Breadcrumbs and Other Problems

By Simon Moore; March 01, 2003

Unfortunately, the section breadcrumbs[?] and section taglines are broken at the moment. Sorry.

This is due to a number of limitations in the CityScript feature of CityDesk: I simply cannot use it to automatically generate the breadcrumbs and section taglines that I had planned to use. This is one of the most requested features for CityDesk, so hopefully it will be resolved in the next software release. There are ways around it, but they require the use of JavaScript and I'm trying my hardest to avoid anything other than XHTML and CSS on this web site.

Made with CityDesk

By Simon Moore; March 01, 2003

This site is put together using the CityDesk content management system. It is a nice and simple package for putting together a weblog, and comes with a built-in scripting language that allows you to automate many of the activities involved in publishing a site such as this.

One big benefit of CityDesk is that there is a Starter Edition available for free download. This can only support a limited number of files for a site, but has allowed my to put this site together without spending a fortune on software that might not prove to be the right choice for me.

So far I'm impressed with CityDesk: it is simple to put together a simple site, and yet still easy to use for more complicated sites. That's not to say there are not things that need to be improved, but that will be the subject of another article.

The Getting Started With CityDesk article is one of the sample articles that come with CityDesk.
