Edit your RapidWeaver site content from anywhere.
Dropkick CMS is a powerful and lightweight content management system that allows you or your clients to edit your RapidWeaver site from a desktop, mobile or tablet. Completely white-labelled, secure and with user-management features, Dropkick CMS is the remote site editor you were waiting for.
Easy to edit
Easily add text, videos, images, lists and so on using the included WYSIWYG editor. Stylise your content with a familiar and beautiful user interface and add content in any language you can type.
Quick to setup
Installed in minutes and supported by 5+ videos, you’ll find this quick to roll out and even quicker to make sections of your site editable form the web. See videos of Dropkick CMS in action >>
Categories to group editable content
Create categories to group the editable sections on a page to make the back end more organised and streamline. Drag and drop editable elements into groupings and unclutter that list of CMS elements that previously was an endless list.
Edit font styles and colours
By default all content automatically matches your theme’s font size, font type and colour. But now you can override this from the WYSIWYG editor and style to your heart’s content. Clients will rejoice with more fine tuning control. Things might get messy.
Upload and manage your files from all your devices and across Dropkick
Upload files with simple drag and drop, preview uploaded images, videos and audios and filter and organise them across folders in your new and neat file management. Reuse them in later CMS areas and add not only media files but also PDFs, documents and other file types. You can also edit photos within DropkickCMS such as crop and ratio size, special effects and other hocus pocus, without needing to open the image in Photoshop. More media management power to you and your clients.
Stack or not
No coding knowledge is required to use Dropkick. Add an editable content section and paste in the page tag into your RapidWeaver project using the included Stack, an HTML stack, your RapidWeaver sidebar, or any other Stack or section you can add content.
Works with any RapidWeaver project or themes from RW5+ and runs on HTML pages. No need to convert to PHP pages.
Pay once and use forever
No monthly fees with this CMS and no external hosting needed. Host on your own servers (or your client’s) and just add to your current RapidWeaver project files, where they already are. Keep it all in-house.
Unlimited content areas
Make one page editable to a client or parts of a page. Add multiple editable content areas on a page or across multiple pages. Want to make the Extra Content section editable but not the body? No problem. Slice up your site and give clients access where you let them.
Dropkick is completely white-labelled. No mention of Dropkick anywhere after logging in and you can add your own logo to the login window and header to personalise your CMS service to clients.
SEO and clean code
No extra code or classes added to your site’s content to keep it clean, fast and optimised for search engines. Anything you add in Dropkick will be the same or cleaner than if added direct into RapidWeaver.
Dropkick keeps everything in sync at all times. No data loss occurs, even if you republish your RapidWeaver project, add a new page or add more content around the editable areas. All will be in-sync and up to date.
User management over three levels
Create Admins, site Editors and Users as you wish. Add multiple staff or client members and charge them accordingly if you offer this service. If a client’s staff member leaves, just delete or disable that user instantly with a check. No need to mess around. Admins control everything, Editors can create pages and embed in RapidWeaver projects, whilst Users can just edit the content. Simples all round.
Dropkick sites are secure and safe to brute force attacks and passwords are stored as hashes and encrypted in your database. There’s a “forgot your password” reset link built-in to save time and issue account resets securely. Dropkick is also compatible with SSL secure servers if you want to add https:// to your domain.
Changes happen in realtime and are instantaneous. Edit, save and refresh the browser and boom! It’s there. You can temporarily disable content and it disappears (as if by magic) if there’s panic in the office or if a time-offer changes.
Dropkick is fully responsive and works on mobiles, desktops and tablets. Edit on the move and from anywhere you can get an internet connection. Great for companies operating from smartphones on the move and for clients who don’t want to FTP in to their site.
