CSS Stylesheet Inside RW
We have a new screencast here, and it's a long one! It's over 25 minutes! It's all about adding a stylesheet to your RapidWeaver projects inside RapidWeaver, allowing you to edit theme styles and still be able to update your chosen theme when the new version comes out.
It also shows you how to use the Web Developer tools built into Safari's WebKit inside RapidWeaver itself to help you do the job. We only have a quick download link for it right now, but there will be a more detailed text style tutorial to go with it.
It is a little rushed people, as I'd promised this long ago, so please forgive the random feel to the cast and the quiet audio, but it's been long overdue.
This tutorial is designed to help people get 'under the hood' of a RapidWeaver theme to make those little changes you really need. We provide links to useful apps to help you edit the files contained in the theme.
Styled Text areas are available in many parts of RapidWeaver, and in many plugins too. It is one of it's big strengths. Learn here how to start making the most of what this big part of RapidWeaver has to offer.
A tutorial to show you how to add a logo with a mouseover type effect to your RapidWeaver project. We either add it to the project, or to the theme used.
Here we have a tutorial designed to allow you to get pages from larger iWeb projects into RapidWeaver without having to code them from scratch. This should save considerable time over rewriting all your pages straight away.
This outlines some of the differences and some of the reasons why you might want to choosing one or the other.
There are major differences, but some of these are not immediately obvious. We hope it helps with what to expect and why too.
This tutorial is designed to reduce the number of stylesheet calls in a RapidWeaver theme to help when you have pages that exceed the number permitted by Internet Exploder Explorer.
This happens when your content chosen requires additional calls and the theme has already used the avialable number.
This is an older tutorial for those of you still using RapidWeaver 3.6.x as it can't publish directly to the 'personal' hosting space on MobileMe, ie web.me.com/username/ which is where domains pointed at MobileMe accounts are directed.
This shows you how to get around this limitation. RapidWeaver 4.x has this facility built in.
