Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Not Recognizing Site Changes

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but Simon is not recognizing any website changes. I have made many changes to my website to test it and it never sees them. Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Not Recognizing Site Changes

Do you have a filter in your test? Simon only looks for changes if you have a suitable filter specified. If you want to detect a change anywhere on the page, simply add a Change filter. Or use a Block or Find-based filter to look for changes in a specific portion of the page.
