Good work! It looks quite different to most other CityDesk sites, which shows how versatile a tool it can be.

I've added you client's page to the CityDesk FAQ here:
http://www.pool-room.com/CDFAQ/help/index.html#made

And I've added you to the list of CityDesk consultants that I know of:

Everyone else, please feel free to send me URLs if you'd like them added to the FAQ.

While we're at it, I'm using CityDesk, along with a number of other technologies, including PHP, for my new site:

And it says so much in the footer & on the about page as well.

Mark,

That's very nice.  (Aesthetics and design.) 

Since you're using MySQL, PHP, and Blogger, why do you use CityDesk?  (I'm considering moving away from CityDesk, and am interested in the opinion of someone who's doing server-side stuff and still uses CityDesk.)

Also, did you find a way to remove the "Published by Fog Creek Software CityDesk" HTML comment?  I didn't see that in your prosoundreview site.

Thanks.

Thanks. I'm still not crazy about the design, but I'm working on it. I like the design of my personal site much better.. it's much more cohesive.

I'm using CityDesk because it's so much easier to build simple web pages than with PHP. Though I am looking at more complex user-contributed content magement systems. I was thinking of going with PHP Nuke, but it didn't integrate with the other software packges I had on the site and I didn't want users to register twice.

vBulletin has a content management system that I was playing with, but haven't gotten to work yet.

I have no idea how I got rid of the CityDesk stuff at the top of the site. Maybe CD detects the .php extention? Maybe PHP parses it out?

here's the template:
