no I'm not copying and pasting. the descriptions were typed direct. The template validates in terms of HTML and CSS. your Power CMS co-exits on the page and that content does not validate. UPDATE: - I have just commented out the power CMS code earlier in the page. All the original descriptions put in yesterday still don't show up in the manage images interface - they start off blank. But the images that had not been edited yet can now be edited and save. When I log in and out again they are still there and work as they should. I'm assuming that the problem is a conflict in the database tables between the 2 products. I have purely put a paragraph of text before the gallery that is editable with the cms - ie there are 2 separate php code elements, 1 for the CMS followed by 1 for the gallery. SO the question now is can this work? If so is there a fix?
