"Take Control of iWeb '09" Helps Make Better Web Sites

Send Article to a Friend

We've just released "Take Control of iWeb '09." Written by iWeb expert Steve Sande, the 152-page ebook covers all the new features in iWeb '09 (plus those that remain from previous iWeb versions, of course) to provide comprehensive documentation of how to work creatively and effectively in iWeb. "Take Control of iWeb '09" costs $10, and you can get it hot off our virtual press.

Generally speaking, "Take Control of iWeb '09" walks you through all the steps for building an iWeb site and uploading it to MobileMe or another Web host. You can look over author Steve Sande's shoulder as he enhances iWeb's templates with a designer's eye, using tools like masks, reflections, and Instant Alpha. You'll also learn the ins and outs of uploading, with special coverage of using a custom domain name and uploading to third-party hosts.

New iWeb '09 features discussed include still more widgets that can add special content to your site (for instance, a Twitter feed) and the new FTP capabilities that vastly simplify uploading to a third-party Web host. Like the recently released Take Control ebooks about GarageBand '09 (see "Savvy GarageBand '09 Documentation Now Available," 2009-04-23), this title is unusual in that it offers book-length coverage of a single iLife application.

Those who own an earlier edition of "Take Control of iWeb" may have received an email message about getting a free (for those who purchased after January 1st, 2009) or discounted update; otherwise, open your PDF and click Check for Updates on the cover to get update details.
