(can't post to the old thread anymore for some reason, I guess there's some cap on consecutive posts)
Also, CityDesk doesn't delete old *folders* from the site that are no longer valid, just old *files*.
It's a bit tricky but if you have a folder named index we don't let articles have the basename index, because we can't be sure you won't add a template family in the future with no extension which would cause a name conflict. So in general, right now, where articles are concerned, we err on the side of safety and don't let you reuse the same basename. But generating unique publishAs names is sort of a big logical morass :) If you're ever trying to debug something like this, pop open your site in Access and look at the sPublishAs field in the tblStructure table.
If only I had Access 2002. I have Access97 or some such, and don't want to hit up my manager for this.
