iWeb, the web designing application in Apple’s iLife suite, has been updated to version 3.0.2, adding refined comment and search support for blogs and podcasts published to MobileMe, as well as bug fixes.
“Designing a website may seem difficult, but with iWeb, it’s easily within your reach,” Apple states
on its web site.
“Create your site using themes. Customize it with photos, movies, text, and widgets. Then publish to MobileMe or any other hosting service,” the Mac maker explains.
“iWeb even notifies Facebook when your site changes and adds a link to your profile so your friends stay up to date,” the company adds, referring to a relatively recent addition to the software.
Talking about the iWeb 3.0.2 update on the Support area of its web site, Apple reveals
that “This update refines comment and search support for blogs and podcasts published to MobileMe.”
“It also resolves some issues related to publishing sites to MobileMe,” the company notifies users of its iWeb application.
iWeb uses a customer’s MobileMe account information from System Preferences to publish a site.
Those who’d rather use File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to publish to a different hosting service can do so with the built-in FTP support in iWeb.
Most importantly for those managing multiple web sites, the iWeb site organizer is there to reorganize, rename, or delete individual pages or entire websites.
Users can publish one site at a time — either to MobileMe or to another hosting service via FTP, as iWeb creates navigation menus for each site.
The Facebook integration now enables iWeb to notify your Facebook friends when you update your site, according to recent update to the program’s description.
Users can link to any iWeb site to their Facebook account and, following an update, the application will reflect the changes to that profile, while alerting a user’s friends by sending them a link.Download iWeb update (Free)
