RapidWeaver 8.1 Public Beta 4

Hello Weavers,

This is the forth public beta for RapidWeaver 8.1, as well as fixing up various bugs, we’ve also added support for multiple selection in the Resources Manager!!!

Please Note: This is a beta and as such is not final and may contain bugs .

What’s New in 8.1?

  • Dark Mode for Mojave now supported
  • Added Amazon S3 as a Publishing Destination

  • Fixed an issue with multiple buy buttons showing
  • Removed the javascript that was removing line breaks from the Offroad theme

  • Numerous other fixes and enhancements to boring (or too secret to mention yet)
  • [DEV] Added a method to plugins to mark a page as changed without reloading the preview #2781

While we feel this build is stable enough to use on a daily basis, please be aware it is beta and is not final .

Make sure you back up any mission-critical projects before using them with this version, and yes, you can run this alongside other versions of RapidWeaver should you wish.

I understand that this is a beta and will probably contain bugs, but I would still like to download RapidWeaver 8.1 beta 4

If you do find an issue please report it here on this thread.

Happy Weaving!



The theme selection window does not show thumbnails.

Just wondering, when you update via RapidWeaver with betas enabled all we get is a build number, no beta number. Could you list the build numbers here as well so we know if we have the right one or not??

It’s Version 8.1 (20293b) :+1:

Hmm, they seems to have thumbnails for me…

Version 8.1 (20293b)

With other themes also does not show.

P.S. Mac OS 10.11.6.

[Already reported by email but not had a response yet]

New theme controls introduced in RW8 (e.g. sliders and number boxes) are unresponsive for me on 10.13.5. This bug can be replicated in the new themes shipped with RW8 and third party ones. RW preview refreshes but changes to theme settings never take effect and are stuck on the defaults. The issue occurs in both the Master Style and in the Page Inspector.

Example -> Engineer theme --> Increase font size to 26px - it remains stuck at 18px. :thinking:

I reverted back to RW 8.0.3 and all is working fine again.


Dark Mode in Preview Page with…

Thanks, will get this fixed also!

I have moved some projects from .rw7 to .rw8. (all these projects are Foundation projects)

All these projects have the same issue: Images I linked from the image stack (Foundation) to the resources folder have lost their paths. It is not possible to relink these images. The path will be shown in the link tool, I can choose the path but nothing happens. Only images of the homepage will be linked correctly, on all other pages they have lost their path.

All projects I moved from RapidWeaver 7 to 8 are affected. And it’s an issue with the 8.1 Beta (Build 20293b). RW 8.0.3 doesn’t has the problem.
