50/50 Slider displays a title, a caption text, a button and an image – now you're thinking "Yeah, so do many other sliders!", but this is where the name 50/50 comes into play; one half of the stack displays your text content, the other half displays your image. When you click the stack's navigation button, the text content slides from left to right to reveal the next content – 50/50.
50/50 Slider will fill any container that you drop it into and by adjusting its max width and min height, it can easily fill your screen. On mobile 50/50 transforms to display your image above the text content.
As we have recently become accustomed to with 1LD stacks: the settings panel reveals a plethora of configuration options, making 50/50 Slider completely customisable. So here's a condensed version of the…
General – Max Width, Min Height, Mobile Point, Radius, Content Align
Slides – Hide Titles, Hide Text, Hide Buttons, Title Font, Text Font, Padding, Title Size, Title Spacing, Text Size, Text Spacing, Button Configuration, Mobile Height for Image
Slide Navigation Configuration
Custom Slide Colours
The main stack settings are for the global appearance of the slider, however, each slide child may be customised individually.
1LD has once again produced an innovative stack that is both modern and timeless. This is an effective slider that is simple to configure and will find great popularity.
The only thing that I could wish for is an option to swap the image/text positions…
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.
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).
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!
Headliner, Weavium's latest stack, is a news slider. It displays a headline and an image, then slides to present the next headline. When the headline is clicked, the news content opens to display in full-page view with controls to navigate to the next article.
By default Headliner is set to a max width of 600px, meaning that it will scale to fit any container up to this width. But if you need an eye-catching news slider, it also looks good at full-page width and then transforms to look just as good 9or even better) on mobile.
The Item Child will accept any sort of stack that you care to throw at it. The items are configured from the main settings panel, but each can be completely customised via the child settings.

Item Stack – As already mentioned, each child stack can be customised to override the main stack's settings.
Headliner is another versatile stack from Weavium that I can envisage being used for products and portfolios, FAQs and, of course, news articles. It is one of those stacks that is sure to grab your visitor's attention and ensure that your articles are read.
EDIT: Headliner has been updated to include adjustment of the spacing between the image and the headline, plus an option to set a background image.
Contact Details, Sales Widget, Itinerary List, Product List, FAQs. The long list of uses is only restricted by your imagination.
Ultra Lists displays a list in accordion form (Weavium hates that word) that each shows an image or icon, a header text, an optional description and optional tags. It can display an optional search field to search the list and an optional tag filter.
When opened, Ultra Lists can display almost anything you wish. Long descriptions with images, Buttons, Contact Forms, etc. etc…

Stack Colours and Fonts
Font selection for Title, Description, Details and Search – 17 web font options for each, plus Google fonts
Colour options for all of the above.
Once again, the configuration options are seemingly endless and you'll need a while to identify each setting, but once you've configured your first Item child, you can duplicate it as often as needed.
The child stack settings gives you the option of adding an image or an icon (four optional icon fonts plus custom) and this is also where you add your Title, Tags and short Description.
Ultra Lists is another of those neat Weavium stacks that many are going to love.
Circle Menu can be configured to be open or closed when your page loads. If it is closed, it shows up as a circular button (default) with a hamburger icon. When clicked the circle (or square) expands to display up to eight further buttons with icons that are linked to URLs of your choice. The buttons are added as child stacks and each child is configured individually.
The buttons have a shadow when hovered and a tooltip appears to display the URLs target. Clicking at the centre of the menu will minimise it.
As we have come to expect from 1LD in the meantime, configuration possibilities are almost endless. For starters, the eight buttons can be positioned completely within the circle (square) or positioned around its perimeter.
Open on Start - Active by default
Offset Items – Move the items to the menu perimeter (as above)
# of Items – Up to eight menu items
Menu Type – Circular (default), Square
Font Family – 13 Web fonts, plus Custom
Toggle size and options for Colour, Shadow etc.
Menu size and options for Size, Padding and Colour
Round Items – Active by default
Icon Font – Three options
Use Custom Image Icon
Circle Menu is a compact menu that may be positioned anywhere on your page. Multiple menus can be added to the page making submenus for page sections easily possible. One can only wonder how many more menu stacks 1LD will offer us!
