Venture Tutorial
Banner Image Import
The following steps describe how to utilize the Resources area within RapidWeaver for placing an image in the banner area.

1. Place an image in the Resources area of the theme.

2. Insert the following code with the Custom CSS box in RapidWeaver:
#feature {background-image: url(%resource(my-image.jpg)%);}
3. Replace the "my-image" with the name of the image.

To avoid any issues that may arise with placing an image in the banner area, please avoid spacing or using any characters in the name of the image. Short and simple names are the most reliable.
Slideshow
Venture requires a 3rd party product to utilize a slideshow. Venture's preview site features Superflex (sold separately), an easy-to-use slideshow product which can be found at the following link: http://nickcatesdesign.com/rapidweaver_themes/ (Please note Superflex only works with Stacks 2 pages). Once Superflex has been successfully installed, the following steps describe how to set-up your slideshow:

1. In Stacks 2, click on the cube icon located at the top left side of your screen. Scroll down until you find Superflex.

2. Simply drag Superflex to your Stacks 2 page.

3. You are now ready to drag images from your desktop to the box with the arrow pointing down. Once you have placed your images within Superflex, your slideshow is now complete. It really is that easy!

Several customizable options are available with Superflex such as the number of images, length of time between slides, and transition types. Remember to un-click the Quick-Set-up and click on banner import to ensure your slideshow appears in the banner area.
Custom Containers
Download each of the three snippets included with the theme by double-clicking on each one:

#1. Venture MainTitle/Header Container
#2. Venture Text Title Container
#3 Venture Text Container

Once the snippets have been installed, click on the snippets icon and simply drag the desired snippet the content area of your styled text or stacks page. Replace the text between the code with your text and switch to preview for instant results. Spacing is critical to how these containers display. To re-create a container with a title header, connect #2 and #3 by making sure there is no space between the end of the code and the beginning of the next code.
Social Icons
Venture provides two placement options for social icons- in the content or sidebar area. These options are found in the style options panel of the theme. To place social icons within the theme, please use the follow instructions.

1. Insert the following code in the Sidebar area within RapidWeaver:
<a class= "social" href= "#">f</a>
2. Replace the # with the page URL of your social icon.

3. Replace the letter f with the corresponding symbol of the social icon of your choice using the chart below.

4. Highlight the entire code and click Clear Formatting, then Ignore Formatting under Format at the top left of your screen. (For multiple social icons, repeat the above steps for each desired icon.)
