Since when has one link effect ever been enough? I say to hell with freaking moderation and take a load of this — twenty sophisticated effects to style your inline links with, one for every imaginable occasion.

Stacks Image 201298


Relax. Now you don't need to be a Photoshop design ninja to fashion your own stylish ads. AdThing's simple layering and gradient options will help you create really professional adverts in the blink of a dead slow eye.

Stacks Image 201326


As content separators and section dividers go, DottyThing certainly errs on the eccentric side. This one has a cool animation effect when it enters the users viewport...

Stacks Image 201346


Not many people are aware that Charles Darwin's Law of Evolution by Natural SelectThing was inspired by this stack.

Stacks Image 201367


Need a banner for your thing? Great for standout titles and headings in a banner-like thing.

Stacks Image 201388


Voted the best stack in the world by my mother, ShowThing is perfect for displaying products or team members.

Stacks Image 201416


Build your project artefacts and display your events in chronological order. Fully customisable and configurable with a cool hover and scale effect.

Stacks Image 201442


The Button Reveal On Hover Thing. Another cool and individual way to display sections of content.

Stacks Image 201553


Our creepiest stack. If there's one thing it's really good at, creeping up on your website visitors is definitely it.

Stacks Image 201580


Create your own stylish sidebars and content containers. Comes replete with a fully customisable ribbon and hover effect.

Stacks Image 201618


Create your own stylish sidebars Added Value Container

Stacks Image 201470


Have a corner? Need to link it to a thing? You need CornerLinkThing. You do. It's flat and stylish and — sin of sins — unfashionably subtle. Do you have what it takes?

Stacks Image 201493


HoverTextThing is a very simple stack for those who favour the subtle over the obvious and the obvious over the subtle.


Stacks Image 67404

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.


Stacks Image 200063

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.


Stacks Image 200339

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...


Stacks Image 200358

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...


Stacks Image 200384

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.


Stacks Image 200403

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.


Stacks Image 200429

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.


Stacks Image 200448

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.


Stacks Image 200474

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.


Stacks Image 200493

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.


Stacks Image 200564

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.


Stacks Image 200538

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.


Stacks Image 200609

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…


Stacks Image 200583

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.


Stacks Image 200654

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.


Stacks Image 200628

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.


Stacks Image 200701

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.


Stacks Image 200673

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.


Stacks Image 200746

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.


Stacks Image 200720

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.


Stacks Image 200791

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.


Stacks Image 200765

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.


Stacks Image 200836

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.


Stacks Image 200810

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.


Stacks Image 200881

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.


Stacks Image 200855

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.


Stacks Image 200926

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.


Stacks Image 200900

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.


Stacks Image 200971

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.


Stacks Image 200945

'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.


Stacks Image 201101

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.


Stacks Image 200990

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?


Stacks Image 201119

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.


Stacks Image 201186

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.


Stacks Image 201167

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.
