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.
