    iWeb html
    I just got it so im not too sure, But is there a way to access the html code to add extras in through iWeb.

    Currently im just closing iWeb and editing through a text program but it would be a lot easier if there is something im missing and can just click html view or something.

    Any help would be good, thanks.

    I haven't heard of a way to do that, but I would be interested to know if you can.

    I posted on apple.com discussion forums and response i got was that its not possible in iWeb to view/edit the html.

    I downloaded the dreamweaver demo and i can import pages i made with iWeb then from there do the more advanced editing with html and the tools in the program itself.

    editing html
    You can edit the HTML by using a program like Really Simple Text. You publish all your files to a folder, then change the .html endings to txt then open with Really simple text. Edit away.

    However, you cannot then put them back into iweb. If you do other alterations you'll have to repeat your changes every time, as far as I can tell thus far.

    If it isn't too complicated you could try Insert-->"HTML Snippet" from the menu.

    I would suggest you to learn some basic HTML so you would be able to edit the code with any simple text editor that works on your mac.

    He already is doing that.

    There are two issues. If you edit the original files within the iWeb container folder, iWeb might not function properly or find some other way to mess up. If you edit the end product that one exports to a folder, you have to repeat the edit if you re-export from iWeb.

    There is a third party application to help enhance iWeb pages, but I can't find via a Google search. Would help if I could remember the name, eh!

    I've herd that you can post HTML source directly into iWeb, Yet I have also herd there are problems doing such, as iWeb is basically a stand-alone application, in other words it supports only things that are included, yet it seams to allow Flash and Java-Script.

    Thinking that access to the iWeb folders can solve your problem is a big assumption. You are better off starting a new thread with a clear description of the problem, and the versions of iWeb and OS X you are using. Before doing that, search this forum.

    If you insist, the top level iWeb folder is something like ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain.sites2 where the ~ is your home folder. Double clicking on that file should open it in iWeb. Control clicking it will allow you to select Show Package Contents for further exploring. MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE messing with the contents.
