Newest version re-introduces an old problem

Please provide a few details in the following format so we can help you as quickly as possible!

RapidWeaver Version: 6.2.3 (14912)
System Version: 10.10.4
Hardware: 13-Inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, 2.7GHz Processor, 128 GB SSD Storage, 8GB Memory.

(Explain the issue here.)

With v6.2.3 changing one page causes RW to publish many, most, some times all, pages/files randomly.

Changing one page sometimes flags all or some pages as changed. And there is no global “mark all pages as unchanged” toggle so on a large site the process of “mark page as unchanged” each unchanged page is time-consuming. There is no way to select multiple pages at once and mark them as unchanged either.

Yes I have republished all files. No there is no Stacks v2 or v3 pages.

Expected Result:
(Explain what you think should of happened here.)

It would be so good to get this issue worked out once and for all.

Yes, I’m finding the same thing.

At first - because I was concentrating on publishing a FormSnap Stack, I assumed it was multiple PHP elements.

But I’ve also noticed that at each publish RW 6.3.3 does seem to like to be… thorough.

I too am having similar issues. Seems since Stacks 3.

I noticed this too just recently. And since I’ve been running Stacks 3 for about a year – I’m going to make a wild guess that it’s not Stacks 3 (to be perfectly honest I don’t know that for a fact).

But I did notice there is a new settings was added to RW about the time this behavior cropped up. I posted about this coincidence here:

P.S. I’ve also submitted this bug to the folks at RMS – but it’s the weekend and as a favor to our friend Nik who had a tough week ( – let’s maybe let this one slide until Monday. thx

Thank you for the tip, Isaiah.
It is worth a try. I’ll post the results once this upload is finished.
As I am NOT running stacks on this large site and this has been a problem that has come and gone on various RW 6.x releases I have to agree that my suspicion is that is it is something they are (or really need to be) working on at RM.

When I searched the forums for info on how to “mark all pages as UNCHANGED”, I came to this topic. Seems like when I make a change to one page, suddenly several if not all pages get the “BLUE DOT”. I thought that there used to be a choice under Edit to mark page as “unchanged” but all I see now is “mark all pages as changed” and I don’t want to do that. In the Prefs for RW I have both “clear page status when exporting and publishing” checked.

Please correct this problem in RW7. I am using RW 6.3.7, Stacks 3.


When you add a new page, all pages are marked as changed.
When you change the name of a page, all pages are marked as changed.
When you edit the content in a page, nothing happens, only this page appears changed.
It’s all right, I think.

Any change that effects navigation will make all pages as changed, (adding a new page, change a page name) also if you are using partials, any change to a partial will mark any page that uses that partial as changed.

Yes @Oscar, all those things happen as they should but what I can’t find (and I’m sure it used to be a choice under edit), is to mark any or all pages as UNCHANGED. Has that option disappeared or am I not looking in the right place for it.

I don’t want to have to “republish all files” in order to get rid of the blue dots.


I am able to right click a ‘changed’ page and have the option to Mark as Unchanged. I don’t know that you can batch unchange a range of pages but one at a time seems to be an option.

@bpequine @jabostick

In the file menu you can mark as changed / unchanged all pages and resources with one click.
Unchanged with the alt/option button when the file menu is open.

@jabostick, thank you. I did finally discover that when I went to publish.

Thank you for reminding me about that option key thing. I tend to forget to think about that when I want to reverse something. It makes sense now. Leave it to the RW folks to make our wishes come true.
