As with most of our themes, the banner is one of the areas where this theme really shines and allows you to customize the look and feel of your site.
You can use either a static image or slideshow of several different images as the banner for your pages, which is configurable on a per-page basis.
The Create theme features 28 different banner images built-in to its variations.
Each and every one of them are editable with the 3rd-party app RWmultitool.
If you’re not familiar with RWmultitoo, go check it out. There’s a free demo so you can try it out before buying it.
You can choose from 3 different banner / slideshow heights:
Don’t need a banner or a slideshow on a page? Create also allows you to hide it on a page-by-page basis.
You can choose from 5 different slideshows which rotate through the stock banner images included in the theme. You can modify these stock banners with RWmultitool and then choose the appropriate slideshow option to create your own.
If you’re on a little more advanced level you can use the RapidWeaver Resources section and your own images, along with a snippet of code we’re shipping with the Create theme, to make your own custom banner. We walk you through the process in a video under the tutorials tab.
You can place the sidebar on either the left- or right-hand side of your site. If you don’t need it, Create also allows you to hide it as well.
We’ve also included several background choices for the sidebar title.
The Create theme has a very specific, polished look about it.
We've integrated a few color pickers into it though to help you customize its look a bit though, allowing you to modify the Body Text, Link Color, Site Title and Slogan and the ExtraContent area 3 Text.
In order to make room for all of your content, we've equipped the Create theme with a variety of widths to choose from:
When you use RapidWeaver’s built-in site logo feature, the logo will appear at the top of the sidebar.
In addition to the built-in site logo feature we’ve also made ALL of the Create theme’s stock banners editable with RWmultitool. Creating a custom header is a great alternative to using the site logo feature!
You can choose to change the font style for both the site title and slogan. You can choose from Museo Slab, Museo Sans, Maven Pro, Helvetica and Georgia.
In addition to changing the font style for the site Title and Slogan you can also hide each of these items on a page-by-page basis.
We've provided 5 different fonts for you to choose from for the body of the site: Georgia, Lucida Grande, Times, Helvetica and Verdana.
This theme has a new Blog Entry Thumbnail feature. This allows you to insert an image into each blog post, and have that image show as a sort of badge next to each of your blog posts. Be sure to watch our video on using this new feature in the tutorials section on this page.
The navigation for Create is a horizontal navigation bar that functions as a drop down menu.
The navigation system supports 4 levels of navigation; the main parent level and 3 child levels.
You have the option of enabling a lightbox style effect for your photo album pages within the Create theme. This provides a beautiful way to dress up your Photo Album pages. If you're not in need of a lightbox you can disable it and use the standard RapidWeaver Photo Album style.
The Create theme comes with 4 different ExtraContent areas built-in to allow you a great deal of flexibility when developing your site and pages. We've got a video in the tutorials section that goes over how to use them.
