I need an easy to use web designer/editor and iWeb looks like my best bet.


I know I'll have to buy an old version of iLife to get it. BUT, I don't know if it will actually work on my OS.

 

Any info would be helpful! Thanks!

    iWeb '09 will work without any problem under OS X Lion. However, as you have to buy iLife, I recommend you to buy iLife '11 instead, with the most recent applications versions and new OS X Lion features as Photo Stream.

     

    After installing iLife, open  > Software Update to install the most recent version

    It should work although there are functions that no longer work properly since Apple dropped it from iLife. There are viable replacements such as

     

    RapidWeaver 5.3.1

    Sandvox

    iDVD and iWeb aren't included anymore with new Macs because Apple discontinued them with iLife '11. However, they are included on iLife '11 (if you buy it on a DVD).

     

    Also, iWeb is a iLife application, not iWork. iWork has got Numbers, Keynote and Pages

    Ok, I see that iLife 11 does have iWeb but it wasn't updated. Last update was the 09 version.

     

    But everyone seems to agree that it'll run ok on my OSX 10.7.5?

     

    I think that iWeb was updated with iLife '11, but it was a minor update without any new feature. It will work properly with OS X 10.7.5

    What functions will no longer work?

    The Google Map widget (can be worked around by using the standard HTML snippet and Google map code and iFrame code), the YouTube widget (same workaround), iWeb hit counter (many 3rd party counters available), Google Adsense widget (can add the Adsense code via the iWeb SEO applcation) and the MobileMe Gallery widget.

     

    Note:  if you have any interest in using iDVD the iLife 09 disk is the version to purdhase as it will give you all of the available themes for iDVD.
