RapidWeaver 8.0.1 is here!

Hot on the heels of the initial RapidWeaver 8 launch, we have the rather lovely 8.0.1 release of everybody’s favourite web design app on the Mac.

This new version fixes up a bunch of minor issues that snuck through our beta testing process. Check in-app for updates or grab it directly from here. For those of you who are curious you can take a look at the full release notes for all the details.

Full blog post here: https://blog.realmacsoftware.com/rapidweaver-8-0-1-now-available/

We’re already hard at work on making RapidWeaver 8 even better, so be sure to look out for more updates in the coming days and weeks.

Happy Weaving ya’ll!


@dan I’m getting an “Exception while exporting site” error being displayed for some themes, after installing this 8.0.1 update. I have emailed you the details and a sample theme to download and test. Hopefully something quick you can fix for 8.0.2.

We’re looking into this now, don’t worry we’ll have a fix/solution available shortly!

In the meantime you can rollback to 8.0 if this issue is affecting you: https://dl.devmate.com/com.realmacsoftware.rapidweaver8/20070/1534262337/RapidWeaver8-20070.zip


@willwood turns out this is actually an issue with your theme(s), and this error would also be seen in 8.0.

You need to specify all the files you want copying over on export, otherwise RapidWeaver can’t resolve the pathto links in your theme.

Add the highlighted line as seen in the image below to your theme.plist and your theme (ABC) should work just fine :slight_smile:

In the future we should get RapidWeaver to report these errors in a more human way, so instead say something like: “The javascript.js file couldn’t be found in the theme”.

Hope that helps!



I have a couple of observations…

  1. Text in ‘Text’ stack displays as expected in edit mode but not in Preview mode - see attached screen shots. The text does display as it should when published so clearly there’s a glitch with the Preview mode.

  2. In RW 7.x and prior, there used to be an icon at the very head of the RW window next to the project name. This would be pale if the project was not saved but bright if it was. I found this to be a very handy feature which I’d like to see replaced please.

Might be worth dropping @isaiah at YourHead an email about issue #1 as it’s in Stacks… he may know what the issue it.

We’ll get the title bar Icon back into the the next build of RapidWeaver, due out next week.

Hope that helps.

Another little bug - when I drop an image into the new “Social Tags” the URL is incorrect for the Twitter & OG tag, it is truncating the URL to just /resources/myimage.jpg

Example here -

It needs to be the entire URL to pass https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/

Hey @TimLawson - do you have any details about this text stack issue? I haven’t heard about this one before.

< sigh > A simple restart of RW fixed the issue, @isaiah < /sigh >

@TimLawson - there’s nothing better than bug that fixes itself. :wink:

that said, if you see something crop back up let me know. maybe it’s just a bug with interesting trigger that you just tripped over last time. now that you know what to look for, if it crops up you’ll notice it. :face_with_monocle:

Any suggestions so RW 8 does not upload every file in my blog every time I make a single change?

I am going to start sending ReapidWeaver the overage charges on my data fees if someone doesn’t give me a solution soon. :wink:

@sinc Thanks for the heads-up on this. Could you email your project to dan@realmacsoftware.com along with a reference to the issue and we’ll look into fixing it asap.
