    I recently got a new hard drive and started over from scratch. I copied the iWeb app to the new applications folder, but now when I open it, the sites I built in it and maintain with it don't show up. Does anyone know the way way to 'point it' to the site folders on my HD?

    thanks

    Choose Finder>Go>Go to Folder and type ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/.

    This will show you where the file should be. You will need to find the old files and put them in this spot. Hope you have the old files on a backup drive. You will just copy the old files and paste them into the new iWeb file that was created when you re-installed iWeb.

    I do not use iWeb but have tried it to make sure it will work for you.

    I have attached 2 photos to show you what the new file looks like and then what you should have when you are done moving your files.
