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…

Two important (manual) updates

Today I released two important updates: one for the SimpleSplash theme, and one for the Simple Background Image Stack.

First the SimpleSplash theme. There's a small change under the hood to provide better support on mobile devices. You can download the new version on the product page (feel free to set the price to zero, especially if you already paid for it). Just replace the old version with this new one, and you're done.

So far for the easy part. The Simple Background Image Stack appeared to give some problems on mobile devices under certain circumstances due to a bug in Safari for iOS. It took me a while to figure out a way to deal with it, and it turned out to be a hard nut to crack.

The only solution I found forced me to completely rewrite the stack. As a result, the background image no longer resides in the content area of the stack, but had to be moved to the HUD (the sidebar on the right). This means that an update of the current stack would break every page the stack is used on.

To avoid this, I had to decide to make a brand new stack. I called the Simple Background Image 2 Stack. If you own the original Simple Background Image Stack, please download the new version on the product page (feel free to set the price to zero, especially if you already paid for the original version). I’m afraid you will have to replace the original one on every page you used it and reimport your background image. This time you can choose between a local image or a ‘warehoused’ image on a server.

I will put out an automatic update on the original Simple Background Image Stack soon with a reminder in the stack’s info pane. Please don’t use it in new projects, and delete it as soon as you are sure this stack is no longer used in any of your projects.
