New Stack and How to… Tutorials



I’ve updated the Classroom curriculum today with two more tutorials. One tutorial is for the Rotatr Stack, the latest stack from StackManiac. The Rotatr Stack rotates through any type of Stacks content, so it is very flexible in allowing you to present a lot of different kinds of content in a single content space on your web page.

The second tutorial has been added to the How to… lesson of the Continuing Ed section, and it is about creating a placeholder menu item in your website menu. With thanks to Joe Workman for creating an easy-to-use snippet, you can prevent a menu item from linking to its own page. This is great when you want website visitors to skip a top-level page to go directly to a sub-page. The most common use for this is when you are working with a theme that has drop-down menus. The required snippet is provided as a download on the How to… lesson page.

Check back next week for more tutorials on Yabdab stacks, and I will also begin to release a series of tutorials on the excellent weaverPix plugin.

Thanks for your support!

Lots of Updates to Share



It’s been a while since I posted here to the public RapidWeaver Classroom Blog, but there has been a lot going on and almost too much to share in a single blog post, so I will briefly summarize the updates here and if you want more details you can view the Members Blog that is available to subscribers.

Website Upgrade

RapidWeaver Classroom moved to a new hosting server earlier this month. I am very happy to be with Javabean Hosting and RapidWeaver Classroom has never been faster!

Along with the server move, I have updated the members area to improve navigation throughout all of the tutorials, and there is now the option to view and search the full listing of tutorials on a single page.

New Tutorials

A number of new tutorials have been posted to the Classroom curriculum in the past 6 weeks…
  • SEO Tutorials: I highly recommend that everyone view these latest tutorials -- Google Places for Business and Geographic Targeting
  • Elixir Stacks Tutorials: Four new tutorials on great Stack Elements from Elixir.
  • StackManiac Stacks Tutorial: A new tutorial on the Viewr Stack.
  • Yabdab Stacks Tutorials: Two new tutorials on stacks from Yabdab.

Upcoming Tutorials

I am producing more stacks tutorials for release on Friday of this week. I am also developing more new content for the Strategies section, as well as full coverage of the weaverPix plugin, a very impressive photo gallery option for RapidWeaver. Tutorial releases will be coming very regularly now that the server move is complete, and I will continue to post about updates here, so check back often!

Thanks for your support!
