When you reduce permissions for a user in a FrontPage subweb (for example, if you demote a FrontPage Administrator to be a FrontPage Author only), the reduction does not take effect and the user still has the original (higher) level of access to the FrontPage Web.

Note: It is possible to incrementally increase an account's permissions from Browse to Author to Administer, but it is not possible to reduce the accounts permissions.


A comment in the source code indicates that the author intended to treat the root of each Web differently than other folders; however, what it actually does is treat the root Web differently than it treated the subwebs.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1/SR-1a.
