If the above solution didn’t help – or you don’t even have a custom location for your addons folder – then I’d recommend trying a few basic tests to see if we can get back to something that reliable – and work from there to determine the cause of the error. It’s always easier to start at a working place and add complications until things break – than vice versa.
- Start by removing ALL your addons. Yep, every single one.
- Restart RapidWeaver and create a brand new file.
This should, in theory, work very well. This is plain vanilla RW. You should be able to create a new file, add pages to the file, save and preview without any errors or any problems.
Verify this assumption. Give it a 15 second play to make sure. Also triple check that Stacks isn’t loading and there are no themes installed.
If your plugins/themes are still loading – then the addons folder you cleared out is not the one that RW is using. Use RW to open the addons folder (Cmd-Opt-7) and clear that one out too.
If after clearing out all the addons things still seem broken in some way – contact RealmacSoftware. Those cases are very rare and probably outside of what forum folks can help with. They’ll need to collect more detailed info about your system.
Assuming things work with the vanilla install…
Download Stacks from scratch from the YourHead website: http://yourhead.com
Install it into your addons folder by hand (unzip it first, then just drag it into the folder).
Now you should have RapidWeaver with Stacks.
Don’t try to open your files yet (they probably need all the 3rd party stacks anyway)
Does this work? Can you save, preview add a few stacks?
If this is broken, then please contact YourHead Support. Like above this situation is rare and Christi will collect some info about your system and we’ll go from there.
Assuming this does work, add your Stacks back in. Does this break things? If so we probably need to go through the effort of finding the culprit stack.
If this works, then add back your other plugins (only the ones that you actually use – please leave out any addons that you don’t need – they all add complication and increase the chance of bugs and errors).
If this breaks things, then add them in one at a time until you’ve found the culprit. Hopefully there aren’t too many plugins.
Let me know where in the process the problems come back – and we’ll work from there to see if we can find a solution.
