RapidWeaver 8 is shaping up very nicely, I've even heard that it should be launching within the next few weeks (exact date to be confirmed soon). So to whet your appetite further, I thought I’d share a preview of the five new themes shipping in RapidWeaver 8.

New Theme Features

All of the new themes are built upon Bootstrap 4, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that your site is fully responsive, and backed by modern, cross-browser tested, rock-solid code (and, if you're an advanced user, you have the power of bootstrap at your fingertips).

By using Bootstrap it enabled us to bring feature parity across all new themes; they each come with style options for font sizing, column widths, banner filters, content width, multiple colour options, and more.

These style options are made available due to some new theme styling features coming to RapidWeaver 8:

  1. Slider: great for things such as column widths and font sizes.
  2. Number input: works well for features where an exact number is required, such as your site width.

I’ll cover the new theme styling features in another post very soon!

Right, let’s get to the theme previews. In no particular order, here’s a sneak peek at the five new themes coming in RapidWeaver 8.

Mountains Theme


Future Theme


Engineer Theme


Artful Theme


Climate Theme


All these themes are brand-new and built exclusively for RapidWeaver 8. Each theme comes with a tonne of customisation options, meaning you can change the look and feel to fit your requirements.

I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoyed designing and building them.
