I want the viewer to be able to start a slide, usually after reading a text. The progression of the images is important to the telling of a story. I have been using Impact and several other slide stacks. Ideally, the slide should show in a lightbox. I appreciate any suggestions.
Not totally sure that I understand what you’re after but a couple of things came to mind:
My bad. I needed to specify that it was to start a slideshow. The sliders I have will start immediately on loading or when scrolled into view. It’s important that the viewer has a chance to read the text and then see the slideshow presenting the pictures in proper sequence. I hope this helps.
I thought impact had an autoplay switch?
Yes, Impact also has external controls, so I believe you could set a ‘play’ button after your text. You can see an example on the demo site: https://preview.joeworkman.net/impact/controls/
That would be a perfect solution if I were able to do it. Unfortunately, I’m a novice and have no clue on how to add classes to a button. I would appreciate help on understanding how to do this.
I’m not at my RW computer to show a screenshot, but I see a similar one at this link here: https://docs.joeworkman.net/rapidweaver/stacks/expose/button-launch
So, when you go to set the link for your button, use
class and the value would be one of the ‘Impact’ classes.
@zeebe can correct me if I’m wrong but that should be all you need.
Button Plus is my ‘go-to’ button stack, but it should work with others as well.
I hope you don’t mind my responding directly to your email. I am attaching 2 screen shots of my button and Impact settings as
it does not seem to be working. Also, is there a way to stop Impact from autoplay until it’s activated from an external control?
I really appreciate the time you have already spent on me.
Happy to help but I’m going a little bit off of guesswork/memory for some of this as I don’t have access to RW at my day job. I’ll defer to the Joe Workman crew, but I think the class may need to match one of the ones listed here: https://preview.joeworkman.net/impact/controls/ so
impactid-start for example.
The easier thing might be to try and donwload the demo project and check out the settings there. There’s a link to the demo project in the left sidebar of this page: https://docs.joeworkman.net/rapidweaver/stacks/impact/settings
As for the autoplay, I think there should be a setting for that in the Impact setup as well.
By Golly I got it, or I should say, You Got It! However, Impact continues to start immediately on loading or when scrolled into view. I searched for a setting to control this but to no avail. Any one know where it is at?
From the documentation under Animation there are two buttons for autoplay default is true, false (play once)
