The best support for the best search stacksWe endeavour to create high-quality search stacks for your RapidWeaver authored websites, backed by expert-level customer support. Minor questions are answered free and we can also be hired to oversee more complex things; like website SEO, custom search stacks and database setup.
RapidSearch stacks are now owned and maintained by Will Woodgate. If you have any pre-sales questions, feedback or technical support requests, you can contact Will direct via email.
For RapidSearch and RapidSearchPro questions, we still host an FAQ (frequently asked questions) page here that might help answer common questions you have. The other stacks have all setup information displayed on their product pages.
Most correspondence normally gets a response within about 3 days, although things may be slower at weekends and around holiday times. You can also post questions to the RapidWeaver Community forums, where a support volunteer might be able to help you quicker. Please do not cross-post the same questions by email and to the forums, otherwise they will get marked as spam and deleted without a reply.
For technical support questions, please don't forget to include the link direct to your published webpage and any other important details to help assist us in answering your enquiry.
Background historyRapidSearch was developed by Josh Lockhart as a Cocoa / Objective-C plugin for RapidWeaver in about 2007 / 2008. RapidSearch Pro was released a bit later in 2010. Josh Lockhart (of relation to Charlie Lockhart from BlueBall Design) transferred ownership of both plugins to Jonathan Head at Nimblehost in 2013. At that time, Josh went on to become author of the Modern PHP book published by O'Reilly and founder of the Slim Framework for PHP.
Jonathan continued to develop and release major updates to both RapidSearch and RapidSearch Pro plugins. Jonathan also repackaged both plugins in stack format, for the Yourhead Stacks plugin.
Will Woodgate took over ownership of the RapidSearch and RapidSearch Pro stacks in August 2016; by which time the plugin versions were discontinued. The stacks still contain the original pedigree codebase that made them so wonderfully popular. Will has deployed a brand new responsive website that reunites both stacks together again and rewritten much of the support documentation. Both stacks will continue to be maintained. Additional RapidSearch stacks have since been developed and released through the website.
