Foundation for RW gets its biggest update yet!

Now that Stacks 3 has dropped, everyone finally can get access to the much anticipated Foundation for RapidWeaver v1.5 update. This update has even blown me away with how powerful it is. The above video reviews all of the nitty gritty details. But here is a short list of some of the major features. 

  • 6 new color swatches are available in Site Styles to be used across all of your Foundation elements. 
  • Tons of more advanced settings for power hungry users
  • Columns can now go the full width of the browser
  • You can customize paragraph sizing. You finally overcame my resistance!
  • Overhaul of about half of the Foundation stack suite. 
  • Global templates have been retired in favor of Stacks 3 partials. They are so amazeballs!
  • Aria Accessibility implemented across all components
  • New Structure stack to help with adding accessibility and structured data to your content. 
  • New SEO Helper stack makes it easy to add all of the meta tags that you want to your webpages. 

I am super excited about the possibilities that this update brings to you. I cannot wait to hear how it helps improve your webpages and business. 

Stacks 3 is Finally Here

I am so excited that Stacks 3 has finally launched. It has a ton of amazing new features that will revolutionize the way that we build websites. There are so many new features in Stacks 3. Here is a short list of my favorites:

  • New modern Ui that is both fast and flexible
  • Partials are so amazeballs
  • New Child-of stacks
  • Awesome new stacks settings controls
  • jQuery and Font Awesome are built-in
  • So much more

I am very happy to present Page Safe to you. This stack provides and simple and secure way to password protect pages on your RapidWeaver website. Plus its probably has the most sexy login screen you have ever seen!
