Hi there. We are a large organization with a website
consisting of over 40,000 pages. We have multiple users who need
access to various parts of the website. We have discovered
different methods of setting them up in Contribute but wonder if
one method is better than the others.
1. Create a separate new connection for each portion of the
site. This, unfortunately, makes it impossible to share CSS layout
files, images, and library items at the root of the website.
2. Create a single connection to the server and create
mutliple roles - most likely named by the user's name - that limits
directory access. Worried this might create an unwieldly list of
users. This opens up shared assets, though, which will help with
maintaining site standards.
We also tried creating a single connection to the server and
creating new roles - named according to which directory was being
given access to - but quickly discovered that a user can only be
assigned to one role.
