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 #82: DownloadLinkIcon Stack

#
The stack I introduce today is more or less a sibling of the ExternalLinkIcon3 Stack, but instead of adding an icon to the end of a link to another page, it adds an icon before or after a (text) link to a downloadable file. The stack will automatically add the most appropriate Font Awesome icon based on the file extension, but you can also override its choice.

The DownloadLinkIcon Stack works seamlessly together with the LinkPlus Stack, so you can now also make download links easier to use for visitors with vision and dexterity impairments in mind – and at the same time make those links look cool too.

Another nifty feature of the DownloadLinkIcon Stack is that you can optionally force a download of the file instead of the file opening in the browser (see the product page for browser support).

Please visit the product page for more information, examples, an article on how to deal with downlinks best and more.
