..and by changing to 5523.10, it works in Leopard as well (make sure SIMBL is 0.8.2). Yay!

Fyi, edit the info.plist file and change MaxBundleVersion to 522.11 (Sfarai 3.0b). Works fine.

I did install the new Safari beta, well aware that Safari DockStatus would probably stop working, and so it did. And I really miss it. Please, please, please make this little goodie alive again!

You know, this has just never worked for me.

It always displays the wrong number. I must be doing something wrong.

Have you tried contacting the developer? His email address is here. His name is Dan Brown.

This seems to have been "unplugged" by the recent OS update (10.4.7). The error message, when first opening Safari, says that the plug-in needs developer attention. Just thought I would comment that here.

This is simply an awesome plugin.

I have one suggestion though:
Add the option to select a specific folder in your bookmarks to only list the number of unread feeds instead of everything. I want to know how many unread feeds I have in my other bookmarks, but only want the number of a certain bookmarks folder to show on the dock.

Anyone who's having problems with the odd count of unread messages, check for RSS feeds you didn't know about in your bookmarks: I've updated the readme in the disk image with an explanation.

Why is it that my bookmarks bar says there are 166 unread but the dock says 201?

Okay, I myself, as well as other people, have reported seeing bizarre large numbers that don't make sense. I think I may have found a solution: Open Safari's Preferences->RSS. Hit the "Remove Now" button. You should probably also make sure that "Bookmarks Menu" is unchecked, unless you're sure you want it.

Alex-B had trouble on 03 Aug 2007
My dockstatus icon is inflated. Even when I set it to the smallest size, it covers at least 50% of the safari dock icon. Is this a bug or...?
This happened after I ran software update and it installed the latest security update. Running Safari 2.0.4(419.3).

Woops!

Profound apologies. My sight must be going because i thought this was still on version 1.0.2.

Problem fixed.

Continues to cause Safari to report:

Safari 2.0.4 (v419.3) has not been tested with the plugin SafariDockStatus (null) (v1.0.2). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer for further information.


Not really useful me anymore anyway since my dock is rather crowded and therefore quite small.
