Multiple issues with RW 8.1.3

(Thomas Roegner) #9

Yep. Just read your blog post. Interesting that the devs (=you) have to fiddle with all these small and detailled things like the appearence of buttons and symbols “only” because Apple decided to have a dark mode (which I don’t use at all, never was a friend of dark UIs not even in photoshop or similar programs). And takes you days to get it how you want it. Kinda like us RW users trying to build a site which looks perfect – in a much more coarse way…

Yes… updating to 8.1.3 was a disaster… wanted to relink all these jpeg files… I complied… then errors loading page - site never loaded, could not a view single page. Thank God for time machine and downgrade version. Again what a disaster. Not happy…

@capetom Thanks! Could you do a few more things for me…

  1. Take a screenshot of the General preferences in the Photos app
  2. Send me RapidWeaver’s logs
    • Make sure RapidWeaver is closed
    • Launch RapidWeaver
    • Create a new project
    • Open the Site Resources window
    • Choose Photos
    • Wait for ~30 seconds or so
    • Choose “Copy Support Logs” from RapidWeaver’s Help menu
    • Email the file to with a subject of “FAO: Tom #3025

Hello and thank you tom.

As to #1. I sent the screen shot in a support request email and I think you already saw it. Let me know if you would still like me to sent the project file. I am on a location shoot and will not be back into the studio until Monday.

As to #2 Great thank you.

As to #3. Ok I’ll hang on. Thanks.

As to #4. YaY! FABULOUS! Thank you muchly.

There’s a new beta up that fixes a bunch of things!

@Julian @capetom Could you give it a try and let me know if you’re still having problems.

(Julian) #15

Thank you so much for grinding on this. I’ll be back in the office Monday and will fire it up and see where the smoke leaks out. :smiley:
And will let you know.
Again thank you so so much.

I’m getting tired, and gun-shy, of hitting the update button and then spending hours getting things back the way they were (Time Machine). Thinking about WordPress …

Tom, you nailed it!
I just tested 20641b and all the issues I was having seem to be fixed. To it…

#1. Saves are now working -and working faster than ever before!
#2. Photo Album thumbnail size is now working as it should.
#3. Non-issue. Just a lack of documentation.
#4. The odd quirk of placing first file in a sequence at the end has been fixed. YaY!

As far as I can tell this version fixes all the bugs introduced in previous versions and also addresses a minor issue that I’ve had for years.

Thank you so much Tom and the whole development team. You ROCK!!!

Hi Tom
installed 8.1.3 and since then have lost all links to resource files. Using Rapidcart pro
Any help would be appreciated

(Tom Bradley) #20

Hey @gavtanner, would you be able to send your project file to with a subject of “FAO: Tom #3029”.

Also, have you tried the 8.1.4 beta to see if it solves the problem?


(Gavin Tanner) #21

Hi Tom
File is on the way. Its a large file
Thank you

(Gavin Tanner) #22

File is 40MB. seems to big to email.
Any ideas to send to you

(Doug Bennett) #23

Best bet would be to use something like Dropbox, and Email a link to the file.

(Gavin Tanner) #24

thank you

(Tom Bradley) #25

@gavtanner Thanks for sending your project in! I’ve taken a look and it appears that this is a problem with the RapidCart Pro plugin.

When you first opened the project with 8.1.3 I imagine you were presented with a window about missing resources, asking you to re-link them. If you re-linked the images and they’re all visible in RapidWeaver’s resource browser then it’s most likely a problem in RapidCart.

Have you contacted the developers of RapidCart about the problem?


(Gavin Tanner) #26

Hi Tom

Firstly thank you for looking at this for me.
After 2 days of work i have finally sorted this problem out. To resolve it i have installed RW8.1.4 and deleted every resource and re-linked them in the resources panel. I also had to remove all links in RapidCart to the resources and reinstate them as well. Then republished the complete website.
It appears to be back working ok but i am still going through thorough testing of every page to ensure all is ok.
Thanks again for your input.
Much appreciated

(Tom Bradley) #27

Ah man that sounds laborious, I’m glad you got it working though!

It might be worth forwarding your project to the RapidCart devs just in case there is a problem at their end.
