I’ve had issues with the organization of my stacks in RW6 for some time… updates don’t replace existing stacks, multiple versions of the stacks stay with a bracketed release number (or ?) behind the stack in the app support folder… but things don’t seem to be where they belong…
Not sure how it started, but I cam across it when updates notices wouldn’t go away after installing update… then they started to collect in the update window… i.e. 4, 5 12 instances of “Stack X has an update”. At some point in the past year or two, something wasn’t updating or showing up… so I think I moved things from the “proper” folder that wasn’t working to the “improper one” that did work. More on that below.
But… the program and all the stacks worked. so I left it.
Now… am trying to upgrade to 7… stacks did not import at all… only “system” stacks came across. All other plugins/themes came across fine.
Pretty sure this is because original stacks were in wrong place in RW6 application support folders…
They are not in
which is where I think they are supposed to be… rather they are in…
com.realmacsoftware.rapidweaver6>data>library>applicationsupport>Rapidweaver>.updatechecker>"big long string of numbers and letters>stacks.
As noted… they work… if I put them back in the other folder… no work…
Anyway… that was then… trying to get to now.
Stacks didn’t import when i was setting up RW7, so have located all the stacks in folder, open RW7 and then double-click stacks to install them… is working great… figure I’m effectively cleaning up the app support process as they seem to be in a cleaner location than they were.
But… some stacks not organizing properly by developer.
For example, FormSnap… lots of stacks… all version 2.x… but some go in Yabdab section, others go in Unknown section.
Next, not a glitch, but something I would like to manage if possible, some freestack stacks are listed under “Blueball Design”, some under “Charlie Lockhart, Blueball Desgin” and some under another developer string.
Is there any way to manage the “Developer tab” or whatever it is that is controlling this?
Or is it something related to the confusing bunch of hoohaa referenced at the top of this opus?
Seems like things are working ok… but I’d just like to get it all cleaned up and coordinated.
Thanks for any comments/advice… hope I didn’t keep anyone up late with the word count!
