RapidWeaver Classic VS RapidWeaver Elements

Both versions of RapidWeaver are in development and actively supported enabling you to choose the best version of RapidWeaver for the project(s) you're working on.
RapidWeaver Classic supports native plugins like Stacks and Ecwid. If you have projects built using plugins and have invested heavily in stacks, RW Classic is the version to continue using for those projects. We will continue to support and add new features to RapidWeaver Classic going forward.
RapidWeaver Elements is set to introduce a brand-new drag-and-drop page layout system that uses modular Elements to build highly customisable modern page layouts. RapidWeaver Elements is set to launch in 2022.
This online documentation covers both RapidWeaver Classic and the forthcoming RapidWeaver Elements.
