There are times, believe it or not, that you just need a basic web page (or site), and using WordPress is just getting in the way. Maybe you need to layout a table in HTML. Maybe you just need a splash page as a place holder. Regardless of the why, the need is clear and you need an app to make it happen.
Oh, sure, you can code by hand. You know how to code complex tables by hand and maybe toss in some in-line CSS too, right? Right, neither do I. That’s why I have a copy of RapidWeaver. Yeah I got it years ago (in an app bundle) and I’ve installed it, deleted it, and reinstalled it several times now (I’ve finally wised up and I’m not deleting it again). Why? Like I said above, sometimes you just need a solid WYSIWYG HTML editor—Create Powerful Websites With RapidWeaver 5: Build Beautiful Websites & Get Realmac’s Nobility Theme to Get You Started.
This deal is for a combo of RapidWeaver 5 (I only have v4), which includes a few site templates, and a copy of the Nobility template for RapidWeaver. The whole package is more than 50% off (which is cool) and gives you a solid tool to use to make a great looking page or two, or a whole site.
Although I’m a hardcore WordPress guy and I generally would build a site around it, I admit there are times when I need to do something like create a newsletter template or create a static page with a lot of elements. These tasks and WordPress, they just don’t get along well. These are tasks that even a straight code editor leaves most folks screaming (editing serious CSS or layouts in code alone isn’t for the faint of heart), which is where RapidWeaver comes in.
Before you click the “get it” button…here are a few key parts of RapidWeaver and the included Nobility theme that should convince you (if you still needed convincing):
- Code-Free Creation
RapidWeaver comes with 11 built-in page types – from blogs to sitemaps, photo albums to contact forms – so you can start work on every page in your site from the get-go. All without needing to know a line of code.
- Delicious Designs
Building a gorgeous site is simple with RapidWeaver thanks to more than 45 included themes – including six all-new themes for RapidWeaver 5 from world-renowned designers. Now you can choose a theme and get underway in seconds without having to worry about your site’s design.
- Publishing Perfection
Once your RapidWeaver site is ready to go live it’s ridiculously simple to get it online. With built-in support for FTP & SFTP uploads (used by almost every webhost around) you’ll be able to publish your site for the world to see in absolutely no time.
- Lightbox option for the built-in photo album
