    iWeb is dead and will no longer be supported

    You might want to use something like RapidWeaver

    Another nice product out there is Freeway. Fairly easy to use, and much more flexible than iWeb.

    you can still buy the 09 version of iweb online somewhere. I got the 09 suite on ebay for 30 dollars, brand new in a shrink wrapped unopened package

    iWeb is included in the pre-Lion versions of iLife. I can say for certain it is on the iLife '11 DVD. It was not included on my Air either. I just installed it from the '11 iLife DVD.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    For your web designing needs I would suggest a good text editor. That way you can learn what you're actually doing.

    iweb sucked anyhow.

    Freeway or RapidWeaver are better solutions if you are looking for that type of editing capability.

    iDVD is also no longer included FYI.

    RapidWeaver...http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rapidweaver/id402477569?mt=12

    Never understand why people ask a question then ignore the very first answer...and seemingly every other answer.

    I've always preferred Rapidweaver as well. Definitely worth looking into.

    The bulk of those seem to be issues related to people wanting a point and click don't code a damn thing type interface. I suppose one could also check out Coda, that was relatively decent the last time I used it as well though it is $20 more.

    Well that was the whole point of iWeb. In 2011, coding shouldn't be a pre-requisite to build a basic, yet decent website.

    You can still download iWeb from here (it's legit). Future updates are unlikely.

    Wow...Apple just gave iWeb away for online distribution via places like cnet? That's strange.

    Another vote for rapidweaver. I use that it has a lot of the drag and drop ability of iWeb but a lot more flexibility and power thanks to the available plug-ins. The volume of available themes is down right awesome, especially compared to the paltry amount for iWeb.

    iWeb's death knell really shouldn't have come as a surprise. It was not included in the latest iLife iteration, apple was moving away from publishing websites thanks to the surgence of social websites like facebook and with icloud they dropped all investigates of iweb support

    RapidWeaver = complex
    Sandvox = easy

    Yes it did. Second the options of Freeway or RapidWeaver.

    Also you posted this in the wrong forum fyi.



    ----------

    Thats a joke right? Most people don't need to code HTML by hand to do what they need. Nor should they.

    Not really - I was able to get my website up and running in RW in no time. RW gives me a lot of flexibility and options, if that's too complex for people then maybe something less powerful is needed

    When has coding become a requirement to building a basic yet decent website ? Did you mean mark up ? Because you don't need to do DOM manipulations through Javascript for a basic website. A few CSS tricks and plain HTML will do it.

    OP, do yourself a favor :

    - MacVim
    - w3 schools

    Mac sent copy of iLife but why not allow download?

    This is Mac at its worst. I persuaded my wife to move onto Mac, her brand new Macbook Pro with OSX Snow Leopard suffered two motherboard failures which Mac replaced before finally replacing the whole machine. The new MBP came with OSX Lion. But as others note, Lion ain't got no iWeb or iDVD.

    I understand that iWeb is a bit simple and outmoded, I also understand that Apple, like everyone else, needs to move on. But it works well and it's what her website is compiled in.

    So why cut iWeb so suddenly, with no warning, and make it so hard to get? Mac might not want to push it but how complicated would it be to let OSX lion users who actively look for it, to download from the app store?

    We have a solution: because the problem resulted from a faulty MBP, our Mac store is shipping us a free iLife '11 (which will take a week...)

    But this is Mac at its worst, my wife's hard-won readiness to go with Mac lies in tatters, and they've wasted hours of my life sorting her problem out.

    Also many of the programmes she used fine with Snow Leopard didn't work including Office for Mac 2004 (there's £219.99 Mac owes me for the upgrade).

    Mac fail.

    If you look a few posts up, you'll see a direct download link for iWeb.

    iWeb was pretty limited, and no one really used it...

    Actually I used iWeb to create several sites, albeit very simple ones. I don't have the time nor the inclination to learn HTML and iWeb allowed me to do exactly what I wanted to do very easily. I (for one) will miss iWeb because it allowed me to put my ideas on the internet.
