Hints on editing photos without destroying page
I have found that if I make almost any kind of change to an article that contains photos, that page will be "destroyed". The latest example of this just now was that I had a page with 5 photos on it. I deleted one of the photos by "cutting" it. That left the caption. It was unclear how to delete the caption, as it could not be selected at first. After a few attempts, I was finally able to delete the caption. Then everything looked fine. I saved the article, previewed the site, and then foudn that all the pictures had been deleted.
Boy, you aren't kidding. In normal view, you can do a backspace sometimes and all your pictures are gone, particularly if your pictures are all in a row, one after another. If text separates the pictures it's safer. I don't know why it happens.
How about popping a table into the article and filling it with pictures?
Tables work too but you have to do HTML. There have been so many comments about messing with pictures that I expect Fog has it on their enhancement list somewhere.
I've had trouble with photos in CityDesk too. My solution is to not use captions. They add lots of <span> tags that end up getting messed around after multiple edits, especially if you switch between HTML and Normal view like I do.
I try not to use "Normal View" at all. I do all my editing in HTML view, and then I preview using the full-fledged browser. The results are just too unpredictable from using "Normal View".
