    "Had me excited then kicked me in the teeth"

    August 23, 2014  |   By alphashooter

    Version: Apple iWeb 3.0.4

    Pros

    Pretty easy to either figure out yourself or find many user videos elsewhere online that explain how to do this or that.

    Cons

    Can't embed video! I can attach videos with ease, but it won't embed videos from another site, at least not in Snow Leopard.

    Summary

    There doesn't seem to be any answers online for problems like I had, and the ones that were even close were dated years ago and were no help at all. Am I really the first to mention this quirk?
    When trying to embed either my Youtube or Vimeo videos I either get a dead black square(even after trying 'publishing') or with the Youtube snippet it kept saying 'code was invalid'. Frustrating and maddening to no end!
    I suppose for anything else tho, this is a great way to make a site and make it look pretty darn good pretty easily. I wanted it for my videos tho, so it is totally useless. Uploading videos from my Desktop works sure, but that exponentially increases the space needed for a website and it's increased cost, so I have a great website builder that is now totally useless to me. Thanks Apple...

    "iWeb is fine, this file doesn't work"

    April 20, 2013  |   By jtowle2001

    Version: Apple iWeb 3.0.4

    Pros

    I ended up getting the update at the Apple support site.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1413

    It will UPDATE an existing version of iWeb 3.xx, not sure if it will install as a new version

    Cons

    The file I downloaded got a complaint from the OS telling me the certificate was out of date (first problem). Then I ignored that error and got the file and the MAC OS then said I didn't have the right version to be updated by this file.

    Summary

    When I grabbed the 3.04 update from the apple site (above) it worked fine, installed, so I'm a happy camper.

    "perfect for newbies"

    November 22, 2012  |   By jhencken

    Version: Apple iWeb 3.0.4

    Pros

    with a little practice you can create a very handsome website; it's also easy to alter and update it.

    Cons

    Apple is phasing this program out. Updates will no longer be offered, and eventually it won't work any more Pity.

    "Great For Easy Sites, But Not For Advanced Webmasters"

    October 30, 2011  |   By unc2000

    Version: Apple iWeb 3.0.4

    Pros

    -Easy to use drag and drop interface
    -Very customizable
    -Import media with the Media Browser in iLife
    -Publish to FTP server or local folder (MobileMe is fading, so that is not good for hosting..)
    -Takes very little time to make with the various themes
    -No knowledge of HTML, Java, or CSS required.
    -Makes embedding/using gadgets very easy

    Cons

    -Does not allow HTML editing; you must get a text editor, and revise after you publish the site
    -Can be fussy about opening a different Domain file than the one it usually uses
    -Sometimes loses items on the page when publishing
    -No drop-down menus

    Summary

    If you don't like to work with code, this is the perfect site builder for you. It's intuitive interface, drag and drop gadgets, easy publishing, and ability to do a lot of customizing is great.

    However, it is not good for a professional design suite (obviously). It does not allow coding, which can get annoying.

    All in all, a GREAT product for people to use to create easy websites.

    The Bottom Line:
    Does exactly what it's supposed to do, but it would be great if it could do a bit more complex things.
