I presume, I can't try the current version of PoshBoard unless roll back to Silverlight Beta 2. Just curious you show Silverlight in a widget which you probaly wrote for PoshBoard. Is it supposed to support widget resizing/maximizing which will be introduced in Dropthings v1.8

Yes you're right, there's slight update to do in order to use SL2 components, this will be available in the next version.

Widgets WILL support resizing/maximizing of dropthings 1.8, this point will be addressed in a post on my blog cause I think it's an interesting relationship between asp.net and silverlight.

Antoine, thanks for PoshBoard...it's really awesome!!

I wondered if you could tell me if a page can be made shared content that is only editable by the original author or a designated user role?

Thanks,

Hank

Hi Hank,

thanks for your interest in PoshBoard.

Theres isn't a direct function to do this, cause PoshBoard database doesn't handle creator name. But you have several way to do this that need some coding :

The simplest (not the absolute secured one) should be to put a condition on the display of the edit button, based on groups.

But by default Dropthings isn't designed for "page sharing" across multiple user, but that's something I plan to implement soon.

I'm still working on new features and wait for the next version of dropthings to release future PoshBoard.
