Although I was first very enthousastic about WordPress, the last few hours have changed my mind a bit. I found out that I cannot use Safari for two important admin tasks:
– it is impossible to add a category (both when managing categories and while writing a new post)
– it is impossible to upload pictures
These problems occur in the combination of WP and Safari. I tested both functions with Firefox on my Powerbook, and in Firefox it works fine. I also noticed that once uploaded, I was able to browse the pictures in Safari. So it seems that only uploading the pictures is a problem.
I would seriously suggest to update the WordPress Requirements. It only states server side software like PHP, MySQL and Apache. But it should also include browser incompatibilities. Maybe adding a “Browser Incompatibilities” section to the documentation would be nice. Now Safari (and other browser) problems seem to be scattered through the doc’s and forum.
