I have not been able to use this app at all, as iWeb Extender cannot find where to place the files on my .Mac iDisk. I tried the "publish to folder" option in iWeb first, and then drag and dropping the files into that folder, but the blog files were named differently.

The GUI overall looks very nice, but the documentation needs to be fixed in a large way. I can't use an app if either iWeb Extender can't find where to put the files or at least tell me where to put them (the help documentation doesn't specify).

Hey hey hey,

Thanks for the review!

I'm not quite sure what you are asking for with the target thing, email me at: me@grimbo.name and we can talk about it.

As for the stat counter stuff - you can basically create whatever statcounter you want. I use statcounter.com, and then paste the HTML code into the 'Paste Stat Counter Code Here' box in iWebExtender. I like the idea of tying placement of it to their stat counter element though.

Have a great week,
G

Hello,
I would like to know if the iWeb Extender should be saved in some iWeb folder so as to be integrated with it or it's a separate application that functuons by itself
Thank you.

Hi!

1.06b is a seperate program that you run after using iWeb's 'Publish to a Folder' feature. See http://iWebExtender.com/Documentation.html for a bit more complete description.

Direct iWeb integration is coming in a few more versions.

I have tried it and none of the things (counter, comments) show up. I have followed every instruction. The way it flattens the site is nice. If only I could get the other stuff to work...

Hi!

Thanks for the comment and rating!

The comment and stat counter insertion work fine ( see http://iWebExtender.com/Funk.html for an example ), but admittedly there is very little documentation on how to use them at the moment ( So far in the beta I have been spending all my time on fixing bugs rather than working on documentation - I'm a naughty naughty developer! (slaps own wrist)).

What documentation there is currently exists in the form of tooltips (hover the mouse over a control for a few seconds to see what it does). Almost every UI elements support this right now.

As a quick note, to use comments and trackbacks:

1] sign up for a free haloscan.com account
2] on the tab page entitled 'Comments and Stats' enter your username into the box provided, and check the 'Add Comments' checkbox.
3] Anywhere in your site you want comments, insert the text 'HaloscanComments' - and it will be replaced with the correct Haloscan code to generate a comment block.

Better documentation (and probably a new version supporting direct FTP) will be up this weekend.

Thanks!

I've added some basic documentation at:

http://iWebExtender.com/Documentation.html

This should help clarify how each of the features work.

Have a great weekend,

Thanks for the instructions, I guess I had no idea about the 'HaloscanComments' part that needed to be added manually - it works now!!

How about an option that will automatically place the comments section above the apple that iWeb generates? It would sure beat manually adding this text every time.
