FAQs.

Writer Stack

Q. What is the difference between the Writer stack and the Writer Advanced stacks?

The Writer stack adopts the color styles of your RapidWeaver theme. Its HUD settings provide only one color style for the Writer blog RSS subscription link. This is the best and most simple option for those who do not need a custom color scheme for their Writer blog.

The Writer Advanced stack allows you to control the color styles for all Writer blog layout elements using built-in color style HUD settings. This stack is for RapidWeaver users who want to control their Writer blog colors instead of relying on their RapidWeaver theme’s default colors.

Q. Do I need to republish my RapidWeaver website each time I write a new blog post in my Writer web app account?

No! Your website's Writer blog will update automatically when you write a new blog post in your Writer web app account. You do not need to re-publish your RapidWeaver website. This is why Writer is so awesome. Everything is automated for you.

Q. How do I download Writer Stack updates?

We will email you when there is an update available. You can always download the latest version in your Writer web app account at My Account > Download Writer Stack.

Q. Will Writer display in RapidWeaver Edit Mode?

Q. Why is my Writer blog empty in Rapidwever Preview Mode?

Q. Why do my Writer blog links not work in RapidWeaver Preview Mode?
