Details of New UpdatesThis update brings a couple of weeks' worth of tutorials to the Foundation series. Now at a total of 16 videos, this series on the Foundation Theme is approaching completion, and there is currently enough information to get you well on your way to building websites with this excellent theme.
The first new tutorial in this update covers the use of Foundation's Visibility Stack to show and/or hide content based on the device being used to view the website. The Visibility Stack can be very useful and something every Foundation user should understand, so this tutorial is highly recommended.
The following two tutorials in this update focus on the variety of Dynamic Layout stacks that are available for Foundation. These stacks include: Orbit Slider, Reveal Lightbox, Tabs, Accordion, Dropdown, Alerts and Clearing Gallery. These stacks offer tremendous functionality and I highly recommend taking the time to learn how they can be used.
Finally, the fourth tutorial covers the creation of forms in Foundation. Foundation's Starter Pack and Add-On Pack 1 include a number of stacks that can be used to create powerful, flexible forms on your website. Most every website needs at least a contact form, so be sure to check out this tutorial as well.
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 few 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)We are nearing completion of the Foundation tutorial series, so check back next week for some of the final Foundation tutorials.
