Welcome to the ThemeFlood knowledgebase

The knowledgebase is your one-stop shop, covering many aspects of using ThemeFlood themes in RapidWeaver. Access to this support resource is free. The information contained within the knowledgebase is provided to help you build websites faster and exploit all of the powerful features that our theme designs include. After all, RapidWeaver should be about building quality websites more rapidly!

The information contained in the knowledgebase is applicable to RapidWeaver 5 and later; which are the same versions of RapidWeaver our theme designs are compatible with. Any important information or variations for specific versions of RapidWeaver (like RapidWeaver 6 or RapidWeaver 7) is clearly marked.

We update the knowledgebase on a regular basis, with the purpose of revising content and to add new information or links. Something changes on here almost every week. Please bookmark this webpage and use the knowledgebase as your first point of help when using our themes.

Using the knowledgebase

You can access this knowledgebase 24/7 from any desktop web browser, tablet or mobile device. Many articles have been published in this knowledgebase. Articles are sorted into group categories like getting started and theming techniques.

Clicking or tapping on an article name takes you through to that particular article. Articles are arranged in alphabetical order, within each group. Many of the knowledge articles we provide include sample code, images or even video.

You are welcome to bookmark or share links to specific articles, using the buttons at the top of the page. However due to the dynamic nature of the knowledgebase (and frequency of updates), please kindly refrain from copying and re-posting information elsewhere (like to the RapidWeaver forums) because this information might become quickly outdated and very confusing to other people.

Should you have any feedback about knowledgebase articles, please use the feedback link and form located towards the bottom of each article.
