update of the post processor application for iWeb, the web creation component of iLife. The “buddy app” is designed to bring additional functionality to iWeb.

Version 1.6.2 removes the obsolete Haloscan options, removes the obsolete Google Analytics Urchin options, and updates Google Analytics to comply with the latest configurations. Also, logs are now emailed to Zarra Studios using Mail rather than our Zarra’s own mail servers.

iWeb Buddy allows the user to add Google Analytics, social bookmarking and more to a web site automatically. In addition, iWeb Buddy allows you to have multiple domain files in iWeb. In addition, iWeb Buddy remembers your settings, account numbers, etc., with the goal of making it easy to update your web site whenever you make a change in iWeb.

With iWeb Buddy, a user can “monetize” their websites that they have created in iWeb by being able to track the traffic on their sites, add custom HTML code for shopping carts and more, according to Marcus Zarra, owner of Zarra Studios. Other features allow you to redirect your RSS feeds to sites like Feedburner, fix the RSS links on your iWeb blog pages, add Haloscan comments to your pages/blog posts, add Custom code to your web pages (without iframes) and add Mint site tracking to your web pages.

iWeb Buddy is available at US$25 for a single user license. A family license is also available for $35. A demonstration copy is fully functional for the first 30 days and can downloaded from Zarra Studios’ web site. Version 1.6.2 is a free update for registered users. iWeb Buddy requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
