Two More WeaverPix Plugin Tutorials



weaverpix
This week’s update bring two more tutorials to the new WeaverPix series. If you haven’t had the opportunity to view last week’s WeaverPix tutorials, then I highly recommend spending some time viewing these four videos. WeaverPix is a very powerful image gallery/slideshow solution, and these two new videos go into more detail on what makes this plugin so great.

The third video in the series, Using WeaverPix Themes, details the process of selecting the best theme for your photo gallery. Many of the WeaverPix themes are responsive and work in responsive RapidWeaver themes, and this topic is discussed as well.

The fourth video, Adding Warehoused Images, discusses a different way of adding photos to your website, using a web-based admin area for managing your images. This option provides a lot of flexibility for managing and updating the photos on your website without the use of RapidWeaver. The video walks through all of the setup and details for using the warehousing option.

WeaverPix offers even more ways of adding and managing photos, and so next week’s update will discuss the use of 3rd-party services -- Flickr, Picasa, 500px and Dribble. Check back late next week for more information on the next update.

Thanks for your support!

New WeaverPix 3 Series of Tutorials



WeaverPix 3 Slideshow Plugin RapidWeaver
New tutorials covering the WeaverPix 3 plugin have been added to RapidWeaver Classroom. This is an outstanding solution for image slideshows or photo galleries on your website. It is extremely powerful and flexible, and you’ll simply have to see these tutorials to get an understanding of all that it can accomplish.

The first two of a whole series of tutorials on WeaverPix 3 have been posted to the Classroom curriculum. WeaverPix can do so much that I will be producing more tutorials over the next couple of weeks in order to cover all of its features.

If you are looking for a solution for displaying images or photos on your website, then I would highly recommend giving WeaverPix 3 a serious look. While so much focus has been on building pages with the Stacks 2 plugin, this is a case where a dedicated plugin can be very beneficial. WeaverPix 3 is very impressive, and I look forward to completing this entire series of tutorials so that you can see how powerful it is. So with that being said, check back late next week for more tutorials in this series.

Thanks for your support!

Three More Stacks Tutorials Posted



Last Friday I posted an update that brings three more Stack Elements tutorials to RapidWeaver Classroom. I have released tutorials for the FormSnap Suite from Yabdab, and the Masonry and SuperBox stacks from seyDesign.

The new FormSnap Suite tutorial covers what might be the most flexible contact form solution for RapidWeaver. The FormSnap Suite is a collection of stack elements that allows you to build a very flexible contact form on a Stacks page. Since the form is built with the Stacks plugin, you have all the layout flexibility that Stacks offers. If you are familiar with Yabdab’s FormLoom plugin, then you might consider this a Stacks-based version of that form.

The other two stack element tutorials cover Masonry and SuperBox, both from seyDesign. Both of these stacks produce fantastic image galleries, with thumbnails and full-size images displayed in a lightbox. Masonry produces a layout of thumbnails similar to Pinterest, and presents the full-size image in a lightbox window overlay. SuperBox takes a different approach and generates square thumbnails in a tight grid, and then produces the full-size image in a very unique manner. You’ll have to watch the video to see how unique of a stack it is.

Production of weaverPix plugin tutorials is already underway and those will be published later this week, so check back here for more information.
