Category for RapidWeaver

One of Weavium's specialities, is the presentation of large amounts of information in confined spaces; expanding content commonly known as accordions – a word that Weavium tries to avoid.

Accordions are useful additions to any page that has a lot to say, but they have their limitations – there are only so many buttons that you can fit into a row of tabs. Category, the latest Weavium product, does away with those limitations.

Category neatly hides your content behind a sliding row of buttons or tabs. Slide until you find the button you want. Click the button to open an info panel. And as usual, each aspect of the stack is configurable.

Assist for RapidWeaver

User Guidance. Often a necessity, but not all users require guidance. We often see pages with FAQs, but do they really need to take up half the page? 1LD has decided that no, they don't; they don't even need to be permanently visible, just accessible. The new Assist stack hides away your questions and answers until they are needed.

Assist – One Little DesignerAssist adds a simple button to your Stacks' page. The button shape, size and colour is entirely up to you. When the button is clicked, An accordion with your list of options opens, displacing the page content below.
When you click one of the options, an info panel replaces the list. This all happens with subtle animations and is a great way of hiding any form of user guidance until it is needed. A real space saver!

Melodeon for RapidWeaver

A melodeon, or 'squeezebox' as it is sometimes called (Quetschkommode if you're German), is a musical instrument. It is played by expanding and compressing a set of bellows whilst pressing a combination of buttons.
Weavium's 20th stack, Melodeon, doesn't play music, but it does expand and compress when hovered and it displays buttons when clicked.

Melodeon; a row of columns. When one of the columns is hovered, it expands whilst the adjoining columns are compressed. When clicked, the column expands to full width, the vertical title flips to horizontal and both a 'more' button and an icon are displayed. The more button opens up a content slider below the expanded column and displays further information.

Melodeon – WeaviumMelodeon – Weavium

The number of columns that Melodeon displays depends on the number of child stacks that have been added. Both the maximum width and the height can be determined so that Melodeon could also appear as a row of buttons. The columns are neatly stacked when displayed on mobile, but setting the breakpoint to a width higher the the maximum expected viewport also allows Melodeon to be stacked when viewed with a desktop browser.

Ultra Lists for RapidWeaver

Weavium – until quite recently unheard of – just released their 16th stack. Ultra Lists – possibly the most versatile list stack available.

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.


Articles for RapidWeaver

After making a brief appearance on the 1LD site before it was quite finished, Jeremy & Co have just released Article.
An 'article' may refer to a news article discussing general interest e.g. a specific topic, club newsletters, or technology news. If you need to publish articles that don't necessarily have to appear in a blog post, The new Article stack may be just what you are looking for.
In other usage, an 'article' may refer to an item, e.g. an item that is for sale. The new Article stack is also ideal for product catalogues or portfolios.

Article, when dropped into a Stacks page, displays a black rectangle with a black title, a grey icon and grey text. And whilst black may be the new white, thankfully everything about Article can be fully customised.
Article displays an image, a summary text and, if you wish, author and publishing date. When previewed, you can click an article, it opens up full page to display its contents – which may be any stack combination you please. The author and publishing date may also be replaced with any text you see fit. A feature that I really like is the Child Stack which adds new articles to form a list separated by thin dividing lines.
Once again, 1LDs settings are so extensive that I'll only be showing you a summary of the stack's settings.
