This from Greg about Weaverpix:
I just updated RW on Catalina. Stacks is not installed. It is present in my Application Support file, but I don’t know how to get it back into the Preferences under the Stacks tab, so I guess I can go download it again on the page.
I hit find out more and was brought to the stacks page and it appears I am suppose to pay another $49.95 for Stacks.rapidweaverplugin
How do I fix this mess?
Don’t worry, both Stacks 3 and Stacks 4 are Catalina compatible. In fact all our plugins are.
There is absolutely nothing to buy to get Catalina compatible.
If you already own a license to Stacks 4 then just go to the Stacks page, click the big Download button, and follow the installation instructions, and you’re good to go.
If you’re still using Stacks 3, that’s OK too. At the bottom of every page on our site is a link to our plugin archive of all the older versions. Just click through to the Stacks archive page and download the latest Stacks 3. I think it’s v3.6.8 – it’s Catalina compatible too.
And just to be clear, we will never charge a fee just to fix bugs or make our software work with the latest OS.
Stacks is made by me and my wife. That’s it. And just like you we hate companies that pull sleazy stuff like that. Since Stacks launched 11 years ago we’ve charged only three times, and always when we added a ton of new features.
Make sure to update any of our other plugins too. Yep. All free updates for Catalina.
This is exactly why so many people love not just your stacks Isaiah but YourHead as a company. Honesty. Quality. Humility. Integrity.
anyone have a link for SiteMap 3.2? That is the only plugin that i am having issues with on Catalina (still have 3.1.1 installed).
I believe it still may be in beta: Blocks and Flow and Accordion and …
There is a link to the beta of Sitemap 3.2 on Isaiah’s Slack channel (the link to that is also in the topic I linked above)
I have yet to upgrade to Catalina and might do it soon, maybe after 10.15.1 is released. I think most of my plugins are fine except FormLoom is still version 3 for me. Also I’m still running RapidWeaver 7 too. Anyone know if RW7 runs okay in Catalina?
I just haven’t been doing a lot of web work in the last year or 2 to justify upgrading anything, but if it’s an issue with compatibility with Catalina then I’ll have to bite the bullet.
Matt from Ecwid here. We just updated the Ecwid plugin. It now should work fine with MacOS Catalina. Sorry for keeping you waiting.
Since I have upgraded to 8.4, the Side Bar has become intermittent. Mostly, the data I have there appear in edit mode and I cannot add data to the side bar. When I close rapid weaver and reopen it, the side bar info shows up for maybe one or two pages, then goes away.,
I have the latest update of Both Rapid Weaver 8.4 and Stacks on a MacBook Pro (mid 2012) with macOS Catalina V10.15
@rob great, I’ll update the post!
Thank you for all your hard work Issiah!
““anyone have a link for SiteMap 3.2? That is the only plugin that i am having issues with on Catalina (still have 3.1.1 installed).””
Same problem !
I think that might still be a beta version (3.2). Yourhead usually post beta links on their slack channel.
The last post I found on slack:
I’d try downloading the latest production version first.
No this is the version 3.1.1
Most work OK but a critical plugin for me - Sitemap Pro, does not work.
I keep checking daily but nothing yet. It would be good to hear a status update so at least I know what to expect.
In the meantime I have to use it in my VM but that is a pain.
The beta info:
Hey SiteMap fans, I’ve got a brand new beta build for you. And it’s not just your run of the mill tiny update or little patch for Catalina Notarization – no this one has some big under-the-hood bugfixing happening…
… which is exactly why we need to do some beta testing.
If you’d like to run in through it’s paces, grab it, install it, and don’t be afraid to jump back to the current release version (you can get that on the YourHead archive – which is linked at the bottom of every page on our website)
SiteMap v3.2.0 beta 1
Release Notes: http://yourhead.com/appcast/RW6/beta/SiteMap/release_notes_3.2.0b1_1201/
Same error occurs for me with the new beta…
It seems different people are getting different results.
Perhaps someone who is experiencing this problem could contact Cristi @girlcarew at the YourHead support page and find out if there is a link to a version that’s signed. If you get one might post it here.
Otherwise you you’re just going to have to wait for @isaiah to get better.
