Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite)

The instructions provided for Mac OS 10.9 and earlier can also be used to mount the Authoring Space if you are using 10.10. However, because of a change in the mechanism used to save files, the Apple webDAV implementation in 10.10 will not allow saving of files in Authoring Space if they have already been published to resource space. However, if you purchase the inexpensive ForkLift 2 utility for Yosemite, you can continue to use the webDAV to modify and save these types of files, when you use ForkLift to set up and manage your webDAV connection.

  1. Select the "Go" item in the ForkLift toolbar and select "Connect...".

  2. In the "Connect" dialog select "WebDAV (HTTPS)" as the protocol, and enter the hostname of the server in the Server textbox, and your LON-CAPA username (LON-CAPA username,domain if you are a co-author with a domain different to that of the author), and password Click the "More options" arrow to display the Remote path textbox, and enter webdav/ < dom > / < username > /, where dom is the domain, and username is the username of the Authoring Space owner.

    you can use control + click for a particular file to choose an application to use to open it (e.g., Text Wrangler for .problem files).
