A nice custom site search is difficult to implement. Most website simply piggyback on search engines such as Google or DuckDuckGo. However, Searchpath.io came on to the scene earlier this year and I think its pretty cool. It’s a freemium search service that lets you implement fast and simple search directly onto your website.
I am releasing a FREE Searchpath Stack so that you can easily integrate and customize Searchpath into your RapidWeaver websites.

The out of the box float stacks are great. However, they have there limitations. I find that I want to sometime add data above the text area that will be flush at the top with the floating content. Floaty makes that possible! It also adds responsive support so that the content still looks great on all devices. The content will be displayed in a single column on iPhone (or similar width) mobile devices.
Floaty is available for only 95¢. For more details and demos, head over to the Floaty product page.
The Safari Extension for Kiwi received its first update today. The keyboard shortcut was changed to be shift-ctrl-p. This will prevent some accidental triggering of the extension that users were experiencing with the original shortcut.
You can obtain your update via Safari Preferences. By default Safari will automatically update all extensions.
You can also re-download the extension from Kiwi Services on Github.
I have been spending the last few days adding some polish to my Paperless automation tool that I released a couple of weeks ago. If you peruse through the release notes, you will see that I’ve added a couple small features and fixed some bugs. However, those weren’t the biggest changes…
New User’s Group
In an effort to promote user interaction, there is a new Paperless User’s Group. This groups runs on Glassboard which is an awesome way to communicate with groups of people. Think of it as a cross between a chat room and a forum.
The Paperless documentation has been restructured into a wiki instead of one huge confusing page. It should now be much easier to discover the tools functionality and find exactly what you are looking for.
There is also a new quickie video overview that will help you get jumpstarted.
Lowering the Entry Level
My biggest request from user’s was that they really wanted to use Paperless, however, they could not get over the technical hurdle of getting it all installed. So I started a side project that is a really simple Paperless Installer. If you can click a few buttons, you can get Paperless installed now. Its that easy!
There is also a video that goes through the entire installation process step-by-step.
