Details of New Updates

This update brings a couple of weeks' worth of tutorials to the Foundation series. Now at a total of 16 videos, this series on the Foundation Theme is approaching completion, and there is currently enough information to get you well on your way to building websites with this excellent theme.

The first new tutorial in this update covers the use of Foundation's Visibility Stack to show and/or hide content based on the device being used to view the website. The Visibility Stack can be very useful and something every Foundation user should understand, so this tutorial is highly recommended.

The following two tutorials in this update focus on the variety of Dynamic Layout stacks that are available for Foundation. These stacks include: Orbit Slider, Reveal Lightbox, Tabs, Accordion, Dropdown, Alerts and Clearing Gallery. These stacks offer tremendous functionality and I highly recommend taking the time to learn how they can be used.

Finally, the fourth tutorial covers the creation of forms in Foundation. Foundation's Starter Pack and Add-On Pack 1 include a number of stacks that can be used to create powerful, flexible forms on your website. Most every website needs at least a contact form, so be sure to check out this tutorial as well.

In Case You Missed It (Recent Updates)

Recent changes have been made to the Classroom membership area. You will now find a "Featured Tutorials" section on the Home page, and I've adjusted the styling of some elements throughout the tutorial sections, which I hope will improve the user experience as you navigate through the different tutorials. I have also been working to implement RapidSearch Pro in the membership area as another method of finding tutorials, but some hurdles related to the protection of the content has prevented that from being successful so far. I do hope to have this working relatively soon, but for the time being you can use your browser's Find function (CMD+F) on the Browse All page to search for tutorials.

A series of 14 new tutorials covering the Stacks 2.5 plugin were released in the first half of March. I highly recommend these new tutorials for every RapidWeaver user! Click here to learn more about these Stacks 2.5 tutorials.

The past few months have brought a number of other new tutorials: one covering the customization of banners or slideshows in the header of 3rd-party RapidWeaver themes, another discussing a method of embedding responsive YouTube videos, and there have been many new Stack Elements tutorials covering the PaySnap, MapSnap, DateSnap and BackSnap Stacks from Yabdab, the Content Fader Stack from DK Stacks, the PlayListr Stack from StackManiac, and the Jack Stack from Joe Workman. A couple of "How to..." tutorials on replacing an existing website and creating a mySQL database have been added, along with a couple of tutorials covering the excellent RapidSearch Pro plugin. Finally, a new series on the aMember 4 membership system was produced and is available to Grad School subscribers.

Coming Soon (Future Updates)

We are nearing completion of the Foundation tutorial series, so check back next week for some of the final Foundation tutorials.

Thanks for your support!

If you've been following the recent updates here at RapidWeaver Classroom then you know I've been producing a series of tutorials on the excellent Foundation Theme from Joe Workman. This week brings two more tutorials to the series, for a total of 12 videos at about 2.5 hours of training.

The first of these two videos covers the basics of content layout in Foundation. A number of Foundation stacks are discussed in this video, and it is a must-see tutorial for anyone working with Foundation.

The second tutorial covers some more advanced layout options -- Offset and Source Order -- for the Foundation columns stacks. Foundation offers so much control over the layout of content from one device to the next, and this tutorial provides another demonstration of the flexibility of this theme and its stacks.

Four more tutorials have been added to the Foundation Theme series here at RapidWeaver Classroom.

Details of New Updates

These new tutorials provide a ton of information on adding navigation to your website in the Foundation Theme. Foundation's navigation options are highly customizable and produce very impressive results. This is a significant part of building websites with Foundation, so I have put a lot of time into these tutorials and they should be very helpful to you as you work with the theme.

The Founation tutorial series is currently at 10 videos totaling over 2 hours of run-time. At this point, the Foundation series covers most all of the major topics that you need to understand in order to build websites with the theme. That being the case, there are still a number of Foundation stacks that I want to cover, and those tutorials will be coming over the next several weeks. I hope that you find these latest tutorials helpful, and I look forward to providing you with more next week.

Overview of New Updates

This week brings two more tutorials to the new Foundation Theme series here at RapidWeaver Classroom.

Details of New Updates

Last week I released the first 4 tutorials in a new series on the outstanding Foundation Theme from Joe Workman. This week, tutorials 5 and 6 in the Foundation series are available and cover the use of Site Styles in Foundation. This is a very important topic as Site Styles is used on every page of your Foundation website, and plays a major role in the look and feel of your website.

Once you have a good grasp of the training provided in these first 6 Foundation tutorials, you are well on your way to building complete websites with Foundation. The one major area of training that is still missing is the addition of navigation in Foundation, and that topic will be covered in great detail in next week's tutorial update. Even then this tutorial series will not be complete, as I plan to cover many of the individual stacks in detail, and discuss some other helpful topics along the way, so check back regularly as more training is added to this series.

New Foundation Theme Series -- First 4 Tutorials Now Available



yeti

Overview of New Updates

I am very excited to announce the start of a new tutorial series on the Foundation Theme from Joe Workman.

Instructions for Classroom Subscribers

Login here to access your account, then navigate to the Classroom curriculum and click on the Latest Updates button for direct links to these new tutorials.

Details of New Updates

The Foundation Theme is an exciting "blank" theme for RapidWeaver that allows you create the entire layout of a website, using the Stacks 2 plugin and its Stack Elements. Joe Workman's Foundation Theme is free to download, but he has developed over 60 Foundation Stacks that take working with Foundation to a whole new level. The Foundation Theme and its stacks can be used to develop amazing, responsive websites, but there is a new learning curve involved because of Foundation's "mobile first" design philosophy. Of course this new series of Foundation tutorials here at RapidWeaver Classroom will ease the learning curve by covering all of the important details.

Today I have released the first 4 tutorials in this new series, and I will be spending the next several weeks producing many more, so you can be assured that the completed series will provide very thorough training on the Foundation Theme and the Foundation Stacks. The Foundation series of tutorials can be found under Tutorials > Add-Ons > Themes in the Classroom members' area.

Foundation is a truly impressive achievement and brings an exciting new concept of website design to RapidWeaver. I look forward to sharing all of the details with you over these next several weeks!
