[prMac.com] Kitchener, Ontario Canada - RapidWeaver theme developer seyDoggy today is excited to release Lights2 Pro RapidWeaver, a completely rebuilt successor to the extremely popular Lights theme originally created by Med Designs' Scott Williams. Since shutting down their RapidWeaver theme operations in late 2008, Med Designs has exclusively trusted seyDoggy Web and Graphic Design for their theme support and distribution. seyDesign is proud to be the sole distributor of the entire Med Designs line, and successfully upgraded all Med Designs themes to RapidWeaver 4 compatibility, bolstering them wherever possible with extra features.
"One of the things that drew me to the Scott [Williams] Med Designs theme library was the original Lights theme" says seyDoggy Lead Developer Adam Merrifield. "When Med Designs closed up shop I knew that the Lights theme had to live on. It's timeless, elegant, and open to so many possibilities."
Never one to let a great RapidWeaver theme die, seyDoggy would like to introduce the totally rebuilt Lights2 Pro. Lights2 is a polished, highly flexible theme capable of meeting a wide variety of design needs, from blogs to photo albums and everything in between. One of seyDoggy's Pro themes (mid-grade offerings that typically come with a comprehensive set of features, while also maintaining a certain ease of use), Lights2 Pro offers users a wide variety of easy-to-use features, including:
* 10 customizable headers
* Header height adjustment
* RWmultitool ready
* Comprehensive color control
* Width control
* Sidebar width and positioning adjustment
Lights2, seyDoggy's 27th commercially available theme, is also the first Pro theme 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 or 10.5.2 Leopard
* Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
* RapidWeaver 3.6.7 or RapidWeaver 4.x
* RWmultitool Lite Optional
Pricing and Availability:
Lights2 Pro is available now for $16.49 CAD at seyDoggy's online RapidWeaver theme store.
