RE: Public Access for File Resource Harkpabst Meliantrop 1.Jul.15 05:51 AM a Web browser Domino Designer 6.5.4Windows 2000
Here is an alternative without ... err, no ... with some completely different drawbacks.
The good news is: $PublicAccess DOES work absolutely fine with pages (tested on Domino >= 7.0.3). While this is still not ideal, it does not look as hacky to my as storing arbitrary stuff as CSS resources. :)
The bad news is: Designer does not provide GUI elements to set $PublicAccess. :(
The same is true for navigators by the way. My "solution" to this problem is a custom form, that uses a NotesNoteCollection with either nnc.SelectPages = True or nnc.SelectNavigators = True to list all pages/navigators with the current value of $PublicAccess. I have one button to select pages/navigators to add a $PublicAccess item with value "1" and another button to remove this item again.
The drawback is pretty obvious, but this is yet another way to skin the fat old Domino cat.
