    No support for 32 bit applications


    2017 MacBook Pro, running High Sierra.
    I have been postponing an update to Mojave because it will not support my 32 bit applications like iWeb, which has been quite adequate for my modest website. I realize I'll soon have to re-build my website with some other solution. Any suggestions for web building software that does not entail monthly subscription fees? Thanks!

    What about solutions that don't have monthly fee's...but does have a one-time purchase price?

    I should have mentioned that I prefer a one-time purchase price... but most web solutions appear to be subscriptions.

    I thought Mojave still allowed 32 bit applications? Whatever macOS 10.15 is, will not support 32 bit applications.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    That is correct, Mojave will give you a warning and is the last version that will support 32-bit apps.

    OK, that's reassuring. I read a post on an Apple thread which indicated any OS after High Sierra would not support 32-bit:

    I can confirm that I'm using multiple 32-bit apps on macOS 10.4.3 without issue.

    This looks promising:

    I would hope it's 64-bit, but you can verify that by downloading a trial version. Then go to the Apple Menu > About This Mac > Overview > System Report > Software > Applications

    Great...then I may have a solution for ya. According to an article I was reading regarding iWeb...the last update the iWeb app received was back in July, 2011. In this article is mentions an app that they're calling the "spiritual successor" to iWeb is an app called "Everweb". I guess Everweb is supposed to work, act, and feel similar to iWeb.

    The article I was reading seems to have been written by what looks like an independant author...and not by someone trying to sell Everweb. And...MacWorld reviewed Everweb...and seems to consider it a pretty good app.

    Here's a link to Everweb. It has a one-time purchase price of $79.99.

    https://www.everwebapp.com/pricing.html

    There are other webpage apps out there in this price range...but it sounded like you were looking for something as close to iWeb as possible...which this Everweb app sounds like it is.

    HTH,

    The app (Sparkle) member usagora mentioned was one of the other options I came across as well.
