Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 4:26 PM (in response to Parky1101)Maybe I misread but are you opening it from the flash drive or your hard drive? I use 2 computers but I copy back and forth and replace the domain file on my hard drive... open from there.. not the flash drive. Then when I make changes I copy the file back to the flash drive and then to the other computer's hard drive to replace the one that's there.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 6:02 PM (in response to Jennifer Rovira)I had this same problem for a long time but I found a solution here that is really really crazy! I had to:
1) Move the domain and open iWeb so it creates a new domain file.
2) Close iWeb
3) Right click on the old domain file and click show contents.
4) Annoyingly COPY ALL of the old domain files (10 or 20 at a time) to the new domain file. Opening iWeb in between to ensure it was working. If I copied all at the same time, it failed every time!!
5) after all files are COPIED over, I could then open iWeb and it worked
I know this is crazy, but it worked for me a couple times when I had this exact same problem!!! FIX THIS APPLE!!Macbook - unibody, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 7:18 PM (in response to Parky1101)You could try creating a new domain file to see if domain file corruption is your problem like the last poster.
If that doesn't work you can try reinstalling the application. Make sure you backup your domain file(s) before doing so and delete the application and the .plist.
After a reinstall you need to run the updates and do a restart.iMac 24, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 4GB Ram
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 7:39 PM (in response to Jennifer Rovira)I have the same problem. I published my site to the web on my MacBook and then I have been able to use my Imac or the MacBook to make changes. It some how updates the other computer no matter which one I use. But tonight I say down to add a new client page and I web starts but nothing shows up. I need some help or I am going to have some very upset clients very soon.Mac Book Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

I combined a few of the tips together to find something that worked for me. First, because I had been opening the Domain file straight from my flash drive, I ejected the flash drive. This left no Domain file for iWeb to find, and it prompted to me to create a new one, which I did. I had iWeb save the Domain file to my desktop. (I'm running iWeb through iLife 09.) Anyways . . . once the new domain file was on the desktop, I dragged the one I really wanted to use from flash drive to my desktop. It asked me if I wanted to replace it, which I did. I opened up the file and everything worked fine.
That said, I am going to also take the suggestion of another poster to this thread and drag the Domain file to whichever computer I happen to be on FIRST, and then open up the file to work on. When done, I will drag it back to my flash drive, so I at least have the most recent copy of the Domain on my flash drive. But it is a much better idea to run it off the computer rather than my drive.
