Hello, I am having problems with a blog platform's plugin on Safari. I know that I should consult the developer of the plugin first, which I already have and he seems to think it is fixed, but the problem is still occurring, so I am looking a different solution, which is in the realm of a Mac forum like this, not the blog platform or developer. I am running a blog on Habari 0.7.1 and have enjoyed it, but I cannot seem to export the XML entirely from a plugin I got for it. The plugin supports WXR and BlogML exports, the latter works, but Safari wants to display the former, instead of downloading it, even with the application/octet-stream. This problem cannot be found in any other browser, other than Safari. This is why I need to know exactly what I need to do to force Safari to download the file. I can't right-click and download linked file, because that would log me out of the platform and the files are dynamically generated. My version of Safari is 5.0.3 and operating system is OS X Snow Leopard.

Here is the github page for the plugin, if you need to see source code:

Also, I do not plan to use Wordpress instead, because I need a blog platform that works on LAN and Internet, and Wordpress is not easy in that department, whereas MediaWiki, PHPBB, Serendipity, and Mantis do not give me such troubles.
QUOTE Thanks
