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.
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.
If you have a link for a download version of muse that works, can you send? the one i used from the Adobe site did not work.
this is what i get when i try to install 2018 or 19
Simply use the "standard way":
Open the CC Desktop App, find Muse and install it. 🙂
Unless I'm losing my mind, it is not in the CC desktop app that i have. and when i search Muse, it says not found.
Do you have a complete CC subscription?
Do you use the actual CC Desktop App?
yes to the first question.
i think i am using the CC Desktop app, I click on the icon in the top bar and it opens. not sure what else i should be doing.
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.
I had Muse, but after all the updates, i now no longer do, unfortunately, and the download for it gives the error i posted earlier. I just did a search and i don't have it on here anymore.
No time machine backup? That is quite negligent, as you see …
In this case, you should contact the Adobe support …
wow. thanks for the help!
How should we help in this case? No backup to restore older Muse, knowing, that it is end of life …
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
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 .

"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.
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.
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.
