Note: If you are a subscriber to our email updates then you may not have received a notification of the last RapidWeaver Classroom update featuring the PrivateEyes Stack. If you did not receive information on that update then you can read about it here.

Parts 2 and 3 of the PrivateEyes Stack tutorial series have been added to the RapidWeaver Classroom curriculum. While Part 1 covered how PrivateEyes can be used to password-protect content, Parts 2 and 3 focus on how the stack can be used to hide and reveal content on a page using links. This functionality can be very useful in situations where you want to present a lot of content without cluttering the page. You can sort content by topic or category and have that content appear and disappear as different topics are selected on the page.

Next week I will be posting a new tutorial with information on how to add Font Awesome icons to your website. I am also working on a major redesign of RapidWeaver Classroom that will bring a lot of new functionality and organization to improve your experience with the service. I am still weeks away from completing it, but I look forward to sharing it with you soon!

Thanks for your support!

Start of New Series Covering the PrivateEyes Stack

I have been spending a lot of time with the PrivateEyes Stack from seyDesign, and am glad to finally present the first tutorial for this amazing stack. PrivateEyes is very unique in its ability to hide and password-protect content on your website. Prior to the release of PrivateEyes, you needed to use the Lockdown Plugin if you wanted to protect content or web pages with a password. Of course having this functionality in a stack is tremendous when most of us build our websites using the Stacks 2 plugin, so PrivateEyes is a great alternative for a Stacks user who needs this kind of functionality.

Now I am typically able to cover the functionality of a stack in a single tutorial, but PrivateEyes is a bit more complex and does a number of different things, so I thought it would be best to cover this particular stack with multiple tutorials. I have released Part 1 this week, which discusses a couple of different methods of password-protecting content on a page, and a run-time of nearly 20 minutes guarantees a lot of detailed instruction on how to use this stack for that purpose. The next tutorials will build on the information presented in Part 1, to show some other ways that the stack can be used -- those tutorials will be released late next week.

Thanks for your support!
