Details of New UpdatesLast week I released the first 4 tutorials in a new series on the outstanding Foundation Theme from Joe Workman. This week, tutorials 5 and 6 in the Foundation series are available and cover the use of Site Styles in Foundation. This is a very important topic as Site Styles is used on every page of your Foundation website, and plays a major role in the look and feel of your website.
Once you have a good grasp of the training provided in these first 6 Foundation tutorials, you are well on your way to building complete websites with Foundation. The one major area of training that is still missing is the addition of navigation in Foundation, and that topic will be covered in great detail in next week's tutorial update. Even then this tutorial series will not be complete, as I plan to cover many of the individual stacks in detail, and discuss some other helpful topics along the way, so check back regularly as more training is added to this series.
In Case You Missed It (Recent Updates)Recent changes have been made to the Classroom membership area. You will now find a "Featured Tutorials" section on the Home page, and I've adjusted the styling of some elements throughout the tutorial sections, which I hope will improve the user experience as you navigate through the different tutorials. I have also been working to implement RapidSearch Pro in the membership area as another method of finding tutorials, but some hurdles related to the protection of the content has prevented that from being successful so far. I do hope to have this working relatively soon, but for the time being you can use your browser's Find function (CMD+F) on the Browse All page to search for tutorials.
A series of 14 new tutorials covering the Stacks 2.5 plugin were released in the first half of March. I highly recommend these new tutorials for every RapidWeaver user! Click here to learn more about these Stacks 2.5 tutorials.
The past couple of months have brought a number of other new tutorials: one covering the customization of banners or slideshows in the header of 3rd-party RapidWeaver themes, another discussing a method of embedding responsive YouTube videos, and there have been many new Stack Elements tutorials covering the PaySnap, MapSnap, DateSnap and BackSnap Stacks from Yabdab, the Content Fader Stack from DK Stacks, the PlayListr Stack from StackManiac, and the Jack Stack from Joe Workman. A couple of "How to..." tutorials on replacing an existing website and creating a mySQL database have been added, along with a couple of tutorials covering the excellent RapidSearch Pro plugin. Finally, a new series on the aMember 4 membership system was produced and is available to Grad School subscribers.
Coming Soon (Future Updates)Check back next week for more Foundation Theme tutorials!
