Are all of the domain files named differently and located in your Users/Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder? If not try this:
1 - put a copy of each domain file in that folder and rename them to indicate the website inside.
2 - download and use iWeb Multi Domain to open domain files with iWeb and to switch between them. You can download it from Toad's Cellar.
It's just an Applescript offered by Cyclosaurus primarily for use with Lion but works fine with all system versions. It might just be what's needed for you to change domain files.
Tried your suggestion, but still same issues. The problem seems to be that even though I can open iWeb on my older Mac and update my site, the "domain.site" file on my older Mac is not being updated somehow (or at least shows an old date).
Very odd since each time I open iWeb on my older Mac, it is the most recent version of the site. I thought iWeb looks for this "domain.site" file and uses it to open most recent version?
Is it possible that the "domain.site" file is being saved somewhere else? I did a find file search in my old Mac and nothing comes up other than file that is in User/Library/Application Support/iWeb.
Give this a try:
- move the domain file from your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder to the Desktop.
- launch iWeb, create a new test site, save the new domain file and close iWeb.
- go to the your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder and delete the new domain file.
- move your original domain file from the Desktop to the iWeb folder.
- launch iWeb and try again.
Try the application described below. It was designed primarily for use with Lion but works with all system versions.
To open your domain file in Lion or to switch between multiple domain files Cyclosaurus has provided us with the following script that you can make into an Applescript application with Script Editor. Open Script Editor, copy and paste the script below into Script Editor's window and save as an application.
do shell script "/usr/bin/defaults write com.apple.iWeb iWebDefaultsDocumentPath -boolean no"
tell application "iWeb" to activate
You can download an already compiled version with this link: iWeb Switch Domain.
Just launch the application, find and select the domain file you want to open and it will open with iWeb. It modifies the iWeb preference file each time it's launched so one can switch between domain files.
WARNING: iWeb Switch Domain will overwrite an existing Domain.sites2 file if you select to create a new domain in the same folder. So rename your domain files once they've been created to something other than the default name.
