"Safari is no different" (As I've mentioned already in the 1200+ postings news thread) the online editor of the most popular blogging hoster wordpress.com won't let insert images and links in the WYSIWYG mode. I've posted the problem to wordpress' support forum and there is a not real satisfying response from the staff. Please have a look at it: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/safari-4-beta-editor-hickups from mark Wordpress.com Support Feb 26, 2009, 10:35 AM (CET) Workarounds: Downgrade to Safari 3.2.1 - There is an option in the dmg package you've downloaded with the Safari 4 Beta release. (Not an option for me. The advantages of Safari 4 prevail by far.) Use another Browser. It worked with an old Opera install that I've found on my HD (never used it before and I even don't know how it made it on my HD, I am not kidding). I've upgraded to newsworthy Opera version 9.63 within seconds (no reboot necessary). It works too with the wordpress visual editor. But: It's slow as hell (compared to S4B), you can't resize the editor window, it will not show wordpress' bold and italic emphasis and lots of other issues... Short: It's crap but I am using it now just for editing my blogs until the problem vanishes because somebody cares about. Maybe I'll try Chrome (has somebody any experiences with this browser on Leopard and this editor?) [edit: My fault, Chrome is not available for Mac OS X, sorry] Use the wordpress' online HTML editor (it's a tab above the editor). It's... well... a HTML editor with restricted features but it works well with Safari 4 Beta. I am using it as well for the time being but the workflow is even slower than with Opera. Migrate your blog to Google or somewhere else. (MacRumors?) Personally I have no experiences with that at all. (Anyone?) You will lose your wordpress URL. I've added a full size screenshot of the problematic situation. No more input possible. Here you can only go back and you will lose any changes that you've made before you hit on the chain symbol. What do you think should I answer in their support forum, folks? Something like: "Until now I often recommended wordpress as one of the best online blogging softwares and hosters for the Mac OS X platform. Thank you very much for your appreciated service. Safari 4 -- even beta -- is acknowledged as the best browser for the time being that fulfills all standards 100 %. You are completely right, don't look too hard at fixing any issues. Treat it like Internet Explorer and the other crap. I do understand you very well." ;-) Suggestions? Thanks in advance. Thanks for reading.
