Web Developer Express Security

Is it possible to define a user somehow such that they can log in and edit content only on a ASPX page without the chance of them screwing the code-behind or any of the templates?
Watch Question

No, but you can compile your code behind in to a DLL, and then publish the project to another location that you can let the other user work on it.  They will only see the aspx pages, and a .dll file in the bin folder, no code behind files.


how do you go about doing this?
Normally you need Visual Studio.NET to accomplish this, but there is a way around that with Visual Web Developer Express.  Take a look here: http://swami-k.blogspot.com/2008/12/precompile-or-publish-websites-in.html
