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…

Stacks on a non-Stacks page

Now I released my first Stacks, some of you asked me how to implement their functionality on non-Stacks pages like the Contact Form page, Blog Page and third-party plugin pages like SiteMap by Loghound YourHead.

The solution is really quite simple, but you will need the PlusKit Plugin. I know it's not free, but it's worth every cent for many reasons – not just for the solution described here! So, if you don't have PlusKit yet, buy a copy a.s.a.p. You will soon wonder how you ever could work without it!

Here's how it works:
  • Make a stacks page with the stack(s) you want to use on the non-Stacks page only.
  • Give it a simple name, e.g. mystackpage or whatever you like.
  • In Page Info > general disable Enabled and Show in menu for this page.
  • Add a PlusKit page.
  • In the PlusKit page, go to Inspector > Page, select the Import tab and make sure the checkboxes for @import and Stacks are enabled,
  • On the RapidBlog, Sitemap (or any other non-stacks page) put the text @import((mystackpage)) in a styled text area (sidebar, header, footer…).
  • Select this text and choose Format > Ignore formatting.
  • Make sure the text between the double brackets in @import((mystackpage)) is exactly the same as the page name (case sensitive!).

That's all!
