Can I 'lock' a FP htm file so someone editing it can only change text?

Can I 'lock' a FP htm file so someone editing it can only change text?

(OP)
I want to make the maintenance of our site as 'idiot' proof as possible. Is there a way of stopping people changing anything apart from text when updating the site? Is there any other way of doing this, e.g. having people update a file which will automatically update a particular part of a web page?

What server are you running?

We are planning the site at the moment, and looking into doing it with front page. So we haven't committed to any server yet.

Don't give any idiots access!

RE: Can I 'lock' a FP htm file so someone editing it can only change text?

Well, I use for my company's intranet FPTemplates. They're pretty idiot-proof, depending on the idiocy factor of your idiots. A good training program on FrontPage really helped me out... I spent about 3 hours explaining things to a group, and then made myself available for one-on-one training for the next three weeks. But if you wanna just change text, then only give them access to the text file. use ASP's #include file = "../file.inc" and then only give your Idiots access to file.inc. this way, the page always is the same, never changes, and only the text is modifiable. Hope I helped.
