    Users unable to edit pages

    adeking
      Hi,

      I have a particular department in my company who cannot edit their pages as it say they are currently being edited by anyother user. In the past when this has occured I have searched the web server for .lck files and deleted them and this resolves the issue.

      However, in this case, there are no .lck files so I have no idea what to do.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks

          Definately there should be a .LCK file. Say your page is on the url
          http://servername/directory/page.htm, in the same page browse to
          http://servername/directory/page.htm.LCK. You need to remove this or
          just edit it and remove the contents of it and save it.

          I guess, deleting the .LCK file still re-creates it on the fly. So try
          to edit the .LCK file and remove the contents of it and try.

          Later you may want to Create a Copy of the Current page and delete this
          page which is being locked out.
