You can use any application that will open HTML files which, of course, iWeb doesn't!iMac 24, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 9, 2010 12:25 AM (in response to RH1)iWeb is a Mac only application.
You can edit any html code with an html editor such as TextWrangler, however making modification to the html code created by iWeb might be quite hard and time consuming. Also, opening an iWeb created site with Dreamweaver will probably not display correctly.
You will not be able to edit the site again in iWeb either - has no import facility.
Bottom line - if you want PC users to edit this site that you have created then don't use iWeb - find something else that is web based such as WordPress where everyone can access it online.MacBook Core 2 Duo, iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 9, 2010 6:49 PM (in response to Ethmoid)If I download WordPress, will it be able to open up my iWeb created website? Or will I have to start from scratch?
Currently Being ModeratedDec 10, 2010 12:32 AM (in response to RH1)Okay, you don't download WordPress - WordPress is what is known as a Content Management System being similar to Drupal and Joomla. You can access WordPress.com online and can create a site or a blog online and publish it and anyone can alter it online, so all you need are log in codes for people to access.
Your other alternative, if you already have hosting, is to install WordPress.org on your server - this will normally be an automatic install to your server of WordPress and a database and can be used with your existing domain name. Again, you customise and choose your template and people can access the site to make alterations by using the log in code and this can all be done on line.
This does however, mean re-creeating the site and you don't download WordPress.
Your other alternative is to re-build your site in DreamWeaver, there is DreamWeaver for Mac as well as PC and once you have re-built it, PC users can make alterations too.
DreamWeaver will open the html files from your iWeb site, but the site will probably not display correctly due to the code used, so in the long run, it will probably be better to choose a different package, either WordPress directly online or DreamWeaver and re-build your site.
