Not sure where to put this as it is more of a general web developer question. On gallery, once it's setup you can create an album and name it "whatever". At a later date you may login again, and edit that name to "whatever 2012". My question is how simple is that code alone? I have a site that on the main index page, I would like the ability to edit the text within a table. I know you can add the editable text part to the code but that does it front side only. On a page refresh it reverts back. How can I do this and make it stick.

Are you talking about the WYSIWYG text editor like http://www.tinymce.com/ ?
I guess I need a better user story of what you are after.

Talking of the text editor, you may be able to edit it in html instead of the WYSIWYG and keep the change permanent, otherwise try and go to the index page and adjust the editable text there. I was having some sort of trouble with this in the past. The code alone is simple but make sure you have retained all the html tags if editing the content part of the text

WYSIWYG is good for editing without having to get into the nitty gritty of HTML...I've done enough web editing that I'm now fine typing out the code myself, but even then I like WYSIWYG for avoiding typos and errors that otherwise creep in when hand-editing large sections of text.

Anyone here can suggest what other editor that is user friendly and can easily be use for newbies like me?
