Greetings:

I thought I would post this as there might be others who are either trying or thinking about using Iweb as a tool to create your website.

In the ealy going it looked like Iweb was quit limiting as it did not allow you to do a few things that would be considered normal using more complicated software. These things might include features like slideshows running right inside Iweb, comment features running inside Iweb, setting up your site so a (linked) page would NOT take the viewer off your site but would open the linked page as a separate page. Finally, Apple says you cannot run "Flash" in IWeb sites but that is not correct.

Here is a link to a site I've built using Iweb with (all) the features that Apple says one cannot do with their software.

Most of the work-arounds came from this site that is a wonderful resource of how do do stuff:

This guy has even figured out how to do cool stuff like drop down menu's and other cool stuff....

Have fun

Cool. Thanks! Is your site hosted on .Mac? That is one of the reasons I haven't fooled with iWeb...I haven't had .mac in a LONG time.

I built my site with iWeb also. I, for one , actually like that there are limitations. This allows me to make a cleaner site with less bells and whistles. Works for me :wink:
