OK, I thought I remembered a simpler workaround and here it is- and yes, it does involve making iWeb treat it as "Graphic Text" (like a Font that you have chosen to use that is not likely to be on anyone else's system like the script font I have chosen to use in a site I am currently working up for a local business: http://www.errors.thinkhost.com/golfguy/The_Golf_Guy/Welcome_News.html )I've been wrestling with the same problem. I'd like to have an "updated on..." and "Copyright" etc footer on my main web page .... but can't figure out how to do it!
If you make a text box and try to drag it into the footer, the page just extends to prevent you from going there. If you click on the footer it's framed, but then if you click on Text, a blank text box just appears in the middle of the page.
My patchwork solution was to switch to Appleworks, make a text box, type in the text I wanted, then cut and paste into my footer. (iWeb apparently thinks it's a graphic, then.) Seems a bit lame, though. Any other ideas out there?
+1 on this. i think the iWeb documentation actually covers this. Same principle for dragging images into and out of text box's.I accidentally did this by throwing things around in iWeb, but it's so easy it's stupid. Create a text box. Type your stuff in it wherever it lands. Size it as if it is going into the footer. Now... here's the "HARD" part... option-click-drag the textbox (it copies it) down into the footer. The new text box just falls into place. Then copy it, go to the next page, click in the footer area and paste!
