I recently upgraded to El Capitan. My two Rapid Weaver websites disappeared as far as my being able to work on them and update them. I was told I needed to upgrade Rapid Weaver so last night I purchased Rapid Weaver 7. Now how do I reaccess my two websites? Mickio
Micki - don’t worry: it’s highly unlikely that you have lost your Project files
Provided that you brought over all your documents and data when you installed/upgraded to El Capitan…
More likely that - since you haven’t updated any RW Project files yet to work in the new (RW 7) format - RW itself isn’t recognizing them yet.
Suggest first locating your two RW Project files in the Finder; and then following these upgrade instructions. Good luck!
Where do I find the files in the Mac? I always accessed them directly through RapidWeaver whenever I opened it. Thanks for helping me with a reply. Micki
One long term aim for you could well be to organize your user account in such a way that you do know where they are. Many of us keep a ‘Sites’ directory at the root level of our home directory and save and store all RW project files there.
First, though, either launch Spotlight (single-click on the magnifying glass icon at the top right of your desktop’s task bar), or a Finder window corresponding to the folder where you think the RapidWeaver Project file is hiding (e.g. Documents) and look for files of type .rw or rw6 for RapidWeaver 7 and/or 6 files respectively.
Possibly simpler would be to use Spotlight to locate the RW Project file by the name you originally gave it… e.g. ‘MyFirstWebsite’, or ‘MySistersShoeSite’ etc.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. That worked. The spotlight and the .rw. In case you can’t already tell, I am EXTREMELY grateful. Micki at Grateful Steps
Any time, Micki - well done!
