FOR RAPIDWEAVER + STACKS
Created with way too much attention to detail, our Projects enable RapidWeaver users to concentrate on the content, and not get bogged down in the design and mechanics of building a website, using RapidWeaver + Stacks as your website builder. Since 2016 we have created and nurtured over 30 Projects & Templates and developed 25 stacks, so it is fair to say that we understand our craft.
Using our ready to go RapidWeaver Projects and Templates, web builders can begin immediately, with a fully configured and tested website, ready for you to tweak and add your own text and images. Alternatively, you can just copy and paste our proven template layouts into your own Rapidweaver project files, to get up and running quickly. Avoid the blank page design syndrome and explore our Projects now to kick start your next website.
Webdeersign Projects are RapidWeaver templates, aimed at anyone from professional web designers and web builders to creative design agencies, to keen RapidWeaver Stacks users. Note that the Projects require SOURCE, Foundry or Foundation and Stacks. Individual requirements and features may vary so check details for the full details. These are complete RW Projects that are ready to go live or you can use them to cherry pick the parts you want, to paste into your own designs. In addition we are here to provide support if you need it.

If you need help please make sure that you have done the following:
If you get a message saying you have a missing stack, then you have not installed the required stack detailed in the README file.
If the Zipped download file does not Unzip / Uncompress in your specific MacOS system, then use a 3rd party free App such as Stuffit, Winzip, etc.. This is because the MacOS Uncompress App can be problematic.
IMPORTANT - Please note that beta versions of MacOS, RapidWeaver or Stacks are not supported
Feel free to ask questions on the RW4ALL forum or just email us for a quick response.
The Projects and Templates are delivered as rw7 project files than can be read into RapidWeaver 8. All images, icons and local fonts are also included.
Various (BWD) & (S4S) free stacks are required in some Projects and these are detailed in the Product descriptions. Note that in the Foundation & some Foundry Projects, there is extensive use of BWD (Big White Duck) stacks which are free to download and use. However, Andrew at BWD would appreciate a donation via his "Buy me a coffee" system . Although Andrew doesn't charge for his amazing stacks he has high overheads just to support what he does so well, so please do the right thing.
The Projects are ideal for:
Experienced RapidWeaver Stacks users looking for layout and design inspiration and fast access to a completed website. Just cherry pick the layouts you want from our templates, and you will save many hours of layout development and testing.
Design Agencies and Professional Web Designers with Stacks experience looking to increase their productivity to deliver the highest design quality to clients in the shortest time. The Projects can act as a library of plug and play layouts and designs.
New RapidWeaver Stacks users looking to move away from themes and willing to learn the secrets of building with a "do what ever you want" framework instead of a fixed layout theme. You will however, need to invest some time learning how to use Stacks.
There is a learning curve and our advice would definitely be to use SOURCE as your framework, for many reasons, but one of the most important reasons is that you only need to learn how to use a handful of stacks to do almost everything. A good place to start would be either with one of our FREE SOURCE Projects or the SOURCE RapidWeaver Academy and use them to learn how to put together a great looking website.
SOURCE was released in Autumn 2019 and became a game changer for RapidWeaver with Stacks. SOURCE introduced a speed in edit and preview mode that had never been experienced before and gave RapidWeaver a new lease of life. It has the most powerful layout system (CSS Grid) available using stacks, and is essentially all done with just a handful of stacks. With SOURCE we can now build any layout we want, in the easiest way possible in RapidWeaver, and these SOURCE sites will be simpler to fine tune and debug, because of the clever way it has been implemented.
The Webdeersign SOURCE based Projects are by far the easiest of our Projects to learn and use.
This site was built entirely using SOURCE and includes many layouts that would not be possible to build using RapidWeaver with any other framework, without resorting to writing code.
If using Elixir Foundry, you will need:
Foundry original or Foundry2, and in some cases, the additional Foundry Potion Pack
See individual project requirements.
The Foundry Projects are created in Foundry which are comparible with Foundry2.
If using Foundation, i.e. the original version first released in 2015, then you will need:
Note that RapidWeaver Foundation F6 or F6 is NOT supported
Please note that RapidWeaver Foundation F6 is NOT supported.
The Templates were created to allow RapidWeaver Stacks users to build powerful websites without having to go to the expense of buying into a "Framework" and additional stacks, costing $100's. The Template low cost solution, was perfect for enabling charities, small organisations and individuals. However, since the free SOURCE was released, using SOURCE has become a significantly better solution and it was a good time to retire the Templates. Some Templates may get revived and rebuilt in SOURCE.
The first Webdeersign Projects were good solutions when released, but as time goes forward, there are now better and easier ways to build these type of layouts using SOURCE without the need for additional stacks.
The PADDYstacks were created to fill the need to allow better layouts to be created that were not possible using Foundry or Foundation. Again, today, these layouts can now be built using SOURCE without the need for additional stacks, and have been retired.
Existing customers of retired Templates, PADDY stacks or Projects, can always log into their PADDLE account and re-download their purchases.
The price you see, is the price you pay in US Dollars.
If you are in the EU or other country that requires an additional tax, the correct VAT or tax will be paid to your country of origin, by Paddle who deduct this from what you pay, and then pay the VAT to your country every 3 months. We receive the purchase price less the tax paid and of course an additional fee to handle this, plus an additional per transaction fee and also a monthly fee is also charged to us.
Note - this is why we use Paddle, and while they are not perfect, they look after the important payment of VAT.
This website was created using RapidWeaver with Stacks, entirely using SOURCE stacks with layouts and elements taken from various Webdeersign SOURCE Projects. Parts of the SOURCE Projects have been selected and then cut and pasted into this site, and the colours and text adjusted for this site. This is the beauty of the Project approach, in that you can cherry pick what you want and then paste these pre built layouts, into your designs.
The Projects and Retired Projects pages, both use Poster2 from inStacks with the exact Poster2 configuration from the SOURCE Project24, to display, what is essentially, a complex product display system that loads super quickly on any device. The system scales easily, effectively without a number of products limit and as new Projects are created, these are easy to add and modify. BTW Poster takes care of the SEO Meta tags and produces "tidy" URLs to each Project "page". What you see on the Projects and Retired Projects pages is all SOURCE but the text and images is all fed by Poster2 which creates a unique page for each Project.
Many of the positioning techniques used in Projects 25, Projects 21 & also Project 20 were used, such as the main winged logo and laurel leaves positioned around the MacAir image. Also the navigation detailed in the free SOURCE Halloween Project is used for the navigation on this site using the simple to use SOURCE Navigation stack.
The Mailchimp sign-up form in the footer, is just the Mailchimp Classic form code available to download pre-configures and free, pasted into a Source Coder stack and styled to match the site design and the Source buttons are used for the Paddle Buy buttons.
The quote slider used is the STH Splider stack, although this can be built with just SOURCE stacks as shown in this SOURCE Splider Tutorial. We also sneaked in the super lightweight FAQ Toggle Accordian stack included with Projects 25.
This site is also used as a live test bed for future ideas and layouts, so if something looks out of place, just refresh your browser cache or open in a new Private window to see the latest version.
