A few things you could try if you experience some problems...



I must say I’ve seen only very few problems with RapidWeaver so far. If you run into a problem which is not yet listed here and found a working solution to it please post a comment at the bottom of this page to make this list more complete and help others. For questions use the
forum instead since I will not answer the comments here. Thank you!

Chapter 1: The changes I made don’t display on the web when published

Chapter 1: The changes I made don’t display on the web when published


If a change doesn't display to you in the browser after you published and uploaded the site it mostly is because the old version of the page is cached (memorized) by your browser. Thus simply emptying the cache of the browser (Open Safari, choose Safari from the menu and go to Empty Cache) and reloading the page should display the changes.

If the changes still don’t display in the browser you may go to File, choose "Re-Publish All Files", then empty the cache again, reload.

Chapter 2: I added some HTML Code to my page but it doesn’t work when published


First make sure you added the code to the page, selected it, went to Format, HTML and did choose Code.

Also note that some codes don’t work in RapidWeaver’s Preview mode but only once published.

If the code needs some additional files to be uploaded to your server make sure you uploaded them to the right location.

Make sure the code is correct. If you’ve taken the code from this site it most probably is right or you may have deleted an important quote or apostrophe or bracket or anything else by accident so you may want to try to re-start with it.

If there still is no improvement be aware that some themes may screw up your code. As Ashley pointed out
on my forum the Blocks theme replaced spaces in the code with

&nbsp

while publishing (not in RapidWeaver itself) hence breaking the code. And probably also made other changes to it. You may want to try to add the code post-publishing (after you published) with one of the methods described on this page. The page was written for iWeb but works for RapidWeaver as well.

If nothing works you may post on my
forum not in the comments below since I will not answer the comments.
