Introduction
Ease of use, a large number of third party developers of themes, plugins &
stacks, and a community of loyal users are just some of the reasons why
RapidWeaver is one of the best website builders on the market for Apple
users.
While there are a few really good cms solutions available for RapidWeaver
(Armadillo and WebYep come to mind) there really hasn’t been a small
scale solution for users who just want to make a portion of there website
editable without a lot of “bells & whistles” ... until now.
The Kuler Edits stack was developed to let website developers add an
editable section to a website that their client can make edits to on their own
without having to own RapidWeaver or even a Mac.
Kuler Edits is simple and secure.
What the Kuler Edits Stack Is and Isn’t
The Kuler Edits stack IS NOT:
a full fledged CMS
a blogging platform
database driven stack
dependent on mySql
The Kuler Edits stack IS:
a simple and secure way for you make a section of your website
editable by you, a family member, or a client
stored on your server (all files are published when you publish your
RapidWeaver project)

How Is Content Stored
Content is saved and retrieved using php and the really awesome
Summernote WYSIWYG editor.
Images are converted to Base64 and stored in .txt format.
Where Is Content Stored
Content is stored in a .txt file on your server. This file will be located in your
site directory in a folder called “files” and will have a Stacks ID prefix.
Example:

Features
Secure: You add a username and password via the Stacks user
interface
Customizable: Change the text of all the buttons and labels
Safe: Hide (or disguise) the ‘edit’ button
Lightweight: The entire stack consists of only 14-15 files that get
published and these are minimized php, js, or css files.
Setup
Set up is very easy, even a newbie can do it.
STEP 1 - Getting Started
After you have purchased and downloaded the Kuler Edits stack you can
find it in your Stacks library by entering “Edits” in the search bar.
Once you have found the stack just drag and drop it onto your Stacks page.

STEP 2 - The User Interface
The Kuler Edits stacks has several user interface options. You should take
a few minutes and familiarize yourself with them and what they do.

Sign-in Credentials & Global
Site Title Label: This is the text that will be located on the Log-in
Page as well as the Edit page. You can enter anything here, but I
suggest entering the name of your website because it also serves as
a link back to the parent page.
Username: This is the pace that you create the username that your
client will use to login. You can use letters and or numbers here.
Password: This is the place where you create the password that the
client will use to login.
Return URL: The url of the page where you want the user to be
taken after they make their edits and click on “View Site”. Or when
they click on the Site Title.
Depending on how you have your site structure set-up you may have
to enter ../
or you may have to enter ../page_name.php
or you might even need to enter ../folder_name/page_name.php

Log-in Page
Username Label: The default setting for this is “Username” but
you can change this to say something else.
Password Label: The default setting for this is “Password” but
you can change this to say something else.
Login Button: Here you can change what the login button
says. For instance, you can make the button say “Sign-in” or
“Begin Editing” etc...
Cancel Button: You can change what the ‘Cancel” button says,
for instance, “Stop”.
Login Failure: This will be the message that the user will see if
they enter the wrong username and/or password. The default
text reads “Username/Password incorrect” but you can
change this to be whatever you want.
