The Church I go to in Kemnay has recently published its Web site. I was asked to provide some information about the praise band (Ruach Praise) and its members so we had some photos taken and encouraged the band members to provide some text about themselves to complement the photos. It is interesting to observe how modest the band members are this is evident when you see that even after a few weeks I still not have a text contribution from each member! I decided to use iWeb to collect the information gathered and then to offer this web address to the church Webmaster. Having did this in a very rough and ready manner I passed the URL over and suggested that the site assets could be copied in to that appropriate format for the Church Web site. To my surprise, my site was simple linked to! This might be temporary measure – we’ll see!
Having now used iWeb – a free application from Apple I have been very impressed just how easy it has been to publish simple web sites. The product is fairly limited using a page template based method. The band web site actually started as a photo album in iPhoto. One click takes the data from iPhoto into iWeb ready for publishing through an easy to use template. The text can be added in iWeb. All of this takes only a few minutes to accomplish with no need at any stage to resort to html coding. You can view the church web site, click here, or go direct to the site I created, click here.
