Rapidweaver 7 - missing/malfunction plugins and Malware warning on Mac

I opened Rapidweaver 7 (latest version) to edit a web site today, and was surprised to get a few messages as follows:

Message 1:

“lockdown.rapidweaverplugin” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.
macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware.
Rapidweaver 7 created this file on an unknown date

(in the window, options are to move to trash or cancel - I chose cancel)

Message 2:

“Stacks.rapidweaverplugin” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.
macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware.
RapidWeaver 7 created this file on an unknown date.

(in the window, options are to move to trash or cancel - I chose cancel)

Message 3:
RapidWeaver failed to load some plugins
LockDown: Couldn’t obtain plugin principal class
Stacks: Couldn’t obtain plugin principal class
Would you like to check for updates?

(Options: cancel or Update plugins, I chose the latter)

Message 4:

Unable to load all pages in “My Website”.
You will not be able to publish the content for those pages.
Missing plugins: Stacks


My web site is completely unpublishable now, since it is loaded with stacks plugin features.

So a few questions:

  1. I am 100% unsure as to why this suddenly happened, any ideas?
  2. I am not sure how to download the stacks plugin to reinstall it without paying again.
  3. Same goes for the lockdown plugin.

I am desperate for some assistance here!

Thanks very much!

You updated to Catalina.
Both plugins have updates available. goto http://yourhead.com site

You can down load both, You can lookup the serial numbers at the bottom of each page.

[SOLVED] Sort of…

Of course, it was the Catalina upgrade that messed things up. I had to upgrade to Stacks 4 from Stacks 2. Unfortunately, I don’t think the Lockdown plugin works anymore.
If anyone has any comments on this, feel free to make them. On looking more closely, there seem to be a few issues like this mentioned in the support site.

Thanks!

It’s not on the ‘Plugins archive’ list but if you go to the product page and click ‘Free Download’, it looks like that is the latest version (3.1.1): http://yourhead.com/lockdown

All of our plug-ins received updates for Catalina, including Lockdown. All these minor updates are free and available on our website.

You can always get the latest versions of all of our software from our website. Just go to http://yourhead.com , download the plugins you need, and double-click to install.

The direct link to LockDown is: http://yourhead.com/lockdown/
