Torrent is a bright and vibrant RapidWeaver theme which lends itself well towards the creation of great looking, modern websites. This would be a perfect choice of theme for software, marketing, design, or business websites. It is another theme which breaks the mould and goes beyond a standard 2-column layout.

Although it looks quite complex theme on the surface, Torrent is actually easy to master. Development on the Torrent theme started in September 2010. During this period the theme has been used in several live websites for clients. Some expert RapidWeaver users (people using RapidWeaver daily to manage and build commercial websites) have also heavily influenced the design and development of this exciting new theme. Torrent is compatible with RapidWeaver 5.

Updates for the Torrent RapidWeaver theme are free for all existing users. Theme updates are periodically released to introduce new features and maintain compatibility with the latest RapidWeaver addons and web browsers. You can tell if an update is available for Torrent, by comparing the number shown next to the theme name in the RapidWeaver theme panel, compared with the version number shown on the right.

Generally theme updates are not sent out automatically, because previously it was found many of the emails went missing in junk or spam mail filters. Instead you're invited to check for Torrent updates yourself, and download them at a time convenient to you. Updates also get publicised via the RapidWeaver Addon website, the RapidWeaver Central newsletter and the free iCentral app.

Theme updates can be obtained using the original download link, emailed to you when you purchased Torrent. If you no longer have this download link or you require an expired link to be reactivated, please send a quick email, and include the following information:

  • Name and version of the theme you need an update for (in this case say that you need Torrent 2.0)
  • The name and email address used when you purchased the theme
  • The purchase method used (was it purchased through the website or as a direct order?)
  • Any other useful information like the date, or invoice number

Once your purchase details have been located, you'll be sent a new download link. Theme updates are recognised in RapidWeaver as new themes, so multiple versions of the same theme can be safely installed alongside each other. This means you can selectively update certain projects to use newer themes, and any customisations you've applied like custom code or images don't get deleted. For more information on updating themes, please see the theme user guide.

Feel free to use this comment form to ask any questions about the theme, put forward ideas, submit feature requests or post links to awesome websites you've created using the theme. Comments are moderated, so it may take a little while before they show here. If you have an urgent or non-public question, simply contact me directly.
