Thought it might be interesting to see what you guys would want in iWeb 2.0. Hopefully some Apple person will read this. Here are a few of my wishes...

Better photo galleries, wysiwyg flash maybe?
Form maker
Ability to publish just the changes and save backups
Better HTML
HTML capable pages, like an "insert code here" box
Meta tag generator
Better compression of images, site optimizer...
Portable blog
Mouseovers/Hover, drop down menus

    I'd REALLY like to see the ability to export/import existing iWeb sites (I use iWeb for teaching, and some semesters I don't teach certain classes and would really like to be able to get those sites out of the main iWeb interface while they're dormant).

    I really like the wish list of Mark Mcloed. I will try to expand it with my own.

    - A search field for the whole site, not just blog.

    - A logo that says "iChat Me". It would indicate if I am online or not (like we can do with Skype)

    - iChat Group. A small Java iChat client (for text at least) than logged user could start to participate in a multi user discussion. An easy "press here" button would start the iChat Java Client and automaticaly log them on my small ichat network.

    - Statisticts like the one I actually get from http://www.statcounter.com/ but not just from 100 reaader.

    - Map of where reader come from. I know it can be done but I prefer when the thing I use often to be include in iWeb directly.

    - A RSS that would indicate a modification anywhere on the website not just in the blog.

    - Better management of multiple WebSite. A way to open and close many different web site. I had a Large section on Karting (couple of hundred meg) than did not need upgrade. Because of many bug with the publish to Mac I had to do a lot of Publish All including this large website that did not need any updating.

    - A better organisation inside the Domain file. Maybe structure like the web site itself.

    - Blog a little more flexible: Information on the side, etc...

    - A way to update from any web browser.

    and more

    You've covered some of my interests/needs:

    • Rollover buttons and cascading/pulldown buttons/menus
    • Data Entry for eMail lists and information gathering and capture
    • Ability to build/add Meta tags
    • Ability to link blogs with Google, et al
    • Ability to publish individual websites separately

    I would be happy to try and report on a beta version.

    Basically, I like iWeb with its ease and elegance. I want to take it beyond personal gossip.

    Thanks
