A popular free RapidWeaver theme, featuring a simple two-column layout. Basic Blue incorporates a basic array of theme style and colour settings. This theme is easy to work with and ideal if you're new to RapidWeaver and seeking a decent addon theme.

Tip: If you are requiring a theme with a similar design to Basic Blue, but with a lot more customisable options, take a closer look at the ABC theme.


Basic Blue is a responsive RapidWeaver theme. This means that it will respond to different screen sizes and ensure your content continues to display well, without sections getting cut-off or horizontal scrollbars showing. Responsive design means that pages you create for desktop-sized screens should display perfectly fine on handheld devices; like tablets and smartphones.


A unique feature of the Basic Blue theme is the small banner displayed at the top-left of the page. This is a FreeStyle banner and makes it easy to get a small image embedded into this region. The banner creates an eye-catching embellishment. It's possible to have different images shown at the top of different pages.


Basic Blue is compatible with all major web browsers. It's also a theme that plays well with lots of popular RapidWeaver page style plugins and Stack elements. For people not afraid to delve into HTML code, both the Bootstrap toolkit and Font Awesome Icons are supported in the latest versions of Basic Blue. These give you the ability to include extra functionality and embellishments in your page designs.

Pro features in a free theme

Free does not mean a compromise on features! Basic Blue includes support for Font Awesome icons, Nivo Lightbox, ExtraContent, the complete Twitter Bootstrap framework, Retina.js and FitVids. These components give you a lot of extra fire-power to build brilliant websites with.
