    Hey guys,

    I've been using iweb to build my website, www.chinahandsunited.org .
    It worked without any sign of crashing the first three weeks. But today, I think Casper the friendly ghost got into my iweb and started crashing the program, grand total of four times in a day, new world record. I'd hit a button, bitch ball comes up, and iweb freezes and disappears. Then I get that "iweb encountered error" message.

    The only thing I did different from the past weeks was that I put the Google Analytic code into the pages last night before I went to bed. The only other thing I did was put more pictures/designs into the pages.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    • Be sure to have the latest version of iWeb updating your software with Software Updater in the menu bar click on the Apple logo and choose “Software Update...”

    • Try deleting the preferences file:

    1. Quit iWeb
    2. Delete the following file:
    3. Relaunch iWeb
    If that doesn’t work... Retry it but instead of relaunching iWeb in 3. restart the computer and relaunch iWeb

    • Try repairing disk permissions:

    1. Go to Applications/Utilities
    2. Open Disk Utility
    3. Click Macintosh HD
    4. Click on Verify Disk Permissions
    5. Click Repair Disk Permissions.

    If that doesn't help then there may be a problem with an image you added. In this case you should try to find out which one... Which I think may not be so easy...

    Thanks a lot Giovannino!

    I'll give all of those things a try, and report back.

    Take care
