updating my iweb site through fetch to godaddy (2 posts)

    I have a blog as apart of my site, so there are quite a few pages. Is there a way to upload just the changes I made to the FTP site rather than having to upload the ENTIRE page every time?

    It takes a long time to upload the whole page and I don't want to have to do that if I am updating my site throughout the day.

    Please help

    Unfortunately, the way iWeb works, every time you update your website and publish it to a folder, it updates *every* page in your site. So every page is "new" whether it really needed to be or not.

    And often if you try to only upload part of your iWeb-created website, your links may break.

    Sorry, I wish we had a better answer for you, but this is a limitation of iWeb.

    Normally we would recommend the Fetch Mirror command, which saves time by uploading only new or changed files, but because of the way iWeb works by making each file "new," the Mirror command will upload all pages of an iWeb-created website.
