a default page, not editable (6 posts)

    I want to provide a page by default that users can NOT edit.
    By default I mean kind of the default 'about' page, so a new blog has this set up.
    Users should not be able to edit this page however, or maybe turn of/on features à-la plugin.
    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    You'd have to create a higher level than Admin and assign ownership to that level for this to work.

    That's the only method I could see.

    A higher level than admin?
    But is this currenly possible in wpmu than?

    Okay what about just enabling that extra page by default, like the 'about' page?
    Which files do I have to snif for that?

    Or hardcode the page into every single theme you offer.

    That might work. I was thinking something like the home.php page we use on the main blog but I didn't know if that would work for the other themes. They would have to be created for each theme though.

    Probably have to recode the pages widget to add in a link as well as the wp_list_pages function. WordPress has a couple of different functions that lists Pages you would also have to edit. I would think though it would be fairly quick since it's just adding in a single link.

    I'd try Andrea's idea first. If it didn't work, my idea would probably require a lot of rewriting.
