I am just coming back to RapidWeaver after some years’ break.
I am using RW 8.8.1 using Rosetta on an M1 Mac mini with OS 11.2.3 (Big Sur). I have found that Rosetta is necessary for non-Universal plugins like PlusKit and Accordion.
But I have run into a brick wall when trying to install my existing stacks. I have a prodigious array of stacks — I am dismayed at what a spendthrift I was — and I find that their ‘Dates Created’ are mostly between 2012 and 2015. (Can stacks be “vintage”?)
When I double-click to install them, I get the reassuring dialog telling me “The stack was installed successfully.” But of course they haven’t been. Upon some further fossicking around, I see that my double-clicking has “installed” them in
I am guessing that this is where a previous version of RW used for stacks, because the current RW seems to have no interest in this location.
This brings up a couple of questions:
Do all my “vintage” stacks need to be updated to be useful?
Or…Would it be worth trying to manually install them by copying them to what appears to be the current default home for stacks:
</Users/myhomefolder/Library/Group Containers/P97H7FTHWN.com.realmacsoftware.rapidweaver/Library/Application Support/Addons/Plugins>
…or would this be just wasted effort?
I am hopeful of finding an elegant (easy) answer to this quandary as I have soooo many of these old stacks from many different developers.
