Hello I will be receiving my new imac on Wed. and I can hardly wait. I have a question about iweb, using the templates can you change the background picture to a picture of your choosing, or is this extremely hard? I love how easy iweb looks but want to tweak it a little. Thanks and as a life long windoze user I cant wait to turn back from the dark side.

Thanks for the response. I was wondering because I had heard that it can be somewhat difficult to do some things in iweb. As along as I can customize the background I should be able to make the website look half way decent and not so generic.

There are 3 ways to edit a page with iWeb...

1. Using only iWeb.
2. Modifying the page after it is created.
3. Editing the template files.

Every one of this has its own advantages and disadvantages, for example, you cannot add Java or JavaScript or any other code using iWeb or changing the templates, however you can add it after the page is created but iWeb will clean it every time you update the page. Some style details like link colors, navigation bar and blog fonts/styles can only be changed altering the template file, although you can do this after the page is created, the only way to create permanent changes that won't be cleaned after updates is to change the template file. Give it a try before trying anything too radical, iWeb can do a lot by itself if you use your imagination.
