The FX "SPECIAL EFFECTS" series of stacks were created to build layouts that were previously difficult to create and make them as fast as possible in RapidWeaver Edit and Preview mode. The first FX1 series creates beautiful compact social media blog type layouts with a minimum of effort for users.
FX1, FXheight, FXwidth+ and FXwidth are currently only available (and included) with Template6.
FX1 was created to build those great rounded 2 column "Ghost blog" layouts that have become popular but were difficult to build in RapidWeaver. FX1 now makes this not only possible, but easy to understand and best of, remains quick because it is a dedicated layout stack that only does this one cool thing.
FXheight is a 3 range fixed height stack that makes creating layouts easy to understand. The main content cane centred vertically and horizontally so you don't have to worry about equalising column of adding padding. Heres the clever bit: You can also add content that is pinned to the top, or to the bottom (or both) so that different content is always aligned. All of this is done in a way that allows RapidWeaver to run quickly in Edit and Preview mode.
FXwidth+ (plus) was created to allow full control of the max width of its contents at 3 fully adjustable breakpoints and was designed to allow an FXheight to set it height. Together the rounding, shadow and remote image background with an overlay allow a quick way to build and control a pretty snazzy looking layout.
FXwidth is a reduced function version of FXwidth+ with multi breakpoint width settings and an option for a remote image background. Ideal for full width "banded" pages
