Bootsnap 3 AddonKit #2 Manual

BootSnap3 Addon Kit #2

Addon Kit #1 is a group of 8 stacks designed to work with the BootSnap3 theme. It's important to understand that BootSnap Stacks are designed to work exclusively with the BootSnap3 RapidWeaver theme. Third party stacks *may* work with BootSnap theme, but they are not supported. Likewise, the BootSnap stacks may work with other themes, but they are not supported as such.


When you purchase the Addon Kit #1, you'll receive a file called BootSnapAddOnKit2.dmg. This disk image contains a folder with your RW theme and Stacks. Just select all the items inside the folder and doublclick to install. If RapidWeaver is open, you'll need to close and relaunch RapidWeaver to see your newly installed products.

Getting Started

Then add as many Stacks 2.5 pages as you like and add any of the BootSnap stacks to your pages. Sticking with BootSnap theme and stacks insures a fully responsive finished product.

Flip adds a slick horizontal "flip it over" animation effect to stacks content. This stack contains two drop zones for additional stacks.  When the page loads, the content in the Front stack is displayed.  The visitor can click this content to FLIP the stack and show the content on the back.  The stack has no additional settings, simply drop in your front and back content and go. 


Grid is a super simple way to add Google Sheets data to your Rapidweaver site.  Simply build your spreadsheet within your Google account.  When you're ready, choose File -> Publish To the Web from your sheet's toolbar.  Choose LINK as the publish type and take note of the URL.  You can also automate publishing to the web by selecting  Automatically Republish When Changes Are Made.  Publish, then go back to Rapidweaver.  In the Sheet URL field, paste in the URL shown on the Link settings when you published.  You will also need to provide the sheet name which should be presented at page load.  By default, Google names this Sheet1, so unless you've changed this, simply enter:  Sheet1 in the Worksheet Name setting.
