What's this, a program that actually works? That's not shock enough for you? How about a developer that actually responds and fixes bugs when you report them? It works with Leopard. Apple's Dirty Tricks Committee made sure you'd have to jump through hoops to publish your iWeb created site anywhere besides .Mac. The larger my site got the longer it took to upload the whole thing to the server every time I updated the least little thing. Then came Easy iWeb Publisher 2.0 to the rescue. It worked but only if I reconfigured and removed a space the program placed before entry fields every time I used it. Not a big deal. It's freeware and it worked. I wrote to the developer anyway and reported the bug. He sent me 2.0.1 that fixed it restoring my faith in software developers as people with the possibility of possessing a soul.

Easy iWeb publishing works for me the FIRST time I publish to my register.com web site. However, after it is published the first time I can not publish it. I get the message "Unable to close datastream at /Users/"myname"/. As a work around, (which is a real pain!) I use Classic FTP to delete the web site. Only after I delete everything, will iWeb publish again. I have tried the various options of Overwrite "only changed files & all files" without success. I get the same error message. I suspect the problem that I am having is something I am doing wrong or a peculiarity with "register.com" I would appreciate any suggestions that anyone has. Thank you! Bret C

I designed a website in iWeb and publish via a free web host. I use Easy iWeb Publisher to upload changes. It has worked fine for several months but now when I try and upload it says it can't find remote directory or fail to upload file: index.html at /Users/ It worked perfectly fine before and I haven't done anything different, what the heck is going on???

I have used Easy iweb publisher with one website, but when I add the second configuration and try to check it, it never completes. The dial just keeps spinning. I have no trouble with the first site or configuration. Can someone help me with this?

DOWNLOADING EASY iWEB PUBLISHER Hi MACUPDATE ADMIN Thanks for your speedy reply to my problem suggesting "Try using another browser to download the file" I did as you suggested : I tried Camino and Firefox under Mac, and Internet Explorer running under PC emulation using VMware Fusion. They each gave the same result: all I got was a .htm copy of the page that I was clicking the download linkage on. What happens is this: 1. I bring up the www.plyxim.com/free page ... no problem 2. Then I click on Easy iWeb Publisher v5.0 3. Which takes me to: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21666 4. This takes me to a page telling all about Easy iWeb Publisher 5.0.1 which includes a "Download Now (561K)" linkage (which seems to point to the exact same page I'm already looking at) 5. I click on the "Download Now" link. 6. Which does a split second link to another Macupdate page that goes so fast I can't read the URL it's going to ... and then it returns me to exactly the same page I'm was on before (i.e. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21666) 7. In the Downloadfolder on my Mac there is certainly a 52K file called 21666.html ... but this is just an image of the http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21666 page and not a copy of the software to be downloaded. I am very ready to think that I am doing something stupid but could it be possible that there is an error on page http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21666 in that it contains an incorrect linkage ... ???? Would it be possible for you to try the Download Now link for Easy iWeb Publisher on page http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21666 to see if it works for you and let me know what I am doing wrong. Many thanks for your patience. Personym

It was recommended to me that I download this application to publish my website. I am having trouble using it and I would really appreciate some help. When ever I try and check my configuration or try and publish the website, the application comes up with unexpected termination. What could be causing this. I checked with my hosting website and they said the configuration sounded correct. Thanks for the help!

I've got questions, not a review -- sorry, but would love advice! I've got an old and many-page website through my university that only permits sftp connections, not ftp. Will this work there, and in the old subdomains? Also, will it change the index's url address? I don't want to complicate other people's links to it. Thanks!

After trying many times to upload optimized versions of my iWeb-created site within iWeb, only to find that I shot down the whole site (????), - at least I couldn't find it anymore..., Easy iWeb Publisher 5.0.1. did the job perfectly. So from now on I'll be able to work on my site and publish it without fearing to loose contact. Great application!

Just trying it out.. so far so good.. a few UI bugs, and the user-interface could use some consolidation, i.e. too many drawers for such a simple program. But nice and simple so far.. good tool, not just for iWeb, but for any web design tool that publishes it's files to a local folder.

Works as advertised. I have multiple websites using subdomains and was able to save paths and login info into individual configurations for simple toggling as needed. Yes, it really is only a customized ftp client, but it has been optimized for iWeb use and is (in my opinion) intuitive and elegant as all Mac software should be. iWeb has a perfectly good uploading solution that has (selfishly) been restricted to MobileMe domains and until Apple sees the light, Easy iWeb Publisher is going to bridge that gap for me...

As an FTP uploader its fine. However to put iweb in the name is a little disingenuous as it has nothing to do with iWeb. Any FTP uploader on macupdate or elsewhere will do precisely the same function.

This is a great program. Be sure you know which folder your site is supposed to be in (ask your host) and there's nothing to it. I do have one question: I have a couple subdomains that go into folders within my main folder. Can this program send files into a nested folder? I saw a comment on an earlier version that said it couldn't. Can 2.0?

Easy Iweb Publisher seems easy to use - until you try to use it. First, it gives you no clues as to how to log in to your website - and at least with mine, there's one login system for editing and another for other stuff (and not knowing anything about how they work, that's WHY I wanted to use this soiftware!). Once I was finally able to get it configured, it asked me what I wanted to upload. Uhhh...why ask ME? I'm the one who doesn't know, remember? After an hour of aborted attempts I learn I'm not supposed to be uploading the folder called "site" (that would be too logical to have to explain, right?) but instead have to upload my whole folder iWeb created, along with all the folders in it. So that ground away for over an hour (it was a very simple site layout - I don't KNOW how to make it complicated) - and finally it was done - "successfully uploaded"! And it doesn't work. Nothing - just a blank page. All the files are on the server just how Easy IWeb Published laid them out - but the site does not come up. So I deleted it all off the server and started...again. Same results - nothing. So I created a one-page, no pictures, all text site to try. It uploaded that successfully as well - and it doesn't work either. I've talked to people using the same server, and they understand html-whatever and ftp this and that...and have no problems at all. They say it's a bulletproof server with no special requirements. I guess except the one that causes "Easy" to upload stuff and cause it to not work. I suppose you get what you pay for - but I'm not happy at wasting hours over two days messing around with this thing. Nonexistent help files, no response to inquiries....forget support - sure, it's free, but if it doiesn't work you darned well should offer support. Back to square one and try to find another uploading program - hopefully one that works. I'd give this thing a "minus" for the wasted time were it possible, especially since my questions remain unanswered. but maybe there are SO many questions from people with the same problem the guy (or company, whatever) has just given up. Rating = worse than awful.

When I upload the site, it puts all sub-folders in one folder into a nested folder list.. should be.. files/1folder files/2folder files/3folder etc.. instead it does this.. files/1folder/2folder/3folder...etc/

I just uploaded www.cigarhistory.info containing 122.5Mb and 1300 pictures in 15 sites and 90 pages. Well, uploaded most. Three sites didn't load. Bibliography with total of 11 text pages (some quite large which would print out to 150+ 9point two column pages); two other sites with their top of the page links and total of 19 pages of pix/text didn't upload. I'm in 10.3.9 and latest easy iweb publisher. Attempting to reload those three sites individually results in disappearing status bar and nothing happening. Any ideas?

What a terrific program! I'd been banging my head against the wall trying to upload my iWeb-created site using my hosting company's painfully (and needlessly) complex software. Easy iWeb Publisher makes the process simple - as it should be, for those of us who aren't techies. I did experience a few glitches, thanks in large part to not being familiar with the relationship between FTP programs and firewalls, but developer Scott Finney patiently and cheerfully helped me get where I wanted to go. In the process, he made a few changes in the program to make it even easier for users - so there's now a v1.3.3, and I highly recommend it!

I was one who was frustrated by some shortcomings on the earlier version - and they have now been fixed. So it's a really good way (for me) to work on my sites now. Thanks to the developer for the hard work! :D

I need to step in here for a second. I oversee the use of computers by about 170+ inidividuals. The physical work site that I oversee is a Mac based site. Now in regard to the negative feedback of this product, not to sound condescending, to coin a phrase, but anyone who cannot figure out how to use this has something wrong. Since the physical site who's systems and processes I manage utilizes a high level of department to department web publishing, and the users range in ability from tchnologically inept to moderate knowledge, I think that is a good barometer of the use of this product. I have not had one problem, and neither have my users. There have never been any issues with it. The program is a simple ftp program that does exactly what it seems to have been built for, minimize the steps in publishing a web page from iWeb to a level that even the most technologically challenged users could successfully publish their info. When examining this program an egocentric viewpoint cannot be utilized, rather and understanding of what it is meant for. I have read reviews that state an FTP is enough for this task and that this program is not anyhting fantastic; in response to that, don't use it then. For those who have little knowledge and need a simple publishing solution taht even a 5 year old could use with success (and they can) this is a heck of a great program.

I have been following this program's development. Each time I have downloaded it, tried it and deleted it. This last update is the first time I have seen it upload any files. The progress bar is a nice touch. It does some weird things though. It will progress and then poof it goes back to zero. Also, it deleted, not updated, a whole section of my site. I guess I would like to see it work with my website. Can I give you my logs and see if we can get this working? Thanks! Dave

Just tried it for the first time, and it can automatically upload only CHANGED files or all files, whatever you wish, as well it overwrites all those files which are already on the server automatically, not like Cyberduck or other non-automated (for this purpose) apps. To make it short: This app rocks, thank you. Works like a charm.
