Be Happy, It Drives People Crazy. QuoteSlider For RapidWeaver.

QuoteSlider from Stacks4Stacks, Review By Rob Hall, CEO at rjh Web Design Rating: 5 out of 5. QuoteSlider is possible the most feature-rich, dedicated quotes slider on the market.

Let's say, you'd like to have an inspirational quote in your site's header, or to publish testimonials for your business, what better way, than a quotes slider?

To date we've used Will Woodgate's randomiser Stack, the problem being that the quote only changes when the page is reloaded. But what if you want the quote to change every 30 seconds or so?
Well, you could drop the standard Stacks Quote stack into a slider, or you could use 1LD's CleanQuotes or, since yesterday, you could use Will Woodgate's very versatile  QuoteSlider.


QuoteSlider is billed as the most feature-rich, dedicated quotes slider on the market and it most certainly has the longest HUD. The most astonishing thing about QuoteSlider is its use of HTML. When you come to enter a quote, you get a window of code. Now if you don't want to mess around with HTML, you can just replace the standard quotes and citations with your own, while leaving the tags intact. If, however, you are adept at HTML coding, you can format the quotes to match your design concept exactly.

The HUD supplies all the other settings you need – You don't get any themes, but you do get total control over the stack's presentation. Firstly you can choose to have the stack automatically placed into an Extra Content Area or, if you're Using Stacks4Stacks' FreeStyle stack, into your page header. You can, of course, place the stack anywhere else you please on the page and multiple copies can be placed on the same page.

The quotes that  QuoteSlider loads can be warehoused so that you may easily change the quotes regularly without having to republish your RapidWeaver page. They can also slide horizontally or vertically with transition times and pause times set in milliseconds, with the maximum pause-time being one minute.

It is possible to set the slider to begin with a random quote from your collection or to begin with a specific quote. The quotes are set to loop infinitely, but you may also set them to remain stationary once the last quote is displayed. 
If you like the standard settings, you are ready to go once you have inserted your own quotes to replace those of Sir Winston Churchill. If not you can set up maximum widths, breakpoints and change the colour and alignment of practically everything within the stack.

Next time I want to publish testimonials, I have a difficult choice to make!
