Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does This Theme Work With The Stacks Plugin From Yourhead?

Absolutely! In fact most of the pages in this demo site are Stacks pages

2. Will This Theme Work With IE8?

While this theme was built with IE9+ in mind it does have graceful fallbacks for IE8. Rounded corners will be squared in IE8, but the theme works pretty well in IE8.

3. What Version Of jQuery Does This Theme Use?

This theme was built on top f the jQyery 1.9.1 javascript library.

4. What Dimensions Should I Make My Custom Header (Banner)?

You should make sure that your custom header image is 1280 px wide. You can make the height to your own likeing.

This theme includes 2 snippets that will make it easy for you to add a slideshow or a header image. All you need to do is drag and drop the snipett into your sidebar (from the Page Inspector) and then add your image(s) to your "Resources" folder. Just in case you can not find your snippets then you can copy and paste the snippets below:

Slideshow Snippet

<div class="myslider">
	<img src="resources/big_slider1.jpg" alt="">
	<img src="resources/big_slider2.jpg" alt="">
	<img src="resources/big_slider3.jpg" alt="">
</div>

Just be sure to replace the name of the image from the snippet above to the name of your slider image. ALSO Your slideshow images need to measure 1280 pixels wide.

10. How Do I Acheive 3 Columns Like On The Home Page Of THis Demo?

You can achieve the 3 column effect by using some html to create your columns. Try copying and pasting the snippet below (Its the exact one that I used in this demo) and changing some of the text.

<h2>This Is A RapidContent5 area</h2>
<p>If you can see this text then you know that the demo project is working just fine.</p>
<div class="row row-fluid">
	<div class="span4">
<h3>EC & RC Makes The Impossible Possible</h3>
	<p>RapidWeaver comes with some really awesome page styles built right in, however some of the page styles are sort of "one trick wonders". </p><p>For instance the Contact page does a good job at creating a contact page, but doesnt allow you to insert content above or below the form. Well, ExtraContent and RapidContent makes it possible.</p>
			
	</div>
	<div class="span4">
	<h3>Don't Stop There ...</h3>
	<p>Whether its the Photo Album page, Movie Album page, or the File Sharing page adding content above or below the content areas was either impossible or very difficult. With either ExtraContent or RapidContent, you can place content nearly anywhere you like!</p><p>The <strong>Phlatt(r)</strong> theme includes 4 ExtraContent areas and 4 RapidContent areas.</p>
			
	</div>
	<div class="span4"><h3>RapidContent, A Cousin To ExtraContent</h3>
	<p>While most of the RapidWeaver community is already familiar with ExtraContent you are likely unfamiliar with RapidContent. The Phlatt(r) theme is the first theme to introduce this new way of adding static content to muliple pages similar to the way widgets work in Wordpress.</p>
	<p><a class="btn" href="#">View details »</a></p>
	</div>
