JW's Weaver's Space has gained a new stack – Horizon a stack that scrolls content into view when required.
We've seen sliders before, but Horizon is different, it can scroll content horizontally either when your visitor slides the scrollbar (or drags on mobile devices), or automatically. Automatically means that your content can scroll constantly (and pause on hover), or – especially subtle – scroll as the page is scrolled.
If Horizon is set to scroll manually, a badge can be displayed "Scroll Me" (or a text of your choice) so that even the least experienced visitor gets a hint that there's more content available.
Horizon will accept any stack [combination] that you care to throw at it, but it is also TotalCMS-ready, i.e. it has options to add a Blog List, a Gallery, or a Post Gallery.

Horizon is a great way to display masses of information and even the most inexperienced visitor can hardly miss that there's more content to view.

Inverter is STH's 3rd stack. With its nifty parallax effect, it goes further than other horizontally scrolling stacks and will be appreciated by many Weavers. If you're interested in purchasing Inverter, there's a 20% discount available until June 8th/18 using the code sth-ninja-inverter.

Feature Slider is a slider that displays a headline, an icon or an image and a short description with a 'Learn More' button and is ideal for product presentation, or portfolios etc.
Let's say that you're advertising real estate, promoting art, or selling an assortment of products; drop Feature Slider into your Stacks' page and you have the perfect vehicle to do so.
Feature Slider may be configured to display as compact sliders in multiple columns, e.g. to present your staff from multiple departments, or as a full-page slider to present a portfolio. In its base configuration, Feature Slider displays an icon, but is readily set to display an image. The 'Learn More' button can then open a new page (or lightbox) to display more information about the product advertised.
As with all recent 1LD stacks, Feature Slider is fully customisable and the settings panel is a cubit long. Via the child stack settings each slide is individually customisable.
Autoplay – Deactivated by default
Active Slide – Slide that is displayed on page load

Max Height – px
Settings for all font, image and button sizes

Feature Slider is yet another 1LD stack that is not only timeless but versatile. I can envisage multiple uses for it. I'm sure you can too.
50/50 Slider displays a title, a caption text, a button and an image – now you're thinking "Yeah, so do many other sliders!", but this is where the name 50/50 comes into play; one half of the stack displays your text content, the other half displays your image. When you click the stack's navigation button, the text content slides from left to right to reveal the next content – 50/50.
50/50 Slider will fill any container that you drop it into and by adjusting its max width and min height, it can easily fill your screen. On mobile 50/50 transforms to display your image above the text content.
As we have recently become accustomed to with 1LD stacks: the settings panel reveals a plethora of configuration options, making 50/50 Slider completely customisable. So here's a condensed version of the…
General – Max Width, Min Height, Mobile Point, Radius, Content Align
Slides – Hide Titles, Hide Text, Hide Buttons, Title Font, Text Font, Padding, Title Size, Title Spacing, Text Size, Text Spacing, Button Configuration, Mobile Height for Image
Slide Navigation Configuration
Custom Slide Colours
The main stack settings are for the global appearance of the slider, however, each slide child may be customised individually.
1LD has once again produced an innovative stack that is both modern and timeless. This is an effective slider that is simple to configure and will find great popularity.
The only thing that I could wish for is an option to swap the image/text positions…
Testimonials is a crisp new take on quotes. A slider with a thousand options that allow you to present your quotes exactly as you want them. There's not a single design aspect that can't be altered. Take a peek at the stack settings and you'll see what I mean. You could spend the whole day tweaking and refining!
When you drag the stack into an RW Stacks page, you are presented with a single child stack that contains your first quote. The default quote is a black and dark grey design. Perhaps not appropriate for every site, so you're going to want to change the colours of the background, decide on your font format and colour (the usual 1LD collection of 13 fonts, plus custom are available), set the format and size of the quotation marks, or hide them top and/or bottom (again, there is the choice of 13+ fonts for the quotation marks).
Further, you can choose the font (13+) for the name, or hide the name entirely and you can choose between star ratings, or hearts, or hide the rating. Finally you can display an Icon above, or below the slider. In the child stack settings, you can replace the icon with an image of your choice…
… Oh and then there's the slider buttons which can also be hidden if you only have a single quote, or have set Testimonials to 'Autoplay'.
No, absolutely not. I refuse! If I list all of the possible settings, I'll still be here next week and this post would be three feet long. Suffice it to say, they are endless!
Testimonials is a great replacement for cleanQuotes and if you previously purchased cQ, you can expect a special upgrade offer to land in your inBox very soon.
