    I am considering using iWeb to design my professional photography website. But I have a few vital questions.

    - Are you able to input HTML on any given page?

    - Are you able to add a third-party counter?

    - Are you able to create sub-addresses that don't include "web.mac.com...." and instead utilize your own domain, such as "yourdomain.com/portfolio/china"

    - Are you able to update your website on the web from any computer, or must it be from YOUR iWeb?

    - Are you able to create a customized template (for blogging for example) with any given dimensions (800 px, for example) and save it for future use for all blog posts?

    - From these questions, am I better off going with Rapidweaver, Wordpress, or some other service?

    Thanks for the help!

    Your decision here is simple. What is your level of experience? If you can write web languages like HTML, CSS, PHP, Ruby on Rails, etc... then you are probably not going to be happy with iWeb for the long Haul. If you can write html and CSS then get you one of the many free web editors out there, you will save some money and be much happier for the long haul. If you need or want a program like iWeb because of the easy of use you might look at Freeway Pro ( iWeb on steroids) I know in Freeway you can insert code into the different sections of the documents. Maybe in iWeb too??

    I don't use iWeb but knowing Apple they made it people friendly. Meaning they took a lot of the editing code directly out and all that stuff and stuck it in the background for people that just wanted an easy way to build a site. I don't think there is much freedom in that program, I could be wrong.

    I read in a post earlier that some people are setting up frames in iWeb and putting a blogging section in that way. Anyway,

    If you can build it, built it in WordPress :)

    Yes you are wrong. Granted it is made for its low learning curve and for ease of use. but if someone know a little code then it can only enhance iweb. I use iframes and counters and comments and much more in iweb.
    I find it easy to use and I like it. More and more users of dreamweaver and other editors come to iweb, and find something of value in it.
