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) until Kuler Edits came along there
really wasn't an easy way to make portions of your website editable from a
browser.
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)

What is different in version 2?
Version 2 of the Edits stack adds some new front facing features as well as
some under the hood enhancements.

Version 2
Result
Image storage
converted images to
base64 code and
your browser would
interpret the data and
display your image
actually uploads your
image to a folder on
your server and
references that image
using html instead of
base64 code
Much faster page
loads and less
spinning beach balls
when making edits.
Themes

Stacks 3 is required
for Edits 2
noindex
N/A
Added a "noindex"
meta tag to the sign-
in page to keep
Google from
displaying it in search
results
This is a good thing
…. you don’t want
your sign-in page to
be public.
Requirements?
Stacks 3 is required to use Edits 2.0. If you are unable to use Stacks 3
then you will need to continue to use Edits 1.2
How Is Content Stored
Content is saved and retrieved using php and the really awesome
Summernote WYSIWYG editor.
All of your content is stored and referenced in a .txt file that resides on your
server.
In Edits v.1 images were converted to Base64 and stored in .txt file on your
server. In Edits v. 2 images are uploaded to a folder on your server and are
referenced (or called) using an <img> tag.
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:
5
Whenever you add an Edits stack to your page the stack will create two
folders that will have the same name. Their name will be determined by the
unique id that the Stacks plugin gives each stack when it is added to a
page. BOTH of these folders are important. One folder stores the images
that the editor uses and the other stores the images that get displayed on
your webpage.

Features
Secure: You add a username and password via the Stacks user
interface
Customizable: Change the text of all the buttons and labels
Safe: You can have a button (icon) at the bottom of your content that
when clicked will take you to a "sign in" page to make edits, or you can
remove the icon completely and no one will know that you have an
editable section on your page.
Lightweight: The entire stack is lightweight and will not bog your system
down.
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.
