Creating extraContents

How to add extraContents to a theme which doesn’t have or doesn’t have enough?

You would have to rewrite a portion of the theme internally to accomplish what you’re asking about.

Yeah I guess it should take place somewhere in the html file (?) My question is how?

Do you know how to update a theme? If not, try a blank theme or Foundation, which lets you create your own ECs.

Would this work for you?


kicking it old school, as we say, yes, David :slight_smile:

Trying this with Veerle theme, I get “Hello world!” in the sidebar.

Perhaps Veerle is one of the 1% of themes that it won’t work with. Can you try it on another theme? Also, did you use ‘paste as plain text’ when you pasted it in the sidebar?

Apparently you can also place the EC snippet in the page content wherever you want it to show up. Maybe try that?

@Rubin Veerle is one of the classic freebie themes supplied with RapidWeaver. As far as I know, it has never supported ExtraContent. So no ExtraContent stack or code snippet will work for you in that theme.

Do yourself a favour and don’t waste time with those ancient themes. They are a dead loss! Head over to ThemeFlood or seyDesign and get yourself something better. Even some of the free theme designs there are ExtraContent enabled.


yeah sure I really didn’t intend to use Veerle :grinning: I just thought it was a good idea to experiment the tweak on a simple theme. Actually I am thinking about using a Nick Cates theme “Writer” and it doesn’t have extraContent so…
