Perfect fit
The Create theme is a great choice for RapidWeaver users who need a versatile, robust theme. It provides you the ability to build a strong, professional site in no time.

In addition to all of its amazing built-in theme variations it works well with the most popular 3rd-party RapidWeaver plugin styles like Stacks, Collage, FormLoom 2 and PayLoom. These are some of the must have plug-ins for any RapidWeaver user. In fact, this very page is built using Stacks.
Going that extra mile
Create supports 4 different ExtraContent areas. One at the top of the content area just below the header, one at the bottom of the main content area below your content and sidebar, another in the footer of the site, and finally a very special, one-line ExtraContent area located just below the site navigation, above the header.
Blog Entry Thumbnails
Create brings something entirely new to RapidWeaver. Blog Entry Thumbnails. It's something that is often seen on WordPress sites, so we wanted that same goodness in RapidWeaver.
Drop down menus
The drop down navigation is one of the most beautiful menus in any of our themes to date. This stylish navigation will help your visitors find their way around your site with ease.
Header slideshows
There's no need to go through the clunky procedure of using PlusKit's @import(()) to make a slideshow header. The Create theme has a built-in slideshow feature you're going to love.
LightBox photo albums
Create comes with two Photo Album styles: The default RapidWeaver gallery as well as a LightBox alternative. Choosing which you'd like to use is as easy a clicking a theme variation in the Page Inspector.
Your ExtraContent Options
ExtraContent Area 1
Located in the main content area, just above your content and sidebar. This is the most popular ExtraContent area, by far. This ExtraContent area features 8 divider styles that will give your site a great look.
ExtraContent Area 2
Our second most requested ExtraContent area. This one is located below the content and sidebar, within the main content area. This ExtraContent area features 2 divider styles.
ExtraContent Area 3
This one is located at the base of the theme in the footer area. It can either be placed on the site background or have it’s own white background box.
ExtraContent Area 4
This ExtraContent area is new and unique. It's located below the theme’s navigations menu and above the main content area. Don’t be fooled, this one area is packed with awesomeness.
Using ExtraContent
Using the ExtraContent features of the Create theme are pretty darned easy. If you're new to ExtraContent, or just want to see the ExtraContent areas in action, we walk you through using them in this video tutorial.

Beautiful blogging
In the past we’ve made it a habit of dressing up the RapidWeaver blog page, using icons in the archives and blog entries and even creating little blog badges for the entries themselves.

Well the Create theme is no different. In fact it is much better. We’re happy to introduce a new feature for the blog entries with this theme that we call Blog Entry Thumbnails.

Blog Entry Thumbnails area super easy to use and really add some personality to your site and blog.

Checkout our walk through video to see what they look like and learn quickly how use them.

In addition to the Blog Entry Thumbnails we’ve also provided some blog badge styles, as well as an option to toggle off the blog badges.
