After updating to Lion, I noticed my images were disappearing from my web pages in iWeb. Probably it had something to do with the fact that I moved the Domain.sites file to another location?

Anyways, has this been fixed yet?

Since Apple has announced that Mobile Me Web hosting will end next year, releasing this upgrade is a bit of a bad joke. If Apple wanted to be really nice, they would put out a new version of Pages with a simple Save as HTML option rather than their Save For iWeb Only And If You Don't Like It Tough Luck On You option

Agreed, will miss the simplicity of Mobile Me Web hosting, assuming you already are on Mobile Me, but apparently iweb will work elsewhere. Don't see why they had to abandon web hosting to get on with their cloud, but then I don't see why they have to abandon Rosetta but maybe Lion house cleaning wiped out necessary code to run it.

"This update is recommended for all iWeb 3 users."

That should read "This update is recommended for all 3 iWeb users."

Sorry, I just couldn't resist :)

I work as a graphic designer in print but still need to design and publish the occasional website. I know my way around HTML and Dreamweaver but I have to say that I love working in iWeb.

While not suitable for most professional projects, it is good for creating mockups and "quick-and-dirty" websites.

The genius of this application lies in its simplicity. I find myself concentrating purely on the design and not getting caught up in the technical details. Once I've established the look I go back over the website and adjust things so that I get the results I'm looking for.

It's ease of use, including drag-and-drop and automatic guides, make the process of creating websites more like fun and less like work.

That said, it has a lot of shortcomings which keep it from becoming a top-notch web design app.

I'm disappointed that Apple seems to have abandoned iWeb. With some work it could be great.

iWeb has basically been abandoned by Apple. It's way too expensive for what you get and that doesn't include the MobileMe subscription you have to purchase.

There are cheaper alternatives such as Goldfish or Bhttp://www.macupdate.com/img/submitsmall.pnglue Griffon, which is free.

iWeb '09 insists I need to Update entire site on MobileMe when only a page or two has been added. This is a bother and until they fix it or explain why it does so (maybe iWeb '09 changes all pages from previous version iWeb '08) I'm not happy with its updating of a Website. This issue seems at least somewhat common from reports on Apple's User forums and the only "fix" read is to delete some local iWeb support files and then republish entire site with or without first deleting site from MobileMe: I haven't done this "fix" yet.

I like the simplicity of the program, if one has a MobileMe account at least, but the above problem is not good.

From the response of users in the iWeb forum, it seems that the long awaited bug fix doesn't really fix anything very much at all.
iWeb still doesn't include the features that a lot of users have requested and the main one they added, the dysfunctional FTP, is a disaster for many.
iWeb is basically a good application - it just needs to be made to work out of the box and be developed in the same way as its main competition.
I find it astounding that reviewers for certain well known publications are reporting positively.
It makes you wonder if they have actually used the application.
Until the iWeb FTP actually works, optimization and SEO functionality are added and MobileMe is given a radical overhaul, the only option is to publish to a local folder if you want your site to be findable and viewable on a PC running IE.
My main problem with this latest version of the application is its tendency to screw up text and text hyperlinks in a random fashion. The only way to fix this is to delete the offending item, save, quit, reboot, add it back and republish!
Apple needs to apply some knowledgeable programmers to this application and to thoroughly test it prior to release before I would give it the rating that the "professional" reviewers have.

iWeb 3.0 is a much needed update, and a good update at that. While not adding a whole slew of new features, iWeb 3.0 is considerably faster than it's predecessor, in both editing sites and publishing them. In addition MobileMe Galleries created in Aperture FINALLY show up and work in iWeb (for me this is huge). While still not a perfect product (I wish I could make a web page with relative widths as opposed to fix widths - ie 90% vs. 800 px) the program is maturing very nicely.

Still doesn't fix the problem with MobileMe Galleries created in Aperture not showing up in iWeb (Galleries created in iPhoto show up just fine).

This is getting exceedingly frustrating. Maybe an Aperture update is needed.
