Figure 13.6. Use the Edit Role Settings dialog to configure particular options for an existing role. [View full size image]   The


Edit Role Settings dialog is divided into the following categories: General: Use the General screen, shown in Figure 13.6, as a way to enable or disable the role's ability to publish content to the live site. You can also create a text-based description of what the role can and can't do and also set the default home page (maybe a directory in the main site) for users of that role. For our purposes, we'll leave the options as they are. Folder/File Access: Use the options shown in Figure 13.7 to set specific folders that users can edit. Because we want users to be able to edit all HTML files, we'll leave the options as they are. By default, Dreamweaver doesn't allow users to delete files even if they have permission to do so. If you want to allow users to delete files, simply enable the Allow Users to Delete Files They Have Permission to Edit check box. Figure 13.7. Use the Folder/File Access screen to enable only specific folders in the site root and to allow users permission to delete files.

Options include editing restrictions, including the addition of images, paragraph spacing properties similar to the ones set when the Administration screen first opened, and miscellaneous editing options including accessibility and third-party options. Because our company is strict about the overall look of the website, we'll want to restrict the Publisher role so that it can only make text edits and format changes. You can do that by selecting the Only Allow Text Editing and Formatting radio button. Figure 13.8. Use options in the Editing screen to set how users interact with editing features in Contribute.

For instance, we can set preferences that restrict the addition of styles to those contained in the styles.css file located in the root of our Dorknozzle directory. To do this, enable the Show Only CSS Styles Included in This CSS File radio button and browse to the CSS file located in the root of the Dorknozzle directory. Also disable the Allow Users to Apply Fonts and Sizes, the Allow Users to Apply Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough, and Fixed Width Styles, and the Allow Users to Apply Font and Background Color check boxes. Setting these properties forces users to implement styles in the styles.css file as set by the marketing department (and perhaps as outlined in a corporate style guide of some sort). The result of the changes made to this screen resemble those in Figure 13.9. Figure 13.9. Use options in the Styles and Fonts screen to set what kind of style properties can be applied to pages in Contribute.

If you do, enable the check boxes and also decide whether or not to use Dreamweaver templates (discussed in Chapter 15, "Working with Templates") or if you decide not to use templates, make a specific page or set of pages available to them when they open the New Document dialog.
