    I built that site using iWeb but no longer have access to a Mac. I have dreamweaver though and was wondering if it is a good substitute. I'm willing to build the site from the ground up if I need to, I just want a blog and a site that I have full control over under my domain name.

    Oh and if the site is slow, it's because I'm hosting it from home.

    i've never used iWeb, but i think i can safely say that dreamweaver >>>>> iWeb.

    I've used dreamweaver to make pages since about 2000.. but if you have a blogsite, why don't you just use wordpress?

    im thinking on a scale of 1-10 on complexity and abilities, iweb is about a 2 and dreamweaver about an 8.
    You are better off just getting a wordpress blog set up and going from there.

    He's already using the Drupal theme. He might as well just use Drupal. :mamoru:
