These are problems I am getting using the Safari Browser with WordPress. When I say ‘WordPress’, I mean WordPress.com specifically. I don’t have any issues with WordPress.org
I think both of the following issues relate to how the browser talks to the WordPress.com servers, but I don’t really know.
Here are the two issues:
I want to like you
The first act a problem I have had for a few months trying to ‘like’ a WP.com post in Safari.
I am logged in to WP.com but when I click to like someone’s post – nothing happens.
That is, nothing happens unless and until I go to the comment field and click the WordPress icon.
Then I can ‘like’ a post.
It happens in Safari in iOS as well, except the browser refreshes as though it is opening a new window.
Oops not found
Another issue in Safari is specific to when I write posts with Gutenberg.
What happens is that when I click ‘ Preview on a post I have not yet published, it goes to a ‘page not found’.
It doesn’t recognise the Preview at all. This is the kind of URL it brings up. (Note that I have changed the URL to ‘dot’ so that it doesn’t try to be a live link.)
https://photographworks dot me/?p=10521
However, I can go to ‘All Posts’ and click ‘Preview’ from there and it works.
https://photographworks.wordpress dot com/?p=10521&preview=true
I wonder whether the issue is connected to the fact that I have a custom domain (photographworks dot me)
Are you getting similar behaviour?
Anyone else getting similar behaviour in Safari?
