Duster Theme Incompatible with Safari?

  1. My browser is Apple Safari (5.0.5) on a MacBook Air 11" running Snow Leopard. I recently changed to the Duster theme and I am now having problems accessing parts of my blog. Even to sign in to WordPress, the keystrokes feel "dead." Once I am in to my blog, I am unable to click on Dashboard to change the theme and/or other functions.

    I just tried to access it from my daughter's 6 month old MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard and the same version of Safari and it is acting up the same way.

    This is the first sign of incompatibility I have encountered with my use of WordPress.

    Does anyone have an idea as to what's going on?

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is rosalindwent.wordpress.com.

  2. Have you tried any troubleshooting? http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/

  3. Yes, I had read the troubleshooting page beforehand, Timethief. It seems that it does the same thing in Firefox, so I downloaded Opera and all seems well in Opera.

    It seems the problem started rather suddenly, and I suspect it's Snow Leopard that's causing the problem, perhaps. I used our older iMac, not running Snow Leopard and it worked alright, as well.

    I'll have to use Opera from now on to post to WordPress. Wish Safari/Snow Leopard and WordPress would produce a friendlier environment.

  4. I'm sorry to hear you experienced this and glad to hear you were able to resolve it. However, I think you ought to report this to Staff when they re0open the support link at 12PM UTC on Monday 4th July. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  5. I use Safari 5.0.5 and Firefox 5 on Mac and have zero issues with blogs here and with the dashboard in either of them (MacBook Pro Snow Leopard 10.6.8). And I have no problems with sites using Duster or Twenty Eleven (which is a modified version of Duster).
