SUMMARY

This article explains how to set up a restricted-access Web in Microsoft FrontPage 2002.

A restricted-access Web is a Web site that only specific users are allowed to view. FrontPage does not support the restricting of pages, sections, or folders within a Web.

To set up a restricted-access Web in FrontPage, you must set the permissions in the Web to Only registered users have browse access. This is normally done with a subweb that has unique permissions. However, you can also set a root Web to Only registered users have browse access.

A subweb is a Web nested inside another Web. By default, all subwebs inherit the same permission settings as their parent Webs. However, you can establish unique permissions for subwebs. Each subweb can have its own set of permissions that specify who can browse, author, or administer it, and you can set up individual subwebs with different levels of permissions and different groups of users.

The following sets of steps show you how to create a subweb and set unique permissions.

Create a New Subweb

You can create a subweb in FrontPage by using any one of the following methods.

Method 1: Create a Subweb from a Wizard or a Template

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Page or Web.
  2. In the New Page or Web task pane, click Web Site Templates. In the Web Site Templates dialog box, select a Web layout.
  3. In the Specify the location of the new web drop-down list, type a new Web location or select your location from the list of available choices.

    For example, http://server name is a Root Web and http://server name/subweb name is a subweb.

    Note To create a disk-based subweb, type a path location that is similar to the following:
    C:\my web\subweb name
    Notice that you cannot set permissions on the Web until it is published to a server that is running the FrontPage Server Extensions.
  4. Click OK.

Method 2: Convert a Folder to a Subweb

  1. Start FrontPage, and then open a Web.
  2. In the Folder List, right-click the folder that you want to convert to a subweb, and then click Convert to Web.
  3. If you receive a message asking you to confirm the conversion, click Yes.

Method 3: Import a Web into a Folder and Convert the folder into a Subweb

  2. On the File menu, click Import.
  3. In the Import dialog box, click Add Folder or From Web, and then select the folders or Web that you want to import.
  4. Convert the folder to a subweb by using the steps that are described in Method 2.
