I am fairly new to RapidWeaver, and am trying to figure out how to add images in general and am having a hard time.
I am using the Split theme, and would like to change the images in the circles on the home page just as a starting exercise. I double click on it, it gives me a path, and I change the path to resources/filename.jpg and it doesn’t appear. I tried removing the path, same thing. Tried …/resources, same thing. Even tried /resources for the path. The Edit window never shows the new image, nor am I able to see it at all in most cases in preview, but if I am in preview it will still sometimes show the old image.
I figured ok, I’ll remove those boxes and add an image. Should be easy enough, right? It seems I am mistaken. I have images in Resources, but I can’t drag them over… there doesn’t seem to be a clear way to add them. I found some hack online about opening the inspector, dragging the image over to the sidebar space and then it can be placed, but that seems like it isn’t going to work for multiple images and really, seems to defeat the purpose of Resources.
I’ve been Googling for the past few days, and all I am really able to find are articles and videos about using Stacks, which from what I can tell is a chargeable plugin. It seems to be self defeating that I’d have to spend more money on a product just to be able to successfully place some images.
I could be doing it wrong (I HOPE so)… but I can’t find the resources to correct what I am doing. Would anyone be able to tell me how I should be doing this, or guide me to appropriate resources that talk about how to do so? Adding an image shouldn’t be this hard!
In summary, the 2 questions I have are:
How do I change the images in the Split theme, the circle ones
What is the proper way to add an image to the page in general
Do I really need to purchase Stacks or Blocks right after purchasing RapidWeaver
