Suggestion: Provide a simple example site

Over the past few days I've spent some time coming up to speed on CityDesk and I have to say I'm very impressed.  It has just the right mix of features to make it a killer v1 product.  Congratulations.

One suggestion that I would make is to include a simple site as an example that newbies can learn from.  I was able to get most of what I needed  from the help files and this and several of the other sites that have popped up but it would have been a lot easier if I had had an example site to look at while learning.

I would also have been nice to have half a dozen simple templates to choose from both for variety and to learn how to build the different type of templates.

These are nits, of course.  The product does quite a bit really well.

Perhaps one of you generous developers could a lot of the cool scripts, ideas, etc. that you are pasting on your pages from this forum, incorporate them into a CityDesk site and post is somewhere?

There is some stuff here:

If you see a site you like, you can probably get the publisher to send you the .cty file.

It's part of the article "ProductMuse Moves to CityDesk".

I'm also preparing two reviews of CityDesk that I'll post soon. One is a pure product review, the other is a SWOT analysis of the CityDesk strategy.
