As with Splash, Percept allows content pages to be either standard RapidWeaver, or Stacks pages into which you can add any content of your choice, including the Section and Slider stacks that come with the theme. And just in case my review in March was unclear, this means that YES, with the help of the Modular Header and Footer pages, by using the Modular Conditional stack, you can add any stack you wish to the default RW pages such as the photo album or blog.
Percept is great looking theme. One, or more Percept stacks are inserted into your Header page. By using the Condition stack, you are able to define which Header is then inserted into each page and the Percept stack gives you the possibility of configuring each of the inserted Headers. The same is, of course, true for the Footer page. I mentioned the Modular Section and Slider stacks in March, so I don't need to go over them again.
A lot of thought has gone into Percept and I have to say that I'm more impressed by it than I was by Splash, partly because it is straightforward without the gimmicks. It's ideal for the presentation of photographs or portfolios without the distraction of the permanently moving wave that Splash displays.
Percept comes with a starter project that already contains the necessary Header and Footer pages and is already set to use .php as the default setting. PHP is necessary to ensure that the Header and Footer are loaded into each of your pages. The starter project makes the initial setup a little simpler.
If you want to use the RapidWeaver default pages alongside Stacks pages, but wish to customise them, 1LD's Modular concept is a great way to go. Percept is just the second of, hopefully, many themes that are yet to come. As I said last time it doesn't have the steep learning curve that some frameworks have; it can be used with standard RW pages or with Stacks pages, but it is flexible enough to build even the most complicated page.
