    Who can advise me about the apple app " iWeb" ?
    What's the problem ? I want to update my iMac to OSX Catalina. As is known, the 32-bit applications no longer work after this system update.
    However, I have the iWeb program and I have created an extensive website ( www.alkmaarsecuyperskerk.nl ). After the system update, iWeb no longer works.
    Now I read in a magazine the possibility to install Mojave alongside Catalina via the app "Parallels" instead of "windows" in order to continue using the 32-bit programs.
    I bought and installed the "Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac" program and tried to install the 32-bit programs within the Parallels / OSX Mojave combination. A few apps went well and they also work, but with iWeb I encounter a problem. The app does start and shows the design of the website, but a blank page is displayed for the relevant pages. When I print the relevant page, the content of the page is simply displayed. What is the solution for seeing the contents of the "blank" pages?

    I have exactly the same problem. I also tried it with Parallels desktop with a VM in Mountain Lion, El Capitan and Mojave and it never worked in the Virtual Machine!
    But it works on real hardware like a MacMini late 2009! Also I cannot create a new website with iWeb 3.0.4 (last Update)
    Has somebody any hints how to get this working? After investing a lot of time I have no idea anymore (without that it is a graphics problem with the parallels graphics engine).

    There's another thread about this issue: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250778982
    I tried setting SFRAcceleratedCanvas to false and it showed some little improvements.
    Reinstalling iWeb 3.0.4 didn't help. Printing the page works fine.
    Any ideas / hints from the Parallels support team?

    I have the sample problem. I have iWeb running normally (as well as can be expected) under Mojave. In preparation for upgrading to Catalina I created a Mojave (same version) virtual machine and put iWeb on the virtual machine and copied files as reccomended but got the blank window problem in iWeb.

    @maria: Same problem with El Captain. I think it's a question of how the videodriver works, perhaps iWeb goes it's own way so that Parallels can't deal with it? All items are placed on an website and they are correct stored in the domain-file - but all are invisible
