For us Simplicity means to reduce in scope or complexity, make more intelligible, and save time, instead of hassle. Why not provide our clients the time to do only the fun stuff, and reach a good looking site with only a few clicks?

Over the past few months there has been an explosion of new themes and theme updates that are all boasting ExtraContent. It’s an exciting time in the world of RapidWeaver themes as the possibilities become seemingly endless.
ExtraContent was first introduced in December of 2008 and since then dozens upon dozens of themes have cropped up using the technology. Here are just a few that have come out in recent months.
Henk has become a veritable champion of ExtraContent, pushing the limits of the his themes and the technology with release after release of ExtraContent enabled themes. Exposure has 3 EC areas, on the header above the title/slogan, between the content and the footer and below the footer. Exposure has a jquery fading dropdownmenu. Down- and Right-Arrows show the menu-items with sublevels for clear navigation through your website. When opening a page the menu slides down with a fading effect. You can disable the sliding in the Theme Styles.

This has been a heck of a few weeks for ExtraContent enabled themes. We’ve just seen the release of new themes from WeaverThemes and RWT, and now we have 3 more new ExtraContent themes from MultiThemes, ThemeFlood and Henk Vrieselaar.
Henk has been a big advocate for ExtraContent themes and has managed to add ExtraContent in just about every theme he has released in the last 6 months. STALKER, Henk’s latest RapidWeaver theme, has 4 ExtraContent areas that allow the user to add more content then RapidWeaver typically allows — EC1, above the Menu. You can use this area for some textlines or your logo. With a CSS code you can fill this area with any image cor colour — EC2, below the Menu. This area floats together with the menu and can be filled with text, images or a logo. — EC3, above the Footer. — EC4, below the Footer.
