Safari extension downloaded from WOT is broken

Post by Chas4 » Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:20 am

Safari refuses to install the extension when downlaoded from https://www.mywot.com/files/downloads/wot-latest.safariextz


From the Apple Safari extension gallery https://safari-extensions.apple.com/details/?id=com.wotservicesoy.wot-FF6WW26HL3 is stuck on version 2.1.3


Also the version history on:
http://www.mywot.com/wiki/Safari
Is a few years outdated on the extension history.

Safari won't let you install over the one from Apple Safari extension gallery , you have to uninstall the Apple Safari extension gallery version to install the current from WOT

Looks to be a Safari bug as the error message has no info in it

Not sure if WOT has even submitted the update to Apple

For an unknown reason, WOT was not updating in the El Capitan gallery, an issue which has now been resolved.

Absolutely correct in that Wiki needs updating - and not just for Safari. This is in our pipeline.
