Lesson 7 Updated for RapidWeaver 5

Lesson 7 of the RapidWeaver 5 curriculum in Section 101 has been updated with new tutorials using RapidWeaver 5. These tutorials are primarily targeted at advanced users, or those familiar with HTML and CSS code, as they deal with theme modification. These tutorials provide an overview of the structure of a RapidWeaver theme and the specific files that are involved with making modifications. If you are interested in the information provided in these screencasts, but are not familiar with HTML and CSS code, then you might find the Grad School curriculum useful.

The updating of Lesson 7 marks the completion of the original RapidWeaver Classroom curriculum, using RapidWeaver 5. At least one additional lesson will be added to the “core curriculum” in the coming weeks, detailing many additional topics that any website developer should be familiar with. Not every topic will be directly related to RapidWeaver, but knowledge of these topics is important and should be very helpful when building and publishing any website.

Thanks for your continued support! Happy

Nearly 50 New Tutorials on RapidWeaver 5.0!

That’s right! RapidWeaver 5.0 is here at last, and RapidWeaver Classroom is ready! I am very excited about the release of RapidWeaver 5.0, and also very excited to announce that nearly 50 new video tutorials have been created to cover the latest version. Section 101 has been almost entirely refreshed with brand new screencasts on RapidWeaver 5.0 The very, very few original tutorials that remain will soon be replaced as well.

So what’s new with RapidWeaver 5.0? As part of the Section 101 curriculum, I have created a special section with the specific videos that cover the major new features to version 5.0 -- Resources, Stats, the Sitemap page, CSS consolidation and some new themes! If you want a quick overview of what’s new, then check out those tutorials first.

If you are still using RapidWeaver 3.6 or 4.0, I have kept those original tutorials available as part of an archived curriculum, so if you add everything together, there are over 200 unique video tutorials available to RapidWeaver Classroom subscribers!

As mentioned above, there are some very select tutorials in Section 101 that have yet to be updated. Those will all be replaced with version 5.0 tutorials very soon. Additionally, I will be creating completely new lessons that discuss other important aspects of developing websites in RapidWeaver, so stay tuned for those in the coming weeks!
