Tag Clouds for iWeb revisited

19 Comments Tutorials, Web Design, Widgets

A little while ago I published a post on how to add a tag cloud to your iWeb blog. Many of you visited the post and followed the tutorial but recently I received a comment on the post that said the link to ZoomClouds wasn’t working.

Anchors in iWeb – About time too

1 Comment Tips and Tricks, Tutorials, Web Design, Widgets

iweb_anchors 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.

Some well-made iWeb sites

36 Comments Blah blah, Web Design

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.
