    I teach in a school system that uses only front page to do web pages. Can I create my page in iWeb and upload it to my school web site using Fetch?

    Sadly, the tech people here have a tendency to be macphobic, so I need to have a way around their objections to using iWeb. If I can do it myself without needing their help it would make life easier. :-)

    Hi,

    As long as webpages on the server do not require any special features of Front Page (and that is not likely), you should be able to create webpages in any web editor, such as iWeb, and upload them with Fetch to the school's server.

    However, you can only create new webpages in iWeb, and then edit those pages - editing webpages created by other programs is not something you can do with iWeb. Likewise, other people would not be able to edit the pages you create with iWeb in Front Page. So if you need to work on pages together with other people, probably you'll have to use Front Page and a Windows machine.

    If your web pages will be stand alone and only modified by you, you should be okay.

    The other downside is that if you have troubles with iWeb or with the pages once you upload them, you may have to figure out problems yourself - although we can provide assistance with Fetch issues, of course.

    I hope this helps with your decision.

    Thanks,

    Thanks! That's exactly what I needed to know. I do plan to do stand alone stuff and don't mind not being able to edit online.

    Hi,

    You're welcome.

    I'd recommend doing a test with a very simple webpage first, just to make sure everything will work properly, before you spend a lot of time creating your real pages in iWeb.

    Best,
