How to Start building your site
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.
