A beautiful theme to expose your personal brand to future clients or employees. Exposure is expertly designed and developed for anybody wanting to create an online resume for themselves or others. A flat design, crisp typography and mobile responsiveness make this theme perfect for the task.

Building and hosting your own resume website is not only a lot more fun, but is also more professional; compared with putting-up pages on Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+ etc. You have the choice of using your own domain name. Everybody should have an online resume to list past achievements and outline future goals. A great way to advertise oneself.

Exposure is not only limited to creating a really compelling resume website. Exposure could be great to use for a simple photography portfolio, a film making showcase or creative writing website. Or as a temporary 'coming soon' landing page. A couple of people have also found it useful for a single-page wedding website.


By default, Exposure generates a table of contents (TOC) from all the headings in your main content container. When clicked, the navigation tabs smooth-scroll to that particular point in the page. It is possible to disable the TOC very easily in the theme settings and display a single level of your RapidWeaver-generated page navigation links instead. Any links to sub-pages would need to be created manually.

Alternatively you can disable the navigation links completely and custom-code your own navigation inside ExtraContent 1 like this:

<li><a href="https://example.com">Link One</a></li>
<li><a href="https://example.com">Link Two</a></li>
<li><a href="https://example.com">Link Three</a></li>
<li><a href="https://example.com">Link Four</a></li>
In essence, this is an unordered list with each list item containing a link tag. You should be able to see where to change the page addresses and the link text. Place your markup within an ExtraContent stack or code snippet.

This is a good option if you want to combine the theme with RWML for generating a multilingual website with a translatable set of navigation links.


The header in Exposure is set to occupy 100% of the screen height, on wider displays. To ensure end users realise that the page can be scrolled down, a 'downward' pointing arrow is displayed. Clicking this arrow scrolls the user down to the next section of the webpage.

Exposure uses some clever CSS Flexbox trickery to split the header into two columns, with content vertically aligned to the middle. Your site title and slogan are displayed on the left and a banner image is displayed on the right. Any image you place into the RapidWeaver Banner box, a FreeStyle container or ExtraContent 6 will be displayed as a banner image.

On narrower screens, the two columns become a single column.

Presenting your page content

It is important to note that our demo site for Exposure uses a normal Styled Text page type supplied with RapidWeaver. This proves that you do not need to buy lots of expensive stacks or other addons, to achieve the same level of excellent content presentation! The generated markup for the page is clean, error free and optimised for search engines.

When you download the sample project file, you will see that we make use of simple HTML heading tags, unordered lists and blockquotes for the bulk of the page. The little 'print' button at the bottom of the page is created with this code:

<div class="center noprint">
<a href="#" onClick='window.print();' class="btn btn-ghost">
<i class="fas fa-print"></i> Print This Page

Pro Tip: If using HTML markup in Styled Text, highlight your markup and select Ignore Formatting from the RapidWeaver Format menu. Then the whitespace and carriage returns will be ignored.

Our demo of Exposure also shows a photograph of Alice that can be clicked and expanded to a larger size within a lightbox effect. Again you do not need to buy extra stacks to achieve this same effect because Exposure - like many of our other themes - includes the Nivo Lightbox effect. To configure this, add the full-size image as a resource. Drag and drop a smaller version of the image into your page and set it to float from Format > HTML > Align Image Left / Right. Select the image to make it a link. When setting it as a link to the full size image, give it a custom name attribute of class and a custom value attribute of lightbox like this:


After you save the changes and preview the page, you should find your image is now 'lightboxed'. Please see the ThemeFlood Knowledgebase for a more in-depth article about the lightbox and other functionality it supports.

Bottom content

Exposure does not have a conventional sidebar container floated to the left or right of your main content container. Instead the sidebar is a full-width block, placed towards the bottom of the page. It can support many different content types added through the RapidWeaver Page Inspector. Options also exist to split the sidebar into multiple columns. In our example for Exposure, we split the sidebar into 3 columns and made use of some <section> tags to define the blocks of content to display. The sample code we used can be copied from the project file and used as a basis to structure your own bottom content. The use of <section> was done to avoid unequal-height columns reflowing mid-paragraph.

Responsive column stacks placed inside ExtraContent 8 or ExtraContent 9 will work just as well, if you want to avoid the use of any HTML markup in your sidebar area.

Includes RWFontKit

Our RWFontKit plugin is built-into Exposure. This gives you instant access to over 120 web safe and embedded font faces in both standard and Latin extended character sets. Embedded fonts can add a professional touch to any written content. All embedded fonts on offer to you are stored within the theme itself - so you are not at the mercy of relying on third-party font providers and the subsequent privacy issues that may incur.


The free demo version of Exposure can be downloaded using this link. There is no time limit imposed on the demo version, but page navigation links are disabled in the demo version. Watermarks may appear periodically in parts of the page (like the banner or footer). Please see this knowledgebase article for more information about the free demo versions provided. Purchasing Exposure provides you with a licensed copy of Exposure; without any demo restrictions applied.
