FrontPage 98 Permissions Mechanism

Posted on 2000-04-24

I am trying to introduce a permission mechanism for our intranet web pages. The goal is providing access to some documents to different people. To accomplish that, I made some changes to the permissions. It used to be set as "Use same permissions as root web". Now I changed to "Use unique permissions for this web". The problem is that if I change a permission for a page in one of the directory, the change is affecting all web pages. In other words, I cannot set different permissions for different web pages/subdirectories. Is there any explanations/suggestions to this problem?

Yeah, well the permission is for the "entire" web. You can not set permissions by page.

But you can built sub- or childwebs with different permissions. That way you can set permissions for each folder and all the files in it at least.

How can I set up different permissions for different sub-folders? It seems if I change permission on one sub-folder, it affect all folders.

The trick is to create different subfolders as subwebs. And for subwebs you can edit different permissions.

Another method is possible. Try it and read the following tutorial: http://tvsecure.net/manual/manual4.html 

You don't need the fp permissions for that.

Hey, yongsukp?

I am sure my answers to your question were honest and describe the possible technical solution as best as possible.

Maybe you don't like the way a password protection is handled (by directory) on a webserver, but that's the way it really is.

Grade A or B would have been OK, "D" was not very kind.

Hi astyanax,

Sorry, but the solution is not acceptable (at least for me). Here is a better one.

If you have structure the web into subfolders as you give different permissions to each subfoler and create different local user groups to provide  permissions using NT file manager, you can provide different permissions to each subfolder without creating separate web for each subfolder.

If you give this answer, I would give you C even though I already knew about it. In order to get A or B, I hoped someone show me some secret way of doing it using FrontPage or suggest me a third party product to address this issue.

Thank you for your effort, but it wasn't what I expected.

Good luck!
