Re: [NTISP] IIS4.0 and Front Page (Sub-Web Permissions) Help?

This sounds just about right,
However I wouldn't suggest giving the user full access to the front page web
(another words Administer/Author/Browse) I would only give them editing
(another words Author/Browse). The reason for this is because a user with
Administer access and actaully get into the permissions and reconfig them
for thier web.
Which is usually an un-wanted effect. However with the Administer turned
they can't rename their web or do any adminitrative task to it
(which is fine for most of our users here).
Hope this helps
