Can DMS be edited with Safari or Firefox?

Recommended Posts

I do not use Google Chrome, therefore I have been postponing buying DMS until I am able to use Safari or Firefox.

Are there any plans for DMS to be able to be edited using Safari or Firefox?

Thank you.

There are many plugins that can change your browsers ident string allowing you to use ANY browser.

I think you can even change safari ident in its developer tools.

Chrome has a far better javascript engine.

Thank you for your helpful response. 

 

Perhaps in the future DMS will run natively on Safari and Firefox.

 

Best.

Dear Simon_P,

 

Thank you again for your helpful response.  

I wanted to add that on Safari you can activate the "Develop" menu under preferences.  After that, it is just a matter of choosing "User Agent" and choosing the browser identity one wishes Safari to be.

Yeah you can as you mentioned above in Safari. However, I am not sure this can be done in FF, IE or Opera without the use of plugins/extensions. However, not sure why you would really want to use any other browser Chrome > All! ;)


Please search our forums, before posting!

I too wish other browsers were enabled by default. Chrome used to be leaps and bounds ahead of other browsers for processing JS, and now I believe they're comparable. Dare I say even newer versions of IE can be surprisingly good.

      Greetings
      I just migrated an old DMS2 site to PL5 at cassClayton.com. If you look at the site on Safari browser, you will see the top nav bar (NavPro) is white, but gets revealed as you start to scroll the page. NavPro is used in the Header section, then a Text section in which I have Shortcode for the Smart Slider3 plugin. Would have preferred to use a PL-compatible slider but found it difficult to get Flick and Impress slider to simply fill full screen, just height of images (they were filling whole screen, hence large black area filling in the rest).
      So seems on Safari that the load order of the plugin may be causing the Nav bar to be overwritten? or something. 
      Hoping someone can help?
      thanks...  (works fine on Chrome, Firefox, even Tor, just not Safari)

      On my site www.modishmel.com I'm seeing the "blog post title" within the "pins" plugin section breaking words into multiple lines. See screenshot attached.
      Only seeing it in Firefox. Can you help?

      We're seeing an abnormal break in widgets in Safari (El Capitan v10.11.4). 3 Widgets set for 4 of 12 columns each breaks correctly in Chrome and Firefox, but the 3rd widget goes to another line in Safari.
      Screenshot attached.
      Hoping there's a CSS fix you could recommend in the meantime, until an update. You can see this on our home page: www.novusweb.com.

      It seems that whenever media is set to be on the left, there is a problem with the way safari displays them. I used to have boxes with media on left when i was using DMS2, but since PL5, I've had to use only media on top. I know there are a few css suggestions that people have offered, but I'm wondering if such suggestions can't be built into the boxes code for PL5 rather than having to add extra CSS. Otherwise, am really liking PL5 over DMS2.

      Hi,

      I noticed that PL5 uses flexbox for it's responsive grid. I think this is awesome. 
      But now there's a project coming in where I know I'll have to support older crappier browsers as well. Any thoughts on this? Should I only use PL5 for project where we're focused on modern browsers? Or should I use custom CSS to insert a float-based fallback grid..? 

      Thanks!
