Upon loading RW I noticed the alert that there were a couple of stacks updates. One of the two was Joe Workman’s Agent stack. So, of course, I upgraded. However, once I did, RW crashed every time I selected the agent stack which made it impossible for me to do any further work on my site. I submitted a ticket through Joe Workman’s Zen desk several days ago, but as of this writing, I have had no reply.
So I eventually solved the problem by using Time Machine to revert back to the previously installed version. That solved the problem.
So… I frequently shut my brain down for maintenance, so forgive me if I seem a bit slow, but I can’t see from your post where to download the stacks versions. I went to the YourHead website but I can’t find a link for it there. Isn’t RW supposed to check for the latest versions?
Upgrading to version 4.X isn’t appealing to me. Except for the publishing problems I am having, everything is working OK and past experience has given me PTUS (Post Traumatic Upgrade Syndrome)
The link I gave above (not on a line by itself http://info.yourhead.com/stacks/), just scroll down until you get to stacks 3). That page is also in the footer of every YourHead Page (YourHead Archive). Also in the footer is the link for serial number lookup, in case you need it.
I don’t know if that is going to solve the problem or not. I know Joe is going full bore with Stacks 4, but I can’t find that as a “Requirement” on his site.
His old site made things like stacks version, php versions very clear.
I always get such great response whenever I post on this forum. I downloaded the latest of V3, but I am skittish about upgrading the Agent stack until I get a reply from Joe. Thanks for your help!
Joe, I reverted to an earlier version using Time Machine. Upgrading to Stacks 4.0 will cost me $44.42 CAD. What I have now is working fine for what I need to do. Every time I upgrade something, something else stops working. This usually requires me to update those items as well. I think the software upgrade business is somewhat coercive. Imagine buying a new car, taking it in for repair, and being told that the parts are not kept in stock for more than two years, but you can upgrade to a new car with your old car trade-in. My point… people who have invested in software should be supported for older versions. At some point I will be forced to upgrade, but I will need a really good reason to do that.
