Now unfortunately discontinued it seems.

I have really enjoyed Kiwi when using it and it is as pointed out beaten Tweetie at it's own game, however I'll have to wait for a few more features before it takes the place of Nambu full time. With Nambu I don't have to go to horrible sites like iFrog to see the images and I don't have to click on a shortened link to see which domain it will take me to. This avoids Digg links I don't want to go to etc.

It is the best looking Twitter app I've seen, as you can bend it to your will thanks to clever thinking by the developer vis. Kiwi themes. I think in time it might win me over when the feature set fits me.

This is THE layout plugin for RapidWeaver. The use of relative/fluid positioning is far more the way forward than the limits placed by absolute positioning (iWeb style). Allow your pages to contain whatever arrangement of columns and rows you wish, varying each division to suit, including whatever type of content you can manage!! Trying to code this by hand at times would be crazy and incredibly time consuming. Stacks makes it a breeze.

The beauty of the relative positioning really comes into it's own for those with restricted eyesight visiting your site, when them enlarging the text with a browser command doesn't 'break' your page, but it fluidly expands to allow this. iWeb will usually block the facility to prevent the loss of text behind other assets, as the fixed positioning doesn't cope.

You will already notice if you frequent the Realmac Software Forums that 3rd party Stacks are becoming available, and some free too!! Image with caption floated left and right (thanks Phil Warrender), Twitter feed (a real corker! thanks Elixir Graphics!) and more are bound to follow.

Isaiah at Yourhead Software takes incredible care to make sure the code output from his RapidWeaver Plugins is as efficient and SEO friendly as possible, and Stacks is no different.

If you own RapidWeaver, you owe it to your websites to download this and see what it's all about. I'll be amazed if you then don't feel the need to buy it!!

The power and flexibility of this plugin is awesome for the price. I have been using this as the form on my website for a month or so, and love it.

You can customize automated reply e-mails to include the sender's message, store elements in a MySQL database, use AJAX to show message sent success, or use customized separate pages for success/failure.

It doesn't start out with all form elements (fields) in place, so just create a few fields to get going. There is a FAQ for FormLoom at


Also, read the Realmac Announcements Forum for even more tips.

Throughout even the early Beta stages, it was working remarkably well, and many more things got added along the way!

With this sort of app, it all depends what you want.

I wanted the ability to easy decide I had read enough Apple stuff and push them off the list in front of me. No such luck. Easily see all the feeds from one source, can't manage that (if it's there, it's too well hidden).

I won't be feeding RSS feeds out to all and sundry through iChat and Mail, everyone has the ones they want, they don't want me bashing out more messages with what I think they should look at.

I'm sure plenty won't agree with me, but it's always personal choice. Plenty of features I won't ever use, not many I will. Seems stable although I'm not going to run it long enough to really tell.

This will produce commercial websites (I have done plenty) and is for the majority of users very stable (3 crashes since February, run pretty much every day) and is an extensible app. It will do a lot as it stands, without being too hard, and there are many free plugins and themes to get you achieving more too. Add other plugins, and it's hard to outgrow

The core app and workflow are much improved from 3.6, speeding up working significantly. I mix using code and drag and drop with great success. As for cost, what on earth is there at this price point that comes close? Nothing that I've found.

The people that struggle most often, are the WYSIWYG lot. If this statement ever translated to what you see is what everyone gets, it might be worth something, but even in Dreamweaver it doesn't, so it isn't. It is for me, the emperor's new clothes. My sites behave better across browser variations now that I admit this is the case, and work with relative positioning more than absolute. Try the RapidWeaver way, and it will work for you.
