Updating iweb 1 1 2 templates
This facility enables you to take a page that you have already modified from Apple’s stock template and use it as a type of pseudo-template.
Select a template for the first page of your site, modify all the elements the way you want, and then select Duplicate Page from the Edit menu (or use the Apple D key combination).
You then get an exact copy of the page that you can modify as your second page (or third or fourth or fifth, and so on).
This approach can work well if you are working only with a single type of page in i Web.
If this is beyond your comfort level, you might want to consider the following alternatives to building your own themes.
With the i Web 1.1 update, Apple added a much-needed feature to i Web: the capability to duplicate an existing page.
