Sense of The Absurd Essential.

pointlessthing

As Pointless As PointlessThing

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 1095

framething

It's all about context

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 1132

rainbowthing

coming colours in the air

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 1177

breadcrumbthing

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 1214

changelogthing

The Times They Are A Changelogging.

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. Hopefully this will get me the knighthood I both covet and deserve.

Stacks Image 1251

trianglething

This is a three pointer.

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 1296

squeezything

More Pointless Than PointlessThing.

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 1333

valvething

It goes up and down.

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 1370

trafficlightthing

Helter Skelter.

Stop, go, stop, go — who knows what the hell to do in this topsy-turvy hill of beans. That's what TrafficLightThing is for, to slow us down, give us time to smell the flowers for a nanosecond before the helter-skelter whisks us on our weary way again.

Stacks Image 1415

loadbarthing

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 1452

switchthing

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 1489

notething

Never put the bins out in your fishnet stockings again.

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 1536

dottything

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 1559

selectthing

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

Stacks Image 1584

bannerthing

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

Stacks Image 1643

barberpolething

something for the weekend, sir?

Shave and a haircut? 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 1680

glowthing

Cockle-warmer.

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 1717

alertthing

To be or not to be a lert...

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 1762

halfcutthing

Cup half fool?

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 1799

hotelmodething

Transmogrificationary.

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 1836

letterboxthing

Because it's shaped like a letterbox?

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 1881

dropcapthing

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 1918

popthing

Pop the weasel?

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 1955

stickything

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 2000

polycapthing

polygonal mutant

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 2037

slantthing

don't you eat that yellow snow

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 2074

twitterthing

chat shit

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 2121

timelinething

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

Stacks Image 2144

hoverthing

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

Stacks Image 2169

cornerlinkthing

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 2193

hovertextthing

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

Stacks Image 2228

flippingthing

got a bird needs flipping?

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 2265

swingingthing

All you need is hedonistic optimism

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 2302

pointything

This stack actually has a point.

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 2347

foldedthing

Welcome to the fold

'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 2384

stripeything

Leopards may not change their stripes but they always change their socks.

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 2421

sidecapthing

Better than a kneecapping. Marginally.

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 2466

tilething

How time flies.

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 2503

jaggedthing

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 2540

flatshadowthing

Only uses two dimensions.

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.

Stacks Image 2583

titlething

It's a force of nature.

You can't escape it. It's known as the Third Law of Thermodynamics and it states that the entropy of any stack in thermodynamic equilibrium requires a title as the stack approaches completion. Don't try to fight it. Resistance is futile.

Stacks Image 2620

glassthing

When you need a glass or two.

Need to overlay your image with contextual text? GlassThing adds a stylish dark or light glass-like layer with configurable opacity to really make your text stand out without detracting from your image.

Stacks Image 2657

windowthing

Terminal Blinking

You're probably not aware that you need WindowThing but current research shows that without it your website is not as cool as it could be. WindowThing gives you a highly customisable graphical window with red, orange and green icons, a gradient background, and blinking terminal-style cursor. Requires Stacks 3.

Stacks Image 2770

adthing

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 2727

sideribbonthing

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

Stacks Image 2750

giggidything

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