Why is this theme called Stalker? Simply because on desktop, the sidebar follows you as the page is scrolled down! It's always been a unique feature of this theme.

In recent times, Stalker has received a major design overhaul. This theme is now much more minimalist in appearance, boasting plenty of whitespace, beautiful embedded web fonts and a simple navigation system that won't leave end users confused. The asymmetric design certainly makes Stalker an ideal theme to use for websites like business, travel and tourism, hospitality and marketing. The prominent FreeStyle banner area at the top of the page is easily customised to include your own images.

Another unique feature of Stalker is its support for extra-long site titles and slogans. These allow you to get quite creative and write longer passages of text to engage website users.

Three methods towards creating the perfect header

Stalker provides you with three methods for customising the header area with your own images. The header forms a prominent part of the page design and is a fantastic space to load-in your own images and radically change the appearance of the theme with very little effort:-

Drag and drop
In RapidWeaver 7 and later, any images you drag and drop into the Banner box within the site setup or page inspector will get applied as a header image.

Use the FreeStyle technique documented in the knowledgebase to embed a variety of content types. We also have a free FreeStyle stack available to help you quickly assemble a pro-grade image slideshow, complete with animations and captions.

Any image you place in ExtraContent 1 will be stretched to fill the banner area. You can use your own photographs or stock photography from online.

In all instances, the images will resize to fit the full width of the page. The header will automatically adjust in height to fit your images. You should find that everything scales-down smoothly to fit smaller mobile devices. As a bonus, ALT attributes applied to your images will be seen by search engines, and help them with indexing your website and improving your search engine optimisation.

Fabulous font formatting

The font face applied to the site title, headings, navigation and body content can be changed independently within the theme settings. You have over 100 web-safe and quality embedded font faces to choose from. All fonts support Latin extended characters.

In addition to these font face settings, the font size of the title, slogan and body content can be customised. Line height settings are also provided for the body content. As you would expect, the colouring of all text, headings and links can be changed within the theme style settings, using convenient 'colour pickers'.

Body backgrounds

Is white too bland for you? Worry not - Stalker allows you to apply a colour fill and one of over a hundred background texture patters. Choose between fabric textures, line patterns, nature backdrops and masonry effects. Again these body backgrounds give you a quick method to radically alter what you see on screen.


The 'stickiness' of the sidebar can be easily disabled in the theme Miscellaneous settings, if you do not want it. Our sticky sidebar uses pure CSS markup, so you should not suffer with the jerkiness and rough scrolling caused by a Javascript implementation. On desktop, the sidebar can be floated either left or right in a variety of widths. On mobile, the sidebar can be positioned either top or bottom of the page.


Stalker has a simple split navigation layout on desktop. Parent page links are displayed in the navigation bar and subpage links (if they exist) are displayed in the sidebar. For mobile users, the list of menu links are presented within an attractive popup menu.

If you want to change the word 'Menu' displayed next to the mobile menu button, you can easily do so using some custom CSS code like this:

#menuButtonLabel:before {
    content: ' Menu';

This simplified navigation layout makes completed websites a lot more accessible - to the extent that you can navigate an entire website using only your keyboard arrows and tab key. Stalker includes a Miscellaneous checkbox option to highlight focused links in yellow text, with a red background.
