Thanks for the reply. i did see that posting but I wasn't really after an upgrade/install manual. I just thought that Mac users may have specific problems that could all be gathered together, e.g. I see Moodle slightly differently to PC users. Now this may be because I am using a Mac or for antoher reason. But if other Mac users have posted similare observations then I can easily find these if they are in one forum.
Anyway, it was only a suggestion and if other Mac users are happy with the current arrangement then that's fine by me also.
Joe, I agree a Mac users forum would be good for keeping all
the mac related information in one place. I do however feel that we need to
post general issues with moodle in the already defined support areas. PHP is
PHP after all, but I do see what youre saying and think it would be a good
After being very impressed overall with Safari...my enthusiasm has dwindled.
However, it seems to work very well for Moodle. Much better than IE 5.2...that's just no good at all..
These days I browse with Mozilla on both the PC and Mac and look forward to Firefox's first stable release.
A Mac forum could support two issues:
- bring up problems where platform-independent-Moodle has a flaw on the Mac (like my own IE/Intel based change of Gustav's code for "jump to current day from the Calendar")
- share tips for Mac specific resource production tools
- for Linux-users such a forum could have the same platform info collection function
- and for Windows..
I think Browser differences would be more relevant for discussion as to how they effect Moodle installations and themes, for example- where people could ask "I'm having this problem (or this new theme or whatever) could people please test it on browsers in whatever OS you have?"
Yes, that is a bigger problem:
- since I try Firefox, I see for the first time in my life rounded corners in Moodle.org,
I never saw these in IE6
- When I test special resources in IE6 and then try to play them in Firefox, or Netscape or..
