Locking Non-Template files - Macromedia Contribute Connection Administrtion

Hi, I'm new to Contribute ....as will be obvious from the following question! I would be very grateful if someone could explain how I can use Dreamweaver 8 to lock any HTM file on my website that is NOT based on a template. Is this possible? Best wishes Simon RCL...

    Default Locking Non-Template files

    Hi,

    I'm new to Contribute ....as will be obvious from the following question!

    I would be very grateful if someone could explain how I can use Dreamweaver 8
    to lock any HTM file on my website that is NOT based on a template. Is this
    possible?

    Best wishes

    What do you mean? You don't want Contribute-users to be able to edit some html-files on the server?

    Yes. I've constructed a website which has been up and running for some time
    using DW8 ...and which hasn't been based on templates. I've now installed
    Contribute 3 to it from a remote PC ...and have successfully made a linked to
    it. Although I can upload text and images OK using Contribute I haven't been
    able to change the Permission settings in DW to prevent changes being made to
    any of the files, - including index.htm!

    I note that the Contribute Administration tools in DW refer to permission
    settings for folders ...but not for individual files.

    I've been searching Tom Negrino's book on Contribute 3 and can't find a
    answer. I'd be very grateful for your help!

    It's not possible to prevent users from editing individual pages. You will have
    to place the files users can edit in a folder and adjust preferences using the
    admin-settings.

    Using Templates you can make users able to edit only 'editable regions'and
    nothing else.
