Banner ImagesThe BANX theme takes advantage of the new Banner Image option in RW7. The theme comes with one banner photo (a photo of a red tulip), but you can replace it with your own image. How to do that?
Drag your image into the ‘Override Site Banner’ area in the Page-Inspector > General Settings. See image below:
Slideshows and VideosThe RW7 Banner Image option is only possible with RW7, but don’t worry: when you use RW6 you can add a banner too, or a slideshow or even a video (Youtube, Vimeo, HTML5, read the manual Chapter 6).
SidebarThere are 3 options for the sidebar: left (default), right or hide. When you have the sidebar enabled, it shows always up above the content on your mobile (iPad, iPhone).
ExtracontentExtraContent allows you to add more content then RapidWeaver typically allows. There is an extra content snippet in the download file, but with a Stacks page it's much easier to use the free ExtraContent stack or this ExtraContent Plus stack. Learn more about Extra Content here.
There are 4 ExtraContent areas in this theme:
EC1 is on the banner image, slideshow or video. Use this area for some text lines, a date or time script or whatever. You can set a breakpoint in the Theme Styles: below this breakpoint the EC1 will be displaced a s block below the banner.
EC2 is between the content and the footer.
EC3 is below in the sidebar. For example when you would like to have a stack in the sidebar. See this example.
EC4 is hidden by default. You can use this area for a banner, slideshow or video when you don’t use the built-in RW7 banner (read Manual about this).
FontsThe BANX theme comes with a lot of fonts. 21 Webfonts to choose from (independently for the Title/Slogan/Menu/ExtraContent1 and Content.
WidthIn the Theme Styles you can choose between different container widths (900px, 1000px, 11px, 1200px and auto).
Scroll to Top ButtonA Scroll-to-Top Button (any color is possible) fades in at the bottom right (or optional bottom center) on your page when you scroll down. You can hide it in the Theme Styles, or only show it on your mobile.
Responsive Design and Browsers Support
The traditional fixed width design doesn't work any more. Web design needs to be adaptive. The layout needs to be automatically adjusted to fit all display resolution and devices.
Narrow your browser with this page, or check it on your iPhone/iPad/Android device. Or have a look here.
A website created with this theme will work in all modern browsers and on your tablet or smartphone.
Waterfall enabledEasy, automatic theme updating with the plugin Waterfall for RapidWeaver®.
The hassle of manually updating themes is a pain point every RapidWeaver user has run into as some point. Waterfall is your effortless theme management tool, specifically designed to help save you time and prevent the headaches all too often associated with theme updating.
LogoThe Logo and the Title have a link with the index.html page of your website. By default the logo is above the Title (example). Optional you can put it in an ExtraContent area.
FontAwesomeWith Font Awesome you have over 500 icons at your disposal, in any color and any size you like. And they are completely free for commercial use.
SearchboxThis theme provides built-in support for Nimblehost's RapidSearch plugin (this plugin is not included). You can put a Searchbox (you'll need the RapidSearch plugin for this) in the ExtraContent or somewhere else (sidebar, content, footer). Read the Manual how to use the search box. Example.
