I would like to automate part of the process of creating public folders.  Specifically, I would like to remove "Owner" permissions and add "Publishing Author" permissions for specific users/folders using a script of some sort.

Any thoughts?

The following code allows you to create a folder using code. It uses the System.IO namespace.


string FolderName = "testFolder";
DirectoryInfo thisFolder = new DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("/files/" + FolderName));
           
if (!thisFolder.Exists)
{
    thisFolder.Create();
}

Hi RPPreacher,

Have a look at PFDavAdmin, it is a more powerful way to control public folder permissions (although, scripting may not be possible) however that would be the place to start looking.
