My First CityDesk Site is Up

After spending several hours today, I've finally migrated one of my personal sites to CityDesk!

All in all, I think its going to be a decent tool for keeping the site up-to-date easily.

It was quite a change for me, though, since I am so indoctrinated in coding ASP and ASP.Net. I use a lot of server-side code and database interaction in most of the sites I produce. They can be a real pain to use for simple blog-type sites, though.

So I give CityDesk a definite thumbs-up! I look forward to learning the scripting language a lot better though.

One of the things that I did in my new site, which I gleaned from Darrin Collins' site ( http://www.pool-room.com/CodeCraft/CityDesk/index.html ), was to use a "fragments" folder to store larger code snippets, so that I can edit them using the HTML editor. I keep things in there like my header, footer, lef nav, etc. That helped ALOT.

Thanks for your help, everyone who's posted on this discussing forum! And thanks, Joel, for making this product available in a free version!!

It's gorgeous, Chuck! I dig. I'm not even Christian but it's beautiful.

Thanks, Israel!

I checked out your site while making mine, and you've done a very nice job, too!

Shalom!

Uh oh! Are you sure? It isn't live yet! Still working on it!
What site did you check out that you thought was mine?

I'm doing quite well, thank you!

(I had to  look that up in the dictionary! I don't speak Hebrew but I'd love to learn sometime).

My mistake! I got you mixed up with Bob, whose site I looked at:

Ha ha ha, that's amusing.
BTW, you reply, "tov, toda, ve at?"
ie "good, thanks, and you?"

Very nice.
