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 MacOS. 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!
no, not this way…

New & Free PWYW #3: NoHome Stack

Just a few days ago I released my first two stacks and I'm thrilled that so many people downloaded it – and (looking at the responses) like it. Thanks for all the reactions and donations, it's much appreciated! Several people pointed out to me that the NoLink Stack and the NoCurrent Stack disable most unneeded (and so: unwanted) links, but not all.

In more and more themes, clicking on the page title or the logo takes the visitor to the home page. A great feature that IMHO every theme should have, because most visitors expect this behavior. However, there's one page you don't want this: the home page itself! Writing a stack for that turned out to be more complicated than I expected, but I found a workable solution.

Meet the NoHome Stack. I designed it with only one purpose in mind: disable the link to the home page of the page title and/or the logo on the home page itself (when the theme you're using has this feature built in). Just add the stack to your home page and enter the full URL to your home page in Setup > Web Address and in the stack. I know, it would be far more elegant when the stack would retrieve the home url automatically, so you don't have to set it twice. I didn't find a solution for that yet, so any suggestions on how to achieve this is very welcome!

As always, the stack is completely free!

Update May 14, 2013: These items are no longer free. I changed to Pay What You Want. Read more about the what and why in this post.
