How do I install Fotomoto on iWeb?

Last Updated: Nov 06, 2012 11:18AM PST


We've decided to drop support for integrating Fotomoto with iWeb sites. Unfortunately, iWeb outputs HTML for images in a way that prevents Fotomoto from working as it was designed to, and though we were able to add Buy Buttons to an iWeb page, the end result made for what we consider to be an unacceptable end-user experience.

If you would like to try using Fotomoto with iWeb, the installation instructions are below, but note that we do not provide support and recommend that you instead use one of the applications or services listed on our How page.

We apologize for the inconvenience...we tried to make Fotomoto work nicely with iWeb, but it just wasn't working out.

Before You Start

These instructions are for the iLife '11 version of iWeb only.

It's also important to note that because of the way iWeb generates HTML, Fotomoto will work a little differently than normal - the Buy Buttons will appear in a single bar at the top of the page, not under each image as usually.

Change your Settings

On the Settings page of the Fotomoto Dashboard, change your Publishing platform to iWeb, then click the Save button.

Copy your Fotomoto Script

Click the Fotomoto Script link, and copy the script from the pop-up window.

Add an HTML Snippet

In iWeb, add a new HTML Snipped to your document.


Paste Script into Widget

Now just paste your Fotomoto Script in to the widget and publish the changes.



You should now see a single row of the Fotomoto Buy Buttons on your photo pages created with iWeb.

Note that when using Fotomoto with iWeb, your customers will need to click one of the Buy links and select which photo they're trying to purchase, where normally there would be a set of Buy Buttons under each picture.

Now that you've installed Fotomoto on your site, you might want to read our article "I've installed Fotomoto - now what?".
