What I’d like to know is where is the long post I did earlier today which should have helped.
OK, I’ll try again.
Firstly, I am assuming that you are using Apple’s DNS service to hitch the www.signaturemotorcars.com domain name to your .Mac account - specifically your iWeb site.
iWeb publishes to a different folder on your iDisk to that accessible by Freeway. Sadly, you need to use an app which can access the correct folder. Do not use Finder. It can do this, BUT the transfer speeds are so slow, you’ll be waiting a long, long time.
Save yourself some stress and get a copy of Transmit from www.panic.com
1 - Start Transmit
2 - Click on the iDisk icon in the side bar
3 - Double Click the My iDisk icon in the main pane - this will open your iDisk in Transmit
4 - There will be a whole load of files & folders. Find a folder named Web and double click on that
5 - You will get another list of files and folders (probably quite short). Locate the folder named Sites and double click on that
6 >> This is your iWeb originated site. You can remove the files from here (select them all and click the wastebasket icon in the Transmit window).
7 - Locate your Site Folder in Finder and drag the files in that folder to the Transmit Window. Transmit will start uploading the files to your iDisk folder.
Now, next time you need to do this, you need only to use the Synchronise feature in Transmit which, like Freeway, will only upload those files you need. You can use Automator to create an app to do this for you. I use this method to maintain a site I own.
Be careful not to confuse the two Sites folders in your iDisk - the one you want is in the Web folder, not the one at the root of the iDisk.
As I said, Freeway can’t do this at the moment - it won’t access the Web folder either by FTP or through Finder. If you are running Mac OS X 10.4 or below, this folder will appear to be a regular folder if you are keeping a synchronised local copy of the iDisk. However, drag a file in there and it will not be synced. On Leopard (10.5), the Web folder appears as an alias in Finder, and yes, clicking on it will open it to show the Sites folder you should use. However, uploading using Finder is painfully slow and I would recommend avoiding it.
Hopefully this will help.
