[prMac.com] Kitchener, Ontario Canada - RapidWeaver theme developer seyDoggy moves RapidWeaver theme development forward with Flavorite Ultimate, a smart theme that harnesses the power of today's web without sacrificing the ease of use that RapidWeaver has always been known for.
"As theme developers, we have been limited in what we can offer in our products," says seyDoggy lead developer, Adam Merrifield. "It's been a juggling act to get a certain number of options to cascade in just the right flow. With our new approach in Flavorite, we aim to break down those barriers. You can create a slideshow from your custom headers with the click of a button - no code required (IE8 ). Turn rounded corners on or off with ease. Enjoy your content, sidebar, ExtraContent - even individual blog posts - all wrapped in their own, stand-alone boxes."
Best of all, Flavorite looks and acts the same as any other seyDoggy RapidWeaver theme. It just works a little differently - intelligently! In fact, the advanced features in Flavorite are actually aware of each other and their standard feature counterparts.
"A number of years ago, RapidWeaver 3.2 introduced theme options - a great advance in template based web design - but those options were more or less limited to CSS, notoriously lacking the dependencies of language that allow for more dynamic capabilities," explains Merrifield, "Flavorite now adds some smarts to those options, opening up a new world of possibility."
All of Flavorite's intelligent features are included at no expense to the variety of other great and flexible features like layout width, header heights, variable width sidebar, and a myriad of font options. As a seyDoggy Ultimate theme, Flavorite comes fully loaded with powerful features, including a built in slideshow, 2 tier split navigation, rounded corners, ExtraContent, and a variety of others:
* selectable slideshow
* 4 ExtraContent areas
* RWmultitool ready
* 10 customizable headers
* header height adjustment
* 2 footer modes
* 2 tier, split navigation
* sidebar width
* sidebar positioning
* comprehensive color control
* width control
* font size, style and line height control
Flavorite is one of many RapidWeaver themes enabled with the popular ExtraContent feature, an open source collaborative technology that allows usable content spaces in RapidWeaver (e.g. built-in blog pages, photo albums, Flash slideshows, or iFrame pages) to be extended beyond what the application would normally allow, offering the user additional usable space and, along with that, a wide variety of new opportunities for enhanced creative expression. With ExtraContent, it is now possible to add a personal touch to previously unreachable areas of a page, by adding a lifestream (Twitter, LastFM, Delicious, etc.) below a blog page, adding a Web 2.0 footer to a site's file sharing page, or performing another of the many potential modifications.
* Mac OS X Version 10.4.11 Tiger, 10.5.2 Leopard or 10.6.x Snow Leopard
* Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
* RapidWeaver 3.6.7 or RapidWeaver 4.x
* RWmultitool Lite Optional
