    Ethmoid,  It doesn't matter any more iWeb is going away along with Mobile Me and iDisk as you know. Please go help some one else - you WIN.   I will attempt not to so  be 'ludicrous' and 'rediculous' as you put it and access professional Apple help. Thanks again for making me feel like an old fool.  Really  - Take Care

    iWeb is not going anywhere- it is an app and you can still use it - it works with Lion and Snow Leopard.

     

    Apple is not getting rid of it - possibly no support, but that does not mean that you can't use it any more.  You can, so you need do nothing as far as that is concerned.  You only need to find new hosting - it is MobileMe that won't be there any longer once it is replaced by iCloud - find new hosting and you can still use iWeb with it without a problem.  Just remember to choose Linux hosting and not Windows.

    Just tried to open iWeb (I have Lion OS) and nothing happened.  Now iWeb has a "?" mark over it.  Any ideas or help to open the program to make some changes to my website would be great!  Thanks!

    Did you see my post on the first page of this topic?  Make your User/Library visible as described and then use the script/application reference to open iWeb and select the domain file to open.

    Hi

    Wyodor was asking you to please turn off your cap lock button.  And in answer to your question, the real answer is NO.  There are some alternatives:

     

    Sandvox from Karelia software

    http://www.karelia.com/

     

    And RapidWeaver from RealMacSoftware

    http://www.realmacsoftware.com/

     

    but neither has exactly the same features with the the versitility and ease of use of iWeb.

    Thanks, to you and all others who are helping, this is why the net will survive!

    I feel like I'm on a ferris wheel with iWeb. On switching over from one hard drive to a new one everything worked fine until today when iWeb opens as it would for the first time. I have saved "My iWeb website" on the desktop in order to make it easier to transfer back. Ha! Reading the posts led me to using Go to navigate to the proper place where the Domain is stored. Unfortunately it is the starting blankone. I tried dragging individual and separate parts from my desktop, as well as draggomg the Domain to the trash, but it never replaces the original. Things that are stored on my backup are "assets.http/--.plist", "decalsbykoz.com", and "index.html". Another unfortunate thing is that I wiped my old hard drive information as well as my Time Machine drive. Going to my first Time Machine entry brings up the crappy Domain so that is out.

     

    Do you have any things you haven't said a thousand times before?

  • kt4ever Level 1 Level 1 (45 points)

    this is the solution i worked out with an apple tech! It worked for me

     

     

    After 2 hours on the phone with Apple Express tech the problem is solved.

     

    Go to Users/home/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iWeb.plist and drag file to trash. Also delete com.apple.iWeb.plist.lockfile. Empty trash.

    Open iweb, save a page. Close iweb. Open ~Library/Application Support/iweb/Domain. Drag Domain to trash. Empty trash. Put the Domain file from thumb drive backup in iWeb folder.

    Launch iWeb and all the web sites that were backed up are there!!!!!

  • Andrew Beswick Design Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Iweb is still such a great intuitive wed design tool.
    i have quite a few sites made in it - tweaked SEO and hosted on a domain host. site maps, etc all made too

     

    Frankly it scares me that upgrading can scupper iweb.

    I dont know how to get started in word press, and dont want to remake all my sites again on templated Word Press blog style sheets!

    Any adivce on this?

     

    I have backed up my iweb domain, but wonder if anything goes wrong, can i just drag back the HTML files from domain via FTP to my mac and into iweb?

     

    ie - www.hunterbailey.co.uk  is a site I made in iweb.

  • Ethmoid Level 6 Level 6 (10,520 points)

    iWeb has no import facility, so no you can't just drag your html files back into iWeb - it can't open them.

     

    It is your domain.sites file that you need to back up and keep because you need this for altering any data in iWeb.

     

    WordPress is very easy to use and you can do a lot with it, especially if you have a host such as GoDaddy or something similiar - you can install it directly on your server and you can do more with plugins etc., and you can change the templates without altering css at all.

     

    Also, if you type your url like this: http://www.hunterbailey.co.uk, you create a link which saves time.
