Still logged into Contribute? - Macromedia Contribute Connection Administrtion

I've just completed a site redesign for a client who uses Contribute 3 to edit his site. Apparently all works well, except for one page where apparently I'm still logged in from a test session months ago when I was using a now-expired trial copy to check out the site. I'm honestly not sure why I'm still logged in, but apparently that is the case after two months. Is there a way the client, as the Contribute admin, can force me "off" that page? I don't really have the need to buy a copy. I suppose in the worst-case scenario ...

    Default Still logged into Contribute?

    I've just completed a site redesign for a client who uses Contribute 3 to edit
    his site. Apparently all works well, except for one page where apparently I'm
    still logged in from a test session months ago when I was using a now-expired
    trial copy to check out the site. I'm honestly not sure why I'm still logged
    in, but apparently that is the case after two months. Is there a way the
    client, as the Contribute admin, can force me "off" that page? I don't really
    have the need to buy a copy. I suppose in the worst-case scenario I can get on
    his computer and log in and off myself, but I won't be able to do this for a
    while.

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem to a slightly different degree. I have a co-worker who
    needed to reinstall Contribute and in the process, made herself the
    administrator. Subsequently I needed to reinstall Contribute when my PC was
    upgraded and discovered several (but not all) pages were locked by my
    co-worker. I would be very interested in a fix as well.

    If you have access to the site via ftp you can find the file named with the
    page name.lck. Delete that file and the user will no longer be locked out. This
    happens when someone just closes out of the page without publishing, canceling
    or saving the changes, esp if, as in your case, you no longer have access to
    the method where the changes were made.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks! I think that will do the trick. Said client is somewhat computer illiterate AND he's the Contribute admin... a bad combination.
