I'm curious to see what other people have done with their iWeb pages. I'll have mine up soon once my iLife 06 gets delivered.

i need to play with it more, I've only spent 5-10 minutes so far, but you can see some if you go here: http://gsr.kwajo.com and click on the fourth link down, marked "Writing"


oh yeah, I should add that this is published on a non-dot mac server, so you lose out on the very cool slideshow features, but at least it proves that you can publish to another hosting source and the RSS feeds still work fine. it's hosted on my powermac G4 BTW

Alright well my page is finally starting to look halfway decent.

iWeb really is a terrific program; it's not complex at all but my webpage looks better than, say, something on MySpace.

here's a link:
http://web.mac.com/c.peters06/iWeb/Chris/Home.html

it's definately looking better - I have a cool photo section that I hope you all check out!

Hmm, so the slideshows use some server-side code? Does anyone know what needs to be installed on the server in order to make them work? Is that what Ajax is?

Edit: I've just done a View Source on Chris' site, and it seems to just be CSS and JavaScript. It should be possible to have the same slideshow effect on any old server :)

Edit 2: Yeah, it works.

So you don't have to publish to .mac? that's nice to know. it makes iWeb more appealing now. :)

it works?! how did you manage this?

Nermal
Jan 16, 2006, 07:34 PM
I just proclaimed that it works without testing it properly. It half-works - you can see the photos and cycle through them, and the "bar" up the top works properly, but you can't see the captions that you assign to the photos, and the shadows/reflections aren't working properly. I'll need to fiddle around a bit more :)

Edit: OK, there is something going on server-side. It's trying to link into "myphoto.jpg?transform=reflect" - some sort of server-side image processing.

kwajo.com
Jan 16, 2006, 09:01 PM
yeah i've been suspecting that there is some image processing going on, hence why they can't offer the slideshow interface on just any web host

Nermal
Jan 16, 2006, 09:16 PM
They could if they wanted to. The image processing could be done in iWeb, and the processed image could be uploaded as a separate file.

kwajo.com
Jan 16, 2006, 09:18 PM
you're right, but I think one of the parts of the slideshow script that is most important is the fact that it allows the image to remain untouched (for downloading) and keeps the file sizes smaller since they don't have to upload the image file for the reflection as well.
that being said I want to get the slideshows to work off my server, no way am I paying for dot mac again

Nermal
Jan 16, 2006, 09:22 PM
I might mess around with the scripts a little later on, and see whether I can get the reflections to link into a separate file. You will of course need to manually make reflected versions of all the photos :(

Just got my copy of iLife 06 and will get to creating a web page as I get around to buying an imac subscription. Just curious, does iweb have a preview option where I can sample what my sight will look like before uploading it? It would be great if I could start putting it together now and upload it when im ready.

Its funny that your nickname is "Crispy". I had a friend in college with the same nickname. It was quite fitting seeing as she put down about $100 of weed a week.;)

if you use safari or firefox they'll look almost exactly as they appear in iWeb. internet explorer for the most part too

How did you do this with multiple albums on one page? Did you use the About Me template. Explain how you did this. Great idea!

Thanks,

Hey everyone!

I completely renovated my iWeb page - half of it I did so that you all could see another theme in action, and half of it I did cuz I simply thought the old black background, white text was kinda boring.

I'm a teenager - it should be interesting!

Anyway, here's the link:

I'm still under the 50MB trial limit and my full sub is still en route from amazon so I don't have a photospage yet. I might just make homepage.mac.com photo pages since you use jpgs on that. I may go iWeb though, it does look pretty.

I don't know where they get these kinds of stats, because in the time I was there (5 years for B.S. and M.S) we didn't have anyone commit suicide. I think that's blown way out of proportion. Anyways, good luck with your Chem E program....there's plenty of time to see the light and switch to physics :p

It's still pretty raw, and I don't have many photos to work with (yet). I'm still playing around with some ideas. Originally, I used it to post some photos and movies of our New Year's party. Now, I think I might turn it into a sort of visual content resume - i.e. the "Ten Questions" page. I'm a sportswriter for my college newspaper, and this might be a good venue in which to present my clips to prospective employers. We'll see. (If that's what I end up doing, I should probably delete EVERYTHING else.) If you want a laugh, enjoy sports, and don't mind a lot of reading, it might be worth a look. I might turn some of my columns into podcasts, if I have the time.

Nice, but yours had the same problem mine did. Where makes the front page image a PNG and slow to load. I put a ~100kb JPG on mine and it turned it into a 500kb PNG. I resized the JPG in PS to where I wanted it, then put it on the front page, then set it to actual size in the inspector. Kept it as a JPG with the right file size. Works great if you aren't using a transparency.

Anyone have any insights on how to make Iweb sites show up on the search engines. I saw some info on metatags and other html suggestions but I'm just a novice and would like some more practical advice. I'm trying to set up a site for a business to and wonder if iWeb would be the most appropriate tool for me to use. Any advice would be welcome. Also, any way to change or modify the URL's..they are a bit lengthy...

Hey man I know it's older but I have some quick suggestions. I'd make your links have a rollover possibly pop-out with a white outline or underline. It will give your page more of a pop and the white would look really nice with your other colors.

Also if you guys have all of those other sites, I'd look into Purevolume (http://www.purevolume.com/). They have the best player quality and total interface I've seen and used on the web. Plus It is very active.
