Admin and Macs and ExplorerAugust 4, 2005 @ 3:22pm
The person who will be acting as admin for the site I am developing with FlexCMS has IE 5.2 and running that on a Mac. From what I can tell there are no newer versions for Macs, i.e. 5.5 or higher which you require to run the FlexCMS editor. Is there another solution around this issue?

Unfortunately, yes, IE 5.2 is the most recent (and final since Microsoft decided not to release any further ones) version for the Mac platform. The components our current editor relies on weren't added to IE until version 5.5. It's quite sad that Microsoft didn't continue supporting their Mac users, but that's obviously out of our control.

We plan to create a much better editor for the next version, which will work with IE, FireFox, and other browsers, and many different platforms. My hope would be that this will be released in the next month or two, but there are many other factors that come into play.

In the meantime, you can create HTML content in another application (a few popular Mac ones are listed below), and paste that into a custom page in FlexCMS. While this isn't an ideal situation, it will at least allow your site administrator to create HTML content without having to know HTML.

Some Mac HTML editors:
BlueFish (FREE) - http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/index.html
Taco HTML Edit for Mac OS X (FREE) - http://tacosw.com/index.php
Dreamweaver (Paid) - http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/

Another way (not necessarily the best way!)is also based on DCSUN's idea to edit the file in a different editor and paste it into a custom page.

Instead of cut and paste you could use "process php" setting and the include file. So if you made an HTM file and saved it as 'about.htm', then the only content on the custom page would be

include ('about.htm');

But instead of cut and paste you would have to edit and then upload the new about.htm and the page will automatically be live without going to control panel.
