log out from editing - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I created a website for a client and gave him access to three pages for his own editing. I have it set up so he can edit it with Contribute. One of the pages, however, will not allow him access. He gets an error message saying I am editing the page. How can I sign off so I'm not editing? How do I know if I am signed off? As far as I can tell, I am. Is there a setting in Dreamweaver? Contribute? Thanks...

    Default log out from editing

    I created a website for a client and gave him access to three pages for his own
    editing. I have it set up so he can edit it with Contribute. One of the pages,
    however, will not allow him access. He gets an error message saying I am
    editing the page.

    How can I sign off so I'm not editing? How do I know if I am signed off? As
    far as I can tell, I am. Is there a setting in Dreamweaver? Contribute?

    Thanks

    Look for a file with the same name as the web page but with a .LCK extension on
    the web site where you publish. Contribute creates these to track who is
    editing a page. If the file exists, then delete it. Occasionally Contribute
    creates these files erroneously.

    The .LCK file may be on the users local system. I doubt that, since Contribute
    is saying you are editing it, and not that he is editing it on another
    computer. Deleting that .LCK file will correct the problem.

    On Windows XP, the local copies are in Doents and Settings/{user}/Local
    Settings/Application Data/Adobe/Contribute CS3/Sites/

    That path may vary depending on the version of Windows or Contribute.

    Thanks Elaine for replying. Yes, there is a LCK file. In fact, since setting up
    this Contribute account I'm getting a gazillion LCK files, even on unrelated
    sites. I can't figure out how to delete them because it doesn't allow me to
    select the file. I haven't found any instruction on it either.

    Any advice on that? How do you delete .LCK files?
