Creami3 carries on Creamy’s great heritage of stunning looks and couples it with more power than even Creamux could dream of. With the new smart navigation and smart layout abilities, almost any look is possible with Creami3. With the ability to detect what options you are using and which ones you are not, Creami3 intelligently sets up the best layout for you — rounding corners when they need to be and displaying ExtraContent when it’s present, for example.
Creami3 is packed with many great features like 6 ExtraContent areas, built in slide show with 20 customizable banners, variable size rounded corners, many widths to choose from, sidebar width and positioning and a great selection of typographical control. But it’s the intelligent features you don’t see that are Creami3′s greatest strength.
If you watched the last movie, we introduced you to the ExtraContent Stack, an addition for your YourHead Stacks Library. In this movie we are showing you how to harness the power of Stacks, Pluskit and the ExtraContent Stack to create a virtual library of prebuilt ExtraContent Stacks that you can pull into any page, repeatedly, using Pluskit’s @import(()) rule.

With all the exciting news yesterday about our the ExtraContent Stacks Plugin that you can add to your Stacks Library, we just couldn’t wait to show you it in action. There is too much good stuff for just one movie though this is the first in what will likely become a 2 or 3 part series. Enjoy!
In this screen cast we are going to give a quick introduction to the ExtraContent Stacks plugin, so before you start, you are going to need Stack from YourHead Software and the free ExtraContent Stacks Plugin.

Yesterday, Robbie White launched his latest foray into RapidWeaver theme development with an ambitious theme, Falcon Pro, that sports not only ExtraContent, but a slew of other features as well. One note worth mentioning here is his innovative use of the ExtraContent method to create custom headers for your projects, with a little help from YourHead Blocks and Loghound Pluskit.
When you release a new technology or a different way of doing things there will always be those who embrace it and those who balk at it. One thing that helps ensure a higher proportion of the former to the latter is educating the masses as best you can.
This is one such example. In previous movies we’ve talked about all of the REALLY cool things you can do, hoping that the innate RapidWeaver functions abilities would have been obvious. In some respects, we were wrong in that assumption so I am taking this opportunity to back it up a notch, go back to RapidWeaver basics and show you that you can use an ExtraContent enabled theme just as you would any other. In addition, we show you that it doesn’t take a coding wizard to employ the ExtraContent features.
Just watch and see. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is. There is also a large version of this movie if you prefer.
With the release of the newest seyDoggy theme, Creamux, seyDoggy has launched this new tutorial movie.

Ryan Smith over at RapidWeaver Classroom was awesome enough to make a VERY detailed movie about many aspects of the seyDoggy Gotem theme and ExtraContent. Ryan does an incredibly thorough and level headed job of outlining each ExtraContent area, some nifty tricks with Pluskit from Loghound.com, attaching images with assets and much more.
You might also notice a little promotional deal at the movies intro. You would be wise to take advantage of that kind of offer.
Today seyDoggy released an update to their Gotem theme, adding one more ExtraContent to allow the insertion of text into the “traditional” sidebar area.
There was numerous requests for the ability for users to add content in their RapidWeaver sites to the “traditional” sidebar area in our Gotem theme.
By default, content added to the sidebar field in RapidWeaver gets added to the area just beside the header image. With the new third ExtraContent area you can now add sidebar content to it’s traditional location along side the main content area.
This tutorial covers how to utilize the new ExtraContent area to get text into the traditional sidebar location.
