Since getting Lion, moving to iCloud and setting up hosting with GoDaddy (published to FTP and all that) I can edit iWeb pages but cannot add a new page to an existing site. Any thoughts?!

 

Thanks.

Maybe its a corrupt Domain file. Try creating a new site and drag each page from the top one down to it in turn.  After dragging each one down, try creating a new page in the top site until you find the corrupt one whose absence from the top site allows you to create a new page.

    Hey, Roddy -

     

    From the article:

    "Publish your website to a folder on the desktop and double click the index.html file to launch your website in the browser directly from your hard disk.

    If the site works OK, then you have a publishing problem.

    If the site is screwed up in anyway you then have to trouble shoot the application itself."

     

    The site worked fine when I double clicked the index.html file as described above. So a publishing problem means I need to contact GoDaddy.com? (I did do the Disk Permissions and Repair process and re-start that was also suggested.)

     

    Thanks.

    Can you now add a new page to a site?

    No, I cannot. And it is difficult to edit text on the pages I can access.

    The page is up and running! I think what happened is that I am used to the instant publishing through Apple when I edited in the past. Perhaps the process takes much longer now that I am hosted on GoDaddy? I am going to call them to confirm.

     

    Thanks for your help! I will update you if I learn anything new.

    Dear Roddy -

     

    GoDaddy confirmed that it can take up to 48 hours for all edits to appear on the website though at this point it is much, much faster than that.

     

    I do believe that the pages were also corrupted and so fixed that as per your suggestion.

     

    Many thanks!!!!
