Our first CityDesk Template with Article-Based-Configuration (ABC) is now online:

More to follow.

We call them Wizards and provide full documentation. The documentation (PDF) can be viewed online here:

Enjoy and be (even more) productive.

Hi,

the example is nice. I especially like the way the site is configured. That's ingenious. Plus, you found a nice name for the method ;-).

Patrick;
VERY cool. I look forward to seeing what else you're going to cook up.
You guys are starting to turn into a real asset for Fog Creek. Kick ass!

Thanks all for your feedback. One thing we would like to know about is your preferences for future Wizards: For which types of applications / web sites / market segments would you like to see Wizards made. Which features would be top of the list...etc. Any suggestions welcome.

Regards

Nice going Patrick. My first impression is that I wanted a  layman's explanation short of reading the documentation.  A few key points: The site will look like this; you pick your own colors, logo, and titles and you are ready to go ...

I found myself wondering about the Wizzard: Is it a separate program that set's a CityDesk site? (no) Is is a plug-in to CityDesk? (no).  I didn't really want to read the doc to find out.

This is the beginning of some good stuff both for users and for CityDesk developers who'll learn some clever ideas from your work. Thanks a lot.

I thought the pdf doc was just the right size for a novice user to print out and refer to. Just wanted to chime in on that.

I found the explanations to be very clear & well written as well. Whoever you have writing those, keep them!

Oh, a minor quibble: Espoo sounds kind of gross, you might want to change the name. Yuck!

The next wizard would be named "Forssa". Question: Where do the names come from ?

Maybe the 3rd will be named Vantaa? :-)
