Two More seyDesign Stack Tutorials Added



seydesign
Two more seyDesign stacks tutorials have been added to the curriculum. Last week brought ZipBar and Slinkee to RapidWeaver Classroom, and this week I have added ZipList and MegaMenu tutorials.

The ZipList Stack creates an expandable list of content, and is a great solution for an FAQ, glossary, or simply to provide more details on items in a bulleted (or numbered) list.

The MegaMenu Stack is a very unique stack that can be especially beneficial when used in conjunction with the FreeStack Theme. It creates a menu with drop-downs that can contain descriptive content. While it is a great option for a main menu, it can also be used as a split-navigation menu in the main content of a page, or simply as a method of anchoring links to other areas of the same page. The MegaMenu tutorial will demonstrate a number of uses for the stack.

Check back next week for tutorials on stacks from Elixir Graphics -- another long-time RapidWeaver theme developer who has jumped into Stack Elements development in the past months. Also, as mentioned last week, tutorials on the new FreeStack Responsive theme are under development, so expect to hear more news on that very soon.

New seyDesign Stack Tutorials



seydesign
I am glad to have added tutorials on seyDesign’s stacks to the RapidWeaver Classroom curriculum. Many of you may know seyDesign for their excellent RapidWeaver themes, but they have been producing Stack Elements for some time now and I am creating tutorials for each of them. I’ve started with tutorials for ZipBar and Slinkee, which both offer methods of presenting a lot of content in a small amount of space. ZipBar creates a carousel-like effect, and Slinkee offers an accordion-style menu. Both are great stacks with a lot of flexibility.

I will be producing tutorials on the rest of seyDesign’s stacks over the next couple of weeks. In addition, a new series of tutorials on the FreeStack Responsive Theme is currently under development. This is a very exciting release, and you can learn more about it by viewing this overview video.

Check back next week for more details on new tutorials. Not a RapidWeaver Classroom subscriber? Join now!

Two New SEO Video Tutorials Added



There are two new tutorials that have been added to the SEO series -- Cruftless Links and Google +1.

The tutorial on crustless links discusses a different way of structuring the files and folders on your website. The “File and Folder Structure” tutorial in RapidWeaver Lesson 5 discusses how to customize your file and folder names in the Page Inspector, and this new Cruftless Links tutorial expands on that topic. I’ve placed it under the SEO section because descriptive URLs can be helpful for SEO.

The Google +1 tutorial discusses how the +1 button can indirectly influence your website’s placement in Google search results, and how it can lend credibility to your website as well, in a similar way that Google Authorship does. The button is easy to implement and this tutorial discusses those details.
