Is it possible to give a user edit rights to a specific page without having to give them rights to the entire space?

I need to be able to give users the capability to edit a sub-set of pages within a space, but don't want them to have the ability to edit other critical content within the space. How do I do this? I looked at page restrictions, but don't want to have to apply them to the large number of pages which I have, just so that someone can edit 2 or 3 pages.

Any suggestions?

In short the answer is no.... The way permissions work is that they are most open at the space level and become more restricted the further down the page hierarchy you go.

So to be able to edit ANY page in the space, they have to have space edit rights.

The only think you can do is change the structure of your space. Where the pages which are for colloboration are in one tree, and the pages which are not for editing are in another tree off the home page. You can then set the page restrictions in one place and every page under that will inherit the restrictions.

In summary, at the page level. you can only take away permissions, not grant them.
