LImiting Contributor Edition

Is it or will it be possible to limit the Contributor edition to a certain Dir?

In this way you can have sub sites.  One for each client, contributor, etc.

An FTP publish location (current) has a Subdirectory field. The Contributor Edition won't have access to this field.

Are you running version 1.x? Does this field appear in the FTP publish location wizard (I think it's the second page) or is it new to version 2?

Dave, it was in 1.x... it had to be, otherwise the it would always publish to the default FTP location.. often not even the WWW root.

www,

Not quite the case in my instance. My ISP uses the account name (username) as the default folder and my Subfolders field is mt. Do some ISPs do it differently? This is my second ISP and both have handled it this way.

Even though my Subfolders field is mt everything works as expected.
Files are loaded to:
ftp.isp.com\username\FilesAndFolderFromCD
If I add anything to the subfolder field I get:
ftp.isp.com\username\SubfolderText\FilesAndFolderFromCD
I've been checking this with WS_FTP95 LE

The reason I ask is some doubt (now) exists as to the validity of the response I gave to '...'. If I've misinformed '...' can you force directories by putting "InYourSubfolder\AdditionalFolder" in the Subfolder field to publish deeper into your web-site?

The DC help file doesn't deal with default folders and/or creating Subfolders - at least not in sufficient detail to clear up the queries above.

"The DC help file doesn't deal with ..."
should read:
"The CD help file doesn't deal with ..."

sorry, dyslexia but I'm KO now :)

Dave, stick something like this "tk-jk.net/euphonic" in your in your publish location "subdirectory" and your "URL for preview." You can do directories as deep as you like.

Or, you can do a subdomain such as "ahoy.tk-jk.net" the same way.

Thanx tk,
I've got a handle on the bit that was confusing me.
