    I have used iWeb to make a simple webpage. I do not have a .mac account so am using cyberduck to FTP. Do I have to upload all my files each time I make a change to the site?

    I searched the forums for answers and seemed like there was iWebflinger or something that meant you could just upload changed files but people seemed to say it was very buggy.

    Thanks

    I do exactly the same thing, and yes, I upload the entire site every time.

    Use the synchronise feature of transmit with the following settings.

    Direction:
    Upload

    Method:
    Mirror

    That should speed it up.

    Also when you specify a bookmark to your FTP server, be sure to set the local path to the folder containing your iWeb site, so you don't have to navigate to it each time.

    I just upload those folders that I've changed, if I change the news page that folder gets uploaded, if I don't change it I don't upload it.

    I'm waiting for Transmit 4 which according to my inside source (I asked them) will have proper iWeb support.

    What is proper iWeb support? You publish to a folder and Sync or upload, I don't see what else is needed on Transmits part.

    Working out which files have actually changed since last time as iWeb replaces ALL the files each time ;).

    Sorry for late reply - bit busy over the holiday weekend. Will check out transmit - anything would be useful as my site gets bigger!

    All you have to do is use the funciton "mirror" in Transmit and it only moves the changed files
