I just discovered iWeb gives you a very odd URL. Like this:

http://www.ballinger.net/Ballinger.net/ ... r.net.html

MacHighway tells me Sandvox would have a more straightforward URL like:

http://www.ballinger.net

Is that true?

If so, for me its a good reason for buying Sandvox.

Charles,

I would think that you could get a normal URL out of iWeb. It did take a bit of work to get my website published on MacHighway in the folder that I needed.

I'm attaching a picture of my Sandvox setup that gives me a normal www.ripon89.us URL:

Thanks Bob. I figured it out but its not friendly.

Mac Highway did tell me that yes, its an iWeb oddity.


I can't get your "home/*LOGIN*/public_html" setting to work.

I published the site through iWeb to Mac Highway. iWeb publishes the site into a folder called ballinger.net and places that folder in public-html. I moved all the files and folders out of the folder "ballinger.net" directly into public_html.

THEN!...

I have to delete the existing index.html file and rename a file called ballinger.net.html into the new index.html.

I don't think I can do that each time I make an edit and republish. That defeats the entire purpose of a nice Mac-like ftp client and HTML tool.

I'll keep trying to play with the iWeb settings, but will buy Sandvox if I can't get iWeb to do this. I'll post the resolution.

Charles,

That's too bad. Honestly, I haven't played with iWeb much since the first version was too limiting. Now that I use Sandvox, it's not worth moving back to iWeb.

After several iterations in iWeb I tried the trial of Sandvox.

Oooh that's easy..

Sandvox it is.

Thanks Bob.

I'm glad you like the demo. I picked up Sandvox when it first came out. I only have the Sandvox Pro version because Karelia gave beta users a price we couldn't refuse.

Unless you see the need to use HTML snippets or insert Google Analytics code into your website, you might want to stay with the regular edition.

Both my own website (http://www.ripon89.us) and the website for the Windows user group that I belong to (http://www.ripon89.us/necc) were created and are updated using Sandvox.
