Layout
The ELITE RapidWeaver* theme has a drop down menu with sublevels. Down- and right arrows show the menu-items with a sublevel for clear navigation through your website.
*RapidWeaver® is a Registered Trademark of Realmac Software Limited

Header Images (banners) or Slideshows
Built-in are 7 different header images. But you can use your own images too of course! Or a slideshow with a slideshow stack or with the Weaverpix plugin. Read the manual how to do this.

Extracontent
ExtraContent allows you to add more content then RapidWeaver typically allows. There’s one ExtraContent area at the top of the page, great for adding your social icons, date, time or whatever. There is an extra content snippet in the download file, but with a Stacks2 page it's much easier to use the free ExtraContent stack or this ExtraContent Plus stack. Learn more about Extra Content here.

Responsive Design
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.

Waterfall enabled
Easy, automatic theme updating with the plugin Waterfall for both RapidWeaver® 5 & 6.
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.

   Logo
The Logo and the Title have a link with the index.html page of your website. By default the logo is above the Title (example).

FontAwesome
With 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.

Browsers Support
A website created with this theme will work in all modern browsers and on your tablet or smartphone.

   Fluid images
Built-in is an option to make your images fluid, whether they are in the content or in the sidebar. Very simple. Only add the text flexible in the input field of the Alt Tag in the Media Inspector. Read the Manual about this.

   EliteHack Stack
With the EliteHack Stack by Marathia Web Design, you can transform the submenu items of this theme into tooltips. This limits your site to a single level menu of course, but when you only need one level, it’s a nice feature to show additional information with each menu item. A demo of the use of this stack can be found here.
Visit the EliteHack Stack product page for more information.
This is a demo page with this stack.

   Searchbox
This theme provides built-in support for Nimblehost's RapidSearch plugin (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.

   SUPPORT
This theme has many different Theme Styles and Color Options, don’t forget the Miscellaneous part.
Before sending me questions, please try all options, so you can see what opportunities this theme provides. Almost every day new stacks are released and I haven't test them all. So I cannot guarantee that every stack will work.
Find the stack you’re looking for fast with RapidWeaver Central.

The Manual is very detailed. Read this very carefully before you send me questions. If your troubles are not exclusive to my theme or if you think the issue might be a software concern, please do a search on the Realmac Software forum first.

But you can also post your questions on the Realmac Software forums and I am sure that I or one of the folks there will help straighten you out enough.
