modifiable content . The problem is that Contribute allows me to edit any part of the page including the table cell widths and heights. Even more alarming is that I can use Contribute to edit any web page on the site even though there are no Dreamweaver or Contribute tags to allow that to happen. How do I restrict Contribute to edit only the areas where I want to allow editing? Am I using the wrong Dreamweaver tags? How can Contribute modify pages where it has no tags allowing it to do so?

Can't restrict Contribute from modifying anything andeverything - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I am hand coding a website for a client. I don't use Dreamweaver. The client wants to be able to modify text content on the home page and a few other pages. Contribute seems like the perfect choice. The content on the home page that the client wants to modify is contained in the cell of a table. Based on what I understood from a previous job, I thought I could make this happen by encasing the modifiable text with the following tags: <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="title" --> modifiable content <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->.

    Default Can't restrict Contribute from modifying anything andeverything

    I am hand coding a website for a client. I don't use Dreamweaver. The client
    wants to be able to modify text content on the home page and a few other pages.
    Contribute seems like the perfect choice. The content on the home page that the
    client wants to modify is contained in the cell of a table. Based on what I
    understood from a previous job, I thought I could make this happen by encasing
    the modifiable text with the following tags: <!-- InstanceBeginEditable
    name="title" --> modifiable content <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->. The problem
    is that Contribute allows me to edit any part of the page including the table
    cell widths and heights.

    Even more alarming is that I can use Contribute to edit any web page on the
    site even though there are no Dreamweaver or Contribute tags to allow that to
    happen. How do I restrict Contribute to edit only the areas where I want to
    allow editing? Am I using the wrong Dreamweaver tags? How can Contribute modify
    pages where it has no tags allowing it to do so?

    Thanks to anyone who can shed light on this.

    Hi,

    Any editable regions inserted using dreamweaver would be editable in
    contribute. Other regions are non-editable.

    it would be of this form
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="EditRegion1" -->EditRegion1<!--
    TemplateEndEditable -->

    Thank

    Maybe this will help you.

    The basic template code in Dreamweaver 8 looks like this:
    ---
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; cht=utf-8" />
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
    <title>Untitled Doent</title>
    <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->
    <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    </head>

    <body>
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="EditRegion3" -->EditRegion3<!--
    TemplateEndEditable -->
    </body>
    </html>
    ---

    When you create a page from a template in Dreamweaver 8 it looks like this:
    ---
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><!-- InstanceBegin
    template="/Templates/template2.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->

    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; cht=utf-8" />
    <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
    <title>Untitled Doent</title>
    <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
    <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="head" -->
    <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
    </head>

    <body>
    <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="EditRegion3" -->EditRegion3<!--
    InstanceEndEditable -->
    </body>
    <!-- InstanceEnd --></html>

    Thanks ThinkInk.

    Your second html file with the tag <!-- InstanceBegin
    template="/Templates/template2.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --> makes
    my page work. I can even leave out the attribute
    'template="/Templates/template2.dwt"' and it still works fine.

    Much appreciated!

    For a finer degree of control, I recommend the following:

    1. Link every page to two style sheets - one that contains only the styles you
    want the user to have access to, and one that contains everything else. Limit
    the user to stylesheet #1. Turn off all other coding options - font selection,
    background colors, etc.

    2. Put your editable areas inside your markup. For example, don't just create
    a big editable area in the center of the page. Instead create the page title,
    let's say H1, and put the editable region inside of the tag:
    <h1><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="pagetitle" -->This is the Title<!--
    InstanceEndEditable --></h1>

    Do the same for the body copy, footer, etc. Dreamweaver doesn't especially
    like this and will usually pop up some sort of warning, that you can just
    ignore. This is the only way I have found to give users write access but force
    them to use the site's pre-defined formatting.

    I tried the above but it is not working. Even though i added the InstanceBeginEditable, the page is allowing me to edit completely.
