Stack Info

Overview

Flows your content through a series of dynamic columns.

You set the desired column width, and add your content in the form of other stacks inside. From there on out, Tabloid will handle the flow of the content through the maximum amount of columns it can fit in the current screen width at the size you set.

When the screen gets smaller the stack will accommodate by reducing the number and width of the columns where necessary.

Quick Fact : This stack functions purely on CSS, no javascript involved, and is fully supported on all modern browsers. Really old versions of Internet Explorer 9 and below will gracefully fall back to a single column display.

Settings

In this section, we have provided a comprehensive list of available settings, and a full description of what each of the settings does for the stack.

Column Width

This is your ideal width for the columns. Tabloid will try and fit as many columns of this width into the available width it has available. When the width reduces, so does the number of columns.

Spacing

This is the space between each of the columns in pixels.

Dividers

Sets the colour of the divider lines between each of the columns. If you'd like to hide the lines completely, just set the colours opacity to 0 in the pop-up colour picker.

Edit Mode

We pay great attention to how we approach the editing interface of every stack, to ensure intuitive ease of use.

Tabloid shows you a preview of the columns that will be produced for any given screen size at the top of the stack. Just add your stacks content to the drop zone in the center, and it will flow through the columns in the previewed and published page.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. Just remember that the things you put into your head are there forever, he said. You might want to think about that. You forget some things, dont you?
Yes. You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget.
You can tell yourself that you would be willing to lose everything you have in order to get something you want. But it’s a catch-22: all of those things you’re willing to lose are what make you recognizable. Lose them, and you’ve lost yourself. The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.
