RapidWeaver plug-in; divide Web content into blocks.

Overview

Blocks is a plugin for RapidWeaver. It allows you to place blocks of text, graphics, and even raw HTML onto your page wherever you like. Drag blocks around, resize them, and even overlap content. All in a plugin that is as easy to use as RapidWeaver itself.

Blocks 3.0 brings great ways to reuse your own content (library blocks), your own layout (master pages), your own pages (library pages), and even content from other page types (Page Blocks). What more can we do? We can make everything smarter. Smart Blocks allow you to add special tags to your code that can connect to the properties of your blocks or even add GUI controls to your layout.

What's new in Blocks

Version 3.5.2:
  • Fixed intermittent vanishing white text when using Mojave Dark Mode.
  • Text editing in Mojave Dark Mode is no longer white text on white background.
  • Notarize for use on Catalina
  • Improved compatibility with RapidWeaver 8

This is an amazing plugin for RapidWeaver! A real “must have.” It allows you to move your content items around by dragging and dropping... and even a little push here, and slide there. Try the demo, I bet within a day you'll buy it!

That's fantastic. It's like transforming RapidWeaver into a different, more powerful application, where you can freely "paint" your page. With the same ease of use of RapidWeaver. A must have.

Excellent Plugin for Rapidweaver. The new auto update feature works great. A must have addition to any rapid weaving web head and free form content designer.

Blocks is the best plugin for Rapidweaver hands down. I can't imagine designing an entire website without using it at least for some of the pages. Makes a great product, RW, even better. Great developer as well, all of his products are first rate. If you are going to start using RW then this is your first plugin to buy.

Great product - It enhances RapidWeaver's capabilities no end - and great support. I emailed the developer with a query and got the answer I was looking for within an hour and a half. Fantastic!

This + Rapidweaver is a really solid product. It's not perfect, but neither are any of the alternatives (maybe your hand-coded CSS/XHTML isn't perfect either!) I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs to build a creative site extremely fast. Even if you're just using the created site as a feature rich mockup for clients, the price and ease of use really can't be beat. Kudos to the dev.

I invite Blocks 3 users to visit my new website, www.blockshead.com to share blocks and master pages for the new Blocks 3 library feature. Nothing to download yet, but now accepting file submissions. Thanks!

RapidWeaver is not designed to do WYSIWYG -- and neither is Blocks. Blocks only controls the content area of your RapidWeaver layout. I DOES allow you to do thing that other pure WYSIWYG software does not. You can add HTML code, PHP, Flash and javascript very easily. Those benefits (or RapidWeaver as a whole) come at the cost of pure WYSIWYG. I'm sorry someone had trouble with Internet Explorer -- but I believe his experience is probably not the norm. I use Blocks for many pages on my own web site and it's tested regularly to work well on IE 6 and 7, Firefox, Comino, Opera, and of course, Safari. Give it a test yourself and find out! Isaiah

I'm back... I'll just tell anyone to be extremely careful before planning to use this... way too many issues with Explorer on PC... so when it is all peachy and sweet on Safari for example.. it is a completely different story with Explorer (PC as it is dead on MAc so we cannot even test it.. nope I ain't got a hybrid machine yet) and we all know 95% of internet users on the planet use Safari... NOT... so think twice ! I'm trashing the plugin.. . I'^ve lloked way stupid in the face of a cleint and this promising plugin has unfortunately brought me trouble and has wasted much of my time.. so I would not recommend it to anyone who needs its pages to fucntion on Explorer on PC..emenaing: everyone basically.

Not perfect -- wysiwyg isn't quite 100% -- but it's still a great plug-in that gives the rather rigid structure of RapidWeaver some flexibility. Haven't decided whether to drop cash yet for it, but the demo doesn't suck.

Ok sure it adds a very useful functionality.. but it is buggy... blocks eat up part of their content if you trust the wysiwyg setup view.. basically what you see is not what you get. You've got to give more space on the sides of the blocks to make sure you are not missing content.. and the blocks end up not appearing similar in different browsers.. namely Safari on OSX and Explorer on Windows. The blocks cannot be locked while working so any "wrong" mouse movement moves them.. when all you wanted to do was edit their content you move the blocks themselves almsot every single time.. sure a little undo will put them back where they were but till I find this aggravating.. so a "lock block position" seems mandatory as far as I'm concerned. All in all RW and all its plugins are very cute but the whole deal feels a bit childish for lack of a better word. Not sure it is a YourHead issue, all this may stem frm the way RW is built.. dunno. Yet RW has no true adversary so I guess one cannot really complain... this whole arena is open to development I guess then.

Great plug-in - so good, in fact, it should have been part of the application in the first place. The drag-and-drop positioning for text + images gives you much more scope for creative page layouts and it's really easy to use - with an interface that's clear and simple and consistent with the latest apps from Apple (+ others). It's not always spot on for WYSIWYG layouts, and you can't import movies yet. (A major omission.) Otherwise it's close to perfect - and virtually essential if you want to get the most out of Rapidweaver without becoming a web expert.

TERRIFIC. WYSIWYG. Very easy to use, really expands Rapid Weaver's capabilities and for such a very small price. I highly recommend this software along with the other plug-ins named Collage and Columns.
