Well when I your I don’t mean all of you but a few of you. I have been catching up on some of my e-mails and decided to pick some of the more popular questions that you have asked and put them all in a post. I used to do this a while ago but haven’t done it for a while now, although it is a great way of answering so many e-mails in one swoop.

How to add a fixed floating menu to your iWeb

16 Comments Tutorials

Almost a year ago I wrote a post pointing you all in the direction of an iWeb site explaining how iWeb users with long pages can add Anchors to those long pages so that visitors to the site didn’t have to keep scrolling up and down to get to see the navigation.

How to detect an iPhone visitor to your iWeb site

10 Comments Tutorials, Web Design

Book Review – Teach Yourself Visually iLife 09

1 Comment Tips and Tricks

Okay so I had some book vouchers for Christmas and couldn’t really decide what I should buy with them, especially as I got the books I wanted for Christmas too. Then a few days ago I accidentally hit the GarageBand icon instead of the iWeb icon on my Dock and when it popped up I was tempted to stay and play for a while. Only I just made rubbish. ‘Ding’ a light-bulb appeared above my head and the very next day off I popped to the shops to get me a iLife book to learn some more of GarageBand and help me brush up my iWeb skills too.
