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.
For the full list of features, visit the WeaverThemes.
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.

Some time ago, Gary at RWT released a theme, H3, that gave users a way to have a truly usable 3 column layout in RapidWeaver. The manner in which is was done was a little complex to the uninitiated though. Since the arrival of ExtraContent, however, it only makes sense that Gary would update H3 to utilize ExtraContent to propagate this 3 column and that’s exactly what he did.
You can check out the new H3 here, and take a look at the tutorial movies. Take an especially close look at this movie, which demonstrates how you can use ExtraContent to make a search bar in your sites header.
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.
