Is there another website builder as easy to use as IWeb?


I have been exploring other website builders and they all seem to need knowledge of how to use HTML code.

IWeb didn't need that and was sooooooo easy to use.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), IWeb 3.0.3

    No.  iWeb is still useable, even up to Mt. Lion.  I'd apply the latest updater, however, iWeb 3.0.4, so as to have the latest (and last) update. 


    There is a new application about to be released that is touted to be an iWeb replacement: iWeb Replacement App Coming Soon!

    There is an App in the works but there has been no info on pricing or features. ( )


    For the time being I am continuing to use iWeb

  • Roddy Level 6 (17,265 points)

    This app is a lot cheaper than most with more and better features than the other drag and drop style ones...



    Even the most backward of businesses are realising the need for mobile designs now that the demise of traditional designs inevitable due to the decline in sales of personal computers. If you don't have a mobile version of your site you can forget about fame and fortune via the internet. One of my business sites is now bringing in over 60% via the mobile version. This is in comparison to 25% about four months ago. There must have been a lot of iPad Minis and Nexus 7s sold at Xmas!


    This app may help those who are frightened by code to create mobile designs...

    I am so thrilled. I have spent the last week trying out other webpage builders and they are a disaster. Typical PC users making things so impractical and complicated that you have to pay a fortune to get someone to build a website for you!!!  If Apple can make a simple to use webpage builder why can't all the PC wonks make one???


    I will continue with IWeb.


    Thanks so much OT


    Thanks to Jeff Nitchke too!


    You've both given me hope!

  • Jeff Nitschke Level 4 (2,655 points)

    Not a problem. I love the flexability over the design that iWeb gives a person.


    Here is my site:

    Hello Jeff et al:


    I have a new problem I've spent a lot of time trying to make my my website look better. Today after making some changes one of my pages" Varieties" is totally messed up when published. The fonts aren't right, the background colors aren't supposed to be green. It's a total mess. What could be happening?

    Also on the other pages the banners within the top photo aren't the width I set them at, they're far too narrow.

    See this page under "Troubleshooting"...



    How to publish to a local folder to test yor site...



    If the locally published version of your site is screwed up, follow the troubleshooting steps under "Fix iWeb" on the first page referred to above.

    Hello Roddy

    I did what you suggested and the Varieties page was fine on the Desktop published file.(except for the yext banner shrinkage--so that must have been something I've done. Any suggestions on that? Theyre text boxes sitting on top of the photo; should I make them shapes instead?

    But, when I went to look for the IWeb preferences there were'nt any! Could it be ILife90 instead, as that's how I got my IWeb? One problem may be is that I am running an old IMac--pre-Intel with OS10.5.8 so can't get version 3.0.4 of IWeb?

    Thanks, MIchael


    p.s. where in Scotland are you from? I was born in the Lake District in the same town as WIlliam Wordsworth!

    Use the metrics inspector to set your image sizes.


    Make sure you are looking for the preferences in the user library in your Home folder - not the system library.


    I have just returned to Scotland for an extended visit after spending 18 years in California.

    You're a genius Roddy! Your IWebformusicians is brilliant. My varieties page is fixed by following the steps you suggested. Now to tackle the banner problem. I'll look first in your banner suggestions. Thanks so much!

  • Jeff Nitschke Level 4 (2,655 points)

    Here is a how-to video I did a while back that shows how I put a site together:

    Hello Roddy

    I do use the metric inspector to set my image sizes.

    But anyhow, I tried using shapes on my banner instead of text boxes and they work just fine thanks.

    You were right about not being in the right library! But there are no IWeb Preferences in the Home/libraryPreferences.


    Scotland in winter must be quite a shock to your system after 18 years in CA!

    Thanks Jeff

    I'll study it!

  • Roddy Level 6 (17,265 points)

    The path is -  Home Folder/Library/Preferences/


    When I left LA it was 78º - Glasgow is 28º right now!
