    I have a group of students who want to use iWeb to create a website to show off some of their art work for university interviews. They have been creating the site and saving it before logging off a machine. They have been wanting to do more work on their websites, but have found no sign of the pages they created when they log into a machine and load up iWeb. Initially I thought it was because they were logging in on a machine different to the one that they had started creating the site on, so I got them to log onto the original machine, but still nothing.

    I then got them to export the files to HTML and then to re-open them in iWeb, but it won't let you do that.

    Any suggestions on how I may solve this problem? The students have network accounts, rather than stand-alone machines that they work on, so I know it's something to do with that.

    Solution

    After some more research, I believe I have found the answer to my own question.

    When you create a site in iWeb it saves it in its own special format in a file called 'Domain' in ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb. I've found that if the student saves this file to their network space, they will be able to access their work on other computers.

    Sorted! :D
