I have made my website using rapidWeaver 7 and it’s been working fine for the past few months.
I wanted to make a change on one of my pages by adding a new button and resource and the entire layout changes to vertical from horizontal when I preview it.
In the edit mode it looks fine, everything is horizontally stacked like it should be. But when I preview it all my links and images are vertical and much bigger in size and not useful at all. Even without any changes and opening my old saved project the preview is not as per the edit.
I’m using 7.5.5 with the new Big Sur update.
Is there any fix for this? Am I doing something wrong?
Since it does the same thing when you preview in the browser, i’d guess it’s something to do with the theme or other styling.
It’s about impossible to help you out here without seeing a page live on the webserver. The screenshots look like you are using a yourhead 3-column stack on the home page and for some reason, the 3 columns look like it’s stacking horizontally like it’s on a small(mobile) screen.
I understand not wanting to publish the site with this current issue, but for you to get help with this you’ll need to publish at least one ”test” page for someone to look at the code.
Here’s how you can proceed to put out a test page.
Duplicate the home page since it shows the issue
Rename the new page folder to something like test
Uncheck the box to show in navigation
Uncheck the boxes to index and follow the page
Publish the single page
Once you have the test page published then you should be able to post a link to that page so people can review and help.
But if I publish that page what happens to my current website which is online? I don’t want to mess that up since I won’t be able to go back…
All the changes I’m making are to the original project itself…
Sorry I’m asking too many questions I don’t know what happens otherwise
If you followed steps 1-4 you are creating a new page that’s not in navigation and not being indexed in a new directory(folder) called test.
The only way to get to it would be to have the URL. I don’t know your websites address but it would be something like //https://yourwebsite.com/test/.
Once the test is done you can delete the page from the project and delete the directory on the webserver.
Well, I always assume that people have backups and have a good backup process in place and use it. With something reliable and easy to use like TimeMachine included with the OS, I just make that assumption.
If you don’t have a backup process in place you should get that figured out ASAP. In the meantime, you can always duplicate the project file manually by right-clicking it in finder.
(This might be the same issue as this post @isaiah)
I can verify this is a bug Stacks 4.1x when using RW7.
@isaiah: this one is easy to reproduce. Simple launch RW7 and put a two column or any of the column stacks onto a page. Preview the page (either in preview or a browser) and you will get a 404 not found on the stacks.css file: http://127.0.0.1:50773/rw_common/plugins/stacks/stacks.css?rwcache=627671503
I haven’t tested this with a published site myself, but it looks like it works upon publishing per this post:
It’s a problem with RW7 Preview mode (in the app or in the browser – doesn’t make much difference) – but it should not be a problem in edit mode or the published page. RW7 Preview has a unique folder structure that Stacks 4.1 isn’t accounting for correctly and didn’t get picked up in my automatic testing. Sorry about that. I should be able to correct this in v4.1.3
