Browser Console

When faced with a problem using Cwicly, one invaluable tool to assist us in unraveling the situation is your browser's developer (or JavaScript) console.

Discovering the browser console location in today's contemporary browsers is as follows.

Google Chrome

To launch the developer console in Google Chrome, initiate the Chrome Menu located in the upper-right-hand corner of the browser window and then opt for More Tools > Developer Tools.

Alternatively, on macOS, you can employ the keyboard shortcut Option + ⌘ + C, while on Windows/Linux, you can use Shift + CTRL + C.

The console will appear either within your current Chrome window or in a new one, and you may need to manually choose the Console tab.

Apple Safari

To unlock the developer console in Safari, you must initiate the Developer Menu first. To accomplish this, navigate to Safari's preferences (Safari Menu > Settings), and opt for the Advanced Tab.

Once you have activated this menu, you can easily access the developer console by following this path: Develop > Show JavaScript Console.

Alternatively, you can employ the convenient shortcut Option + ⌘ + C.

The console will open either within your current Safari window or in a fresh one, with the Console tab being automatically selected.
