Hi,

I have just spend the last couple of hours fiddling with iWeb but I have come to the conclussion that it is very very stiff and rigid with very little possibility to change which font or color to be used in a template... Am I wrong?
I want to make a blog but don't want to "write it" in html my self - is there some other program with better possibilities you could recommend?

In my iWeb site, I've completely changed the theme, font, colors, and design elemenets. I just used the basic white template and removed all the items, and started from scratch.

Hi. I have the same problem as the OP. I can take out elements and rearrange them with ease, but every time I make a new page (even a blog post), that page follows the template, and I have to make my changes again. Any workaround for that?

Why not just select a page you've formatted and then duplicate it (command+D) to create an identical page, then edit the new page from there?

Yeah, that suggestion was posted on the .Mac blog

I ended up just writing the thing in HTML my self - though I'm not very good at that so it propperly even close to beeing W3C valid...
but I let my self be inspired by iWeb's templates so in some way I had some use of them...

if you like you can check out the result at http://west.users.whitehat.dk - I am currently considering buying a domain and hosting of my own but for now I'll stick with this free webhosting....
