I JUST downloaded RapidWeaver from Apples App Store. BRAND new to webdesig. Played two hours with a friends WP site but not in love with the user interface of WP. Maybe because I do not know much. Planning to watch videos about RW this weekend.
Are there any extra/add-ons that is necessary and that is smart to buy this weekend since it seems to be a lot of great offers? Kind of no-brainers to get and that I will ba angry on Tuesday that I did not get while at 50% off :-).
Aha I thought so. I am Swedish but live and work here in the US since 10 years so my English far from perfect!
I kind of bought RW7 based up on the fact that it was a MAC app. Easier to understand. I love DevonThink too and now I have the task to take care of a homepage made in WP but hope I can buy software so it can be changed in RW instead. I am a total newbie and I really appreciate all your help!
I think Scott was referring to stacks and plug-ins as being totally different. Plug-ins add functionality to RW, whereas stacks require the Yourhead Stacks plug-in. RW comes with a number of stock plug-ins (contact form, markdown, html, etc.) and others are available such as Formloom, Rapidcart, Rapidbot, Sitemap Pro, Pluskit etc.
Go slow, don’t get hung up on the sales. You can spend a lot of money on RapidWeaver add-ons and end up with a lot of stuff you’ll never use.
I would download the free trial version of stacks, and if it goes on sale this weekend buy it. You’re the best bet would be to keep checking your head’s tweeter in the post above.
You might want to look for a theme, many themes are on sale, so if you find one that fits what you’re looking for then buy it.
Floodtheme’s has a large selection, but again make sure it’s something you’ll think you’ll use.
All of stuff including Floodtheme on this post have free trial versions, although you don’t have a lot of time to get the sale price.
Hi, @BasilFawlty , I would recommend stuff from Will Woodgate @willwood, great stacks and themes and impeccable customer service. Will is always available to help. See some of his websites and check it out.
Very good discounts too …
ok thanks! Will spend some time today and tomorrow to try to LEARN the app itself! I have a friends homepage to play with but that is constructed in WordPress and I am not sure if it is like Pages/Word - that you can open his homepage, change it and then update it on the server again. Or if you have to start to make a new homepage from scratch. Time will tell! Like this forum, seems to an active one.
