Can BC host an iWeb site

A friend of mine is currently using iWeb for her site and I was wondering if I could take her files and upload them to BC and host it for her there?

 

Thanks so much!

 

Annette

    Hey Annette.

    IWeb is just hosting so it depends. If the site is Wordpress you can not just install that on BC. Content, styles, template files can be ported over but things need to be modified to strip out things like the PHP and where you need functionality start implementing modules, tags etc that BC uses.

    No, wont work like that.
    You need to just access her site via FTP and grab the files that are used to make the site work. CSS, images, HTML, Javascript.

    If there is any php this needs to be changed/removed.

    Rather then just having pages on the BC site you will want to look at making proper templates etc.

     

    Publish to another site in iWeb wont send it to BC, no. Your correct on that.
