Building a site with iWeb

Hi Gary,

I am thinking of developing a site (part-time) for a former employer and was wanting to use iWeb.

Do you have any history with using it and what is your opinion of it? What do you use for

    I do not like iWeb. I think it is a throw-back to the way web pages were made in the 1990s, using client-side software to design pages and then upload them to a site. Worse, it only really works well with MobileMe, not any other web host. Notice that I never do videos on how to use iWeb.
    I would not recommend using iWeb for anything except a small personal site on MobileMe.
    For MacMost I use a much more modern form of web site development — the content management system. In this case, WordPress. There are also lots of others, like Moveable Type, Drupal, Joomla, etc.

    This confirms what I thought. I just re-created an old website using iWeb. It definitely has limits, but I spent a LOT of time working on the new site.
    I looked at WordPress on the web and was wondering how much work I’m looking at to rebuild my website again. Is there a way of converting iWeb pages to WordPress pages?
