Chapter 3. Implementing Common Elements > Controlling SSI Editability

Controlling SSI Editability

SSIs are truly a powerful, double-edged sword. The major benefit of having one file-control element on multiple pages is equally balanced by the danger of such a configuration. The key factor that controls which way the sword swings is SSI editability. If your SSIs are never to be edited by anyone but a developer in Dreamweaver, steps must be taken to ensure that access to the SSIs is restricted. If you want a group within your site to be able to modify SSIs through Contribute, the SSIs must be handled a bit differently. With judicious care, you can even set up some SSIs for editing via Contribute while keeping others off-limits.

In this lesson, you'll see how the user typically experiences SSIs in Contribute, and how particular SSI files can be opened for editing in an external application through Contribute.
