Hey guys, I just realized looking trough some sites created in i-Web and realized how most of them are look-alike and that I'm getting fed up with the i-web look of webpages allround!

So here's the competition:
Post links of website made in iWeb not looking like they're made in iWeb. The best one wins a great applause from me....;)

So for me to start here's my contribution:
www.martin_somora.szm.sk {I know it looks like it was made in iWeb!:( }

Your first page doesn't look very iWeb but the photo pages do. That will be the real test for everyone. :)

I also was curious to in find out what language it was written in. After some googling, I realised Slovakian.... had I looked at your "location" in your post I could have saved myself some time! ;)

Yeah, that's weird. The thumbnails are fine. :confused:

Is there an advertisement meant to be popping up in the bottom right corner? Is that intentional? :)

The pictures came out weird in the slideshow, that's right. I assume it's because some errors while uploading it {I used golive for that}.

The advertisment is there because it's on a free webhosting site szm.sk

If You know of any good free webhosting sites please let me know!

Anyway any links with Your design? {apparently non-iWeb looking, but made in iWeb???} :rolleyes:

Okay, so here's one that I threw together really quickly. Bear in mind, it's not a real site, I just made it to try to make it look like it wasn't made in iWeb. There are things I might clean up about it, but let me know what you think.

I'm trying to make a website for my church and would like to use iWeb, but I don't want it to look like I used iWeb. How do you guys do it, and did you run into problems later (like iWeb not recognizing something)?

I would just use GoLive or something but I really like the slideshow and blogging capabilities in iWeb (and the ease of use) - I just want to customize it.

Any suggestions that may help me?

It really depends on how much not like iWeb you want it to look like. If your goal is to get away from the default look of the templates that are provided with iWeb, this isn't that hard to do. If your goal is to change the way that navigation works (having the navigation at the side, for example, instead of at the top), then this is substantially more difficult and, at this point, I'd recommend using GoLive instead.

If you are looking for the former, however, all you really need to do is be creative. You can adjust the page width, the header and footer heights, and so on. The level of customizability that is built into iWeb is not insubstantial, and you can make some pretty non-iWeb looking sites just by playing around. Give it a try.

Zombocom!=iWeb. Funny though.

I'd say that the other site is not meant to be ironic, it's just in the process of getting set up.

Thanks. I can probably pull it off, just move a few things around, etc.

I mainly want to know if I add elements in by hand (html) will that screw it up when I open it in iWeb? (for example; I might want to add google ads into it)

After you publish a site, you cannot, I repeat, CANNOT reopen a page in iWeb. When you open iWeb you are opening the stored .xml file, not the html files. So, once you publish, then you modify the html to make a form, then you send it up to your host. You can't see the form inside iWeb.

So, if you want to customize a page with a form, or something else (i.e. adds) it has to be on one page that you're not going to change in iWeb again. If you do, you'll have to edit the code again after you publish it. Also, keep a copy of your modified html file separate from your site, as every time you publish from iWeb it will get overwritten with the unedited page the iWeb puts out.

one thing i have noticed from the get go all iWeb sites seem to have size 14 or larger fonts and really nasty css. give your type some lovin and that will help a ton to set it off as not so iWeb. they feel like tonka toys on the web, but they arent as much fun...

Some of your links are a bit screwed up. Like if you click on the word email next to the the email button it links to your resume PDF. The "See the projects" and "see how it was made" on the left side main page don't do anything either. Overall it's a very nice site though. Makes me really want to redo mine.

My god you must have 20 mb png files loaded on that thing. It takes forever to load, even on a 4500 mb down connection. You really have to work on the graphics...that's the problem with iWeb (converting everything to huge ass png files = takes forever to load)

I really like how you integrated the postcard viewer, simpleviewer (flashbased?) and the map - of course along with different look to the rest. I was wondering how 'easy' it is to update the information in iweb. Are you having to go through and restructure each page (or cut & paste) everytime?

So, if I were to be in the market for a typical "My life" type of website (with some mp3's of cover songs, blog, etc), where should I look to for free hosting? (Preferably something that plays nice with iWeb)

Looks nice, but I'd use a uniform font throughout. The bold first letter in your name at the top is distracting (the first thing I noticed was that the letters B J were bold). Maybe the text at the bottom should be uniform as well.

Yeah, I was playing around with font to make it a little more interesting... I don't like those bold letters either. But i'm keeping "weblog." bold, as I want it to catch your eye more than just another nav link at the bottom. Thanks for the input.

Postcard viewer and simpleviewer in my site are made with a free program called iphotoexport. You just select the photos you want and then it does the rest for you. I then just upload the page to my .mac account and make links to those pages in i web. Pretty easy!

I find the photos are much easier to look at this way and they load much faster than using the iweb photo pages and slide shows.

Hi Daz (boardaddict.com) or anyone

I notice in your site you appear to have been able to reduce the space between the left border of the webpage and the left border of the browser window. I have been unable to do this and it is very frustrating. When I alter the width of the webpage only the right hand side moves in and out.

Any tips on how you managed to do this?

Gabrielnaylor,
New to the Mac stuff here. I have been maintaining websites via FrontPage (Window) - Got the Mac to experiment with such tools as iWeb.
I love what you have done - very talented and skilled and tasteful.
I wish to ask you: OK, you use iWeb to produce this (I repeat, I am brand new to Mac - just received MBP 3 weeks ago!) to put it all together and publish. WHAT DO YOU USE to create all the graphics, boxes, complex scripts/fonts, shadows and other effects, etc...
I'll appreciate your input! And any recommendation. I do have Dreamweaver on board, but I am DYING to try more flexible and off the cuff web tools!

Any advice re: a decent vector drawing program (a la Coreldraw) and something good, but not so expensive as Mac Photoshop? I want to experiment with my new MBP before making all kinds of purchases!

Well, to be honest... I create all of my illustrations on a copy of Adobe Photoshop for WindowsXP... then move them into iweb and create my website. Also... you can probably find some .exe files on different forums that will allow you to download the photoshop trial version and bypass the code for verification. I have several friends that do that. Fortunately for me... mine is free at work. I just got an imac like two weeks ago and this was my very first website outside of myspace. I also use istockphoto.com for most of my artwork. There is no need to draw anything anymore. Vector images can be bought for about a buck. So I buy a few images and collage them together with photoshop and a little creative writing. works pretty good. One more thing... if you have a friend that purchased photoshop... the Adobe liscense is for 2 users/installations. Ask if you can borrow it... that is also a legal way of doing it...

Thanks for the kudos...

The stuff you guys are creating is astounding. Simply gorgeous. Every site on this thread.

I just don't get it, though. I guess I need to dig deeper into iWeb. I'd like to know more about your workflow.

Do you start with a template then replace the graphics? And how come some of you have real text in your pages, and some of you have the (more iWeb common) images as text? Obviously the latter isn't very search engine friendly, so it's not something I could use.

Any tip sites or tutorials out there that go beyond simply creating sites from templates?

Hey whats up heavy doody... as far as I know... to create a website in iweb, you must start as a template. What I did for mine was start with a blank page on the black style. I select everything on the page and then delete. All of my pages are pre-created in adobe photoshop. The reason I do this is because it allows for more creative control. Also because i know absolutely nothing about HTML FLASH or any kind of web code. You can go to my website and right click where my text is and you will see that the entire page is a jpeg. I also create my links in adobe photoshop... and transfer them as transparent .gif files. The gallery I made is just jpegs resized in iweb with links attached to them. I am still researching how to incorporate simple viewer for a more professional look. Some people have already done it... so it is possible. So for me... the best way to create a non-template website is to just create your own template in photoshop or another illustration software. If you have any other questions or ideas I'd love to hear them... just let me know. Hope this helps.

When Contribute wouldn't work with my MacBook Core 2 Duo, I used iWeb to reproduce (and improve) the design of our existing site, a literary magazine:

www.contrarymagazine.com

Frankly, I think iWeb can do anything.

Hello again. I posted this comment months ago, but I forgot to mention an important side effect. It used to take us about a week, working full-time, to publish our magazine using Contribute. The same work, with iWeb, takes about a day.

You can do just about anything with iWeb if you begin with the blank page from one of the templates, modify it to suit your style, and then duplicate it to produce the rest of your site. In our case, we were trying to reproduce the look of an existing site. Here are before and after URLS:

BEFORE iWeb:

http://www.contrarymagazine.com/indexA06.html

AFTER iWeb:

http://www.contrarymagazine.com/Contrary/Plum.html

The point was to replicate, not so much to improve, but some people think the iWeb version looks better. It's certainly easier to publish. I'm looking forward to seeing what iWeb 08 can do and the rumored iWeb Pro.

I very much like the Graphics page :D as the rest looks nice but I'd say not iWebish but just pleasant on the eyes.

Well here is mine…simple just to show my art off and really not much more as I'm working on a new design ;)

Lot's of feedback welcome as building a site is somewhat away from my major, Fine Art (at least I think so). Can anyone else comment about the text used. It looks different on my iMac then on my girlfriends iBook and I'm not sure if it's me and the screen or my eyes are going bad :o
Thanks…

This was created entirely in iWeb, but I'm optimizing the speed by changing the html in GoLive. Mainly, I've made each page point to one central "main.css" instead of a separate css file for each page. Also, I've pointed each page to a single set of images for page and main table backgrounds instead of background images that are in each page's "Files" folder, which means that the background images get cached in the browser's memory and load faster from then on. Those two changes speed up page load time incredibly!

Thanks Fiasco. I just tried to find ways of avoiding everything iWeb seemed to insist on. Like a menu at the top with a default font, which I turned off, and made my own buttons as hyperlinks to other pages. My business partner made a company DVD with a similar layout so I thought I'd try and replicate elements of that in some way. Unlike my previous Photoshop-heavy attempts, I made this almost entirely in iWeb, with their shapes, grads etc. which was really manageable. I really like the software in it's ease of use. It's definitely got its limitations (like no built in rollover buttons) but otherwise it's a great way to get a site online with little or no web experience, and a bit of imagination/determination.

The site is done with Iweb, the forum isn't.

tell me what you think, I m curious to know if everything works properly for you guys.

"Wicked-sick" cool mate!!!

PS: I loved reading "A sound of thunder" as a kid. I don't like what they did with the movie in having "waves of space time" change the future in sequences, because in the book they just journeyed back into the future and found it all different. So although some of their plot needed a little more explanation, your illustrations are just beyond cool!

I'll also add that I found the site design very, very cool, (and reminded me a little of "Children of the Lost city" with some of the retro-futurama stuff), but just a little wide. But overall, way, way cool. Maybe I just love the themes hey? ;)

Hi all, is Firefox an issue with iWeb? I mainly use Firefox (because I'm a rabid blogger and Safari has issues with that) but it seems that Firefox is having trouble with text display in iWeb pages... or maybe that is pages hosted on .mac accounts? I'll start another thread.

Hi Lucky, domain hosting and the software you use are usually 2 totally different things. You should be able to use iWeb with any service out there OK? If it's your first time doing a website, make sure you read through all the iWeb tutorial stuff you can take, ask questions here, and then when you've completely tried and tested the website preview functions (usually a browser buttons in the few other web design packages I've tried) and have clicked around and checked it looks the way you like it, then and only then publish the site to your Lunar pages account.

Can you cancel it? I don't know anything about Lunar pages and it might be perfectly fine, but always ask here first about hosts. There's some really good deals out there. Lunar's probably fine though, and if you are in a contract for a year that's fine as well, just keep us in mind for next year's subscription — we can help you find a good deal.

Note on publishing: keep all the emails from Lunar cause you'll need the server directory and passwords to enter into the iweb publishing page.

Relax, you'll learn this stuff one day. Play with it. It's fun. You're at the front of a smallish learning curve (if you're not going into professional web design) — so play with iWeb, read a few basic tutorials, and you should be fine in a few weeks and publishing stuff. But right now, learn by doing. Click on stuff. Change stuff. Radically alter stuff. And then preview how it all works... find that "browser" preview button thing iWeb MUST have....

...anyone with iWeb help LuckyLevy out?

The poster before me gave you some really great advice but I would add a little something and it may be controversial. If as you state you really don't know what you are doing you might want to check out .mac. They offer a trial subscription. You can get it when you are ready to publish to try it out. This is the easiest way and the least problematic for a novice. You click one button and you're done. I know someone will say it's slow or any other negatives but I have yet to find anything that does not have its supporters and its haters. Costs nothing to try.
Best of luck

Mar 31, 2008, 07:38 PM
Would lucky then have to do "domain forwarding"?

Personally I think once Lucky's only got to get the 3 bits of information from Lunar and Lucky's fine.

1. hostname
2. username
3. Password

That's not too hard is it? Once Lucky's got them in his iWeb publisher account FTP page (whatever it's called in iWeb) Lucky's fine hey? See, Lucky's already paid for a domain and hosting service. Once anyone types in the above 3 answers into iWeb, you can publish the whole site with one click can't you? iWeb has SITE publish button doesn't it? Or is it image by image and page by page?

After you publish a site, you cannot, I repeat, CANNOT reopen a page in iWeb. When you open iWeb you are opening the stored .xml file, not the html files. So, once you publish, then you modify the html to make a form, then you send it up to your host. You can't see the form inside iWeb.

So, if you want to customize a page with a form, or something else (i.e. adds) it has to be on one page that you're not going to change in iWeb again. If you do, you'll have to edit the code again after you publish it. Also, keep a copy of your modified html file separate from your site, as every time you publish from iWeb it will get overwritten with the unedited page the iWeb puts out.

Hi Snowy,
You spell things out so clearly above, and yet (as someone who'd just looking at iWeb for the first time today) I still need elaboration.
I want to put together a web site for my one-man (me) video production company, and I want to be able to change some of the content (i.e. samples of videos) as I finish new projects; maybe too add testimonials from happy clients (if and when I get them).
So are you saying this is hard to do? i.e., will it be hard for me to update my iWeb pages?
Cheers,
malch

Hi all,
apart from some of the code going waaaay to the right, is it really that bad? (This is a non-coder speaking... just learning the basics).

Is it normal to see so many div's like this? If so, surely iWeb's doing some neat code, better than what I remember my GoLive pages doing anyway. :eek:



<div id="id5" style="height: 30px; left: 35px; position: absolute; top: 761px; width: 274px; z-index: 1; " class="style_SkipStroke_3">

<div class="text-content graphic_textbox_layout_style_default_External_274_30" style="padding: 0px; ">
<div class="graphic_textbox_layout_style_default">

I'm interested in what other professional web designers think of this approach — just "scroll right" to see all the images. I don't know if I've seen that before on a portfolio piece but it seems to work. What do others think?

Actually I've seen that on quite a few portfolio sites. I would do that for mine too... if I can ever figure out how to get a non-iweb looking site done in iweb.

I've mentioned this before but it's been totally redesigned:

templescene.com (http://www.templescene.com)


The thing that really gives it away as an iWeb site is the blog layout on the front page - unfortunately it's not very customisable (especially the light-coloured links).

But I think we've made a good effort with the rest of it.

PS - sorry it plays music I think we can be forgiven because that's kind of the point of the site :)

I like exploring your new site, especially like the way different kind of graphics blending together. One small suggestion: you may like to consider replacing the three floating objects (above Home, Portfolio and Contact) with ones that has got the same cardboard texture (with the sides showing)? Those buttons for me are the only thing that seem slightly out-of-place on the page.

I think that if Apple keeps updating iWeb to meet pro standards, it could easily outmatch Dreamweaver. I hate all iWeb templates, so I always start with a blank page and create the layouts with shapes, and integrate iWork's Pages templates and design ideas into iWeb. I am creating a website for my small business, IT IS NOT COMPLETE but you can still see how the layout works out well.

Actually, the page is 768x1024 cuz I was trying to keep it on the small size, to avoid making people resize, so no sure why it appears so big for you.
(I've downsized it a bit already anyway - thanks for the suggestion.)

Thanks, I'm glad y'all liked the site.

The top header was designed in Photoshop. There is a background color (black) w/ an orange color wash for depth, then finally a texture overlay. All were created in Photoshop then inserted into iWeb.

The tabs themselves were all created in iWeb by using the shape tool with rounded corners. They are placed behind the "wooden" bar (also created in Photoshop) to give the impression that they are "cut off" at the bottom.

The roll-over colors are all applied to the text that is actually overlaying the "buttons". The text is turned into a hyperlink, then the hyperlink properties are adjusted to match my preferences. I alter all the colors using the RGB sliders in the color inspector.

OK, now you're convincing me that iWeb might be worth a try.

Edit: Having learnt a good bit of CSS and HTML, etc. the whole themes thing bothers me still. It's like the program is in denial about CSS, also from what I've read it creates a CSS file for every page, making things unnecessarily bloated - I can't see this being a good option for a streamlined website, but I suppose it makes the whole thing easier to edit for clients.

shanitonyc
Sep 25, 2008, 08:40 AM
You can choose a 'theme' of 'Blank Page' and then build your own from there.
Pick Black or White (blank), and you can change the color.
Would love to see some examples of 'html snippets'.
You may be right about the 'bloating' but maybe it's not That noticeable speed-wise?

I created the basic slide show in flash, then plashed the file in my .mac account then I used this site http://www.freevideocoding.com/
to generate the code for me, then using Iwebs html snippet i copied the code, you can play with the size parameters to get it looking right.

Thanks for the kudos on the site. The site is in process of being rebuilt with the rounded tabs on on the pages. We did the most popular pages first, and have been slooooooowly getting to the other pages.

This is one major problem for iWeb, because you have basically recreate everything if you make a design adjustment. Sure, you can copy and paste or duplicate page, but it still takes a while.

Hi,
I think you are refering to the slider in the flash "news block", it is a vector graphic made with flash, and activated with actionscript.

Nice one!
Hasn't been much going on with this thread lately, good to have some fresh blood. :)
Just my two cents, but I'm on a 12" at the moment, and the bottom half of your intro page is out of sight, and not really necessary anyway.
If you condense that page it could have more impact. (?)
(You can also put a text box around your quicktime to make that a link, so you can click on the movie, or the 'enter site' button.
I used a quicktime on my intro page, but didn't want to make it too big for loading speed... 'showing' the control helps that I think... but I never really liked the appearance of that one, so I chose not to show it on mine.
Might be worth finding a tweak somewhere to give it a different appearance.
A friend pointed me to flashden.org which is pretty awesome. Not sure what there is applicable to iweb, but if you come across anything, it would be good to hear. Thanks for breathing some life back into the thread.

So I went to your site and once there I had a page with nothing other than click here to enter, I did then I have no information again, I have to click again to get a little bit of information, then you push a website design without showing anything you can do and tell me that for my money you do not garantee that the site will be up all the time. I know that no site can offer "all the time", but you actually tell us that your little server may not be up to par.
My question why should I choose your service? I think you will be lucky if people even stay as long as I did.

Or even go to the site at all when they receive a notice that the link is requesting access through port 8000. I sure never would- so I have no idea what is being offered. :confused:

Uhmmm...I'm sorry, but i didn't see any web design. The navigation was horrible, and why would anyone pay you to host their site on your server that might go down for 24 hours, when they can purchase a hosting package from GoDaddy for about the same money that has multiple redundancy?

Just a tip, always have a nav bar that allows the user to go back to the home page.

And it was one of the most iWeb looking things I've ever seen. It's like a high school kid trying to start a business. What, is your server an iMac? ;) Or are you getting one of those "unlimited" web-hosting plans and just reselling, with the promise of "doing the work for them" in iWeb? ;)

Yeah... must say I pretty much agree... 'nuff said.

For anyone that cares, the link i mentioned earlier is flashden.net not 'org'.
It's got some very cool, inspiring things, but I'm not sure exactly what can be used in iweb via 'snippets' or other means.
If anyone has any knowledge, I would be forever grateful...

now... back to trashing 001... for, if nothing else, missing the point...

Flashden has some great things and some very talented people who contribute. You can also get some of what is offered (it not very expensive) and use it as a learning tool.
You can embed almost anything using the snippet function in iweb. Sometimes you have to play a little with the window's size but it is not a big deal. check out this site iwebfaq.org (http://iwebfaq.org) for information on how to do it.

I just created my site in iweb, I used this thread as inspiration on how to break away from iweb templates. So, Thanks to everybody who posted!

Hey all.
Just thought I'd weigh in and give a thumbs-up to nadelmandesign.
I think what you've done is very nice!
Hey Nicholas, how did you do the slideshows...??

erfukuda, you seem to have missed the point.
This thread is more to encourage and inspire non-iweb-type designs, not just to show what you've done with standard iweb templates...
nothing 'personal'... but...

Does anyone have any good ideas or examples of 'html snippets'??

Great thread. Great iWeb sites. Here's one I came up with: www.perezrick.com. I think I managed to get away from that canned iWeb look altogether but I would appreciate your input. The only thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to add in a slideshow without using one of those photo pages. Seems I could have done it with the earlier ver of iWeb, but not with the current one.

Hi Mactrack, youve got some nice paintings on your site, nice clean looking site.
The iweb photopage is very tidy and i think would work well for your site.
Other than that you can find lots of slideshows online that you could use.
I use flash to create a rolling slideshow on my home page and then iwebs photo page for my gallery.
See here

Good Luck.

Thanks, Domh. Love your site. I had seen it before I made my first post. So you need to know how to use Flash in order to create the rolling slideshow on your home page. Pity. I don't know the first thing about it. I wonder if iMovie could be used for that instead. Don't know that it does continuously looping clips like yours though. Re slideshows in general, there are a couple of slideshow alternatives mentioned in this thread which look good, but I think they all plug into the slideshow button in iWeb. And that button only seems to be usable in an iWeb photopage. I can't use that page because I can't format it to look like the photogrids I use in my site and I haven't been able to create a hybrid version of it with hidden photos that would just allow me to use the slideshow feature. The problem in that case is that if you hide the photos you end up hiding the slideshow button as well. That wasn't the case with the earlier ver of iWeb.

Nice site Mitou. The esthetics of it really have gone a long way from the typical iWeb look. I'd be curious to know how you got the Pay Now funcitonality plugged in.

The pay now button is provided by paypal. I don't have php since I am on .ME. I got the button and used a html snippet.

Heya..

Sorry to sound harsh but I think the site looks very unprofessional, the font size and colors don't work.

I redesign every other day. Right now it has shadows, but I rarely use them. They slow things too much.

btw. My counter doesn't seem to advance if the site is approached via a masked domain name, like the one above. It does work, though. If I enter the site via the mac server, the counter sum jumps forward. I kinda wish it would just act normal, but it does work.

Also, my magazine is actually four websites behaving as though they are one. I found that is the fastest for everyone.

Ok, I am new to forums, new to iweb, new to criticism, so be gentle- never-mind, just be honest.
I have created a new site for our surf camp. It needed to appeal to kids but also be organized so parents could figure out how to pay us ;-). I would really like feedback, if it is possible at this point. I am not interested in having my ego stroked; just looking for good ideas and suggestions.

hey guys, i'm new to mac and iweb. i havent create any pages on iweb yet but im looking to learn more about it. all your sites are amazing. what other software do you guys use along with Iweb to build your sites ?

Check out our website for our new company:

http://www.gotgotneed.com

The opening page is very a straightforward logo, but I've tried to make the rest of the site avoid the iWeb look. It's quite Quicktime heavy, so would appreciate comments on download time etc. All thoughts welcome.

I'd love to get some simple animation in there, roll over buttons etc. but have no html knowledge. Any suggestions?

Cheers.

Safari gives a malware warning with your site. Is the warning accurate?

i'm not a technical guy, just willing to tinker until i find something that is easy and works. made www.goodcausephoto.com w/ iweb '06. hosted at 1and1.com. has google ads and i can update the site from anywhere with web accessible device (that is... i DO NOT have to open up iweb and edit, save, publish, then FTP). I have found a better way. updating site takes about 2 minutes. i update the gallery links just as you might update a blog.

FYI... galleries are linked to my smugmug account, which also took a little tinkering to get it to work with my own site, but now it is pretty seamless.

I'm sure there are other ways, but I've recently fallen in love with sprout. check out www.sproutbuilder.com. Build whatever you want on sprout, the copy the code into iweb. for '06, you'll need use something like iwebmore after publishing the site. later versions of iweb allow you to use the html snippet feature. at www.goodcausephoto.com all of the "recently galleries" are updated remotely without ever touching iweb.
