Not sure how we missed this one back on February 6th, but it looks like Gary at RapidWeaverThemes.com unveiled a brand new theme to the RapidWeaver forums called Mello. Mellow appears to have 4 ExtraContent areas, one in the header, one in the sidebar, one below the content and one in the footer area.
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.
Earlier this week, Henk Vrieselaar released another addition to the ExtraContent enabled theme field with his latest release, Magazine. Sporting what looks like two ExtraContent areas and a metric butt-load of other options, Magazine looks like it’s packed and ready for action.
We haven’t seen any screen casts from Henk yet, but if we do you can be sure they will get posted here.
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.
seyDoggy launches ExtraContent.info, a community based site designed to help promote the usage of ExtraContent in content management systems. We hope to be able to share many tutorials, tips and tricks when using ExtraContent.
