Sense of The Absurd Essential.
Getting Lost Is No Fairy Tale. Although strictly speaking BreadcrumbThing is not actually a breadcrumb trail, it can be used as such — as well as making a great way to add a series of links to content containers.
I get literally thousands of requests a day asking me to build a stack that looks like my stacks Changelog design. Or maybe it was just one. Whatever. Your Eminence's wish is my command.
This is a tricky one. How to describe TriangleThing in a way even Euclid and Pythagoras would understand. A thing with three pointy corners? A polygon with three vertices and line segment edges? Answers on a postcard...
It's taken years of exhaustive research but I've finally found something as pointless as PointlessThing. Nevertheless I think the sacrifice has been worth it. I'll let you decide...
If I am reknowned for one thing in the RapidWeaver community it is my absolute abhorrence of the gratuitous use of long words and the kind of superfluous gizmos that distract a user's attention away from valuable content.
Stop, go, stop, go — who knows what the hell to do in this helter-skelter topsy-turvy hill of beans. That's what TrafficLightThing is for, to slow us down, give us time to smell the flowers for a millisecond before the whirlwind whisks us on our way again.
Take a load off. Never be bored again. Watch this animated load bar slide from one edge of your stack to the other. It's amazing. In fact there's not enough hyperbole in the world to describe how revolutionary this stack is.
War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing. SwitchThing, on the other hand, is good for many things. One of them is to open and close SlideThing and DropThing. Another is… Well, take it from me, everyone needs to turn on.
Inspired by our favourite bedtime game: Take a Memo, Mrs RapidWeaver Central. Or is that too much information? Or not enough information? Let me know. Send me a notething.
If you liked LoadBarThing, you're going to love PointlessThing. It has absolutely no function at all. It doesn't even look good. In fact it's a total waste of space and time. Don't even look at it.
Every picture that tells a story needs a frame to set its context. That's why the Mona Lisa doesn't work in its current setting. It needs a FrameThing to truly become a masterpiece.
All the colours of the rainbow. And then some. This stack takes your text and turns it into hippy-text — coming colours in the air, like a rainbow.
Shave and a haircut, sir, something for the weekend? BarberPoleThing will transport you to the good old days when barbers were allowed to perform surgery on people with too much hair. Not that I'm bitter, of course…
Need to give something a less than subtle glow? Really? Well, okay — just drop it in GlowThing, switch out the lights and warm the heart of your cockles.
This is another of my oxymoronic stacks. It's an alert box, but without the alert. Place it on your page and it sits there looking cool and alert with its animated border and fancy background options, just waiting to be dismissed.
I really can't decide if HalfCutThing is a case of over-styling or not… but that hasn't stopped me using it all over the place. The 'inspiration' comes partly from the A List Apart website title which Mrs RapidWeaver Central thinks is crap.
Perfect for images you want to link to other pages, this was originally a client request for stylish holiday destination links but has now transmogrified into a fully-fledged stack in its own highly resourceful right.
I don't know why I called this a LetterboxThing. Maybe it's the shape. Or the flap-effect the title shows on hover. Whatever. It's another of my multi-optioned and highly configurable content containers, with the usual emphasis on style.
Stress Free Drop Caps. Some developers are just disdainful about your health. Not us. We know too many options can raise your blood pressure so we help save your life by reducing your options to the barest of minimums. In this case, eight.
Want to pop the question? Present a clickable pricetag or call-to-action on hover? PopThing gives you a round, customisable and linkable 'button' top-right when you hover over the contents of the container.
Everyone likes to get sticky. Some people even need therapy to overcome their urges. Fortunately that's all behind me now and I can concentrate on getting stuck into sticky things... like stacks that stick.
From the primordial gloop that spawned DiagonalThing and SideCapThing, comes the mutant PolyCapThing. Part diagonal image container, part polygonal text container, with a cool caption overlay with text slide effect on hover.
The posh name for SlantedThing would be ParallelogramThing but that's a hell of a freaking mouthful for something as simple as a text banner background that can also be used as a button.
If you have an insatiable ego as big as mine then you need to keep the world apprised of your every heartbeat. Which is why you need TwitterThing.
A circular stack that flips on hover to reveal more content, be it image or text. Because every Thing must have its Thang just as every Yin must have its Yang. It's the law.
No need to be a Child of The Sixties to appreciate the benefits of Free Love. All you need is SwingingThing and we guarantee your content will be imbued with a hedonistic optimism unrivalled by any other stack.
You might be asking yourself "What is the point of this thing?" To find out, drop an image in the PointyThing stack and you'll see the point. It's a speech bubble without the bubble. Or The speech.
We don't just offer you a single caption for your image, we give you twice the caption bang for your caption buck! Simply click on the image to reveal a whole new description area you can populate with text, buttons and links.
Perfect for displaying and highlighting your standout products and services, you can also use the highly versatile FlagThing to build your own customised sales banners and dedicated calls to action.
'Above the fold' is so last week we're giving you the middle of next week with FoldedThing. Just put your content inside the FoldedThing and watch it go viral. Pinch of salt required.
Tired of dressing your websites in monotonous suits of corporate blues and greys? Think of StripeyThing as the designer socks of web design, the spice that brings a business site to life.
No danger of overdosing on functions or lethal slide effects with SideCaptionThing, you only get one — one function, one option and one cool effect. If you can't improve on perfection, why gild the lily?
This is how Windows does Metro-style tiles — they may not be particularly subtle but they do make a great impact on modern, flat and responsive designs, and make really good product tiles, link boxes, and footers so trendy they draw blood.
Cutting edge design. If you're looking for a way to differentiate one section of content from another in a subtle yet stylish manner then JaggedThing's what you need.
Give your stacks a cool flat shadow that is perfect for flat and modern sites - especially for those of you who like to crawl along the razor's edge of trending design.
