    Is it possible to create rollovers in iWeb? I've them done in other people's pages.

    Basically I have text hyperlinks on my page in a grey colour. When a user hovers over it, I want it to change blue. This must be possible somehow.

    Sorry to hijack your thread, but I have a question. Are you able to upload to another website besides .Mac? I have created my own website, but I would like to use iWeb on my MBP to make changes.

    You can export websites created in iWeb to a folder, then ftp to whatever server you like.

    Now, give the OP his thread back! :p

    I've looked at the coloring of hyperlinks, and I think the way to do it is to select the linked text, then change the font color in the inspector. Other than this, I'm not sure what else to suggest.

    Ok, I understand that, but I am not able to connect to my website now, just to make changes?

    I don't understand your question I guess. Do you mean you don't have access to the website at this moment? If you'd like to modify a website constructed using a different program, I'm not sure how that works. I've not tried to import a website not created with iWeb. If you can be more specific with what you're trying to do (preferably on a new thread) you might get more attention to your post.

    If you know a little html you can hand code this yourself. Just access the html file of the page(s) on your site through iDisk > web folder. I've been doing a lot of hand coding on my iWeb site and it works flawlessly, however I've not done what your asking but it is possible this way.

    how to make image rollovers in iweb

    I spent an entire week trying to work this out. Now that I have, I can see the logic, but initially it was quite a steep learning curve. (Iweb 08/09)

    I set up my iweb site by publishing to a folder and using cyberduck (a free ftp client) to upload to my server (hostmonster). IMPORTANT: in cyberduck create a folder called public_html . (It should be totally empty at this stage), if not, delete its contents. When you drag your published iweb stuff into this folder only drag THE CONTENTS!! (eg- your domain name is Iweb will publish to a folder called this wont work. inside the jones folder are the folders you need to come directly off essentially you are just removing this phantom folder that iweb created.

    Steps: Create your iweb page in iweb how you like it.
    Create a separate page in iweb to host the image files you need for your rollovers.
    Drag the files onto this page and take note of their exact file names (after any editing)
    Disable the links to this page. ( I cant remember how to do this, but its in the help menu or somewhere else on the net)-easy stuff.
    On the page you want your rollovers, create a html snippet and use the code from this website
    it works! Follow the instructions on editing the code-very straightforward.
    a sample of what your file path should be:
    NOTE: when you click apply on the html snippet it will appear as a question mark until you have published and uploaded the project. The reason for this is that the files you need for the rollovers are hosted on a page that doesn`t exist on the net yet...right? after you have published it should appear ok in iweb too.
    I have found that if you have any errors with the page and you need to update, it is better to totally empty the contents of public_html and start fresh each time.

    Hope this helps. It sure would have saved me some time.
