    Hello,

    This is my first post. I'm still learning how to use all the applications on my mac. Right now I'm trying to figure out how iWeb works.

    I have already a few questions :

    1. If a create a website on my mac using iWeb, can a second person work on it, I mean update it, on his/her mac ? How ?

    2. How can I get password protection for my website ?

    3. I want to upload pdf files to my website which can be downloaded by all the visitors of the website. How do I do that ?

    4. Is it possible to create a page where you first see a list and if you click on one line, a subcategory opens and shows another list ?

    I'm sorry for my English, I'm from Europe (Luxemburg actually :) )


    If you can only answer some of my questions but not all, please do so ...

    Thanks a lot

    Yes. You have to send them the latest copy of the data file and they must have iWeb.

    That file can be found here: Users/username/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain

    1. Answered above. :)

    2. You can set a user name and password in the Site Publishing Settings, which are above your website pages on the left. You can then only open the site with those details.

    3. Write the name of the file or use an image, then in the link inspector, select the hyperlink tab and check the box. Now you can select in the drop down menu 'A File' and select whatever pdf should be downloaded.

    4. You can make a main page with the list, then create copies of the main page and add the sub categories on each page and link to the appropriate "sub-category" from the main menu and back.

    Alternatively, you can make a drop-down menu using an HTML snippet where visitors can select the sub-categories from, similar to apple.com if there are more than one languages available for your country's main site.

    Here's the code:

    Code:
    <html>
    <title></title>
    <head>
    <script>
    <!--
    function land(ref, target)
    {
    lowtarget=target.toLowerCase();
    if (lowtarget=="_self") {window.location=loc;}
    else {if (lowtarget=="_top") {top.location=loc;}
    else {if (lowtarget=="_blank") {window.open(loc);}
    else {if (lowtarget=="_parent") {parent.location=loc;}
    else {parent.frames[target].location=loc;};
    }}}
    }
    function jump(menu)
    {
    ref=menu.choice.options[menu.choice.selectedIndex].value;
    splitc=ref.lastIndexOf("*");
    target="";
    if (splitc!=-1)
    {loc=ref.substring(0,splitc);
    target=ref.substring(splitc+1,1000);}
    else {loc=ref; target="_self";};
    if (ref != "") {land(loc,target);}
    }
    //-->
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    
    .combobox {
    background-color: #000000;
    color: #CCCCCC;
    font-size: 8pt;
    font-family: verdana;
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: none;
    }
    
    -->
    </style>
    <form action="dummy" method="post"><select name="choice" size="1" class="combobox" onChange="jump(this.form)"
    <option value="">Title of the menu</option>
    <option value="http://yoururl.com*_top">name of the page</option>
    <option value="http://yoururl.com*_top">name of the page</option>
    <option value="http://yoururl.com*_top">name of the page</option>
    <option value="http://yoururl.com*_top">name of the page</option>
    </select>
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>
