Can anyone tell me if Muse will still run on Mac OS Catalina?
I still need to use Muse for a bit but reluctant to install the new OS in case it trashes it.

Thanks

There are reports, that it works fine on Catalina – even the previous version seems to run without hiccups. Didn’t try it yet. I only report, what other found out. Look here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/Muse/MacOS-Catalina/m-p/10663947#M47690

don't do it! it does not work. you can download it, but then you get an error that says installer needs to be updated for Catalina and since Adobe is not supporting Muse anymore, that won't be happening. I just did it and now can't access my Muse sites!

All is working perfectly here under Catalina.

Older Versions are running fine (18.0, 18.1). the newest Version (released some weeks ago) 18.1.1 works and installs as well.

Simply use the "standard way":

Open the CC Desktop App, find Muse and install it. 🙂

Do you have a complete CC subscription?

Do you use the actual CC Desktop App?

I think, the issue is this:

If you have Muse on your machine, you can update it and/or reinstate even older versions.

If you don’t have it on your machine, you can’t, because it is end of life.

As you have a Mac, I think you may try to recover your older Muse by using time machine and update afterwards.

No time machine backup? That is quite negligent, as you see …

In this case, you should contact the Adobe support …

Hi Gunter
This thread is a few months old and I just wanted to check that you are still running Muse 18.1 OK on Catalina. I'm in the change over phase with some clients still on Muse so still need to use it to make amends on those sites. But I would prefer to update my OS to Catalina. Let me know if you pick this up
Cheers

Mark

Hello Mark!

I am using Muse 2018.0, and it works fine on Catalina. For support reasons I use Muse 2018.1 and Muse 2019.1.1. in addition, and I didn’t encouter any issues with either version.

Be aware: If you install Muse 2018.1.1., the installer will remove the "social widgets". If you need them, you should export/import these widgets before. If this hint comes too late, here is a simple way to re-install these widgets: https://community.adobe.com/t5/muse/adobe-muse-social-widget/m-p/10830451?page=1

Hey thanks for the heads up Günter! I'll get on and update. I wasn't sure about updating Muse to 2019 as I thought Adobe might be stripping stuff out of it pre EOL. is it OK? And thanks for the note on the social icons too. have a good day!

Adobe removed the social icons widget for a reason.  Keep in mind that it may not be in your best interest to keep using a disconnected widget or for that matter, discontinued software. 

 

If you use such widgets, you should also be aware of the privacy implications.

Wow, what a deep, profound information, Nancy! No questions remaining! 🙂

If every single(!) of these widgets really have these implications, what about the tons of websites, built with older Muse versions? Don't they have these "privacy implications" too? And if, why is there no warning by Adobe?

Nobody ever informed the Muse users about the reasons of cancelling the social widgets.

You have to be living under a rock or very naive not to know about GDPR, cookies and privacy concerns. It has long been known that Facebook and other social widgets track data from your site visitors the moment they land on your site, even though they never clicked the social icons.

Use unsupported software at your own risk.

Oh Nancy, again: What a useless "His Master’s Voice"-information!

We all know, what you are talking about, but this is not an issue starting with Muse 2018.1.1.! This is true for all sites built with older Muse versions and all websites, which use code snippets to integrate Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and similar content. And if Adobe has in mind these issues, why don’t they adress this by informing the customers? Why don’t they warn custumers to check their older Muse made sites?

I am definitely sure, that your arguments ar nothing but justification attempts – especially, because you – as we all – don’t know and can’t know Adobe’s real reasons for cancelling the social widgets.

Günter - you are obviously a mine of information so apologies for grabing you again. I am going to suggest to a customer that they get an SSL cert for their site as they have forms and will soon be starting to use facebook Pixels and google analytics. Once this has been implemented I presume the site will need reuploading - do you have to change any upload settings. Do you use auto detect in options? Or is there smething else that is required?

For the SSL certificate you don’t need to modify your site. It has to be manages on server-side.

Google Analytics need code within your site. Look at this description: https://helpx.adobe.com/muse/how-to/use-google-analytics.html and/or use this free widget: https://www.muse-themes.com/products/google-analytics .  You may also be interested in this widget: https://www.j-26.com/seo/trackers/google-analytics/ 

Here you find a widget for Facebook Pixel: https://musewidgets.com/collections/j-26-com

"...can’t know Adobe’s real reasons for cancelling the social widgets."

I never claimed to.  An Adobe staffer said the social widgets were removed for possible legal reasons.  Interpret it as you see fit.  Meanwhile, privacy and intellectual property rights continue to be big issues that Adobe is no stranger to.

Connect the dots. I figure if Adobe went out of their way to remove social widgets, they don't want people to keep using them.

"I am going to suggest to a customer that they get an SSL cert for their site..."

 

Muse has nothing to do with this.

 

SSL/TLS certificates can be obtained directly from CAs at far less cost than going through your web host.  Free certs from Let's Encrypt, Cloud Flare and others are available but the level of protection might not be good enough for a business that collects sensitive data.  For this reason, I buy my SSL/TLS certs from Namecheap.com. 

https://www.namecheap.com/security/ssl-certificates/

 

Decide how many domains need coverage, www and non-www.  You can buy 1 certificate that covers multiple domains or wildcards on the same server.  

 

Next, decide if you need domain verified (DV), organization verified (OV) or extended (EV).  DVs are quicker to process and less expensive.

 

Namecheap has an excellent knowledgebase about everything from generating CSR codes to installing and activating certs on various types of servers. 

https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/795/69/how-to-install-ssl-certificates

 

Finally, you'll need to configure the server so that all non-secure HTTP traffic is redirected to secure HTTPS.  This can be done through your server's Plesk, admin or cPanel. Or by editing the server's config or .htaccess files.  Muse cannot do this.

To add to Guenter which is all true, your host has to "do" a so called redirect to the new https:// instead of http://  , in most cases you don`t have to do this, but in some cases you are asked to put a new htaccess-file on your ftp which has nothing to do with muse at all BTW. But as I wrote and experienced, in most cases the hosting company helps you with that, because it is kind of tricky in some ways to create that htaccess file.

 

Kind Regards,

Uwe

If you don't mind paying the host additional service fees, fine.  Let them do it.

 

I don't like to pay extra for things I can easily do myself.  Learning how to set up SSL/TLS certificates is not difficult and it will save you and your client time and money.  Especially next month or next year when your certificates expire and have to be renewed again.

"My" hosts in my experience never chared for SSL either simply the SSL-cerificate itself nor the installing at it was always quite easy for them. Maybe out of Goodwill - maybe. I always told them that my site is done with Muse and they might had pity for me, who knows.
