    I would like to limit inline editing to only specific areas on a page - for example the header and footer should not be editable - is there a way to do this?

    Mark,

    Anything that you definitely don't want touched, you can put directly in the masterpage. That gets rid of any uncertainty. :)

    Agree 100% with Tim...headers and footers should be in the masterpage and only a few things added in page templates.

    Also don't forget...you can "Hide" the inline editing buttons sneakily with just some CSS :)

    the issue is, I need to maintain editability for some users, turn it off for others - works fine in back end, but inline seems to override roles

    Mark,

    In that case, you could try adding the editable region to a template in Sitefinity then limiting edit access to the templates through Roles.
