Community Gift from Dual Shard Designs

(Dual Shard) #1

Hello RapidWeaver community!

We are Dual Shard Designs, and are hoping to begin creating neat stuff for the community (if you’ll have us) :slightly_smiling_face:

We have made our first Stack, a simple to use floating notice that you can add to any element (to be put up on the addons page shortly). We will be giving it away as a new to the community gift. We only ask that you sign up to our newsletter to download it, and don’t worry, if newsletters aren’t your thing you can promptly unsubscribe. We hope to continue to make more useful things and look forward to interacting with you in the future!

Find out more about the Stack Here:

Looking forward to seeing your products. Personally, I am interested to see what kind of themes and projects developers are bringing now with RW8 in addition to stacks.
Ps. Love FL.

This stack looks really nice and handy. I would like to subscribe to get this, but your system is telling me to have a fake eMail-Address?! Is there another way to subscribe and get this stack? Or maybe buy it? @DualShardSupport

Welcome to the community! And thanks for the gesture of a free stack, will give it a testdrive :slight_smile:

Happy weaving

stack seems to be sample product only as no ability to change “example” notice.

(Sean) #6

hmmm, and how do we download the stack? Signed up and nothing as of the past hour…

(Greg Schneck) #7

same here… entered email and received no email (not in junk either) nor instruction for downloading…

(Robert Bassett) #8

Downloaded OK, but can’t seem to get it to work.

Same here, nothing shows up in RW preview or when viewed on chrome/safari

Could be fishing for email addresses.
The user who posted this only joined the forum a few hours before the post. I personally wouldn’t do anything including give up an email address from a developer that doesn’t identify themselves.

(Rob Beattie) #12

I’m also struggling to make it display anything at all.

(Gavin Dudeney) #13

I just used a made up email address and downloaded the zip file… but still, not overly tempted to unzip until I hear a little more from them.

Thanks for the stack! From what is immediately noticeable (in RW 7, in RW 8 did not try): if the shadow is enabled, the animation does not work; and when the animation itself works, it is not quite smooth in the browser.

(Robert Ziebol 🖖🏼) #15

I signed up for this too. He uses the Mailchimp code to collect email address, which gives you an option to not receive the newsletter he is supposedly collecting for (which I opted to stop the newsletter). Also, I looked at his site, not made with RapidWeaver. I know not all developers do this, but if you make a product for RapidWeaver, I believe you should use RapidWeaver to make the site for that product. Just my belief.

(Robert Bassett) #16

Disabling the shadow works in RW8. With shadow enabled, the animation wasn’t visible for me in either RW7 or RW8.

(Wondrous) #17

What’s so embarrassing? Checked online for viruses, none. The letter did not come in the mail, and you can unsubscribe from the mailing, probably.

(EricW) #18

I can confirm that, needs some polishing ;). Also, after you sign up you get a response-page from Mailchimp and on that you will find a link for the download…

(Dual Shard) #19

After signing up you will be taken to a new page that has a message and the download link. If you missed this screen, no worries, shoot us a message and we will get you a new download link.

The example you are seeing in edit mode is only to show the styles as you make changes. You will need to switch to preview mode to see it in action. This is because we allow you to add your own Stacks content, having that content display fully could end up covering your workspace and causing problems in edit mode.

If you are adding the Stack to a blank project to check it out, you will need to either add padding or content above the Stack. The notice displays above the content, so if the content is hugging the top of the page it will display above it and out of view.

Hello Wondrous,

We can’t seem to recreate this behavior, though we will continue testing to make sure there are no bugs. Feel free to contact us to let us know more details and we should be able to get is sorted out.
