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 #65: SetOpacity Stack

Although Rapidweaver 7 was a great upgrade, I was really disappointed that it is still not possible to use semi-transparent colors in the theme settings.

Opacity is not only a nice touch to the design of your site, it is also imperative when you use page-wide backgrounds (like with my BackgroundImageRotator Stack, Simple Background Image 2 Stack, Simple Background Gradient Stack and Simple Background Repeat Stack). Big, non-transparent blocks on a page that cover an interesting background are just not cool.

This stack is an attempt to add opacity to the background color of elements that have their color defined by the theme. Although it is not perfect, it’s easy to use and works most of the time.
