelling …
Override your site’s settings and display your links in any colour you please. Underlined, double underlined, underlaid … and have them expand, become bracketed, overlaid upon mouse hover. With twenty different effects, the right combination for your site is bound to be present!

PolyCapThing: Do you remember DiagonalThing? At first glance, PolyCapThing is similar. An image container with a polygonal text container below it. The angle of the diagonal division can be set to suit your taste, as can the colour of the container and the text therein. The aha-effect: when you hover over the container, a box slides across both text and image and a caption flows into it. An elegant way to present additional information for your products. Preview

PopThing: A button that pops up over a stack’s content when the mouse hovers over it! PopThing displays a round popup with a short text — ideal for prices, captions etc. Set the button colour, text format; a shadow if you wish and a link. Your page is ready to pop! Preview
