Every Day Free – But Never Cheap!
Exclusively for RapidWeaver users • only free and low-cost stuff

Another RapidWeaver blog

Yes, it's true: one more blog about our favorite web site building application for MacOSX. But this one is a little different. It started back in 2011 as a blog focusing solely on free and low-cost stuff for (producing a web site with) RapidWeaver: themes, tools, tips, tricks, anything, as long as it was free – or low-cost.
    Over time, the Stacks plugin became more popular, and coding yourself was no longer an option for many people, so I started to develop my own stacks in the spirit of the blog: free (well, actually pay-what-you-want) and low-cost.
    This blog evolved with it, and is now primarily about those new stacks, although from time to time I will post about other free and low-cost stuff for RapidWeaver.

Do you know something free (or low-cost) & useful related to RapidWeaver not mentioned here? Have a suggestion for a subject to write about here or for a new stack?
Tips, questions and remarks are always welcomed.
Just and help expand this little blog!

A relative URL in RapidWeaver made easier

Usually, making an internal link in RapidWeaver is a breeze. Sometimes (like when you’re using my Contact Form Populator stack, you can’t use RapidWeaver’s built in link panel to automatically make such an internal link. What to do then?

Testing a new commenting system

Just a quick note to let you know I'm testing a new, and hopefully better commenting system.
As you may have noticed, I'm using the RapidBlog plugin for this blog. I’m really happy with it, but the Blogger commenting system I’ve been using so far, is disappointing to say the least: no threads, no comment editing, posting a comment opens an ugly popup…

Last July, I introduced my first two stacks. Over the last 10 months this number grow to 11 (so over 1 stack per month average) and I have more coming soon. All these stacks have been free. All I asked for was a small donation if you were happy with them and used them in a (commercial) project.

A 404 page that works

A custom 404 page is more or less essential if you don't want to lose visitors. It's always annoying to be confronted with a 404 page, and the chances are real they will leave immediately, especially when it's such an ugly standard 404 page. A well designed 404 page can gently lead them to a more useful page. And remember: it's not always you fault when they land on a non-existing page. You never know who has done you the pleasure to link to your site, but make a typo in the url.
