    I built my website using iWeb on a 2009 MBPro that I seldom use. I have a 2013 MBPro that I'd like to use to rebuild my site, using iWeb, but when I launch iWeb on the newer MBPro my site doesn't show up as it does on the 2009 MBPro.
    Under "help" in iWeb I'm advised to click on the "Visit Site Now" button at the bottom of the iWeb page, but this button is greyed out.
    Can anyone advise as to how I can bring my iWeb website into my newer MBPro?
    Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

    You'll find your website in Home Folder>Library>Application Support.iWeb>Domain. Copy that Domain file into the same location on the other Mac, and it should open in iWeb.

    Thank you Shmoo and Dave! Much appreciated! Problem solved!
    A further question: I followed your directions and was able to transfer iWeb to the newer computer and I updated the site. Now that everything is current... would copying the domain now reflect all recent adjustments and be equivalent to backing up my iWeb site?

    Thanks again.

    From the new Mac, yes it would.
