@pmjd I’m not on Weavers Space so regretfully I don’t see what gets chatted about there. Email is best. I get messages instantly to my computer or phone and normally respond within a few hours to most enquiries. Some people on these forums will testify that I was even providing support on Christmas Day morning!
@tkayoe Unfortunately I am not in a position to offer guarantees of compatibility with addons from other developers, so I don’t know what “verification” you would be seeking for a free stack?
RapidWeaver is a modular setup. There are trillions of possible combinations of addons. There are always going to be certain combinations that don’t work together. It is physically impossible to test every conceivable configuration and retest each time something new comes along or gets an update. Nor can I influence the code another add-on brings into the page.
I should also add that support for free addons is provided on a discretionary basis. Users of paid addons or those who have made a contribution always get priority support. Especially during the holidays.
I have tested MixingDeck with the updated Foundations 1.8.1 theme. It appears something has been added in an update that handicaps Modernizer. Therefore the MixingDeck player falls outside of the ‘if’ conditional statement and fails to load fully. Not an issue I could have foreseen or a problem encountered in any other theme before today.
Looks like we can forego using Modernizer if you don’t mind loosing support for older web browsers. The update has been sent out to contributors / patreons already and everyone else will get an update at a later date.
It concerns me how many other stacks that use Modernizer might be broken by this theme update. Modernizer has been used quite prolifically in the past to help your stacks work in older web browsers. There are good reasons why it is included with some stacks. It is a legitimate solution and widely regarded by many experts for solving numerous problems.
If you are building websites for paying clients, you definitely need to take a closer look at my RWSkinz system that is totally made for the job. You could easily build http://soulsenators.com/playlist1831/ with RWSkinz and save yourself a ton of time and money. I won’t hide the fact that I’m becoming concerned about how closed-off and overly complex some of these other build systems are slowly evolving into. Keep your build options open for 2019 and broaden your toolkit!
