March 28, 2014 Filed in: Video Release
Overview of New UpdatesI have added two new tutorials to the Classroom curriculum this week. The PaySnap Stacks tutorial discusses a great e-commerce solution, and the Content Fader tutorial demonstrates a very cool effect for your page's content.

Details of New UpdatesThe PaySnap 2 Stacks is a collection of stacks from Yabdab -- the developers of the popular CartLoom e-commerce service. These stacks create an excellent shopping cart experience for your customers -- much like CartLoom -- but everything is configured directly through your RapidWeaver project in the Stacks 2 plugin, and checkout is handled through a basic PayPal account. These stacks provide a lot of flexibility, including: flexible price, shipping and tax handling, product options (drop-down, radio button, check boxes), quantity input, lightboxed product details, and highly customizable buttons. If you are going to be selling products through your website then I highly recommend you consider the PaySnap 2 stacks. This new tutorial is located under the Add-Ons > E-Commerce section of tutorials.
The other new tutorial covers the Content Fader Stack, and it's our first tutorial on a product from DK Stacks -- a fairly new developer in the RapidWeaver community. Dominic (DK Stacks) is already producing some outstanding stacks, so I am excited to be introducing them to you in the coming weeks. Content Fader does exactly what it sounds like it should -- it fades content on your pages as you scroll past it. This is a trendy effect that you may have seen on other websites. Content Fader makes it very easy to accomplish, and it can leave a great impression on your website's visitors, especially if you are in some kind of design industry where visual presentation is important. This new tutorial is located under the Add-Ons > Miscellaneous section of tutorials.
In Case You Missed It (Recent Updates)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.
Last week I released two tutorials: one covering the customization of banners or slideshows in the header of 3rd-party RapidWeaver themes, and the other discussing a method of embedding responsive YouTube videos. Click here to learn more about these two recent tutorials.
Coming Soon (Future Updates)Next week will see more new stacks tutorials from Yabdab and DK Stacks. I have a number of other Stack Elements tutorials planned, as well as new content for the SEO section and some exciting new training for the Grad School curriculum in the works for release soon. Check back next week for more details.
Thanks for your support!
