Veteran RapidWeaver theme designer, Adam Shiver of Elixir Graphics, is the latest to join the ranks of developers offering ExtraContent enabled themes. Yesterday, Elixir Graphics announce their new Factory Theme, a polished, jQuery ready theme sporting 2 ExtraContent areas; one inside the header space to naturally augment your header images and one in the footer.
Factory boasts a number of other features as well… plenty of headers and header badges, various menu styles, background choices and so much more. Head over to Elixir Graphics and have a peek at his latest hi-tech creation.
Late last week the RapidWeaver community was treated to the arrival of two new RapidWeaver themes enabled with ExtraContent — WeaverThemes Imagine and RWT’s Slider. Both themes offer a very different approach to the ExtraContent content concept and their developers are to be commended for thinking outside the box.

RWT’s Slider takes another innovative approach to ExtraContent in the form of a sliding banner. We’ve all seen them before but propagating them with content has always been a hassle. RWT has taken the ugly out of coding a sliding banner and made it ExtraContent easy. It can now be as simple as adding text to any page or sidebar that allows for styled content.

The ExtraContent Developer SDK has been updated to r1.3. This update improves compatibility with end user content that includes script blocks or script calls. This would include those who are using Pluskit’s @import(()) rule to pull in YourHead’s Collage 2 or Kwix pages. This should also improve FireFox support for the same issue.
I would consider the change major enough to warrant updating your themes with this new version as soon as you have done your own complete and comprehensive testing. The improved compatibility will make many end users happy.
Also in this update we have included the latest jQuery build, v1.3.2, and have updated or added a few of the snippets. We have also included a new documents folder with weblocs to all of the necessary tutorials and manual.
