    I created a website with iweb, and when I try to publish to folder, I get this error:
    "Can’t create the file “mwmac_white.png.” The disk may be damaged or full, or you may not have sufficient access privileges."

    And it won't finish the publishing.:mad: I'm using godaddy and fetch for the hosting/ftp, so I need to publish to a folder, right?? I did a trial run before the site was complete and it was all fine, so I went back and changed some images/colors in iweb, and now I get this error.

    I only used my own photos, and two istock photos that I paid for, and I have no idea what this error means. I'm pretty new at this, but I already got it to work once so this is annoying...

    I fixed it...
    I quit iweb,
    deleted the file: User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iweb.plist
    then I relaunched iweb and it published fine... now it's up and running!!
    Thanks anyway!

    That file is "Made on a Mac' that appears in footers if selected. Did you try to change this colour?

    You could try not including this by removing the check-mark in iWeb. Found under Insert | Button.

    If all is fine then rechecking it should solve your problem.

    Edit: Too slow typing.

    Hi Jason,
    I'm sure you resolved this ages ago... but for the next person>
    Open a finder window, look for library (Click), preferences (Click) and then delete the file com.apple.iweb.plist
