Convoy Discontinued

I had high hopes for Convoy, but time restrictions and changes to Rapid Weaver have made those hopes unrealistic.

It is for these reasons that I must announce that Convoy will no longer be maintained or updated.

I apologise to those of you who found this plugin useful.

Slider 2 Discontinued

Slider 2 was my first Rapid Weaver plugin. It is with a heavy heart that I announce its end of life.

I believe that its utility is diminished in the current Rapid Weaver ecosystem that there is no longer any point to its existence. Happily, the web and the Rapid Weaver community have grown to allow for a great variety of slider solutions.

I wish to thank all of you who supported my while developing Slider 2!

Cause All Route Changes to Full Page Reload Angular JS

Inheriting a codebase isn’t fun. Even less fun if the code is filled with so many memory leaks that the only solution is to force a full page load on every route change. Below is a solution that works well in modern browsers, and IE9.

Note the check for changedFrom and changedTo. Without these, an infinite loop will occur.
