Vanilla 1.1.x & Safari

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Mark, I am supposing that you have updated this forum to version 1.1(.1). I have just tried bookmarking a discussion here, using Safari 2.0.4, and have not been able to do it. Safari goes through the motions, and the menu title in the sidepanel even changes from "Bookmark this Discussion" to "Unbookmark this Discussion". However, if I go to the Discussions page, I see that the discussion was not bookmarked at all. This problem does is reproducible every time, and does not happen in Firefox. This is the second problem I've noticed with Safari - new problems, which did not exist in the previous version. The other problem is with the new autoupdate feature, reported <a href=""> in this discussion</a>.

    Try hard-refreshing so you get the latest JS files. browsers tend to cache them and not notice when they've been updated.

    I have just bookmarked this discussion in Safari 2.0.4.
  • @Mark: thank you for the tip! Doing a hard-refresh did not work in my case. I had to quit Safari, re-launch with a blank window, and empty the cache. Now, when I access the forum, it all seems to work!

    No problem. Glad it worked!
  • see... It just works !!!
  • Safari tip:
    Beside emptying the cache, juste open the activity window (cmd-alt-A) and watch the files listed, if the js does not reload when you hit cmd-R, double click on it to open it as a regular file and refresh it.
    BTW, hard refresh in Safari is cmd-R, not just reloading the page from the url bar.
  • The activity window trick is one I use but it does not always work as Safari uses a RAM cache as well as a disk cache, so restarting Safari may also be required.

    I copy the link to the js, quit and relaunch Safari.
    Paste the js link into the address bar, refresh a couple of times and that usually does it.
