    Move the files from the file folder up a level and that will solve that.

    Google will index your page on its own once it finds it, but for new domains it will wait (up to a month or so) before you may see it in search results.

    You have everything inside a folder named "file" as can be seen from the url. Take the contents of that folder and move them outside that folder.

    You seem to be showing two separate sites. Your link shows

    bendigopalmersgym.com.au / file / Home.html

    The link indicates that a folder named file exists, and that your home page is Home.html, but that file is not seen from your screen shot either.

    You need to take a look at the files and folders on your web server instead of looking locally because there's obviously differences.

    ^^ I agree.

    OP - for a guess, because I've seen this issue with iWeb before, if you've previously exported this site from iWeb then the extra parent directory called "file" has crept in then, even tho' it's not there in your current screen shot. And, once uploaded, as angelwatt says, it's still there on your web server.

    ok i found it but i moved everything out of the file named "file" but it didn't open right. and when i went to publish the site again iweb just saved it back in a file named 'file'

    Is there away to stop it from saving it in to a file called 'file'

    That's just the way iWeb works. You have to modify the index.html every time you publish it or just live with it. It's just another reason I don't like iWeb.

    Another side question

    Hey everyone, I used iweb for the first time today and I'm struggling a little. I have been able to figure out most of the kinks but one thing still boggles my mind. How can I set up the site or any other file so that when someone types in our domain name as "yourdomain.com" it will reroute to "www.yourdomain.com"? Any help would be appreciated.

    The thread you're posting in already answers this. iWeb won't let you accomplish this.

    same iweb folder question?

    Hi,
    I just created my own website with iweb, allynfamilyfun.com, and it appears I have a duplicate folder because it shows up as www.allynfamilyfun.com/allynfamilyfun/welcome.html. How do I get rid of that extra folder or is it just the way iWeb works? Thanks so much...
