How to Create Shorter URLs for your iWeb/MobileMe Sites!

in Mac Software edited January 2014
After much frustration and tinkering with my own site, I finally found a decent workaround to the ugly URLs that iWeb gives you. This will allow you to shorten your URLs a bit, WITHOUT breaking any links or iWeb features such as blog comments.

If you don't care about blog/photo comments or RSS feeds, then it's easy enough to remove the /sitename/ part of your URL entirely. Simply open your /sitename/ folder in iDisk, and paste the contents into the parent directory (the "Sites" folder.) Of course, this won't work when you have multiple websites on iDisk.
