Contribute Does Not Render Style Sheet in Edit Mode

We have numerous editors on Adobe Contribute 3 and 4.  For some reason, those with Cont. 4 who are using a Key other than "Administrator" (that is, their use is restricted to relevant directories) are able to successfully edit the proper pages, but the Edit mode does not render our stylesheet properly!  Could this be a permissions problem on the web server?  The stylesheet is linked inside a cfinclude in the main template.

Thoughts?!  Thanks!

Hi ajw_93,

Older versions of Contribute have problems with includes.  Is the cfinclude statement using a relative or absolute path?

A relative path.  It is inside the DWT template.

Hmm, neither of these seems to work.  We still have the same issue of Cont. not rendering the style sheets properly in Edit mode.  When I created a new template to test these changes out, Contribute does not download the new template even though it is stored in the Templates folder on the server.  Again, users with an "Admin" key (all permissions) have no problems; users with any sort of group-restricted key have this problem.  Does anyone besides me believe it is a permissions issue?  I am quite new to Contribute and I believe we have an Apache server which I also know virtually nothing about.  Thanks!!
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Definitely not an apace problem.

It shouldn't be a permissions issue unless the CSS or some other, necessary, include has been placed somewhere that
you've told Contribute is off-limits to the lower user.  Alternately, check the role definition to see if styles are enabled...

Jason, thanks for the suggestion.  I changed to absolute path in the wrong place but when I did it correctly, it worked beautifully!  Our problem is solved!  Thanks again.
