Problems using Safari?


Problems using Safari?

I'm wondering if anyone else is having problems trying to create emails using their custom code via the Safari browser? Every time I try to hit the Advanced Editor to insert my saved HTML I get a large page that has this:


<!-- If your HTML code DOES include the html, head, and body tags,
replace the entire code below with your custom HTML code.

Please note, if you want to use the Constant Contact personalized greeting,
make sure to add the <Greeting/> tag to your code. -->

<Greeting />
<!-- If your HTML code DOES NOT include the html, head, and body tags,
paste your custom HTML code between the START and END comments -->
<!-- START -->

<!-- END -->


Whereas if I use Firefox I have no problem at all. I'm just wondering. I'm using Safari 12.0.1 and the latest Mojave.




Hello @VantageMarketing


Thanks for reaching out in the Community! Sorry to hear you're having issues with creating the custom code email in Safari. To answer your question Constant Contact does work with Safari. We haven't had other reports with the same issue. 


When pasting in your code, you want to be sure that all of it is between the start and end comments. Additionally, you may need to update your java to the latest version. 


Hope this helps!

This solution was not helpful and the situation continues. We will use Firefox as a workaround. The coding is not the problem as all materials have been checked in Dreamweaver and used on other browsers and works fine. As for updating Java, this is something that is rarely encouraged by Apple.


thank you
