Formally developed by another theme developer, Altitude has been totally re-written from scratch to incorporate a great many more style and colour variations. This is now a very complete and stable RapidWeaver theme that is ideally suited for lots of different projects. By default, Altitude has a clean and minimalist feel about it. The use of a FreeStyle banner container and bold text give Altitude a distinctive feel. This theme is absolutely ideal for novice RapidWeaver users (or anybody else) wanting a theme that is easy to work with and a theme design that gives professional results fast.


As you would expect, Altitude is fully responsive. This theme displays content beautifully on large, cinematic monitors. On tablet devices, the page layout scales smoothly to fit smaller screen sizes. Aspects of the design like the horizontal navigation (which would traditionally start to break on smaller screen sizes) reverts to a user-friendly toggle menu. The theme continues to scale down on smaller devices like smart phones, whereby columns and grids dissolve into a single column. Everything you need to build a cross-device-compatible website is there.

Style settings

Altitude does not skimp on useful theme settings. Options exist to change just about every colour you see on screen using colour pickers, so you can devise custom colour schemes and match existing corporate branding. Settings are also provided to adjust font styling, theme width, sidebar width and placement, and columns.

Loads of font options

The font size and line spacing of content can be customised within the theme settings. We also give you access to over 100 embedded font faces to apply to headings, navigation and body content. All the font files are self-contained within the theme; making this theme stronger and more reliable.

FreeStyle banner

Arguably the shinning beacon in this theme is the main banner container above the page fold. This banner utilises FreeStyle, so it's basically a blank canvas to do whatever you want with. Static images, sliders, carousels, slideshows and even video can be embedded into the banner region. The banner is fully responsive and expands vertically to incorporate your content. More documentation about FreeStyle is provided in the Wiki. Setting up static banner images of your own can be as simple as dragging and dropping an image named header.jpg, freestyle.jpg or banner.jpg into your sidebar; and the theme will embed it into the banner for you. 20 example retro-styled banner images are included in the theme, numbered between 1.jpg and 20.jpg.

Other details

When using Altitude, you'll find that most RapidWeaver page types print or save as PDF in a very tidy manner; with no messy navigation links and other non-essentials wasting lots of ink or paper. Pages load very quickly; even on slower internet connections. Many search engine optimisations have been built into this theme, granting you the best opportunity to have your website feature high-up in search engine results. Subtle animation effects and shadows give completed pages a sense of professionalism throughout.

Beyond what you see on the surface, Altitude is built on the Twitter Bootstrap frontend framework. Twitter Bootstrap is by-far the most popular frontend framework used by expert web developers, for many reasons. We've included some other useful features like Font Awesome icons, FitVids, jQuery and retina Image support; all of which will save you the time, trouble and expense of buying separate addons to accomplish common tasks.
