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.

Login not working on Web Test?

I am trying to use a web test on a phpmyadmin install (testing mysql and http at same time).
I have the correct username/password entered, but it fails every time.

Any ideas?

P.S. Where is the search option for these forums?

Re: Login not working on Web Test?

Hi Mike,

The username and password are used for an authentication challenge, as displayed in a normal web browser via a password sheet. Some websites use different authentication, like a login form. For those, you'll need to use cookies instead. Simply do a preview of the site via the test, log in as normal, and the cookies will be recorded.

If that doesn't help, please provide more information about the issue, including any error. (Via email if you prefer.)

There's a search field at the bottom of every page on the website.
