Overview

Users that have been granted developer access on a Stack have access to a “hidden” set of features that allow them to customise Widgets and Event Screen features via JavaScript and CSS. Customers are able to interface with either the markup or rendering aspects via hooks and events, or our activities APIs such as voting and commenting.

Widgets

Straight out of the box, Widgets are available in a variety of layouts and can have their displays customised when configured.

Stackla Widgets can further be customised to modify their look and feel, as well as their behaviour. By hooking into events (e.g. the rendering of a widget, voting, commenting, expanded-tile viewing, tracking) developers are able to both receive callbacks as well as provide data and markup to augment. Further events can be added by developers and frameworks such as jQuery can be utilised if needed.

Information on this section is currently in development. For more information, please contact a sales representative or Support if you are an existing customer.
