Access to Home Page - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I'm trying to allow a user to edit the home page (located in the root under index.asp) but restrict them from certain folders. Is this possible? Can you select specific files instead of an entire folder? So far it looks like they have access to the entire site if they have access to the index.asp home page. Any help would be appreciated....

    This is TOTALLY possible in Contribute 3. You need to set up users and roles.
    Log into contribute if you are the admin (which i am assuming you are) and go
    to Edit --> administer Websites --> your website name. This is where we made
    all the user roles and such. hope this helps :)

    Not quite that easy. They page they want to give access to is at the root
    folder, but if you set up a role with access to that folder, users in that role
    will have the ability to edit files in any folder under that (in other words,
    the whole site), which isn't what the OP wanted.

    However, here is an idea which should work: Create a new folder, and move the
    index page you want them to be able to edit into the new folder. You will
    create a role that has access only to this folder. Now create a shortcut from
    the original index.asp location to the new location, or set up the web server
    to automatically redirect requests for index.asp to newfolder/index.asp. You
    will either need to make sure all the links in that index.asp file are
    absolute, or add a base href to the file if you're using relative links.
