The Stacks 3 series of tutorials now consists of a 10-part, nearly 2-hour series that explores most every detail of the plugin and its stacks. This latest updates includes an introduction for those new to stacks, a tutorial that covers the details of each built-in stack, instruction on the use of the Global Content feature, and thorough look at the text and image formatting tools available in Stacks 3.
The only Stacks 3 feature I’ve yet to cover is Stacks Cloud, a basic CMS (content management system) that is included with the plugin. I will have a tutorial covering Stacks Cloud available at the beginning of next week. I also plan to add a couple of other topics that aren’t specific to the Stacks plugin, but should prove to be useful as you work with Stacks.
RapidWeaver 6 and the Stacks 3 plugin form what I consider to be the foundation of website design with RapidWeaver. There is one other topic I believe should be included in that foundation, and that is responsive design — developing a website to be, as Google would say, “mobile-friendly.” RapidWeaver Classroom currently includes various tutorials that provide instruction on responsive design, but there is a need for a thorough series of tutorials that presents all of the information in a clear and concise manner. I plan to begin development of that series next week, and those tutorials will be released around the end of September or beginning of October. I am excited to bring this new and very important training to you all.
I hope you are enjoying Stacks 3, and if you haven’t yet upgraded then I can’t recommend it highly enough. Aside from the great new features, editing and saving your project has never been so fast thanks to the emphasis on speed in this new update.
Check back soon for more updates about the responsive design series!
Thanks for your support!
