This is a re-build using the Rapid Platform for demonstration

Learn more

Below is a full re-build of the WordPress.org home page done entirely in the WYSIWYG editor without touching the HTML tab. It’s nothing more than rich text and a few Rapid Platform shortcodes. This re-build took about 5 minutes and it’s fully responsive by default.

Shortcodes used:

[rp_grid] was used six times to build the six visible columns.
[rp_list] was used three times to build the icon list.
[rp_button] was used once to build the download button.

Note: Since this re-build is essentially a site within a site, we had to override some of TheRapidPlatform.com’s core styles so that the re-build on this page matches the WordPress.org home page. We use special shortcodes [rp_style] and [rp_style_reset] for this. In most other circumstances these styles are simply part of the theme/stylesheet.

Other facts:

This page uses the default page template (index.php) in WordPress with no sidebars or widgets. Images courtesy WordPress.org.

View markup

The following markup achieves this re-build when pasted into TinyMCE’s HTML tab. It should be noted that everything in gray was generated using the TinyMCE Visual tab – no HTML was actually written by hand. We’ve grayed out any HTML that was generated by TinyMCE Visual tab to demonstrate just how little syntax is required to achieve an accurate re-build.
