Details of New UpdatesIf you've been following the recent updates here at RapidWeaver Classroom then you know I've been producing a series of tutorials on the excellent Foundation Theme from Joe Workman. This week brings two more tutorials to the series, for a total of 12 videos at about 2.5 hours of training.
The first of these two videos covers the basics of content layout in Foundation. A number of Foundation stacks are discussed in this video, and it is a must-see tutorial for anyone working with Foundation.
The second tutorial covers some more advanced layout options -- Offset and Source Order -- for the Foundation columns stacks. Foundation offers so much control over the layout of content from one device to the next, and this tutorial provides another demonstration of the flexibility of this theme and its stacks.
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 have covered a lot of ground in these 12 videos so far, but there are still some more topics to come, so check back within the week for more new updates!
