first off apologies if this is in a wrong section or what ever but i am new

my problem is that when i go to publish my iweb site, it will only let me publish to mobileMe, and i have a separate ftp hosting account which i would like to publish too. Is there anyway i can publish to an ftp server?

There is a "Publish to a Folder" option (or something similar to that) which will "publish" all the html/js to a folder of your choosing. You can then upload those files.

Yeah, what vansmith said.

However, I would not use iWeb. It creates HUGE websites (including 3 sytle sheets for each page and a folder for each page). Be careful when choosing FTP software. Avoid FileZilla. It's crappy.

If you have iWeb 09, then type FTP in the help search box and follow the directions.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

Here's an article from our support section on uploading iWeb created sites to our ftp server. They should also work with where you have a web hosting account:

MacHighway Knowledgebase iWeb 08 Instructions

However, I agree with iPod_Nano above. iWeb does create bulky code. I recommend RapidWeaver (Realmac Software - Creative Web Design Software for Macs) - it is very much like iWeb, but is more versatile - plus uploading via FTP is built in. The FTP feature in iWeb '09 is still problematic, even with the latest point release.

Hopefully that was helpful.
