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!

New & Free PWYW #6: Contact Form Placeholder Stack

Usually, contact forms are not the most exciting pages on a site. On the other hand, they may well be the most important page on your site: it's the last step between a potential customer and you. A good reason to make filling in a form as easy as possible.
Showing a text inside the form field as an example or explanation of what should be entered in that field can be helpful. In HTML5, you can use the placeholder attribute for that. Unfortunately, browser support is not great (guess what? no Internet Explorer!). Besides that: the placeholder attribute is not supported at all in the built in Contact Form Page.

Now there's a solution: the Contact Form Placeholder Stack. With this stack, you can add placeholder texts (or example texts, if you prefer) to the Text Field and Text Areas of a Contact Form. Filling in a form has never been that easy!

With this stack, you can even remove the labels of the fields to create a clean, minimalistic form. As a bonus, you can even remove that useless Reset button (see this post to read why that's a good idea).

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.
