FoundationTemplates 

Review by Rob Beattie » 3 december 2016

How were we supposed to know the guards patrolling Area 51 had a shoot to kill policy? Still, the sacrifice was worth it. We managed to get hold of some of Jochen Abitz’s Foundation templates and you can read all about it here…

Less Is No More

Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find yourself, go mad just to find your sanity again. And in design terms that’s where I’ve been recently, stumbling through the heart of my creative darkness, searching for a way out.

RapidWeaver Central Maintenance

From 2nd August to 1st September 2016, RapidWeaver Central will be offline while we perform some much needed maintenance to our rather shapely but oft-neglected backend.

Extra, Extra, Read All About It!

The RWExtras site has been down for some time now and if you visited the site recently, you’ll have noticed a message from Will Woodgate saying he’s working on a site revival.Well, RWExtras is now back online and the stacks – which hadn’t been updated in an age – have all been rewritten.

Adjacent Spaces

Some weeks ago, I downloaded Sections Pro from the BWD site. It was only now that I was able to take a look at what I’d downloaded. I did try, but was hindered by the fact that in RW 7.1 nothing seemed to work as it should, not to mention the regular crashes.

Gutenberg & Layerz

Johannes Gensfleisch, better known as Gutenberg, was the German blacksmith/goldsmith who introduced movable type to European printing and is the father of the modern printing industry. Like the scribes before him, he realised that large texts require a smaller printed area if displayed in columns.

Ups And Downs

Do you oversee a charity website? Are you responsible for an online project? If you do, you may have asked yourself how to demonstrate how your project is progressing – is the project’s funding going as planned – is your project nearing completion, or is there still some way to go?

What Does It Cost?

You can always trust Marten to come up with a business orientated solution to some problem or other. I’ve seen a number of forum posts asking “What’s the easiest way to build a price list?” RapidWeaver Central now has the answer – PriceThing.

Concertina

Remember Aaron’s Switchr? It wasn’t the most elegant of stacks in edit mode – it took up the whole screen. But it was a novel stack that allowed you to choose whether it was an accordion or a tabbed stack – useful for elegantly switching through various sets of information on a webpage – but only if you liked the predefined themes.

Sayonara. Hasta la vista. Maido. It’s time to go.

Yuzool Themes, Stacks and Widgets have served thousands over the years and are still as useful in projects in 2016 as they were when they were created. But now everything must go. Michael’s set a limited number for sale — 250 — and once that’s reached, that’s it, end of sale. In other words, you can save about $200 but it’s first come first served.
