Reduce the size of exported iWeb sites
Authored by: DaveA on Nov 28, '06 07:06:01AM

When you dig a little deeper you'll find (if you haven't already) that the whole schmeer is stored in one file at ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain.sites. Even if you remove the files from the exported web site, and remove them also with iWeb, they sometimes will appear again when you export your web site. AFAIK, there's no way to "get into" that file and remove things you don't want. It's a bug in iWeb.

I've also found that for linked files ending with a numeric, iWeb may increment the last numeral each time the file is updated or the web site is exported. So don't name your file "Dad's birthday 2006-12-01" but rather "2006-12-01 Dad's birthday" or similar.

Reduce the size of exported iWeb sites

Domain.sites is actually a package, like applications, Keynote presentations, etc. You can Ctrl-click it and choose "Show Package Contents" to get at the files inside, including the JPEG images.

Note, though, that iWeb probably keeps the files in a package for a reason: it no doubt expects things to remain the way it left them, and it might get confused if that's not the case. You'd probably want to make a copy of the Domain.sites package before doing anything to it.

Ah, so. Thanks, didn't know that. Combining your hint with http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20061120124544797 (View hidden files in Firefox and Camino) makes it easier to investigate.
