I mocked up my first web page and though it's pretty basic, I can't believe how easy it was. I was even surprised to find I move and change objects on the template I thought wer part of the background,; like a set of car keys on the photo album template. The blog page feature is really nice too since I don't want to get near myspace.

Before I publish anything I would like to try some other templates. Does anyone know where you can get more templates for iWeb? I've seen a couple sites that offer them, but it looks like you have to make some changes to the program that could cause it not to work properly. It would be nice to get some flash-based also with some animation and effects.

I just got my Mac, and I noticed that there where things like iWeb, Garageband, etc. but I didn't have enough time to check them all out. I made websites with Frontpage 2003, so I may have to check this out and see if its more user friendly.

with xstep - if it saves in html you could do anything with it.

haven't played much with iweb.

does it have only a wysiwyg editor or does it have text/code support as well (like FP where you can see code, code/preview, or just preview)?

I love and hate iWeb, some times is great but some times is really frustrating. I have been editing the template files for almost 6 months now and even after having some great results, there are little things that just can't be done. Unless iWeb 2.0 fixes those details it will be the end of iLife for me...

It is WYSIWYG only. I think the blogging function requires dotMac. A simple FTP transfer will allow you to move your whole project or just part of it up to any server. I use Cyberduck to copy these large collection of files.

iWeb kind of allows for multiple projects, but insists on writing them all out to the folder when you ask it to. Even for the minimum change. Seems to me that Apple really wants you to use the dotMac service. When you do, they claim it will only write what it needs to.

It is decent software for the uinitiated. You can make some nice looking pages without digging too much.

I learned from experience that you should replace the PNGs iWeb generates with JPEGs. The pages load so slowly with the bloated default PNGs.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

I don't understand why people insist that you have to use a .mac account to host. I'm not that smart but I figured out that you simply select "Publish to Folder" and it iWeb exports your whole website in a folder to your desktop. Then use any FTP program (like CyberDuck) to upload your site to whatever host you want.

Yes mr_g5, you can upload/keep your files where ever you want. However, if you don't use a .Mac account you cannot use comments in your blog, use password protection, you cannot use the counters, you cannot use RSS (not sure about this one) and the slideshows doesn't look as good as with .Mac.
When you are ready to publish your page, iWeb creates HTML files for ALL your projects/sites/pages, if you are using a .Mac account it will only upload the pages that had changed to your iDisk (this was fixed with the 1.1 patch). If you are going to publish somewhere else you have to select the files to upload/keep/delete by yourself.
