Safari and Caucus
Last revised: 17 October 2003
Problems with Caucus?
Safari is Apple's new web browser for Mac OS X, and it's quite an interesting addition to the web browser market.
People using Safari with versions of Caucus prior to 4.50/i63 may encounter a problem. When you get to an item page (the display of the actual conversations), the page may appear to keep reloading itself, and you may not be able to click in the text box to write your own response.
What to do?
- Please contact your system administrator or Caucus administrator, and point them at this page. In the meantime, you can still use Safari, but you may need to press "Stop" (the "X" button) or else pull down View and click on "Stop", on every item page.
Alternately, you can upgrade your entire Caucus site to version 4.5 / i63, which may offer other benefits and new features. See the download page.
If you encounter any other problems with Safari and Caucus, it may be a problem with an earlier version of Safari.
- Check the precise version number of the Safari browser you are using. Pull down "Safari / About Safari" to see the version number. Or, this browser checker will tell you all the gory details of your browser and platform version.
- Make sure you are using a current version of Safari. Our tests were conducted with version 1.0/85, and everything (except some Java applets, like 'chat') seemed to work fine.
(The full user-agent string for Safari 85, as reported by the browser checker, is Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/85 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/85.
You can download the latest version of Safari from www.apple.com/safari/download.
- If you see a problem with version 1.0/85 or higher, please send a screen snapshot, and as much information as possible, to us at email@example.com. Thanks!
