Button graphics/animations

Hello all,

I am looking for animation hover type of buttons. Not sure if it can be done in RW. However this web site here does it

Is there a way to do something similar with rapid weaver?

And if so how would you install it?

@garyp, that is a flash menu system and no, I would not recommend it (imho).

Can you insert Flash into a RW page… you betcha,with the right stack (I don’t have any I don’t think).

I would stick to html buttons.


@garyp, I agree with @Turtle regarding sticking to HTML buttons. If you want some pretty cool effects, though, you can’t go past Andrew Tavernor (Big White Duck) ButtonPlus stack. Here’s the link to the demo site where you can preview all the amazing hover effects Andrew has provided: http://demo.bigwhiteduck.com/ButtonPlus/Examples/

The cost? Yeah, well Andrew is known for charging outrageous prices and this one is no exception…$0! (But if you download any of his stacks, I really do encourage a donation that will at least let him buy a cup of coffee…gotta keep him in caffeine to keep writing amazing stacks).

Went to the link on iPad iOS 9.2 Safari and nothing moved. Didn’t even see a menu. Perhaps flash blocked? Another reason to use CSS and HTML for effects.

Flash is not just blocked, not supported, never has been on any modern iOS version.

The other problem with Flash is that it tends to be… well, flashy. Frankly, too much animation, especially in functional items such as navigation bars, is a big turn-off. Well, that’s how I feel, anyway.

@Keir I am assuming I have to have Foundation to use the buttons stack?

@garyp, ah, yes. I must admit that I tend to think of Rapidweaver only in Foundation terms. I’ve just written a rather lengthy review on Foundation in the Community section if you’re thinking of making the move.
