    Hey everyone, just a quick question that I couldn't find a clear answer to in the in-built help. I'd try this myself, but can't since my .mac trial ran out a while back, and I'd like to find out how this would work before I sign up permanently.

    I want to create a simple page in iWeb to publish to .mac with a bunch of text hyperlinks that allow visitors to just click on it to download a zipped file. I'm a bit confused as to how to do this...

    If I create a hyperlink and go into the Inspector to link it to a file, if I select a file that's stored locally on my hard drive, will this automatically upload it into my iDisk? Or do I need to put the file onto the iDisk using Finder first, then tell the Inspector to find the file in my iDisk?

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Just put the files into your iDisk manually and then link to them there. I'm not sure if iWeb will automatically upload them for you. Remember to put them into a publicly accessible part of your iDisk too. :)

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    In terms of it being a publicly accessible part, does that mean I need to keep the files in the Public folder, or just anywhere that's not password protected?

    The Public folder would probably be fine. I imagine the Web folder would be fine too. Yeah, any folder that's not password protected should be fine. :)

    Cheers. Just wanted to make sure it'd all be as simple as I hoped it would be (but aren't all Apple things?) :)
