Please note:
As of 1st January 2019, we are no longer providing free updates or coupon codes for previous purchases, including the stacks listed on this webpage. This information supersedes any previous mentions about receiving free updates. Please see this RapidWeaver discussion for details. If you have any comments about this policy, you can discuss them on the RapidWeaver forums, where somebody might be able to assist you further.
Stacks on this page are organised A - Z.
ActionHost
Version 1.1.2 developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. The stack received an extensive upgrade / update in 2017. The latest version can be found here.
AnimateIt
Version 1.1.2 developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. The stack received an extensive upgrade / update in 2017. The latest version can be found here.
ChatStack
The stack isn't compatible with the newer version of jQuery that Stacks and RapidWeaver use. Also Mozilla Foundation have since mothballed their 'labs' project, so updates to the underlying Together.js plugin aren't forthcoming any more. You should consider using another online / website chat service instead, like Zopim.
CloudNine
The plugin which CloudNine was built on failed to work in newer web browsers (like Chrome 40). Although an update was published, it was found this radically altered the underlying source code, which was found to no longer work with RapidWeaver. SoundCloud recently made a whole bunch of changes to their API; which has subsequently broken a lot more SoundCloud addons. It appears SoundCloud are wanting users to make use of the widgets they provide on the website, rather than third-party addons. If you want to create an audio playlist that you host yourself, then the Playlister 2 stack (released on 2nd November) is a brilliant upgrade path.
Conditionals
Although the stack still works perfectly for the conditional display of content in Internet Explorer 5.5 - 9, Microsoft has since discontinued support for these older web browsers. So this stack is no longer relevant to use. Most RapidWeaver users are no longer required to build websites that support older versions of Internet Explorer.
Deli
Originally developed to imitate the image / caption style that the old Deli.cio.us website used to use. Deli worked fine, but was a bit tedious to use (because it defaulted to a non-responsive state). We took the opportunity in May 2016 to totally rewrite the Deli stack and replace it with the HighLight stack. You'll find the HighLight stack easier to setup with more customisable features. HighLight also uses modern HTML5 figure / figcaption markup; which is great for search engine optimisation and website accessibility.
DropCMS v1
Originally developed to read text files you stored on Dropbox.com, and embed the content within the page. This could act as a simple content management system, letting to edit content remotely. As of 15th March 2017 Dropbox no longer support hot-linked files in public folders. DropCMS could still be relevant for use with file uploading stacks like Droplet or FileMan. The new stack (version 2) removes references to DropBox and adds options to control what happens when files are unavailable for display.
FancyCurtain and FancyIntro
Version 2.0.0 developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. The stack received an extensive upgrade / update in 2017. The new Curtains stack is available here and the latest version of FancyIntro is available here.
FancyViewr
A lightbox stack developed by Aaron Marquez, built on the FancyBox jQuery plugin. FancyViewr has incompatibility issues with Stacks 3 and jQuery 2, and the updated FancyBox script is not available under MIT license any more. FancyViewr was replaced with FancyViewer during August 2015. This newer stack is based off TopBox.

Figure
Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
FloatingContent
Version 1.2.5 developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. This stack got an enormous update in 2017 with support for features like close buttons and cookie tracking. The newer version is ideal for things like cookie popup messages and GDPR compliance in combination with CookieManager. Access the latest version of the stack here.
Hide-N-Show
Version 1.3.3 developed by Tsooj Media. The newest version of this stack is now provided for free on the ThemeFlood website, for exclusive use in ThemeFlood themes. See here.
HV Slider Stacks
Version 1.1.2 developed by Tsooj Media. The newest version of this stack is now provided for free on the ThemeFlood website, for exclusive use in ThemeFlood themes. See here. Rebranded as 'Henk's Slider'.
HV Tabs
Version 1.2.0 developed by Tsooj Media for Henk Vrieselaar and his 'HV-Tabs' theme. We understand this stack was originally bundled in older versions of the HV-Tabs theme for RapidWeaver 5. It was not sold as a separate stack for use in other themes. Tabs theme is now managed by ThemeFlood and is available to buy here. A newer tabs stack called Tabtastic was put together for use in all newer free and paid ThemeFlood theme designs and can be downloaded from the ThemeFlood stacks page.
GrayScale
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
GrayScale2
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
Image Mapper
Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. Updated in 2017 with a great many changes. See this webpage for the latest version.
ImageRoundr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
ImageSlicr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015. This stack was not working in Stacks 3 when it was last tested and may be incomplete.
InstaViewer
Instagram is now owned by Facebook and it has been announced that the Instagram Basic API will be shutdown in early 2020. Although security is cited as a reason behind this change, we are all aware that the real reason is Facebook's desire to increase ad-revenue from the platform and collect more user data. Without a method to pull Instagram content into a webpage, this effectively starves InstaViewer of content and removes its ability to function. The product page currently lists some alternative stacks to use for building user-editable galleries.
Lorem Ipsum
Version 1.2.3. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. Updated in 2017 with support for more dummy text libraries and a new user interface. See this webpage for the latest version. Renamed to LoremUtility.
News Ticker Basic and Styled
Version 2.0.2. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. Updated in 2017 with support for more dummy text libraries and a new user interface. See this webpage for the latest version.
OldBrowsr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. The functionality previously provided by this stack was included in an update to the free Conditionals stack.
PageHighlightr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. The functionality previously provided by this stack was included in an update to the free UsefulStack.
PageLoadr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. This stack no longer works with all RapidWeaver themes (some elements can sometimes display in-front of the loader). This isn't a true page loader, in the sense that it will only display briefly and will vanish; even if the page is still loading. The updated PageLoader stack overcomes this problem and has significantly more loading effects that work reliably in different themes and web browsers and is now the recommended one to use.
Payments
Formally developed by Jeremy Blaze and Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com.
Pinnable
Was available has a private Beta for a couple of years, but never got released. When last tested, the stack was still working in Stacks 2 and Stacks 3. The ImageWizard stack (released in September 2015) has a more customisable and simplified method of sharing images to Pinterest, and this is the recommended stack to use for new projects.
News Ticker Basic and Styled
Version 2.0.2. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. Updated in 2017 with support for more dummy text libraries and a new user interface. See this webpage for the latest version.
Pinnr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
Play / VideoPlayr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. This version of the stack doesn't work reliably in some web browsers (the controls are off-alignment) and there may be more serious issues that restrict its compatibility with newer web browsers. The 'Playr' series of stacks were replaced with VideoPlayer 2 in May 2016. VideoPlayer 2 is a completely new video player stack coded exclusively for RapidWeaver and containing many more customisable settings.
Playlistr (StackManiac)
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. This stack has a couple of display and rendering bugs which may limit its use. Because the original plugin that Playlistr was built on is no longer actively developed, we've been unable to update or resolve these issues fully. There may be more serious browser compatibility bugs. The Playlister stack (released 2nd November 2015) is intended to replace Playlistr and is much more sophisticated. Playlister is a free update for all Playlistr users.
Protector
Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
Placeholder
Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
Publisher
Version 3.1.2. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. Replaced with AdvancedPublisher.
Randomiser
Used for displaying one item on a page at random, as the page loads. Randomiser was replaced with SortStack in October 2015, which has a great many more customisable style and behavioural options. SortStack is a free update for existing users of Randomiser.
RefinedSlidr
An image slideshow stack originally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac. This stack had difficulty working in Stacks 3, and a quick-fix update was rushed through in August 2015 (version 1.6, which is the version the link above points to) to address the issues. A few weeks later, RefinedSlider 2 was released on 3rd September 2015, which is a total rebuild of the original stack. A great many feature requests and new features have been put into RefinedSlider 2, which is now arguably the most powerful image slideshow stack available for Stacks 3.
Responsive Content
Version 1.1.0. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. The functionality offered in this stack has since been merged into the free UsefulStack.
Rotatr
The original Rotatr stack by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac. This stack was replaced on Thursday 3rd September 2015 with the newer and updated Rotator stack. Although the original Rotatr stack still works, it makes use of 'repeats' which will be deprecated in Stacks 3, in 2016.
Roundr
Formally developed by Aaron Marquez of StackManiac.com. Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
RWML
Version 1.1.2. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. RWML received a huge, paid update in 2017. A lot of new features have gone into the latest version, including an all new editing interface and major performance improvements. The latest version is available here.
ScrollFade
Replaced with ImageWizard in September 2015.
ScrollTo_and_Bounce
This set of three stacks was developed by Tsooj Media. We understand it was never released, so this set of stacks might be incomplete and has not been tested.
ScrollPane
Version 2.0.2, in multiple builds. Formally developed by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there may be other undocumented issues. Updated in 2017 with major browser compatibility improvements. The latest version can be found here.

Socializr
A social networking sharing stack developed by Aaron Marquez. This stack is not compatible with retina devices and secured websites being served over HTTPS protocol. Replaced with the ShareStack, which was provided as a free update for existing users in August 2015.
SlowLoader
A free stack previously developed for showing a progress indicator before slow loading images are available to display. SlowLoader was replaced on Monday 11th January 2016 with the paid PageLoader stack. As of writing this, SlowLoader does still work, but is no longer being actively developed or supported. PageLoader is a more powerful solution and creates a choice of AJAX-style progress indicators. The PageLoader stack can be configured to fade-in a page when it has finished downloading.
Switchr
Developed by Aaron Marquez. This stack was still working the last time it was tested, but had limited customisable options. Replaced with the Switcher stack on Thursday 17th September 2015, which was provided as a free update for existing users.
Tabable
A simple tabs stack developed exclusively for themes which support Bootstrap 3. This stack works less-well in themes now using Bootstrap 4 or greater. There are better solutions available towards creating tabs. ThemeFlood themes can make use of the Bootstrap Tabs code snippet. There is also the Switcher stack which can create tabs with many customisable options.
Viewr
An image gallery stack with swipe gesture support on touch devices. Some existing users reported that SVG icons used for the gallery navigation were missing and that image were rendering with poor quality. Originally developed by Aaron Marquez. Replaced with the SwipeGallery stack, which was provided as a free update for existing users in August 2015.
WebYep
Version 1.2.1, by Tsooj Media. Automatic updates are broken in this build and there are known incompatibilities with PHP 7.x. WebYep CMS stacks were totally rewritten and re-released in early 2018, in combination with the release of WebYep 2. The latest version can be found here.
