    Yes. As long as you have iWeb on the other computert you can create and publish website from it.  You can even build multiple websites on one compter if you'd like.  Do you know how to add a new site when working on your current site?


    Do you want the other computer to also have your current website available for editing?  You need to explain exactly what you are trying to accomplish so we don't spin our wheels offering solutions.


    Also in Lion the Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.


    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"

    delay 1

    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.
