    And thus, I guess I'd need a .Mac account instead of a 3rd party webhost to utilize a blog from iWeb? I've uploaded my site I created in iWeb to my own ftp/web server for my site, but I read that I need to have a .mac account to publish my blog efficiently? Is this true? Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!

    No. Publish it to a folder, then upload it to your ftp site. What sucks about the blog in iWeb is that you would have to keep publishing it to your local drive everytime you make a new entry. Not sure if it's more advantageous if you registered to .mac.

    You can't have commenting turned on if you're hosting outside of .mac but there are 3rd party apps that will allow you to do this. Not sure of what they are though, sorry.

    I don't understand the problem. You say you have moved the iWeb created files to your server and apparently it is working (as you don't say otrherwise.) So what is the problem?

    iweb "add comment" missing

    i created a blog using iweb and allowed the "add comment" feature, i then published to a folder and uploaded it to hosting. On the website however, the "add comment" does not even show up, just "read more". help:(

    why not write a script that polls a directory and puts your stuff on your site? Or am I getting to complex?
