Company backgroundRWExtras was the brainchild of Mauricio Sabene; who started RWExtras several years ago. He build-up a large collection of mainly gallery and typographic stack addons for RapidWeaver.
The company was taken over by Jonathan Head of Nimblehost Software in January 2015; who oversaw customer support of the addon inventory and continued to host the old RWExtras website.
More recently, RWExtras has been acquired by Will Woodgate in August 2016. Will has been working in RapidWeaver for over 10 years and already operates the highly successful ThemeFlood and Stacks4Stacks projects.
Going forwardSince the acquisition of RWExtras in August 2016, we have tested and sorted all the previous stacks that were available. Some of the older stacks that could not be updated have been discontinued (for example, stacks that were not responsive and which depended on plugins or frameworks that are no longer developed).
Some of the better stacks have been updated and re-listed on the website. And all of the former WeaverPix themes hosted on ThemeFlood have been converted into Stacks and are now hosted here on RWExtras. We have also introduced several brand new stack elements, which have never been available before.
The 'RWExtras' brand will be retained. This website will form part of our 'North American' operations, and therefore all prices will remain in USD. The longterm plan is to use RWExtras as the basis for developing a range of extremely simple stack elements for novice RapidWeaver users; with emphasis on low prices, self-explanatory setup and simple functionality.
UpdatesStrictly speaking, we're not honouring free updates for existing customers. A massive amount of time and effort has been invested into rebuilding these stacks. We do not hold a comprehensive list of customer purchase history. Free updates will only be provided on a discretionary basis; to customers who can supply proof of purchase (e.g. a sales receipt or invoice) and whom are willing to promote the website or write positive reviews about the stacks.
Of note, between Monday 28th November (Cyber Monday) and Monday 5th December 2016, RWExtras is holding a special relaunch event that is being heavily publicised on the RapidWeaver forums and social media. You will be able to take advantage of this special week-long promotion to buy any of our addons with 50% off (or 67% off if you buy the bundle of all stacks). Please take advantage of this event, as discounts of this magnitude are unlikely to be repeated again. This is a great opportunity to update or invest into new stacks.
