    Long story short. Dont try to reformat your Mac when you are drunk, and accidently delete your external drive with your time machine backup! Thats a big NONO! haha

    OK, I have my website published to my webhosting.. I downloaded the contents back to a folder.

    How do I import that website back into iWeb app to continue working on it... I tried to find the root folder to where iWeb stores your saved site.. But cant seem to find it!

    Anyone help muah!?

    While on a Mac iWeb stores sites in a proprietary format, only when they are uploaded or exported do they become .html, .jpg, etc. files. iWeb can't import an existing site. Sorry.

    Not as far as I know. It's the primary reason I decided not to use iWeb for a site, I didn't want to redo it from scratch as it's an existing site that's quite extensive.

    DewGuy1999 is right. iWeb is a lock-in from that point of view. You can, however, download the published site and/or edit it with other applications like Coda, Dreamweaver, etc. if you need to do revisions.
