    new to sitefinity .... i am looking to build a site which will be adminstered by a number of people , but then want to allow external clients to create say one page for themselves

    does sitefinity have enough granularity of control over users for me to allow this use ?



    thanks

    Hi kmv,

    The clients you have should also have access to the admin area if you want they to be able to manage theirs pages. Since version 3.6 we have implemented permissions per owner of pages or content items which means you can grant or deny a given owner independently of the other roles you have created.
    The situation with "only one page" is more complex, but there are different approaches. For example you can disable creating of more pages once a user has created one page - it could be done manually or programmatically( in case you are developing some custom form for creating pages.)

    Sincerely yours,

    i also note in the 4.0 roadmap the following


    Browse-and-edit feature
    This will allow users to edit the web site without logging into the administrative
    back-end.



    does this mean i can better achieve this micro site idea ?


    thanks

    Hello kmv,

    This feature will allow you to edit the website without logging to the admin area, then find the page, click "edit this page" etc. For instance there will be a login section on the front end, once a user has been logged he/she will be able to edit the page directly on the front end.
