    flat heirarchy permissions

    fluffy1
      Hi,

      Am using Contribute in a large educational institution. We recently re-vamped our site and at the sayso of the developer adopted a 'flat' heirarchy, whereby all web-pages sit in the root directory. By default, all users in our institution do NOT have access to this directory.

      The problem: How do I set it up to allow Contribute users access only to the files they need? My problem is that if they can only access specific files in the dir and NOT the entire dir, then they run into problems with Contribute because it uses temporary files which inherit the permissions of the root dir (ie. no access). Allowing users full access to the directory (our present solution) poses a security risk.

      Thoughts? Thanks in advance :-)
