Will Woodgate's new Comments stack is 100% GDPR compliant, it doesn't collect any personal data and a user can't post a comment until she/he has confirmed their awareness that the comment will be displayed publicly.
Comments doesn't require any server side setup, simply a single line of PHP in your page's Prefix. On-page setup is simple, but that doesn't mean to say that you can't spend time pondering the correct translation to localise field names and error messages, adding custom icons to your rating system, or adding a ist of objectionable words so that you don't have to ban Steve C from your site. And I haven't even mentioned the colour setup yet…
Spammers? No. A maths question is generated for each new comment. The question may be set to simple by choosing a range e.g. between 1 and ten, or complicated by setting a range between 100 and ∞.
Disadvantages? Yes, of course there are disadvantages to not collecting personal data, or using a system such as Disqus…
… your comments are saved to a flat text file in your page's subdirectory. If you wish to reply to the comment, you either need to compose a new post, or open the .txt file with a text editor and add your reply there.
And – due to the fact that you're not asking users to supply a mail address, they can't be notified when you write a reply.

Serious panorama photographers make 360º panoramas, or even 360x360º shots. A single panorama with medium resolution can consist of 64 or more single images that require specialised equipment to shoot and are stitched together with professional software.
However, an iPhone is all you really need to take panorama shots of your client's offices or studio.
Last week, Yuzool released Panorama 360, a stack that can display 360x360º shots. Michael is obviously a fan of panorama photography too and Panorama 360 answers my requirements fully. Not only that, but the original stack has been updated too and can now display a complete 360x180º images. Perfect.
Both stacks are very simple to use; just drop your image into RW's resources, link it to the stack and publish. That's just about all there is to it.
Panorama2 is now a free addition when you purchase Panorama 360 and all three of the stacks that were published last week are available at a 30% discount with the code HOTSUMMER. The offer expires on 31st July!
Here are two examples that I've put together. The 360x360 view has not yet been retouched: I quickly spliced the images today, as all of my other '3d' images were prepared for QTVR.
NOTE: I have yet to test this stack in the wild.

ABSplit, from Yuzool themes, is a new stack that randomly serves up two alternate versions of a page, or parts of a page. If you wish to test two different CTAs, just drop them into the ABSplit stack sections and publish. If you wish to test two completely different page design, construct one page inside the A section and the alternate page inside the B section.
When your page is published and viewed online, an alternate version will be randomly displayed each time your landing page is loaded.
ABSplit has just a single setting in the stacks panel – Hide Tests – Show Both (default), Hide B Content, Hide A content. Hide Tests can hide either of your content areas in edit mode.
Now go forth and make your A/B testing work for you.
Fix allows you to add menus to your page sections. Fix menus are sticky, animated menus. This means that if you configure your menu to be 600px wide, when it reaches the top of the page, Fix will scroll over the menu that may already be there and expand to full page width.
Z Index – default 100
Breakpoint – Tablet, Mobile
Columns – Tablet, Mobile
Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
Text Size – Desktop, Tablet, Mobile
Text Font – Standard !LD options
Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
As always, every element is configurable
And, as always, the item child stack settings allow you to override the default settings for each item.
Fix is another of those navigation stacks that will prove to be very helpful.
