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…

Kill that reset button

Ever since the beginning of the World Wide Web, almost every contact page has two buttons at the bottom: one to submit the form, and one to reset it. Fortunately, it's becoming less common these days, but it feels like few people are thinking about the reason it exists.

RapidWeaver's built-in contact form generates it. FormLoom1 did it, but I was happy to see FormLoom2 generates a submit button only by default, just like FormSnap.

Please ask yourself this question: when was the last time you used a reset button on a contact form? My best bet would be you never did. Let's face it: a reset button is useless and a potential cause of frustration. You never use it, nor will the visitors on your site, except maybe unintentionally, so they have to start all over filling the form again. It's just a bad habit, so let's stop with that now! Put the following CSS in Page Inspector > Header > CSS of your contact form:
input[type=reset] {
    display: none !important;

to get rid of that terrible reset button. You can download this code as a snippet here.

Still using FormLoom1? No problem, here's the CSS for that:
.fl-reset {
    display: none;

Did I miss a plugin or stack that also generates a reset button? Please post it here in the comments, so I can publish the CSS for it here. Let's change the contact forms, one site at the time…
