RapidWeaver

8.5.1
03 February 2020

Create template-based websites rapidly.

Overview

RapidWeaver is a next-generation Web design application to help you easily create professional-looking Web sites in minutes. No knowledge of complex code is required, RapidWeaver will take care of all that for you. RapidWeaver produces valid XHTML- and CSS-based websites.

One of the perks about using RapidWeaver is that it has a strong custom theme community. You can download themes and edit them from within RapidWeaver and the result is a pretty slick-looking website that takes very little effort.

RapidWeaver also has a lot of custom plug-ins. Some of them make it easier to edit images directly in RapidWeaver. Others make creating a site map a matter of a few clicks. The supportive community that surrounds RapidWeaver is really what makes this great app superior to other WYSIWYG website creation tools. Be sure to check out YourHead for some little tools to help spice up your website in RapidWeaver.

Rapidweaver just keeps getting better with each update. Those who are negative here are obviously not enjoying the added benefit of using Stacks with Foundation or Foundry. These magical additions are critical to getting serious development from Rapidweaver. They cost extra, but WELL worth the SMALL investment to easily achieve amazing sites. Purchasing extra Stacks to achieve a particular feature is just common sense. No web authoring app can provide everything out of the box to suit your desires. With Stacks you can add almost anything spectacular to complete a dazzling site. Rapidweaver with Stacks and Foundation or Foundry is the way to go.

What a joke that this application cannot open or import existing html files! And when copying the html code from a rather simple html file with nothing but three small tables into a new Rapidweaver project there is nothing but crap to be seen. Downloaded, installed, tried, deleted.

Rapidweaver 8.1 was issued 3. weeks ago. What is wrong with this site? Nearly everything on it is one or more versions behind.

I was considering this product, but reading comments here that so many additional plugins/addons need to be purchased to get it working right put me off. I'll keep looking until I find something fairly priced which doesn't have all these hidden costs. Considering either Sandvox or Everweb, not sure which produces the best looking sites. I already have Everweb so I can upgrade to the latest version, but if Sandvox is better maybe I'll go for that.

Just purchase foundation or foundry and with stacks and you are set. Our site has no templates and hundreds of pages really fast with reuse footers and navigation stuff the rest is free form. I can make pages very quickly. The Foundry or foundation come with all that is needed. If you need something more specialised the is always some plugins available.

Purchased to replace an iWEB. Boy Scout Site as we needed to migrate to Sierra and iWeb is not compatible (would not work on ours) Although I could have wished for an easier and more intuitive interface, the videos quickly gave me what I needed to replace a multi paged and detailed website entirely in a few hours. The new site is ALMOST exactly what we wanted and we haven't even begun to learn RapidWeaver. Once we learn more I believe we will be able to manipulate the spaces more precisely and be even more happy with the product. Right now, Very pleased to replace the iWeb site so easily.

I used Rapidweaver for many years, then came paid upgrades, plugin creators out of business and I realised I had been had...here was an app purporting to create websites with ease that actually I needed more paid plugins and a decent paid theme to create a reasonable site. Is that really the future of simple website building. so I tried Sandvox, and a weight was lifted from my shoulders.

I've used Rapidweaver for a few years now and it does allow me to produce a good looking website, after spending big on themes, stacks and plugins, but site building takes forever due to serious performance issues when using Stacks, which is why I've started using Blocs and expect to dump Rapidweaver entirely before long.

In addition to the slow speeds, Rapidweaver also has never-ending problems in areas like FTP, so the $$ cost of ownership with Rapidweaver is annoying, but the enduring bugs and loss of time make it untenable.
