New In Version 4.0.0

This is a major theme update for the Rainbow theme. Pretty-much the entire theme has been re-worked. This version is now easier to use, compatibility with different web browsers has been improved and several new features introduced that users have requested. This update is being provided as a free update for existing users and incorporates the following changes:

  • The rainbow strip and navigation bar at the top can be toggled between scrolling or sticky
  • Desktop users are now presented with the menu in 'drop-down' configuration
  • Simplified the choice of settings shown, to make the theme easier to use. More aspects of the theme are now automated and content-aware
  • Fixes some issues whereby the menu might not work reliably on some touch devices
  • Improvements to the positioning and colouring of Font Awesome icons placed in navigation links
  • Changed the location of some ExtraContent containers
  • The mobile toggle menu can now be floated left or right more easily and the option exists for desktop to use the mobile menu too
  • Added the ability to set a banner image behind the site title / slogan and control its positioning
  • Updated Bootstrap to version 4.1.1
  • Updated Font Awesome Icons to version 5.0.13
  • jQuery is now called locally, from within the theme
  • Moved all Javascript calls to the end of the page, to promote faster page loading
  • Tidied and re-indended the index.html file, to make future edits easier
  • Minified the main scripts.js file
  • Added a custom.js file to the theme, for the benefit of users wanting to write their own Javascript
  • Greatly expanded the choice of font face options available
  • Container clearers now use classes instead of inline CSS

Rainbow is now GDPR compliant. All Font Awesome icons, jQuery Javascript and embedded font faces are stored within the theme contents; with no links or calls to external locations. The fonts listed all support Latin extended characters.

The Rainbow update is provided as a free update for all existing users. You can get the update via automatic updates in RapidWeaver / Waterfall or download this latest version from your Paddle account.


Minimalism gives a professional, clean impression to your visitors.

The RAINBOW theme has a side and drop down menu. Down and right arrows show the menu-items with sublevels for clear navigation through your website. The menu pops open when the menu button (or text) in the upper right corner (or optional in the upper left corner) is hovered or (optional) clicked. Hovering (or optional) clicking the close-button hides it again. By default the menu is closed. Optional you can start with the menu open.

The RAINBOW theme has a horizontal drop down menu on your desktop, and a side- and drop down menu on your mobile. On your mobile device the menu pops open when the menu button (or text) in the upper right or left corner is hovered or clicked. By default the menu is closed.

The theme has many ExtraContent areas and Font Awesome Icons built-in.

A warm alternative

Professional doesn't have to mean plain and corporate. With texture, this theme gives visitors a softer impression. I get along with Henk's themes very well; style settings are logical and there is a clean functionality behind this theme too.
