Hi. Just some general points about RapidWeaver that I need clearing up.
I’ve been using RapidWeaver for years hosting some simple sites, in order to give myself a presence. In the past I’ve used third party themes, but have seen some in v 8 that look great as they are. But I’ve few questions as I’m trying to take it a bit further and blog, sell things, create a landing page and so on.
How much control is there in the themes that come with RW8? How much can the themes do, and at what point do I have to purchase an external one. I love the look of Artful, but can I get it to do the things I need - a blog page, a selling page, a landing page an so on. By that I mean can I make the RW theme have a good blog, etc. Are these add ons I have to purchase? I really like how Artful looks, so can I keep that look or do I have to go elsewhere and purchase a theme to give me everything I need.
Regarding blog issues, when I preview RW in Safari I can see the Archive and Feeds in the sidebar, but not when I publish. (This also happens in the theme I purchased as well as Artful)
Can I do all those other things in the RW themes, or do I need to purchase one from a developer.
I think what I need is a nice thick “Idiots Guide” to Rapid Weaver, if such things exist. Is there something like that on-line?
Thanks so much - Nigel
