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

"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.

Interesting, another iApp update with an opaque comment about "compatibility". Methinks these are 10.5.2 "pre-patches" so that when 10.5.2 is released, all the iApps continue to work smoothly. Which suggests significant enough changes to 10.5.2 that rather a lot that of stuff that hasn't been pre-tested with 10.5.2 and patched accordingly is going to crash and burn when people upgrade.

I've made comments like this before, but let me get this off my chest once again. On the one hand we have these dumbed-down apps that can let a newbie post pictures of the new kid to share with the folks back in Peoria. On the other we have the expensive, hard-to-learn, bloated and ever-buggy Dreamweaver. Why for the love of God can't we have something in between, a fairly simple and reasonably inexpensive full-service WYSIWG Web page creation tool. Why does no software developer get the point that here's an important ecological niche to be filled, that, if done right, could make a ton of money?

I guess the iWeb team has listened to costumers about the very cryptic URLs in iWeb 06, but the change they have made in iWeb 08, to compensate for that, is just to simplified. The URL of subpages made with iWeb 08 will now be called exactly the same as what you call that subpage - the name that also shows in your navigation menu. That is a very big problem, because I'm from Denmark I use the danish characters æ, ø and å in my webpage titles, and you can guess what happens when æ, ø or å is included in the URL. No Windows IE users can see that page. Ex. my daughters 1 year birthday is named '1 års fødselsdag' (1 year birthday) and when that show up in the URL as www.mypage.dk/1_års_fødselsdag.html no one except Safari users will be able to see that page. I then name the page something like '365 dage' (365 days) because then it will work and most people will know what that page is about, but it shouldn't have to to be like that. So please Apple, at least make iWeb 08 change URLs that contain less compatible characters that wont work in most peoples browsers. Otherwise I have to come up with really obscure titles for my subpages, because I can't just call them what I want to.

RapidWeaver is so much better - more stable, flexible, manages multiple sites (iWeb can, but not without other apps), and has a solid development community. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/13216/rapidweaver

It is slow, it can't manage more than one website, it doesn't export more than one website, Quicktime's poster doesn't work, it supports google Adsense and nothing else? it doesn't publish on FTP, it doesn't support flash movies drag and drop, it could have blog integration with facebook but it does not. its concept looks the same of Pages, which I don't like.

I can't believe I'm giving a negative rating to an Apple product, this is a first. But only to warn people not to buy iWeb/iLife until they get the bugs fixed in iWeb '08. My small business site I created in iWeb 06 is not rendering correctly in iWeb '08 2.0.1 I didn't start using '08 until the 2.0.1 fix was issued, so this is all under 2.0.1. I didn't move or rename my site, I opened it in 2.0.1 which had made a few changes to the '06 created pages. I went thru and corrected the changes, mainly font & spacing changes until it resembled the site I created and saved. In iWeb the pages look great. But when I publish the pages several font and spacing changes are made in the published pages different from the changes I corrected in converting a '06 site to '08, mainly: some fonts are converted to bold and spacing changes are made so that it is no longer WYSIWYG: the pages in iWeb still look great, the published pages look terrible and unusable. The process of publishing the pages is changing fonts and spacing so that the published pages are far different than the unpublished pages. It's no longer WYSIWYG like iWeb '06/1.x was. I've given this feedback to Apple and posted this on their support forum which is full of many similar and other complaints on iWeb '08. iWeb '06 1.1.2 was great, but this one needs much work! Unfortunately I can't recommend it unless they issue a major fix. In the meantime, RapidWeaver, Sandvox, and iWeb '06 are good alternatives.

What is really strange after I updated Iweb to version 2 and uploaden the same page, it loads a lot slower then the uploaded version with version 1.02. As proof visit www.visualantis.com/foundation is the old version with 1.02 and www.visualantis.com/foundation2 the new version. After that I did another test, to see if you turn your first page title into index, and so not create an iweb created index. As an example for that you can see www.visualantis.com/foundation3 You know the funny thing of it all is, when I had version 1 I was even able to edit my entire site in the right display in dreamweaver or golive, but after the first update this became an impossibility. What else is there... What is really great and suprisingly never mentioned is that you can simple copy and paste your entire site content to illustrator and then rasterize it and make slides from there. Export this to web with HTML and then you can edit it in dreamweaver or whatever you want. You can even choose the size of each slide similar are making a site in illustrator from scratch. The iweb version: http://www.visualantis.com/maurice and the illustrator version http://www.visualantis.com/maurice.html Count the loading time for yourself, its an amazing difference. I really tried everything also html-optimizer but the loading time never went better then version 1.0X So the conclusion is: IF you want to edit your site in dreamweaver then stick with verison 1.0 for others stick with 1.02 or if you use the illustrator conversion trick then 2.02 would do the trick too. I am able to create the same page in iweb in minutes which takes me hours in Illustrator alone so there you go.... keep up the smile, mac rules the mind of the creative people....

Aperture till only works so so with iWeb. The images is in random order in iWebs media browser and the quality of the thumbs and slideshow images in iWeb are inferior to the quality when iWeb is used in conjunction with iPhoto.
