To Whom It May Concern of this Forum:

I've been researching the whole night (and now early morning) on how to disable the Edit With Microsoft Office FrontPage (draw-down of File) feature to no avail even though I know it is possible.

To confront the nay-sayers, here's proof-positive evidence:
http://www.ryanseacrest.com/
On the above site, and virtually all clear channel company radio sites, when you click down on File, you'll see that Edit With Microsoft Office FrontPage is disabled.

I read that you are to type the following in the code, but it has not worked for me:
<meta http-equiv="editable" content="dream-on"/>
FOUND ON
http://codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=49442
Again, this does not work for me. Maybe I inserted it wrong? Where is the above <meta line supposed to be inserted in the code view of the web page?

The other incidental issue I have that I'd like to address is this: I found that a web site, naturalhandyman.com, has an extraordinary html encryption protection system: In the DESIGN VIEW, mind you, of his site on FrontPage, not the code view, all of his content is blocked out, replaced with a phrase such as, "[../_private/iipbotter.html]." HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? I'd like something like this! Do you know what he used?????? Also is he using a particular type of encryption software because it seems his search rank is not being affected at all?

Quick responses to both the disabling of the edit feature and the latter private block-out feature would be most appreciated.

Thanks, Ed

Oh my! Another one to add to abduraooft's 101 unanswerable questions! :D:D

edjohn2000 - the thread you mentioned made it clear that it cannot be done. And surely you can recognise that the suggestion

Try this never mentioned gem: <meta http-equiv="editable" content="dream-on"/>

is intended as a joke? :rolleyes: It means "That is impossible". (If you wish I'll explain what a joke is :p)

To be more serious, JavaScript is purely a client-side language, and unless used with an Ajax call has no capability to read from or write to a file (except a cookie), access a database or the client's operating system, or alter the default behaviour of the browser.

For your second question, Google "HTML encryption".


Helpdesk: Double click on "My Computer"
User: I can't see your computer.
Helpdesk: No, double click on "My Computer" on your computer.
User: Huh?
Helpdesk: There is an icon on your computer labeled "My Computer". Double click on it.
User: What's your computer doing on mine?

Phillip, you say it is impossible to disable Edit With Microsoft Office FrontPage, yet it's been clearly done, to wit:

http://www.ryanseacrest.com/

On the above site, and virtually all clear channel company radio sites, when you click down on File, you'll see that Edit With Microsoft Office FrontPage is disabled.

How then, sir, have their sites been able to disable such a feature if it's impossible? (And this question is open to everyone, of course. I need help solving this.)

Thanks

Google is your friend! Have a look at:-

and

Note that this is nothing to do with Javascript.

Okay, thanks Philip!

I'm really a novice at this and--sit down for this--I don't really know the difference between Javascript and HTML, and vice versa enough to understand their distinctions and, consequently, as you indicated, I erroneously posted in this sub-forum and I apologize for that.

Thanks againi, Philip!
