The content that you create in FrontPage for your site will be publicly available
when you publish your site to the Internet. However, there are times when
you may want portions of your content to be restricted so that it cannot be
viewed by the public. You may have a site where your customers are required
to provide information that should be left confidential such as their address
and credit card number. In order to protect this information from the people
who should not see it, you need to add security features to your Web. Select
Tools on the main menu bar on the top of the screen, then select Security,
and then Permissions. You may find that these are grayed out so that you cannot
select them. This may be because the server that is hosting your Web is not
equipped with FrontPage extensions. If this is true, then all of your content
will be publicly available when published. If the server has the proper extensions,
then you can restrict access to certain information.
When you open the Permissions dialog box you can allow individuals to so
one of the following three things with Webs and Subwebs: browse the Web, author
and browse the Web, or administer, author, and browse the Web.
If you select Tools on the top menu bar, and then Web Settings, you will
bring up the Web Settings dialog box. With these settings, you can set-up
rules that affect the basic structure of your Web. There are six tabs at the
top of the box that you can select in order top edit your settings.
