Hi Everyone! My name is Jeremy and I will be taking over iWebUnlimited for Jason. Jason has done such a great job with the site and I am extremely happy to be able to have this opportunity to fill his shoes. I have run other mac software video tutorial site for a few years now, and have done work, and continue to do a lot of work with RAGE Software. I have made hundreds of video tutorials on iWeb for both AppTorial and RAGE Software, including the popular SEO For iWeb Walkthrough Video Tutorial. RAGE Software has been an integral part of the iWeb community for many many years, offering the well known free tool called iWeb SEO Tool. I will be discussing many of RAGE Software’s products and services during my tenure with iWebUnlimited, and hope to show iWeb users how using these products will make their lives a lot easier.

I hope to add a lot more to this ever growing site of amazing iWeb tips and tricks. You might notice some edits at the top of older posts. This is just my way of keeping those posts up to date with the most current methods, and simplistic approaches to accomplishing the goals set out in each tutorial.

I know there is some panic right now about the future of iWeb, and I want everyone to know where I stand on this matter. While Apple might no longer continue to develop iWeb, it is still the best option available in terms of drag and drop or WYSIWYG editors for the Mac. As long as you have iWeb on your computer, there is no need to find an alternate web builder right now. I will do my best to keep everyone up to date on this matter, as things will most definitely change in the future (as they normally do). But for the time being, my recommendation to iWeb users is to not panic, and continue using iWeb as you normally do. Use this site and your other available resources to continue to produce the best possible website you can.

If you are a MobileMe user, please know that your account with MobileMe will be expiring in June of 2012. This means you will need to find a new web host very soon. I encourage everyone to do this sooner rather than later. My personal opinion is that if your site is for a business, you should not be using MobileMe as a web host. In previous posts, Jason has recommend RAGE Web Hosting, which I also highly recommend. RAGE Web Hosting is the only hosting company on the market that provides users with iWeb support. As an iWeb user, that type of support is so rare  and so important. Having experienced other web hosts before, I can safely say that you will not be disappointed using RAGE.

That is all for now. To finish off, once again, I am extremely happy to be here, and I look forward to discussing iWeb related topics with you all!

    Hello Jeremy, Where would I send a question I have about the PHOTOSWAP feature for iweb. I have photographs that are not landscape but portrait oriented. Thanks, Rita

    Hi Rita,

    I think a good place to ask a question about that would be on Apple’s iWeb Discussion board

    Please let me know if you have any update for IWeb. I use Iweb extensively for personal web sites; family, volunteer work, etc…(not for business). I have never used Mobile me and have had my own hosing site for about 6 years. I am retired but I have worked in the computer industry as a software manager, so I am not completely ignorant. So far I have not found anything comparable to the functionality of iWeb. I also use Dreamweaver, but not much, usually to expand on an Iweb page. I would love to see Apple sell the right to iWeb to an individual or business to have them keep the product up to date and even enhance it. I would be more than willing to pay for it.
    Since Lion. I have had some issue with the way I use it. I have way over 100 different sites. Thanks to “old toad”, I have been able to continue using Iweb with Lion on my new iMac (December 2011), but I do not dare upgrading to Mountain Lion. Thanks for any info.

      Hi Isabelle,

      I have heard some rumors from a credible source of a suitable alternative coming soon. As long as you visit this site, you will hear more about it as I receive more information. I’m not too sure if you will be able to import your 100 sites, but we’ll have to wait and see.
