SCOM0791 – RapidWeaver 8 Foundation – Part 2 – Preview


(SCO transition music) – [Todd] Hi, this is Todd Olthoff, and welcome to another
edition of ScreenCastsOnline. This week we will be doing part two in our foundation series
on the website design and publishing tool called RapidWeaver 8. If you haven’t had a
chance to view part one, you may wanna stop and
view that screencast first, as I will be building on the project that we started in that screencast. In this screencast we will continue to build out our photography website, and cover some of the
other tools that we didn’t get a chance to cover in
part one of this series. Like the Snippets panel,
building a sidebar, and how to work with third party Addons. We will also cover some of
the more advanced features like privacy settings and
search engine optimization, so that your site is fully searchable by search engines such as Google. So with that in mind,
let’s go ahead and launch our website project in RapidWeaver 8. [SCO transition ♪] Now before we start to edit our project, I wanna show you a new
feature that has been built in to RapidWeaver 8, and that’s
called UI State Restoration. Now what that does is allows
you to set your windows however you like in terms
of size and location. And then it remembers where you left that so that when you relaunch the application, it will put those windows
back exactly the way you had them so you
don’t have to resize them or reset everything up
every time you edit. So let me show you how that works. What I’m gonna do is just
show the Inspector panel here and we’re just going to
make it a floating window. And let’s just say I wanna shrink this up. I like it that size. Let’s say I’d like to put it right here. And then I’m gonna do
the same with resources. So there’s the resources
window and what we’re gonna do is just make it just like this. And let’s say this is my ideal editing situation right there. So what I’m going to do is let’s go ahead and quit RapidWeaver. And then we’re gonna go ahead and launch RapidWeaver again. And we’ll go ahead and
launch our photo site. And so there’s our site, everything is set and ready to go. You notice that it remembers
we’re on the portfolio page. And if I just come over here now and I add the floating window, notice it put it back exactly where I had it before. And let’s see if it does
the same with resources. Yep, there’s the resource window. So what’s nice about this
is that you can set up your favourite way to
edit and allow RapidWeaver to remember it so that when
you launch those windows or close them, so again if I close it, launch it again, it puts it back exactly where I had it before. That’s just a quick preview of one of this week’s
