AFAIK 3.04 is the highest version that exists (it hasn't been updated for several years) - my copy says it was created in 2009 and modified in July 2011.
When you say 'source files' you mean that your website seen in iWeb has reverted to an earlier version? iWeb stores its data in (user)/Library/Application Support/iWeb in a file called 'Domain'. This is the only way you can retrieve a site - iWeb can't re-import the published html files, so if that is the only 'Domain' file on your Mac then whatever in that is what you have and you can only update manually. You could check to see whether there is another Domain file anywhere else - it doesn't make a lot of sense that a system upgrade would have reverted this to an earlier version.
Download Find Any File and search for ".sites2". FAF can search areas that Spotlight can't like invisible folders, system folders and packages. If there's another file with the ".sites2" file extension on your hard drive FAF will find it.
OK, let's just confirm a few details: am I correct in supposing that:
- You had a Mac with an earlier operating system, and an iWeb site's Domain file with a later version than that which now exists
- You hadn't moved the Domain file to somewhere else for convenience
- You upgraded this Mac to Snow Leopard without doing a full erase, so that all the non-system files were left alone
- You are still using the same User account that you were before
- The Domain file you are using is in (user)/Library/Application Support/iWeb
- You had made no external backup of your Mac before you upgraded
If all these suppositions are true we are left with a mystery, since just upgrading the system might conceivably erase the Domain file (unlikely) but I don't see how it could mysteriously revert it to an older version. You would have had to have started saving from iWeb to a different location, leaving the old Domain file alone, and made changes in that for a time, and then managed to lose this later version somehow.
Anyway, if you are in the end unable to locate the correct Domain file I'm afraid you're going to have to recreate the changes manually - you can of course use the published site as a references, and copy text and download images to use in the updating process. And please back everything up as you go!
You can try these two troubleshooting routines but it's a long shot:
1 - delete the iWeb preference file, com.apple.iWeb.plist, that resides in your
User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
2 - delete iWeb's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iWeb folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).
3 - launch iWeb and try again.
If that doesn't help continue with:
- move the domain file from your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder to the Desktop.
- launch iWeb, create a new test site, save the new domain file and close iWeb.
- go to the your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder and delete the new domain file.
- move your original domain file from the Desktop to the iWeb folder.
- launch iWeb and try again.
Please accept my apologies for taking so long in getting back to you.
Roger; I can cofirm that things were as you outlined except I had not backed up the earlier source files; silly. I had not used time machine but kept copies of documents and images on external drive.
I have also carried out suggestions made by toad but with no success.
A couple of days ago I started to reconstruct the complete site (not too big) and hopefully now I will have it uploaded at the weekend.
Thank you both again for your willingness to help.
