A useful little RapidWeaver theme, ideally suited towards software, app or marketing websites. Sahara is expertly designed with a subtle colour scheme, clear typography and intelligent, responsive behaviour. This RapidWeaver theme will certainly help you market your products or services at their best! The provision of a FreeStyle banner container and numerous ExtraContent containers allow you to break-outside of the normal content containers to build eye-catching websites.

Despite offered for free, Sahara includes a bountiful array of professional features; many of which you might struggle to find in paid themes from other companies! Built-in support for the Nivo Lightbox lets you instantly lightbox images, video or iFrame content. Sahara also includes Font Awesome icons, responsive video support, retina image support and the complete Twitter Bootstrap framework.

Logo placeholder

Any logo image you add to your RapidWeaver project will be set as a link back to your designated homepage and displayed at the top left of the page. A logo image 50px tall in size is recommended for use in this theme.


A total of 20 ExtraContent containers are built into Sahara, and these let you break-out of the normal RapidWeaver editable regions and create much richer page designs. ExtraContent1 in this RapidWeaver theme is designated as a 'social bar'. Once switched on in the theme style settings, this social bar can be used to display social networking links or icons, contact information and simple messages.

FreeStyle Banner

A FreeStyle banner is basically an empty responsive container, into which you can display just about any content. Commonly people use the banner for static images and video, but that is certainly not a limit to your creativity! To get content in the banner, you can use the standard FreeStyle code snippet (documented in the theme user guide) or the brilliant FreeStyle stack. Likewise any images placed in ExtraContent6 will also get rendered as a static image in the banner. 5 example banner images are included with the theme (named 1.jpg to 5.jpg).

Social networking

Sahara includes the ThemeFlood standard 'social bar' settings. Utilising ExtraContent1, this container can be set to display as a floating box or a tagline container, towards the top of your pages. Into the social you can place icons to social networking or bookmarking websites, additional navigation links or contact details.

Style settings

Sahara offers a wide choice of colour settings, permitting you to change the colour of just about everything shown on screen. So within a few clicks, you can radically alter the appearance of this theme design and make it look like you own!
