One of the biggest annoyances of iWeb users is the lack of support for Anchors in iWeb. I have seen loads of ‘iWeb Wishlists’ requesting such a feature but it hasn’t been forthcoming. If you don’t know already anchors are (put simply) a way of linking one element of your page with another element further down (or up) the page.

Continuing on from the first part in this series of building your own iWeb site without themes, this time I have chosen the ‘Gaming’ style of web site to have a go at designing. Taking a look around the Internet it is easy to see how different genres have a similar style in their web design and gaming is no different.

One of the reasons we all use iWeb is because it makes building beautiful web-sites simple, and here is a list of some of the more good-looking ones that can be seen on the Internet. Some are designed using iWeb 2.0.4, some with iWeb 3 and 3.0.1 but they all have the same thing in common; the designers haven’t stuck with a standard theme and have instead opted for a bit of individuality.

Okay, so not a post about iWeb this time I know, but this coming Sunday (5 April 2009) I am taking part in the Paris Marathon and would like to raise money for the Royal Air Forces Association. If you would like to sponsor me please visit my JustGiving page and give what you can.
Thanks very much.
