[Zope-PTK] <Newbie alert>How members can publish content on their home page?

I think it should be mentioned why DTML is not allowed. It is due to the
security problem; Trojan. When and if your members have DTML ability,
they can compromise your content security.

So, it is a good thing that your members are not allowed. As mentioned,
change from structured to HTML and just refer and create your home page
as it is any old HTML jungle.

There has to be easier way to do this... A wizard to set their home page
in HTML and warning about not being able to use DTML.

Best wishes
