Is there an iWeb equiv. for PC?

by ShopliftThePooty / November 10, 2006 2:17 AM PST

I work with a small NPO. One of the coordinators uses iWeb to maintain the website, because pretty much anybody can use it. Problem is that he's leaving and will be taking his Mac with so I need to find another prog that is friendly to all of us who are HTML illiterate. Preferably it would be free, but we're willing to pay.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Justin

If there is an equivalent, I haven't found it yet. While the site will be editable in any HTML editor, I've had extreme difficult working with the way iWeb creates HTML files. iWeb likes to take a more graphical approach to web design, using lots of images, layers, and div's, which the PC apps I've used don't deal with very well.

I think there are three options:
1. Scrap what you currently have and start again in a "more traditional" web editor (with similiar wysiwyg capabilites as iWeb) like Dreamweaver, Frontpage, Nvu

2. Buy a Mac and iWeb

3. Become a master at HTML and image editing

Unfortunately none of the three options are close to ideal. I've had to abandon several sites I made using iWeb because I couldn't edit (even the text) with other programs.

Good Luck,

Use a Content Managment System

I know this is a lot too late for you but for the next person the easiest thing to do would be to use a Content Managment System (CMS). It would allow you concentrate on the content on the site instead of the design of the site.

i Web on a PC
by elcondor7771 / October 19, 2009 6:09 AM PDT

It looks as though you are looking for a similar program as the i-web on a mac but on a PC. I am also looking for this if you run across a solution I hope you are gracious enough to share this information with us. We are old Mac users and have had to travel making Macs almost inaccessable but neeed to make beautiful web pages as done with i-web.

Solution (Sort of)

A program called webeasy is sort of like the Apple iWeb. It has been the closest thing I can find.
