    Thanks Ethmoid


    I only use iweb to design a site, then export it and FTP it to a domain host www.123-reg.com.

    Im wondering if Word press allows me to design, then export the same way?

    I have not found time to even attempt learning wordpress.

     

    Is there a absolute beginners guide to wordpress you could recommend i read?

    I know it has many more additions and interesting facets to it now.

    The whole point of WordPress is that you don't need to do that - it is one of the Content Management Systems like Drupal and Joomla, so you do it all online.

     

    As I said in my previous post, if you already have a host you need to look at 123Reg and see what other add ons they offer - most offer Drupal or Joomla and WordPess.  You just do a one click installation of WordPress.org and a database is created and you choose a log in name and password and that is how you access the admin section of the site and you do all the updating online - one click publishing online with no need to upload at all.

     

    If 123Reg don't offer this, then you can use the free WordPress.com instead, but you can't do as much with it. You can however upgrade to use a domain name with it, but if you want to do this, it would be better to use WordPress.org instead. 

     

    If you go to http://wordpress.org, there are lots of tutorial to get you started and it is not hard.  You can get books from Amazon or http://www.macprovideo.com provide two tutorials.

    Actually, the TOP choice that come up when I clicked your link:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=absolute+beginners+guide+to+wordpress

     

    is LYNDA.com, where I've been very happily studying WordPress for the past two

    months.  Check out the WordPress 3 Essential Training.  All you need is a basic

    membership and you can go through the video tutorials at your own pace.  It's been

    a godsend to me.  I'm re-working three sites with it and the smoothness and easy

    maneuverability within the platform is fabulous.  Good luck.  Enjoy WordPress.

    I have deided to go with Weebly.com as the platform I will migrate to from iWeb.  i think this one of the best options out there.  Clearly nothing is coming from Apple.

    When I download a template from http://www.websitetemplates.org/ and open the index.html file I can't really see any images so that I can relocate them or something. Am I supposed to install Photoshop for that or there's a Mac alternative to that?

    Why do you ask in the iWeb forum?

    Well, because it works if I open the same file with other software. So, I concluded that the reason must be somewhere in iWeb. Did I get it wrong?

    You never mentioned that you opened the file with iWeb.

     

    And if you did open the file with iWeb, you would get an error.

     

    iWeb can only open its own domain files.

     

    You can use these tempates by copy/pasting the text and images to an iWeb page.

     

    The result can be very nice. Here's a page with such template :
