    So I made a site in iWeb and I published it to a folder and it worked fine. I could open up the index file on my computer and it launched the site fine, but when I uploaded it to my web space (through my school) it won't work. It's set to be shared and when you go to the address you just get a few lines of html, but nothing loads. Specifically you see this:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><title></title><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url= 4F2520B1-766C-4058-8CCA-DCA5EB839A53/Welcome.html" /></head><body></body></html>

    Any ideas why it won't load the site? I've got the index file and the folder with everything else in it uploaded and I just get the code.

    My experience is that two index.html files are generated: one in the folder you saved it in and one in the level below that contains the rest of your web page. Try to make sure you upload both and see what happens.

    Not sure if I'm being clear...

    First bug I have noticed is that it sometimes does not update the page hyperlinks that are automatically generated when you visit the site after it is published to a folder.

    The second bug is that if you rename a picture then try to import (after deleting the original) the renamed image when it is published it does not use the new image but instead uses the original one that was deleted.

    I am not surprised that you may have discovered another bug. But it does create two index files and the actual homepage.

    What may help if you create a folder and publish the entire site to that folder then upload the contents to your website.
