RapidWeaver 6 eBook


Coming Soon I’ve been getting a lot of requests for a book on RapidWeaver 6 and plan to start working on it shortly. I am also currently involved in the testing for the new RapidWeaver 6.3 update, which continues to add to the speed of the software and weed out some of the minor bugs that are left. For more news on this stay tuned. I’ve reduced the prices of my RapidWeaver 5 eBook since 6 is now the the latest version. There is still a lot of cross-over between 5 and 6 so most of the topics are still […]

Waterfall Support


In Nimblehost’s words Waterfall is “Easy, Automatic Theme Updating for Both RapidWeaver® 5 & 6″ and it is exactly that. Simply add Waterfall to any of your RapidWeaver projects and you can receive updates for your themes provided the developer’s theme supports Waterfall. The process is the same as you’re already used to with Stacks. I’m also proud to announce that all our themes now support Waterfall. We will continue to announce updates and you can always use our manual downloading, but I highly recommend to all my customers the added convenience that Waterfall has to offer. For any of […]

Mark’s Big Thank You Fundraiser


My 4th child is due in a couple months and everything looks good so far, but myself and my wife wanted to give our own thanks by giving to whatever new batch of babies are adventuring through their own recovery in the NICU, which is intensive care for newborns. We’ve partnered up with the same local NICU that helped Mark and have already received lots of support. My second son, Mark, was born almost 2 months early due to a fairly uncommon disorder called gastroschisis. Due to the surgery and medicine that was needed to help patch up his tummy […]

Solar, Wireless Logitech Keyboard

Solar Wireless Logitech Keyboard Mac

Just got a new keyboard and I love it so much I have to blog about it. It is almost spot on with the look and feel when it comes to being a “Mac” product, just slightly heavier than they aim to be typically, though I’m guessing for a reason. It’s solar so you can save your batteries and wireless so you can still move that thing a very good distance from your Mac. Also, by solar it doesn’t mean you have to be outside under the sun, you just need a light source (like your old calculators). I actually […]

Sorting Added to the Shop

As our inventory has grown it has become increasingly difficult for us to show our customers what products we have available. In response, we’ve added a very cool and lightening fast search engine including one-click categories that are all powered by Angular.js, so your results load without the whole page having to. We did this back in July, but we haven’t stopped there. To improve the site even more we’ve added some very cool new sorting options. Select the icons to change the sorting. The first icon (calendar) sorts by date. The second icon (US dollar) sorts by price. The […]

1LD New Homepage

Powered by Angular we redesigned our homepage to be lightning times faster than before. If you miss the cool knob we had before you can always go visit our Phantom stack

Stacks 2.5

Stacks 2.5.2

Stacks 2.5 offers some very cool new features that every Stacks user should know about. Note that you should make sure you’re running version 2.5.2 if you’re having any problems running Stacks (there were some brief bugs with certain Mac OS versions, but nothing that was not quickly patched). After installing 2.5+ you’ll notice some new tool icons in the top right above the customization options. The icon on the furthest lest (eye) minimizes stacks sections in the main editing section. This makes working on Stacks pages much easier when there are several stacks on a single page and when […]

Stacks Grouping Change

A while back we received several requests to separate our Stacks into groups as some of our users had a ton of them and they could be hard to sort through. However, we’ve now had a ton of requests to do away with this change, so we’ve heard your voices and we’re returning back to a single group title. This will be a process so give us a bit of time with it – we’ll likely prioritize some new releases and updates, but we’ll get things moved over . The original Stack group was 1LD Stacks – this is the […]

Consolidate CSS

What is it? The Consolidate CSS option can be found in the RapidWeaver > Preferences section as a Publishing > Advanced option. By default RapidWeaver will not consolidate your CSS files. If selected, all your CSS files will be combined into one CSS file. This works well with RapidWeaver’s built-in themes, but can cause major conflicts with 3rd party developers’ themes and more specifically with those that have a high amount of customization options. What Use It? The only reason, that I’m aware of, why anyone would like to use this option is entirely due to Internet Explorer’s (IE) nonsensical […]

twitterConnect Offline Due to Major API Change

twitterConnect Rapidweaver Stack Icon

Twitter’s API has been at version 1.0 for some time and gone through little to no changes since Twitter released (from what I could fine). A new API, version 1.1, released within the last 24 hours, which will cause anything (Theme, Plugin, Stack, etc) that uses the old API to fail – unless they were prepared with the new API, which I’m guessing few were. For 1 Little Designer this means only that our twitterConnect Stack is current not operating, though we hope to have this fixed asap. We also advice any business website’s that rely or weigh heavily any […]

New Forum Based Support

1LD Forum Support

To help best facilitate the customer service for all our customers we have created a very awesome and fully responsive forum support page. Creating an account is quick and painless. It will generate a password for you automatically that you’ll receive in your confirmation e-mail. Once you log in you can easily change the password to whatever you like. In addition to answering tech support questions the page will also be used as a Knowledgebase and FAQ archive. You can create an account for better tracking of previous tech support questions, though one is not required for asking forum based […]

Update & Tutorials Added

cleanLists & cleanResponse now both have video tutorials located on their respective tutorial page. In addition, you can find these videos on our YouTube channel. A small update to cleanLists also attempts to fix the standard bullets from appearing, which would occur in some themes. An unneeded file was also removed.

Internet Explorer 10 Released


If the headline of this post didn’t interest you much then hats off to you – you’ve probably realized that Microsoft’s onslaught of advertisements, as impressive as they were, had little to no truth in them and the Internet Explorer (IE) is perhaps the worst internet browser on the market. Perhaps you don’t use IE for another purpose though… there’s probably a slew of reasons not to use it. If you are a developer IE 10 does move in the right direction now finally supporting much needed CSS3 effects that pretty much every other browser already supports. On top of […]

Stacks Not Working?

RapidWeaver Stacks Page Icon

The version you need is Stacks 2.1.8 If you are experiencing any of your Stacks not working on your page that you have purchased from us (and likely many purchased from other developers) please download the update for Stacks 2 that should appear as a pop-up window when you next start RapidWeaver. I’m uncertain as to what is causing the error, but I’ve heard the problem may have been caused by a jQuery update and a Google API update or change. The latest Stacks patch resolves this issue and will restore jQuery functionality, which is extremely important if a Stack […]

RapidWeaver Advanced Search

Comical Morpheus Meme about RapidWeaver Advanced Search

We’ve had a lot of customers ask of if something like this existed and after so many times we finally said decided to make it ourselves. RapidWeaver Advanced Search (RAS) is designed for a single reason – to help RapidWeaver customers find the addon(s) they are looking for. RAS does this by first adding an advanced search engine with addon type, category, and developer sorting filters. After that we allow for filtering based on pricing minimum and maximums as well as ordering filters, such as the highest ranked to display ahead of lower ranked items. Finally, we allow registered users to […]

Both the PDF & Kindle version are rich with links that help you navigate easily through the book. The […]
