Poster for RapidWeaver - an upgrade

In February of 2017, I reviewed the Poster stack from In Stacks. At the time of the review, I mentioned that this was a soft release and that Jannis was still working on the stack.

Poster has just received an important update. It is now possible to add posts outside of RapidWeaver!
Yes, you read correctly; if you are building a client site, it is now possible for your client to edit the Poster page and add, or delete content.

So how does this work? Poster can load markdown files. This means, of course, that

  • Your client will need to learn markdown (which is actually very simple) and
  • Your client will need an FTP solution

The FTP solution would be above most client's heads, but wait! Jannis has a solution for that too. Remember that I also tested InStack's Repository Stack? With Repository, you can very easily add a (hidden) page to your client's site that will allow him to drag in new files – in this case, the new markdown files that should be loaded via Poster. Nothing could be simpler!

You can see a simple test post here: https://rw-ninja.news/Poster-blog. I haven't played around with the formatting, so this is 'out of the box'.

And there's more to come – Poster is still a work in progress; it will take some time, but Jannis plans to add an online editor, making things even simpler.

Last year, Poster was already highly recommended as a replacement for the inflexible RW Blog page, today, I can only endorse Poster as the ideal replacement for a blog page; in fact, once I can work out how to transfer my Armadillo posts to Poster, I'll be moving on.
Why? Because Poster is now much more flexible; the stack will finally allow me to design my pages the way that I want them.

Stay tuned; in the near future the RapidWeaver Ninja News page will hopefully look very different!
