Transferring iWeb websites to another computer or another account!

This is a great tip submitted by Dominic Tremblay! iWeb has many issues: you cannot have many websites saved in different files where you can choose which one to open and the sites stay in iWeb forever until you delete it. It is also only saved in iWeb on one computer and on one particular account or it is exported as html. To transfer your websites to another account or to another computer, you can copy the file located in Users/accountname/library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain into the same folder on the other account (or computer). The only issue with this is that you cannot choose which one of your websites to copy and if the account to which you are copying it to has websites in iWeb, they'll be destroyed. This is not the best solution but it is one of the only way now since it isn't supported by the software. This is definitely one of the functions that Apple has to add in iWeb 2.0! Thanks for the tip Dominic!

Hi Guys. My first Post. 1st, congrats for the great web and widget. 1st thing I check every morning!.

Also correct me if I am wrong but I found a work around solution for that issue. What I do is I go to:
Users/accountname/library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain

And first thing I do is I duplicate the file Domain and change the name to something else. Let's say, birthday2007. Then I also change the domain file to a name that suits better what the website is about. With this way, you can have many different websites and just copy them (the file) to different computers to work without loosing the original. I think the best way is not to have any file named domain, so what you do to work with them is to go and find in finder the file that you created, let's say birthday2007 (that can be in /accountname/library/Application Support/iWeb/) or wherever you want to and double click it. If you don't have any file named Domain in (/accountname/library/Application Support/iWeb/) i web will ask you, 3 options.

quit / Create domain / choose domain

There you select choose domain and find the birthday2007 file. When you open that file you can work on it just as any independent file.

It works for me. I have like 20 different independent files. So when I want to work on a different website, I just duplicate a simple one, name it whatever, open it, erase the content and start again.

I hope it helps you guys, and sorry for the long entry, I guess it is my Spanish blood that won't let me shut up... :-)

Happy iwebing.

Thanks iozny for finding how to have sites in multiples files. I was looking for a way to have iWeb ask for which file to load from but I hadn't found any. That's a great find!

Also thanks panu for this software. I'll definitely try it out. It looks great and it's a freeware.
