    Using iWeb, I set up several websites with photos, music..... I reformatted my Mac after realizing I could have saved the website to a disc by saving the file Domain.sites2. I still have copies of the iWeb check out my website! invitations which gives me the pages I constructed with iWeb. Can I use Fetch, I currently have the trial version, to rebuild that website? Or can I set up the old website using Fetch utilizing apace in my .Mac account? The comments I've see about Fetch are very positive but I'm not at all familiar with web-building terminology.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry, but I am not sure I understand your question and what you are hoping to do.

    Is the problem that while your websites are still up on the web, you no longer have the iWeb files that created them, and you are hoping to re-create the sites in iWeb?

    Or is it something else?

    I apologize for not being able to answer right away, but if you could clarify the problem for me, I will do my best to give suggestions.

    Thanks,

    I no longer have the files that created them. I do have the invitations with the links to the sites. I'd like to recreate the sites from the links using Fetch. There's nobody know that is mac knowledgeble.

    Hi,

    I do not think Fetch can help you with this problem, sorry.

    Fetch is not a website design or creation program. All it can do is help move files created in a web design program on a Macintosh to a server, or move files from a server back to your Macintosh. It does not understand how to create websites at all.

    You could use Fetch to download the files that make up the websites back to your Macintosh. But unfortunately, iWeb will not understand those files - the only files iWeb understands are the ones it makes, it cannot import other websites (even if they were originally created in iWeb).

    I am afraid you may need to re-create the websites manually.

    It is possible that there is some other solution that we are not familiar with. You may want to visit Apple's iWeb Support Forum here:

    and see if anyone has any advice for you.

    Thanks,
