    i use MobileMe/iWeb sites to sell fans (thru Paypal) access to my live concert recordings, streaming or as downloads thru iDisc password access. 40 minute songs are the norm. Any comparison of available music web sites like CDBaby’s HostBaby would be welcome!

      If you are using Paypal links to have people pay for things, then you can continue to use those same links with any new host you choose.

    I travel to places where I do not always have internet access. iWeb allows me to write my blog, then publish it when I do have access. Blogger does not give me that freedom. Suggestions for a replacement for iWeb and MobileMe?

      Well, you can always just write it on your local machine and then upload later. That’s what iWeb is doing, really, anyway.

    Hi Gary, Thanks for this video as well as the ones on Google Blog & Site as alternatives. You mention that MacMost is a WordPress site. If you were starting from scratch today — and know what you know — which would you use (WordPress or Google Blog)? Why? Thanks, Steve

      WordPress is a much more powerful solution, so it would be WordPress. Blogger is a great solution for getting a quick start and maintaining a basic blog. But I need WordPress.

    Can you backup WordPress with iCloud? If so, how?

      7 years ago

      No. iCloud is for personal things: email, calendar, contacts, document. It doesn’t interact with server applications like WordPress.

    I’ve just replaced my iWeb work web pages (all three of ’em) with WordPress, having never looked at it before (and having no html background).

    I found it fairly intuitive (with a couple of exceptions). I lost italicisation from the iWeb text that I just cut & pasted but all the links, etc were retained.

    Thanks for the advice!
