Introducing the Hive theme for RapidWeaver 5 & 6
As I was working on the Ivy stack I was also building out a brand-new RapidWeaver theme. Before I could get it wrapped up the holidays quickly overtook me and this new design got set aside for a little while. I picked it back up at the beginning of the year after returning to work and I think it was a good thing it got delayed.
Once I dove back in to building out this new theme’s variations and options I felt inspired again and it received many new features that I’d not had on my checklist before the holiday break. This all led to a beautiful, responsive new theme called Hive.
Hive provides you a great platform for building sites for yourself and your clients. Creating blogs, portfolios, small business sites and more are a breeze. Here’s a quick look as some of its most notable features:
- The ability to use your own images as banners, site backgrounds, and ExtraContent area backgrounds
- 35 professional, stock banners
- 45 different color pickers
- 7 ExtraContent areas
- Social media badges
- A responsive lightbox for your photo album images
- Our ever-popular Blog Entry topper
- Good font selection
These aren’t Hive’s only features though. There is a lot more to see and learn about this beautiful new theme. Be sure to check out the Hive product page to read up on all of its features, as well as to check out our overview and tutorial videos, along with our live preview site.
If you need some great stock images to use in Hive’s banner area, site background or ExtraContent area background, be sure to check out our stock images section of the site. We’ve got a lot of great abstract stock art that works wonderfully for these purposes, and are always adding more.
