Well, here's my first attempt.

Took me a couple of hours converting the content from a previous site developed using RapidWeaver.

Dai,

Nice site . I like the boxes with gradient fills you've used - are they just shapes placed in the appropriate pace on the page?

Thanks.

Yep, they're just shapes with a gradient fill. They work the same was as they do in Keynote. You can place them anywhere on the page and arrange them so they are at the back of the text or images. Adding shadows to the images makes them stand out against the gradient.

I'm still playing with iWeb. It's fairly basic but definitely got potential. With the exception of the photo pages, most of the pages were based on the Welcome page - I just deleted the suggested items and added my own.

I totally love iWeb! I used frontpage for a long long time and had no end of problems with it. iWeb is fantastic!

What I'd like added for iWeb '07:- automatic function for adding comments/ visitor book, dynamically updating iTunes playlists from the media browser (I have my top 25 most played playlist and that obviously changes.

Also: option in iPhoto: 'optimize for web viewing'

The only problem I see with all of these apps is that they don't get anybody to web optimize their images...

I was quite suprised at both RapidWeaver and iWeb for that. Perhaps I am missing feature somewhere...

But everytime someone goes.. 'Hey look at my web site'.. I get peeved at how long the images take to load..

Hehe... I was going to do that... But got lazy. Just drag and drop existing pictures! I did optimize pics with my old site when I had dial up, but I don't notice load time so much with Broadband. This site is sure eating up server space due to my laziness though!

Does anyone know if there is a way to get rid of the reflections underneath images in a slide show? I don't really like them, and they slow down load times, so I want to get rid of them.

Thanks .

When I look at the slideshows on my web site, I get a new window with a black background, and an auto-running slideshow where the images have part of them reflected below it. You also have controls you can bring up to play / pause / fwd / back, and a strip along the top where you can select specific pics to display. However, if you look at the albums linked in the other sites in this thread, they have slideshows that look more like the old .Mac Homepage ones, with metallic surround and manual forward / back controls. The refection under the images in my slideshows is what I'm trying to get rid of .

I guess they're trying to make their slideshows more like iPhoto

I just dragged my '25 most played' playlist from the media browser into a text box. I didn't do anything else to it. I would have liked the artist name to be included automatically though.

Someone fixed the thread title, too. I may be more likely to post in this thread now that I know what it's asking for. I didn't know what a "yoor iwebs" was. Now I see it's asking for "your sites that were made using iWeb". Make much more sense now.

If it's not red and showing substantial musculature, you're wearing it wrong.

www.dbt-u.com

It was quickly created in iWeb then uploaded to the server.

I'm not 100% happy with iWeb because it's kind of hard to make small updates to the site if it's not on .mac. But for a quick and dirty tool, it's nice. I could see this working very well for people who have no experience with web site creation. For me, it was just a trial run.

Do all pages made on a mac have to be limited to that standard width?

Most of the linked pages i've followed so far have been all the same width. Is there any ability to have the page scale and stretch to fill the browser.?

You can adjust the width of the page. What you're seeing is the default.

Yes. In Preferences, you can specify to have the resulting site saved to disk. Then, you can manually upload it somewhere.

I recommend Cyberduck. Unless anyone knows of anything better?
