So, you've bought Rapidweaver - and were so excited to get started on building your new website. You managed to start a new site, picked a theme and added a page or two. Your first couple of pages look nice - you managed to put an image on the homepage, and have an introductory paragraph or two. So far so good.
But, then your excitement came to a screeching halt. Working with Rapidweaver is nothing like working with Powerpoint - it's sort of WYSIWYG, but not really. You copied your content from Word and placed it on your Rapidweaver page - and now it's all screwed up. Getting the text to flow around images? Forget it. And forms? Ugh!!!
If you're like most folks, the first thing you'll look for are the manuals or free video tutorials. The manual, at least the one Google can find, is really just a series of questions and answers. Not much help there. So, you look for the videos. Ah ha! You found some free ones on the Rapidweaver site! But, then you realize that there are only six of them - and none of them really answer the questions you have. If you want access to the 'real' videos - the ones produced by the Rapidweaver folks that are going to really answer your questions, you'll need to purchase them. At a cost of $10.00/month (ok, really it's a nickel under $10) - and to be honest, you really don't know what your buying. There's no list of what videos are available - or what's coming.
The Rapidweaver community has always been one of its strongest features. Their bulletin board / forum has long been recognized as a go-to place for help. The long-time users are happy to assist newcomers with their questions. But, wading through the incredible amount of spam is a real chore - and most often, you realize that what you really want is for someone to SHOW you how to do something.

Is it expensive? Not hardly. Other options for learning how to create Rapidweaver sites run as much as $20.00 a month. But, we don't believe that anyone needs full-fledge training to work with Rapidweaver. The built-in themes make it easy to create a website - and since it's Mac-based, it's fairly intuitive. However, we know from experience that even though Rapidweaver has drag-and-drop functionality and WYSIWYG page editing, that the program can be a little difficult to use. With WeaverTips, though, you'll find it a breeze!
