How to Start build­ing your site

Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Pick a pro­ject

RapidWeaver’s wel­come screen pro­vides quick ac­cess to the most com­mon tasks you’ll per­form in the app. In this case we’re start­ing from scratch, so we’ll pick a tem­plate un­der Ex­am­ples on the right. Let’s go for Tesla.

2 Say hello

RapidWeaver cre­ates a ba­sic web­site that you can then edit. The list of the site’s pages is at the top of the side­bar, while the op­tions be­low that and in the main pane are where the con­tent is lo­cated. We’ll re­place that soon.

3 See your site

RapidWeaver isn’t a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) ed­i­tor; it keeps edit­ing dis­trac­tion-free and gen­er­ates a pre­view as re­quired. To see what the Tesla theme looks like, click Pre­view near the top of the win­dow.

4 Make your mark

Don’t worry about pho­tos and colours – we’ll change those things later. For now, let’s re­name the site’s pages. Click Edit at the top of the win­dow, dou­ble-click on a page name in the side­bar, then type a new name for it.

5 Change global set­tings

Some con­tent, such as the site ti­tle, is set once and then au­to­mat­i­cally used through­out the site. To al­ter it, click Gen­eral un­der Set­tings in the side­bar and set a ti­tle to the right. You can change other place­holder text here, too.

6 Re­move the over­rides

Click Pre­view. No­tice the slo­gan from the Set­tings page isn’t used; some sam­ple pages over­ride things. Open the in­spec­tor, click the left­most icon at the top of it, then clear the rel­e­vant box un­der Over­ride De­fault Set­tings.
